48 Hours looks into Gianni Versace murder


Nearly two decades after beloved fashion designer Gianni Versace was gunned down outside of his Miami mansion, the question still exists of whether he had somehow crossed paths with his killer before that fateful morning.

Versace, a designer who dressed some of the most famous women in the world from Princess Diana to celebrities Elizabeth Hurley and Courtney Love, was shot dead on the morning of July 15, 1997. The killer walked up, shot him twice execution style, and then walked off, leaving Versace to bleeding to death on the steps to his home.

The death rocked the fashion world. The investigation into what happened would uncover a killer who thrived on attention and was willing to kill friends.

The killer, Andrew Cunanan, killed himself.

48 Hours investigates the case on Sunday in a report called "Murder by Design." Richard Schlesinger spoke to CBS12 anchor Eric Roby about the investigation.
