The summer of death has claimed another. CNN reports that Dominick Dunne, Hollywood producer, best-selling author and frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, passed away at his home in Manhattan today after a long battle with bladder cancer. He was 83.
Dominick’s first article for Vanity Fair was in 1984 and it was his account of the trial of the man who murdered his daughter Dominique.
He was working on a novel before his health took a turn for the worse. He traveled to Germany earlier this month to receive another round of stem cell treatments at the same clinic Farrah Fawcett went to. When he got back to NYC, he was immediately hospitalized and then sent home.
Dominick is survived by his two sons Griffin and Alex.
May Dominick rest in peace. The sads.
