A medical examiner reports Simpson suffered blunt force head injuries and died at a Fort Worth hospital. Manner of death was homicide.

Simpson ran “Mr. Don’s Whistle Stop.” He was arrested in 2007 and faced more than a dozen charges of aggravated sexual assault, indecency with a child or sexual abuse.

Records show Simpson was repeatedly found incompetent to stand trial and spent time at state hospitals.
