OJ Simpson Heisman Trophy Recovered, Two Decades Later

The trophy was stolen in 1994, ahead of Simpson's murder trial.

The burglars dismantled Plexiglas displays in Heritage Hall to reach the jersey and trophy, which was a duplicate given to the university for Simpson’s 1968 season.

The recovered trophy is in the custody of the LAPD, police said, and the investigation is ongoing. Police did not say how they recovered the trophy.

Simpson’s personal Heisman Trophy was seized under the $33.5 million civil judgment and auctioned in 1999 for $230,000.

Simpson is currently imprisoned after a 2008 conviction for kidnapping and armed robbery in a hotel room heist in Las Vegas.
