Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Lee Young left a restaurant at 4700 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, AZ on May 4, 1990 at 13.30 hours, and was never seen again. However, Lee or someone else used his car phone later that afternoon. Evidence of foul play exists as Young's vehicle was found burned in Pinal County near the City of Oracle on 05/05/1990. When police opened the trunk to Lee’s burned-out car, they found jewelry worth thousands of dollars. His briefcase was missing.
Young was a bank-executive whose job was to investigate a possible fraud case against his bank in Scottsdale. He always carried large amounts of cash to buy jewelry, which he sold in his spare time. Lee had recently contacted Federal drug agents because he suspected that his bank was being used by a money-laundering ring. Lee had focused his investigation on a major drug cartel in Columbia. The case was still ongoing at the time of his disappearance.
