    I really enjoyed that show, too. I also liked his writing. I just saw an episode recently and thought he looked very ill.

    Oh I enjoyed so much of his work over the years. I liked his pieces in Vanity Fair. Now he's with his daughter that was so brutally murdered years ago.
    May he rest in peace, he did a lot of good on earth.
    He'll be missed. :(

    Words can’t express the loss of this outstanding man who lived his life to the fullest. A rare honorable man, indeed. He will be missed. Peace be with you Mr. Dunne. My sincere condolences go out to his friends and family.

    Very sad to hear this news today.

    Dominick Dunn was a true pioneer for crime victim rights and seeking justice.

    Through his books, and his television series, he will always be remembered. RIP Dominick

    The world of true crime fighters lost a comrade, and in many aspects, a hero, too, today.
    I loved the wit and intelligence of Dominick Dunne. Few journalists of our generation were able to cross over from popular society reporting to true crime reporting; his metamorphasis coming after the murder of his beautiful daughter and namesake, Dominique.

    Dear one, party in your own special style with your lovely Dominique, and with Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, whom you championed tirelessly. I tend to think heaven is a much more active place right now with you greeting and meeting so many whose causes you reported and obviously genuinely cared about.

    I know you were in pain and needed to leave the suffering behind, having fought the good fight against cancer for some time, but the world has lost a spokesman for truth and a champion of justice.

    You were a prince of your era and one of a kind. You turned personal loss and tragedy into intrepid professional true crime reporting. I will miss you and your "Power, Privilege and Justice."

    Maria

    In addition, I believe Mr. Dunne was instrumental in Mark Fuhrman’s success at getting Michael Skakel brought to justice for the murder of Martha Moxley.

    Yes, he absolutely was. I feel like crying. All of the true crime journalists on TV are being replaced with cheap " reality" nonsense. The reality is in the true crime stories.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Dunns passing, i enjoyed all his work so much and he worked so hard for the underdog and dug as deep as ever until he got to the truth. He will be missed but at peace with his daughter.

    So sad about Dominick Dunne. I never loyally followed him or his program,I just remember how truly furious he was when someone interviewed him outside the court house immediately after the OJ Simpson verdict.He was just livid!He did not mince any of his words.I liked that!
