Today, the world lost a philandering drunk who killed a girl back in 1969… and also lost a gifted crime writer:
Writer Dominick Dunne has died, Vanity Fair is reporting. He was 83.
He died of bladder cancer today at home in Manhattan, said his son, actor-director Griffin Dunne.
Dunne was a best-selling author who also spent 25 years as a correspondent and editor with Vanity Fair. He covered some of the most celebrated figures and their legal travails.
