On This Day 15th July 1997: Versace murdered on his doorstep

Versace 2

Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace was shot dead on the steps of his Miami mansion.
The incident happened shortly before 0900 local time (1400 GMT) as the 50-year-old designer returned from the fashionable News Café where he bought breakfast and Italian newspapers.
Witnesses described a white man in his mid-twenties (suspect Andrew Cunanan) taking a gun from a backpack and shooting Versace twice in the back of the head as he unlocked the gates to his Ocean Drive home.
Following America's biggest manhunt, detectives traced Andrew Cunanan to a houseboat three miles from the murder scene on 25 July 1997. After a five-hour siege a swat team stormed the boat and found Cunanan dead. He had shot himself in the head with the gun he used to kill Versace.

His self-portraits form a unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surveyed himself without vanity and with the utmost sincerity.
