    Does anyone remember when the same thing happened back in the early 90's when the forgotten apartment of Sean Flynn, son of the great Errol and would be war photographer who went missing alongside another U.S. reporter Dana Stone, in Vietnam in 1970?

    His place was also in Paris in the 19th arrondissement, and it looked just like he'd walked out yesterday, there was even half drunk bottles of mineral water on the kitchen table. Couldn't find the article I read back then, but there's a bit about it here with a few photo's.

    William, I just might have put a low bid on the ostrich.. After it was dry cleaned..

    Ned, that's a great link to Sean Flynn. His flat was def from the 1960's!

    Stuka, I'm sure you found some great things, too! ( I don't think it's burglary, this stuff would'nt have ended up at GIZMO's junkyard, where it'd be saved )
