Glasgow disappearance in news

Posted By on Wed, Feb 11, 2009 at 8:41 AM


The long-awaited article by Conde Nast's Portfolio magazine on John Glasgow, the vanished CFO of the CDI contractors firm, is out. Thanks to Norma Bates for the tip.

The article emphasizes the long-running suspicion that Glasgow's disappearance was somehow related to accounting differences with the Dillard Department stores family, then half-owners and now sole owner of CDI.

The article's headline describes Glasgow as a "runaway CFO" and raises the question of whether he was a man who "knew too much."

There are new details about the inner workings of the relationship between the Dillards and officials of CDI. The story does not flatter the Dillards, to put it mildly.

In the end, though, the article leaves Glasgow's disappearance a mystery and doesn't attempt to answer the question of whether he might still be alive.
