"Dying to Be Famous: The Versace Murders" of 1997, on ABC 20-20: about spree killer Andrew Cunanan


Tonight ABC 20-20 aired the retrospective report “Dying to Be Famous: the Versace Murders”, best link here.

The disturbing story concerns spree killer Andrew Cunanan, who killed two former lovers in Minneapolis in the spring of 1997, then another elderly sugar daddy in Chicago in May, and then drove to Miami Beach (through Philadelphia and New Jersey, where he killed a cemetery attendant to steal a car) and killed Gianni Versace, shooting him on the front door of his home in broad daylight.

 Cunanan would commit suicide in a houseboat when collared by police.
 


Cunanan had a high “IQ”, but also narcissistic personality disorder.  His is one of the most disturbing ever in the gay community, and this is very unusual.  Cunanan’s nihilism seemed to be like that of James Holmes in 2012.
 
John Walsh narrated the episode.
