A fingerprint found at the scene of Chicago real estate developer Lee Miglin's killing matches that of alleged serial killer Andrew Phillip Cunanan, police said. Police have suspected Cunanan since Miglin, 72, was found dead in May. A warrant for Cunanan's arrest was filed shortly before he committed suicide in Miami Beach, Fla., last month. But police were unable to match his fingerprints to the one at the scene until Tuesday, police spokesman Paul Jenkins said.

Can the development of the world's tallest building survive the demise of the Trump era of mega-hype and mega-real estate deals? That's the question that seems to bother J. Paul Beitler the most as he and his partner, Lee Miglin, scramble to persuade wary financiers to back their grandiose, $450-million plan to build a pencil-thin, 125-story, 1,999-foot sky-piercer in Chicago's Loop.

Authorities expanded their search Saturday for a man wanted in connection with three slayings in the Midwest after a New Jersey cemetery caretaker was found shot to death. Investigators said they had no solid leads on the whereabouts of Andrew Phillip Cunanan, who is believed to be traveling in the caretaker's red pickup truck. "He could be anywhere," Sheila Horan, an FBI spokeswoman in Philadelphia, said at a news conference. "We're obviously trying to run down leads."

Last month, as Andrew Cunanan was cutting a violent swath across the United States, the Los Angeles Police Department's pawnshop detail received an unusual heads-up from federal law enforcement authorities. The L.A. detectives were told to keep on the lookout for any signs that Cunanan might try to pawn items for money that could sustain him while he remained on the lam. The location turned out not to be right, but the warning was dead on.

Even in death, Andrew Cunanan eluded police. When the 27-year-old fugitive took his life in a houseboat moored at Miami Beach, he took with him the best chance that a cross-country string of murders will ever be explained. The suicide, foiling the quest for answers, was a fitting denouement to a case that left five other dead men scattered over four states while the suspect openly taunted pursuers. The 2 1/2-month series of killings is over. But frustration lingers.

Five months after fashion designer Gianni Versace was murdered on the steps of his oceanfront mansion, police on Tuesday closed their investigation into the sensational crime--concluding that San Diego hustler Andrew Cunanan was the killer and that he had acted alone. The 27-year-old Cunanan, a suspect in four other killings, took his own life with the same pistol he had used to slay Versace after hiding out for 10 days in a houseboat following the July 15 slaying.

More than 700 people--some citizens of the world of high fashion and others just citizens of the world--turned out for a memorial service for Gianni Versace on Friday, while outside the church police almost outnumbered onlookers, just in case the designer's suspected slayer showed up.
