Simpson's Heisman turns up



BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - O.J. Simpson's Heisman trophy finally turned up and was delivered to the courthouse Wednesday.

The families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman had been demanding the trophy to help satisfy the $33.5 million judgment against Simpson for the slaying of his ex-wife and her friend.

Simpson has claimed he didn't know where it was.

The trophy was delivered by someone from the office of Ira Friedman, sheriff's Deputy Bob Killeen said. Friedman is the lawyer for Ms. Simpson's father, Lou Brown, executor of her estate.

Killeen did not know how the transfer came about. Friedman did not immediately return a telephone message.

The trophy was awarded in 1968 for Simpson's exploits as a University of Southern California running back. A Simpson attorney said recently that it had been valued at $400,000.
