Wouldn’t it be amazing if the paintings (Rembrandt’s “Storm on the Sea of Galilee,” and Vermeer’s “The Concert,”) reappeared in their frames which have remained empty in the Gardner Museum for the past 23 years?
FBI says it has identified the thieves in Gardner Museum heist; paintings’ location still unknown - Boston.com
In a stunning twist in a case that had frustrated investigators for decades, federal law enforcement officials said today that they had identified the people who stole $500 million worth of masterworks in a daring heist from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990.
The officials also said they had determined where the artworks had traveled in the years after the robbery, which is considered the greatest art theft in history. But the officials said they did not know where they were now and were appealing to the public for their help in finding them….
Law enforcement officials have been puzzled for years by the heist. The robbers entered the museum and tied up two night watchmen in the early morning hours of March 18, 1990. After years of investigative dead ends, DesLauriers said, the probe “accelerated” in 2010 and “crucial pieces of evidence” were developed identifying the robbers and their associates.
