487) John Paul Getty

John Paul Getty III (1956 – 2011), also known as Paul Getty. Eldest of the four children of John Paul Getty Jr. and Abigail (née Harris), and the grandson of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty. His son is actor Balthazar Getty. He's famous for having been kidnapped in 1973, in Rome.

- "In November 1973, a daily newspaper received an envelope containing a lock of red hair, a human ear, and a threat from the kidnappers to mutilate Paul further unless they were paid $3.2 million (equivalent to $17.6 million in 2017)."

- "John Paul Getty III was born on November 4 1956, the firstborn son of the American John Paul Getty II, and struck his normally misanthropic grandfather, John Paul Getty I, as "a bright, red-haired little rascal… most cheerful and cute". "…/8309…/John-Paul-Getty-III.html
