Johnnie Cochran is dead at 67
Johnny Cochran, who got O.J. Simpson off for two murders, has died at the age of 67, according to a CNN report.
Famed attorney Johnnie Cochran, 67, perhaps best known for his defense of O.J. Simpson, died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles. “I loved him as a good Christian man; I look at Johnny as a great Christian,” Simpson told CNN. “I knew him as that. He was a great guy.”
Simpson said he last saw Cochran at an L.A. Lakers basketball game a few months ago and found the flamboyant lawyer to be in good spirits. “We were praying for him then, and I still am,” Simpson said.
Simpson added that he knew Cochran long before he hired the African-American lawyer to lead his ‘Dream Team’ defense. “I was in social circles with Johnnie and we knew each other in that way,” he said.
