FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Two men obviously committed suicide, police said, in a suite at the Miami Beach inn that Gianni Versace transformed into his manor, almost 24 years to the day after the style architect kicked the bucket on the structure’s front advances.
Their bodies were found by housekeeping on Wednesday, the night before the commemoration of Versace’s killing by a speculated chronic executioner. A primer examination managed it “an obvious twofold self destruction,” Miami Beach representative Ernesto Rodriguez said Thursday in an email.
The scene was contained to the suite, and criminal investigators are as yet exploring the passings of Adam Rashap, 31, of Randolph, New Jersey, and Alexander Gross, 30, of York, Pennsylvania, police said.
Versace was gunned down on the morning of July 15, 1997, as he got back from the News Cafe, a couple of squares down Ocean Drive. Andrew Cunanan, who was associated with killing four gay men from Minneapolis to New Jersey, shot him twice in the head at point-clear reach.
Following a huge cross country manhunt that kept going nine days, Cunanan, 27, committed suicide in a houseboat where he had been concealing a few miles (kilometers) from the chateau. His demise left specialists with not many responses to what exactly propelled his killing binge.
“There was no self destruction note and no correspondence to reflect why he perpetrated the crimes,″ then-Miami Beach Police Chief Richard Barreto said at that point.
During the 1990s, alongside Giorgio Armani, Versace was viewed as Italy’s driving prepared to-wear planner and an image of Italian style.
The Casa Casuarina was worked in 1930 and was partitioned into lofts when Versace purchased and changed over the property in 1992. It has worked as a shop lodging since 2015.
