Larry Hillblom, the H of DHL, regularly took “sex safari” trips to Asia to prey on underage girls. When he died in a plane crash, 4 of the illegitimate children he fathered were able to claim $50 million each from his estate.

Larry Hillblom

Larry Lee Hillblom (May 12, 1943 – May 21, 1995) was a sexual abuser of minors, American businessman, and a co-founder of the shipping company DHL Worldwide Express. After his death, his estate paid $360m to four impoverished children that he had fathered as a result of ‘sex safari’ trips in South-East Asian countries, where he would reportedly procure prepubescent girls and teenaged virgins for sex.

    From the Wikipedia article in the original post –

    > But because Hillblom’s body was not recovered in the crash, no DNA test could be performed to prove paternity. Mysteriously, his house in Saipan was discovered to have been wiped clean of any traces of his DNA. The sinks had been scrubbed with muriatic acid, and toothbrushes, combs, hairbrushes and clothes were found buried in the backyard, making them useless for DNA testing…

    >Hillblom’s mother, brother, and half-brother initially refused to submit their DNA, which could also have been used to determine paternity of the children. David Lujan and co-counsel Barry Israel then dispatched a team of investigators to compare the DNA of all the children suing for claim on Hillblom’s estate. Lujan and Israel surmised that since the girls were located in different countries, if the children shared certain DNA markers, the only logical conclusion would be that they would almost certainly have the same father. In the end, a judge ordered Hillblom’s brother and mother to submit to genetic testing. The tests confirmed that four of the eight claimants were Hillblom’s children.

    After reading his wiki, I’m convinced this guy faked his death.

    Huh. I just quit DHL. They did not mention this in orientation.

    TIL DHL is an initialism for the founders’ names.

    I watched a whole documentary on this guy. There was much more than 4 illegitimate children, there was just 4 that refused to take their deal to get a much smaller amount. 4 fought for a bigger share. This guy ~~slept with~~ raped dozens and dozens of children is south east Asia.

    Wiki says he disappeared. Not suspicious at all.

    My only question is did he know of his… legacy before he died or did he die thinking he was getting away with it?

    Sex tourism with minors in Asia is a rampant issue and I’m surprised their government isn’t doing more to stop it. During a family vacation to the Philippines and Thailand when I was a kid (2004), I vividly remember seeing/hearing many older foreigners trying to solicit services with children out in the open. Many locals didn’t care or actively promoted it as well. One of them even asked my father if he wanted to find another child for “entertainment” when he was taking me around sightseeing in Cebu as well. It’s absolutely disgusting.

    Huh. I had been told the ‘H’ stood for ‘Hide it’. As in ‘Drop it, Hide it, Lose it’.

    Something tells me this guy planned his death. Mysteriously cleaning his ENTIRE HOUSE with hydrochloric acid, and burying, yes burying his toothbrush and hair brush. 0 DNA at his home. Who does that unless they know they are going to disappear?

    Unless someone, you know, did it for him, still weird.

    Oh, I had no idea that DHL was a US company that got bought by the German Mail. I thought it had always been part of them.
