James Scurlock recounts the life of Larry Hillblom, co-founder of DHL shipping company, who disappeared in 1995 off the coast of Anatahan in the Western Pacific. Mr. Hillblom, raised on a peach farm near Fresno, California, co-founded DHL in 1969, just months after graduating from the University of California Berkeley’s School of Law. Twelve years later, Mr. Hillblom moved to the Mariana Islands, a tax haven and U.S. territory in the Western Pacific. There he became a Supreme Court justice who re-drafted the island’s real-estate laws and tax codes. Larry Hillblom’s estate, valued at nearly a billion dollars, has been disputed by numerous parties since his disappearance. James Scurlock responded to questions from members of the audience at BookPeople in Austin, Texas. close
