Police and FBI agents are scouring South Florida... and getting plenty of tips on Cunanan's possible whereabouts.... but concede he could have already slipped out of the state. The Versace murder is the fifth linked to Cunanan... two former lovers, a Chicago millionaire and a New Jersey cemetery caretaker have also been targets on his alleged cross-country killing spree. As one of the fbi's 10-most wanted fugitives.... Andrew Cunanan's picture-- has been posted on the internet for awhile. Investigators have now raised the bounty by adding a 10-thousand dollar reward leading to his capture. While he is considered armed and dangerous, Police think Cunanan plans his executions carefully.... and could have been laying in wait-- for Versace for weeks.
