    I can't find a link either Destee, until I do I'll consider it a hoax...although I am aware that he has cancer.

    First off, if you want me to post the link I found it on, let me know. Secondly, I just read a 4-page article on that, and it is very sad, but he did pass away via natural cause. We are going to experience a painful few weeks for the next few weeks is you ask me, especially those practicing law. Why is it that at his death, I find out about his great accomplishments?

    RIP Johnnie Cochran, and God Bless the FULL Cochran family!
