Crime story author Dominick Dunne, 83, dies in NYC

NEW YORK — Author Dominick Dunne, who told stories of shocking crimes among the rich and famous through his magazine articles and best-selling books including "Another City, Not My Own," about O.J. Simpson's murder trial, died Wednesday in his home at age 83.

Not that he was a particular favorite of mine, but he was a prominent non-fiction writer in the crime genre.
