Why There Are Still So Many Unanswered Questions About The Murder Of Gianni Versace

Italian-born fashion designer Gianni Versace had it all: a successful business, mansions around the world, celebrity friends and millions in the bank, but none of it could protect him from a crazed serial killer who took his life along with four other victims in the spring and summer of 1997. Before committing suicide, Andrew Cunanan cut a swath from Minneapolis to Miami, his killings careening from former lovers to crimes of opportunity, his victims including millionaires, war veterans, real estate developers and cemetery caretakers.

Andrew Cunanan grew up in a working class suburb of San Diego, California, the youngest of four children. His Filipino-American father and Italian-American mother enrolled him in an exclusive prep school, where a yearbook called him “Most Likely to be Remembered,” according to CBS’ “48 Hours.” He reportedly had a genius level IQ of 147, and friends and acquaintances recall him as being fashionable, flamboyant and

Is Jeffrey Dahmer Still In Jail? He Only Completed Part Of His Prison Sentence

Another day, another true crime docuseries. This time, Oxygen’s Dahmer On Dahmer (airing parts one and two on Nov. 12 on Oxygen at 8 p.m. ET) delves into the mind of Jeffrey Dahmer, one of the world’s most infamous serial killers. The two-night special promises to unearth new insight into his gruesome crimes, but now 25 years removed from his conviction, it begs the question: Is Jeffrey Dahmer still in jail?

According to The New York Times, he was bludgeoned by a fellow inmate, and died of massive head injuries after being rushed to a nearby hospital. Christopher Scarver, who was also serving time for murder, later admitted to killing Dahmer.

Experts still clueless on what drives mass murder 50 years after unhinged man fatally blasts six

On an autumn Monday morning 50 years ago, Leo Held piloted his blue station wagon along his customary 17-mile roller coaster commute up and down the ridge-and-valley Appalachians of north-central Pennsylvania.

Middle age had arrived early for Held, a married father of four children, ages 5 to 19. Doughy and balding, he had just turned 40 but looked eligible for a senior discount.

Held choked the steering wheel that morning — Oct. 23, 1967 — as he drove toward the Lock Haven, Pa., paper mill where he worked, seething over the affronts he used to rationalize what he was about to do.

Friends and colleagues would later describe Held as an ordinary man. But his mind played a nonstop reel of umbrage-taking. He felt persecuted for conflicts that reasonable adults would brush off or talk through.

Attorney Says Teen’s Family Still Supports Her After She Live-Streamed Crashed That Killed Little Sister

As Obdulia Sanchez sits in jail in connection with a July wreck that left her younger sister dead — an incident she live-streamed — her family grieves the loss of two children, the teen’s defense attorney tells PEOPLE.

“The family, they are supporting Obdulia,” says her court-appointed lawyer, Ramnik Samrao.

“They know it was an accident,” he says. “But they have lost two daughters now, that’s very hard to deal with. They just want her to come home.”

Sanchez, 18, is accused of drunkenly crashing her car into a field near Los Banos, California, on July 21, killing her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, and seriously injuring Jacqueline’s friend — all while filming what happened on her phone and broadcasting it on social media.

Authorities have said Sanchez lost control of her vehicle, ejecting both of her passengers, who

Oxygen Examines Case of Ex-Cop Drew Peterson’s Still-Missing Fourth Wife 10 Years After Disappearance
