The Murder of Gianni Versace

by Gordon Wood

On the 15th of July 1997 the world of fashion was changed forever. Gianni Versace had decided to have a change of routine. Instead of sending out an assistant, as he usually would, to collect the morning papers, Versace travelled down to his local coffee shop to get them himself. As he returned home to his Miami Beach mansion, Andrew Cunanan pounced. Firing his gun and shooting Versace twice, a fashion icon fell to his knees and left the world shocked. An eyewitness at the scene said: “There were two shots fired in his head. The police came very fast; they were trying to help him, revive him.” Two shots in the head, destroying a brilliant mind forever.
