DANA POINT, Calif. – Louis Brown Jr., the father of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, has died at his Southern California home, a family attorney said Saturday. He was 90.

Brown died Thursday in the seaside community of Dana Point, attorney Natasha Roit said in an email. A statement issued on behalf of the family did not include a cause of death.
