The crime scene by Gianni Versace was not as chaotic as the "American Crime Story" of FX.
Carlos Noriega – a former lieutenant in charge of violent crimes Miami Beach Unit PD: he tells us that he was the fourth person to arrive on the scene in 1997.
He says that, contrary to what & # 39; ACS & # 39; portrayed in the premiere of Wednesday night, a tourist did NOT escape from an officer to dip a Versace magazine ad in his fresh blood … and then go free of scot. Noriega says that will never happen … and, frankly, he could not have done it.
Instead of covering a small perimeter around the crime scene as described by "ACS", Noriega says the police taped a much wider area around Ocean Blvd. – and anyone standing was far enough away. He also says that there were not as many spectators on day 1.
FX had a disclaimer on the program that tells viewers that the series was based on real events, but that some of its performances were "combined or imagined for dramatic ". and interpretative purposes. "
By the way … the whole announcement of the magazine was reported in a Newsweek article back then, an account that was never confirmed.
