Trial Begins For Danish Submariner Accused Of Dismembering American Journalist

Peter Madsen, a Danish inventor and submariner, has been accused of killing and dismembering American journalist Kim Wall after parts of her body were discovered in Koge Bay. Now, after changing his version of the events that lead to the death numerous times, the trial for Madsen has begun.

Wall, a prolific journalist who had written for The New York Times, Harper’s and The Atlantic, had been interviewing Madsen on assignment. She went missing on August 10, 2017. On Aug 21, her torso was discovered, thus initiating a search for more evidence in her death.

Madsen had originally claimed he Wall had safely left his submarine. He later changed his story and said that Wall had died from an accidental blow to the head aboard the vessel. Eventually, he admitted to having a part in her death, saying that he dismembered her in a state of “suicidal psychosis” before sinking his

Andrew Cunanan’s Gold Digging Leads Down A Dangerous Path in ‘American Crime Story: Versace’ (Ep 6)

Episode 6 of “American Crime Story: Versace” picks up in California in 1996, a year before Andrew Cunanan’s murder spree began. Cunanan found himself in some kind of luxury abode, wrapping presents from Tiffany’s and toting bags from Saks Fifth Avenue. Some lines of cocaine are conspicuously apparent on a nearby table.

Cunanan obviously shacked up with some rich older man while “employed” as his “interior decorator.” He wonders aloud to a friend, Lizzie, about a certain blonde paramour, obviously referring to David Madson.

“Who are you trying to be?” asks Lizzie, unsure of what she’s witnessing.

Moments later Trail arrives at the party. Cunanan gifts Trail some expensive clothes in the hopes of making him look more high class in front of his new crush. Cunanan instructs Trail to lie and say he’s still in the Navy. Trail refuses.

When Madson arrives, Andrew finds himself caught in a

‘American Crime Story’ Versace Ep. 3 Explores The Secret Gay Lives Of Cunanan’s Victims

Episode three starts in May of 1997, a perfume salesperson on a home shopping network anxiously calls her husband from the airport. Crime aficionados will have recognized that her last name is shared with one of Cunanan’s victims. She comes home to find melted ice cream on the kitchen table and an otherwise empty and undisturbed house. A neighbor investigates while the police are called. 

A scream.

“I knew it.”

One week earlier in Chicago. Marilyn Miglin is giving some form of motivational speech and notes that “so often we are told that the American dream is dead,” while espousing some boot-strap rhetoric about hard work and success. She describes Lee as “the perfect husband.”

Murphy, once again without subtlety, is making a statement on gay life before the current social movement we find ourselves in: when good, kind people had to keep their sexualities hidden and sublimate

Gianni Versace’s Partner Says ‘American Crime Story’ Is ‘Fictitious’

The longtime partner of Gianni Versace is coming out against his portrayal in the crime drama American Crime Story. According to People, Antonio D’Amico finds significant parts of the TV series to be inaccurate, including his relationship with the fashion designer.

“Significant parts of the [series] on Gianni Versace’s murder do not reflect the reality of the events that took place,” says D’Amico. “I feel — together with those who know me well — that my character … is a misrepresentation of myself and what our relationship was like.” In the series, Gianni wants a family and D’Amico stops him because of his own playboy lifestyle. “Neither Gianni nor I were looking to get married or to have children,” he says. “All we wanted was to live our relationship in the open — as we did. We were more than happy to have the nieces and nephews that we had and were not

Versace’s Murderer Plays Dangerous Sex Games In ‘American Crime Story’ Episode 2

1994, Miami: Gianni Versace and Antonio D’Amico are in a hospital. Versace confesses to a nurse his fears of dying and recalls the death of a sibling in his childhood. The allusions to AIDS here are not subtle, but a certain poetry is created by using silence around the disease itself — a silence characteristic of that time period. Back at the mansion, Donatella wonders what will become of Versace (the brand) without Gianni.

Donatella confronts D’Amico, implying Versace’s condition is his fault and blaming the excesses of their lifestyle on Versace’s downfall.

Back to 1997 where fans of Versace are putting flowers on the footsteps of his mansion in his memory, shortly after his murder. D’Amico and Donatella’s feud continues, with the latter telling the former, “There’s no need for us to pretend anymore.”

Before the murder of Versace: Cunanan is seen stealing license plates. His mood is elevated as he drives in a

Versace Family Slams New Season Of ‘American Crime Story,’ Calls It ‘A Work Of Fiction’

Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed anthology series “American Crime Story” is set to explore the many facets of the murder of Gianni Versace. After receiving numerous awards for “The People V. O. J. Simpson,” expectations are high for the upcoming program.

Members of the Versace family, however, have issued a public statement disavowing the show, proclaiming many (if not all) of the events depicted are fictitious.

“The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace. Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction,” reads the family’s statement.

Gianni Versace, a legendary fashion designer, was killed at his Miami home on July 15, 1997. The murder, which was executed by a serial killer
