On July 15, 1997, the flamboyant fashion designer was shot dead on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion. His murderer? A serial killer on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Writer Maureen Orth’s explosive account revealed how the police failed to track him down. Now her book has been made into a TV series, with Penélope Cruz playing the woman who went on to run her brother’s empire, Donatella Versace.
He acts, he sings, he dances. And in his latest role, the 30-year-old, who shot to fame with “Glee,” is the serial killer who murdered Gianni Versace. By MICHAEL SCHULMAN JAN….
Gianni Versace appears to have been the crescendo of a cross-country murder spree that landed 27-year-old Andrew Cunanan on the F.B.I.’s Ten Most Wanted list.
