Gianni Versace’s longtime partner Antonio D’Amico is giving an exclusive interview to Dateline on April 28. D’Amico speaks to Keith Morrison about the fashion icon who was shot dead on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion in July 1997. Versace’s murderer was serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who was accused of committing four other murders in a three-month period. After killing Versace, Cunanan, 27, shot himself dead in a houseboat with the same gun he used to kill his five victims.
Actor Edgar Ramirez (The Girl on the Train, Joy, Zero Dark Thirty) will play Versace in the forthcoming FX mini-series Versace: American Crime Story. Darren Criss (Glee) will play Cunanan. The series will be based on the book “Vulgar Favors” by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth who notes in the book that Cunanan tested with an I.Q. of 147. The two-hour special about Versace on Dateline NBC airs Friday, April 28 at 9pm.
