A couple weeks back, bond manager, art collector, and porn buff Jeffrey Gundlach had $10 million worth of goods taken him from his home. The loot definitely included pieces by artists Guy Rose ("The Cathedral Tours") and Joseph Cornell ("Medici Boy") and possibly included works by C. Everette Smythe ("A Trip Down Mammary Lane"), Jules Jordan ("The Art of Female Ejaculation"), and Brandon Iron ("Swallow My Pride 2"). Understandably beside himself, Gundlach offered $200,000 for the return of his stuff and $1,000 for any information about the thieves who likely targeted his home knowing the vast array of riches to be found inside. Unfortunately, it appears that no leads have popped up and Gundlach has been forced to turn to Plan B:
Jeffrey Gundlach will hold a news conference at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern today (Monday Sep 24) regarding the burglary earlier this month and the reward for the recovery for the recovery of undamaged artwork taken in the burglary.
The conference will be held at the RR Donnelly conference room in the Wells Fargo building in downtown Los Angeles:
333 S. Grand Avenue (parking is off Hope Street)
Suite 4350 (43rd Floor)
Los Angeles, CA 90071
Those attending in-person, please RSVP with your name and organization, so that we may notify building security.

For those closely watching this case, it should be noted that Gundlach has yet to confirm or deny whether or not this is all some kind of elaborate role-playing stunt* that will culminate in a showdown with the "thieves," dressed in elaborate but skimpy costumes designed to tear off easily, somewhere out in the desert a week from now or perhaps halfway through today's presser (which is why he wanted an audience).
