Esau Posted August 26, 2005 Report Share Posted August 26, 2005 LOS ANGELES - The mysterious disappearance of Grammy-nominated music producer Chris Julian has all the elements of one of the Hollywood thrillers that he scored: a frantic, pre-dawn phone call; an Internet scam; and police searches in Topanga Canyon. According to Southern California media accounts, Julian, 48, whose real name is Christian Julian Irwin, vanished Sunday after calling a friend via cell phone to say he was being chased down a ravine near his home by pursuers who were out to kill him. The call was made at 3:45 a.m. and no one has heard from Irwin since. One of the few clues that police have is a pair of the missing manâ€™s glasses, â€œfound halfway down the hill behind his house, where it is believed that they fell as he ran,â€ the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.Friends and relatives say the most bizarre element in the case is Irwin's recent involvement in a â€œNigerianâ€ Internet scam. The swindle involves e-mailed appeals for advance money to help move large sums out of Nigeria. Victims are told theyâ€™ll get a big chunk of the fortune in exchange for their help. Full story....
