LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say they've recovered a Heisman Trophy honoring O.J. Simpson more than 20 years after it was stolen from the University of Southern California.
The LAPD said in a statement Tuesday that the trophy was recovered but would give no further details on where or how they found it.
The trophy was stolen during a 1994 burglary at the school's athletic department.
Police say the recovered Heisman was the duplicate that is given to the university of the winning player and not the one given to Simpson himself in 1968.
That trophy was seized under a $33.5 million judgment after a civil court found Simpson liable for the 1994 deaths of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted in criminal court.
