CONVICTED. Three former BOSNIAN SERB COMMANDERS; for the 1992 rape, torture and sexual enslavement of Muslim women; by the United Nations war-crimes tribunal; at the Hague. In a landmark decision, the war-crimes court broadened the definition of wartime slavery to include sexual enslavement and deemed sexual slavery and rape to be crimes against humanity.
DIED. WARNER LEROY, 65, New York City restaurateur and Warner Bros. scion whose fantasy-land establishments drew the rich and famous; of lymphoma; in New York. Among his lavishly designed eateries were Maxwell's Plum, Tavern on the Green and the revamped Russian Tea Room.
DIED. EDDIE MATHEWS, 69, Milwaukee Braves' Hall of Fame third baseman and lefty hitter who racked up 512 home runs; of pneumonia; in San Diego. Mathews and fellow Brave Hank Aaron hit 863 home runs combined, the most of any two teammates in history.
DIED. GAIL FISHER, 65, groundbreaking African-American actress-model who won an Emmy for portraying secretary Peggy Fair on the long-running '70s detective series Mannix; of kidney failure; in Los Angeles. Credited as the first black actress to earn a speaking part in a national TV ad (for All detergent), she turned her bit part on Mannix into a major role within one season.
DIED. ANTHONY (TONY JACK) GIACALONE, 82, alleged Detroit Mafia capo who was set to meet with ex-Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa on July 30, 1975, the day Hoffa vanished; in Detroit. Giacalone, who was under a 21-count indictment for racketeering at the time of his death, never spilled the beans about what he may have known about Hoffa's disappearance and presumed death, except to remark, "Maybe he took a little trip."
DIED. T. GEOFFREY BIBBY, 83, British archaeologist who dug up the 4,000-year-old Middle Eastern kingdom of Dilmun, a secret and supposedly mythical island of everlasting life traversed by the epic hero Gilgamesh; near Aarhus, Denmark. Using little more than clay tablets inscribed with the legend of Sumeria, Bibby figured the mysterious city to be on the island of Bahrain, near Saudia Arabia.
DIED. STANLEY KRAMER, 87, producer-director and grudging bearer of the label "message filmmaker" who received nine Oscar nominations but never won; in Los Angeles. Kramer used film to wrestle with such knotty themes as racism (The Defiant Ones), nuclear holocaust (On the Beach) and Nazi war crimes (Judgment at Nuremberg). Toward the end of his career, critics routinely panned his films--even box-office successes like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner--as oversimplified and maudlin.
DIED. WILLIAM H. MASTERS, 85, sex-therapy pioneer who, with research partner and second wife Virginia Johnson, studied the mating habits of hundreds of couples to demystify the once taboo mechanics of sex; in Tucson, Ariz. His scientific odyssey into the well-kept secrets of human sexuality began in 1954, and for the next 40 years Masters and Johnson deconstructed and upended popular theories about sex and alleviated the guilt and fear attached to it.
