Circumstances of Disappearance
Lee Young was last seen leaving a restaurant in Scottsdale, AZ around 12:30 on May 4, 1990. Lee or someone else used his car phone after 14.00 that afternoon. His plum-colored Lincoln Town Car was located burning in the desert 100 miles south of Phoenix, AZ on May 5.
He always carried large amounts of cash to buy jewelry, which he sold in his spare time. When police opened the trunk to Lee’s burned-out car, they found jewelry worth thousands of dollars. The briefcase that carried his files was missing from the trunk.
Lee was a bank-executive in Scottsdale, and was investigating a possible fraud case against his bank. Lee had recently contacted Federal drug agents because he suspected that his bank was being used by a money-laundering ring.
Foul play is suspected.
