Carmelita Durio, O.J. Simpson’s sister, died on Monday, April 2 in Sacramento hospital, according to the LA Times. Durio first showed signs of being ill when she collapsed in a Las Vegas courtroom when Simpson was convicted of robbery and kidnapping. She was believed to be in her early 60s although the cause of death has yet to be determined. Durio had been in the hospital for the last three weeks but was released. She returned only to fall into a coma and experience kidney failure. She is survived by her husband Charles and her sister Shirley Baker. Simpson remains in a Nevada state prison where he is serving a nine to 33 year sentence in prison.—WLW
