Jacob Anthonisen, Lindsay Lohan Pal, Implicated in Murder Investigation
Jacob Anthonisen, an art dealer and friend of Lindsay Lohan and other stars, is currently being sought in a murder investigation, according to a new report.
The 37-year-old, who runs with the likes of Emile Hirsch, Mickey Avalon, Taryn Manning and Lady Victoria Hervey, has been named a person of interest.
On June 9, a decomposing body was found in the back of a Cadillac Escalade registered to Jacob Anthonisen in a parking lot in West Hollywood, Calif.
The remains were identified on Thursday as Steven John Simmons – Jacob’s stepbrother – and the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest.
“He has been involved with some very dangerous people in the past, and we are worried that they have something to do with this,” a close pal said.
Anthonisen, who owns The Peanut Gallery in Los Angeles, has been missing since May 31 and several of his friends and relatives are highly concerned.
“At this point, everyone is just hoping he is alive and well,” the pal said.
“But it’s no secret that he served time in prison for drugs, so it’s something to consider here. The circumstances lead us to believe drugs played a role.”
Though he has been running in the most exclusive Hollywood circles for more than a decade, Anthonisen served two years in prison from 2003-2005.
He was convinced on drug-related felony charges in Arizona.
The last photo uploaded on Anthonisen’s Instagram account before he went missing was a photo of him with Lohan on May 26 in his art gallery.
Lohan has made no public mention or statement regarding her missing friend, nor have any of his other celebrity pals, at least yet. Stay tuned …
