they please CATFUSEDINCANADA Dear Catfused The cats may be lovable to you but not everyone is a cat lover Also many people are allergic to animal fur When your neighbor visits keep the cats in

Andrew Cunanan the suspected serial killer who eluded a nationwide manhunt for nearly three months shot himself to death in a houseboat just 2 miles from where Gianni Versace was gunned down All across the nation our citizens can stand down and breathe a sigh of relief The reign of terror brought upon us by Andrew Cunanan is police Chief Richard Barreto said today As the sun peeked over the horizon Cunanans body was removed from the floating home more than 14 hours after the siege began Wednesday The suspected serial killers face was blown said John Walsh of Foxs Americas Most who visited the scene The shot to the face slowed the identification It was more than 10 hours before police confirmed the body in the house was Cunanan The shot to the face made the identification of the body much more MetroDade Mayor Alex Penelas said In addition to that the only other available method of identifying the body was Stanley Trail of DeKalb father of Jeffrey Trail one of the men Cunanan is believed to have killed said Im very glad that hes been stopped and that nobody else got hurt when he got stopped But I take no joy in his death That doesnt help me at Thats one of the bad things about him dying like this Nobody will be able to ask the elder Trail said Nobody will be able to tell me why this And investigators had not found a suicide note as of early today leaving unsolved much of the mystery as to what may have triggered the cross country killing spree More than 100 police and FBI agents surrounded the floating two story home Wednesday night after a report of a gunshot coming from inside The best guess is that Cunanan killed himself as a caretaker arrived to check on the property MetroDade police director Carlos Alvarez said Police on the outside had no idea Cunanan had shot himself They shouted Come out Come out but the man believed hiding inside did not respond They waited for hours before going in and finding Cunanans body There was an unprecedented level of pressure put on this man by law enforcement and media Barreto said I think he was a desperate person He was in a situation where it was very very difficult for him to move Barreto said Cunanan was identified by his thumbprint and the gun found inside the houseboat was similar to the one used in three of five killings in which Cunanan was a suspect The 27yearold Cunanan shot up to the top of the FBIs most wanted list as the prime suspect in the slayings of Versace and four other men fn Minnesota Illinois and New Jersey After the Versace slaying on July 15 Cunanan abandoned a stolen pickup truck belonging to one of his victims in a parking garage and vanished We were probably prepared for something like said FBI spokeswoman Coleen Rowley A person who is using desperate means and exhibiting this kind of violent behavior you have to be prepared for a very violent Residents near the houseboat had reported seeing a man matching Cunanans description after Versace was shot to death on the front steps of his mansion On Wednesday a caretaker who stopped by the home called police to report a gunshot The houseboat is 2 miles from the Versace mansion and about a mile from the hotel where a man fitting Cunanans description stayed for as long as two months before Versaces slaying For four hours police waited outside the houseboat which sits on a branch of the Intracoastal Waterway called Indian Creek After firing volleys of tear gas the SWAT team walked slowly in a line into the house After nearly an hour inside police announced their search had come up empty After another roombyroom search they found the body of Cunanan who had been described by his mother as a gay gigolo Court Report County Court at Law July 21 Alexander Jan plea of no contest presumption of theft by
