The Maurizio Gucci Murder and The Kane Brothers...

When former head of the Gucci fashion empire, Maurizio Gucci was gunned down  on a spring morning in 1997, suspicions initially fell on his volatile and litigious family whom he'd out manoeuvred to get control of the company. However his bitter and dramatic ex-wife Patrizia was also a suspect. She and her personal psychic were known to delve into the black arts and it was no secret she wanted Maurizio dead. 

The Three Kane brothers, Les, Brian, and Ray were all career criminals. They specialised in extortion and armed robbery on the grimy streets of Melbourne in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. One day the ratbag brothers took it too far when they tried to take on Great Bookie Robber Ray 'Chuck” Bennett.
