PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Authorities claim fashion designer Gianni Versace was murdered by gay hustler Andrew Cunanan, but an upcoming book claims it may have been the Mafia.
According to Gianni Versace: Fashions Last Emperor (Trans-Atlantic Publishing), some onlookers say they saw a dead sparrow next to Versaces corpse which is a Mafia trademark.
Others believe the Mob may have wanted Versace bumped off because he refused to go into business with them.
A private detective named Frank Monte also claims the Mafia used Cunanan as a patsy by killing him before Versace was hit and then storing his body in a freezer until he could be framed with Versaces murder.
Gianni Versace: Fashions Last Emperor will hit stores on March 23.
