J. Paul Getty III Dies at Age 54

J. Paul Getty III—whose kidnapping when he was 16 in Italy made headlines in the 1970s, died on February 5, it was reported Tuesday. A grandson of oil baron J. Paul Getty, Sr., Getty's captors had cut off his ear when his family initially refused to pay a $17 million ransom. Getty, 54, had been incapacitated since 1981 by a narcotics-induced stroke.
