Andrew was brilliant in school and aced many IQ tests but was also known as a pathological liar who enjoyed telling stories and changing his appearance, skills he would later use. By 15, he was disguising himself to visit gay bars and clubs where he would seduce rich older men. After high school in 1987, Andrew headed to UC San Diego to study American History.
He moved to San Francisco after leaving college. Andrew was soon selling and heavily taking drugs like cocaine, opioids, and alcohol. Jeffrey Trail, and David Madson, became his lovers, but both relationships ended quickly, and they would be his first two kills.
After discovering Trail and Madson were together behind Andrew’s back, all three went to Trail’s apartment for mediation, where Andrew burst Trail’s head with a hammer. While on the run with Madson, Andrew pulled while driving and shot him.
Andrew went on to kill Lee Miglin in Chicago and then William Reese in New Jersey for other reasons, including enjoying the killing spree. His last murder was of famous designer Gianni Versace at his home in Miami Beach.
Andrew killed himself on a houseboat in July 1997.
