‘American Crime Story’ takes on murder of Versace

In the spring and summer of 1997, before everyone used Google to find whatever they wanted, before everyone used Facebook to creep on old crushes, before cell phones were in everyone’s pocket, recording every bit of life around them — before cell phones were cameras that could make phone calls — the nation was gripped by a cross-country manhunt.

The suspect: a serial killer who had struck in Minnesota, Chicago and New Jersey. The motive: unclear; the victims had no apparent connection. The method: bludgeoning, shooting, stabbing — brutal deaths that kept investigators of the FBI and local authorities guessing until clues linked the killings to Andrew Cunanan, a college dropout with no discernible job except cruising gay bars, occasionally selling drugs, and striking up relationships with rich, older men and spending their money.

In May 1997, Cunanan was added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list — certainly a level of

Why “American Crime Story” took on murder and manhunt in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”

The latest iteration of FX and Ryan Murphy’s anthology drama “American Crime Story” differs in a dramatic way from its predecessor, “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”

This time, we see the murder.

Murphy calls “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” a “manhunt thriller.”

The iconic fashion designer was gunned down in front of his mansion in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood in 1997 by 27-year-old Andrew Cunanan. Described at the time as a “gigolo” by Martha Orth, whose book the series is based on, Cunanan had already been on a killing spree that landed him on the FBI’s most-wanted list.

Since Cunanan would take his own life before authorities were able to arrest him, “ACS” tries to examine why Versace became a target. Murphy insists the term “assassination” is accurate, although some would label Cunanan a psychopath and serial killer.

“’Assassination’ has a political overtone, and I think it denotes somebody who is taking the life of

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Denver Fugitive Operations team officers arrested one of ERO’s most wanted fugitives Friday morning in Aurora, Colorado, making a second arrest in the process.
