Paul Getty's Son Dead, Body Knife Wounds Found LOS ANGELES (UPI) Police revealed today that two small knife wounds were found on the body of George F. Getty II, eldest son of oil billionaire J. Paul Getty, after he died Wednesday at Queen of Angels Hospital where he- was registered under a false name. At first it was reported that the 48-year-old Getty, executive vice president of the Getty Oil Co., had died after a sudden illness, apparently of a cerebral hemorrhage. But Police Lt. E. Hernandez said today that small knife wiounds, one on the chest and another on the left leg, led police to believe that he died under "suspicious circumstances.' "We don't know how they got there, only that there are wounds on the body," Hernandez said. A team of detectives was piecing together several conflicting stories and were interviewing Mrs. Getty and other family members at their Bel Air home. Police gave the following sequence of reports: Getty was taken to Queen of the Angels Hospital at 2:40 a.m. Wednesday by Dr. Kendrick H EE JEWELERS Watch Crystals Replaced in 30 Minutes, Official Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Time Inspector 314 E. MAIN ST. Located Elsa Marie Shop Smith, who registered Getty as "George S. Davis" of North Hollywood. Hospital officials said the man later identified as Getty was suffering from a shallow chest wound, possibly inflicted by a knife, and another wound on his left leg. Getty died more than 12 hours later, at 3:40 p.m., at which time the coroner's office notified police. Members of the Getty family told police that Getty had been injured accidentally during a barbecue at their home Tuesday night, but the wound at first was thought to be slight. Later they took him to the hospital. The coroner's office said the county handled the case because there was "no professional , medical opinion on the death." Chief Medical Examiner Thomas Noguchi was expected to conduct an autopsy later today. Getty began a career independent of his father's after serving in the Army during World War II. In 1947, he formed his own exploration company and the next year brought in the South Crane Oil Field in West Texas. In 1949, he joined the Pacific Western Oil Corp. to head the Saudi Arabian division at Jedda and in 1955 was named the firm's executive vice president. He then resigned to join the old Tidewater Oil Co. as a director and eastern division general manager. He became Tidewater's president in 1958. In 1967, Tidewater merged with his father's Getty Oil Co. He had served as executive vice president and chief operating officer, of Getty since that time. uatcs is the second largest in the school's history.
