Thirteen years ago today, Gianni Versace was murdered on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion. The case remains a tragic one, as Versace (age 50) was returning from a morning stroll to the coffee shop when serial killer Andrew Cunanan fatally shot him, a month after Cunanan made the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. Cunanan committed suicide before he could be caught and brought to justice. Take a look at your wardrobe?Versace-filled or not?and have a moment of silence today. [Encyclopedia Britannica]
