Missing music producer found alive

Grammy-nominated Chris Julian discovered naked, washing clothes in creek

MSNBC News Services

Updated: 3:07 a.m. ET Aug. 27, 2005

LOS ANGELES - The nearly weeklong search for a Grammy-nominated producer ended Friday after a resident spotted the man sitting naked in a backyard creek, washing his jeans.

The Topanga Canyon resident found a distraught Christian Julian Irwin saying he feared he was being pursued by Nigerians who had contacted him in an Internet scam, sheriff’s Capt. Ray Peavy said.

Authorities began looking for Irwin on Sunday after he made a panicked phone call to a friend, saying he was being pursued by people with dogs. He told his friend he was running through water and had lost his glasses and shoes in a creek.

/snip

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.

/snip

Irwin is “an independent record producer and engineer whose work has brought three Grammy Nominations, over 50 Gold and Platinum albums and an Emmy Award.” He has worked with David Bowie, Jimmy Webb, Vanessa Williams, David Crosby, Chaka Khan, Don Was, Art Garfunkel, Carly Simon, Queen Latifa, Isaac Hayes and Lisa Stansfield.

Well, OK, but stay away from the real pretty young widow that I'm going to help get the $8 million. She only has eyes for me - she said so in her e-mail.

Your relative should report immediately to the ONDCP because your relative appears to be the only case that actually conforms to their "reefer madness" propaganda. You could have a scientific breakthrough!

Addictive pot would be a second whole scientific breakthrough. You could be up for a Nobel Prize!

Go, quickly!

By the way, nice selective quoting. Do you work for CNN?

Your relative needs to find a dealer he can trust. Unless your relative's pot was laced with something (or he's smoking way more than most people do), there's no way in hell that pot will induce paranoia.

You have a major disagreement with several doctors on the psychiatric floor at Shawnee-Mission Medical Center in Overland Park. The following is from a medical website:

Medications or substances causing Paranoia: The following drugs, medications, substances or toxins are some of the possible causes of Paranoia as a symptom. This list is incomplete and various other drugs or substances may cause your symptoms. Always advise your doctor of any medications or treatments you are using, including prescription, over-the-counter, supplements, herbal or alternative treatments.

Cannabis
Marijuana

Ya gotta watch out for the Chinese scammers as well> I got two letters last week, identical in everything but the names of the deceased Iraqi generals who supposedly left their ill-gotten gains in a Hong Kong bank. (Same bank too)

Well, everyone seems convinced it's drugs but just to put an alternative viewpoint out there, it could be schizophrenia. Schizophrenia usually strikes otherwise healthy people, usually relatively young people, without warning and it's very sad when it happens. I'd hate to be making fun of a man who's going through that.

Oddly, it was my first thought. For some unfathomable reason I didn't even think of drugs until I started reading the thread.

Do you suppose he somehow managed to con the Nigerian scammers to actually deposit the money and then didn't hold up his end of the deal?

Just the ones the British brought in. The rest of them are old trucks.

It usually hits at a much earlier age--- 15-25 y/o. He should have shown episodes of schezophrenia by the age of 48, unless drug or trauma induced.
