Mystery of the missing music producer


Recommended Posts

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 man’s glasses, “found halfway down the hill behind his house, where it is believed that they fell as he ran,†the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Friends and relatives say the most bizarre element in the case is Irwin's recent involvement in a “Nigerian†Internet scam. The swindle involves e-mailed appeals for advance money to help move large sums out of Nigeria. Victims are told they’ll get a big chunk of the fortune in exchange for their help.
