Takeover Episode – Book of the Dead Podcast

Part 1 :
When people hear the name Andrew Cunanan, most people think of the murder of Gianni Versace, but Gianni was not Andrew's only victim. In Part 1 we discuss Andrew's life growing up, and some key players in this horrific case. Andrew Cunanan was wicked smart, charismatic, and ridiculously handsome, and he could have had it all until he threw it all away and took 5 innocent lives in the process.

Part 2:
In Part One we told you all about the life of Andrew Cunanan leading up to the murders. In Part Two, we tell you about the murders and give you some background on each one of his victims. We may never know the true motive behind why Andrew took the lives of five innocent people, but what we do know, is that they deserve to be remembered and they deserved to live their lives to the fullest, but Andrew took that away from them.

"The 1st story, without knowing the why, is simply tragic. The 2nd story, is a head shaker! All the women who put up with men who won't work, would be happy with one who worked a night shift. But then after Owen's actions: was that just a poorly crafted story to get out of a relationship with an unstable man? We'll never know the answer to that one either..."
