More than 28 years after 13 works of art including masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Manet were stolen from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the early morning hours of March 18, 1990, the largest art theft in world history remains unsolved. The FBI has pulled out all of its investigative tools on the case, following up on a myriad of leads, offering deals to just about anyone who might have credible information, and putting several suspects in prison for other crimes in hopes of pressuring them into cooperating.The lack of a significant breakthrough is even more surprising given the remarkable incentive that federal authorities and the trustees of the museum have long offered to anyone who … [Read more...] about How Boston Can Still Solve the Isabella Stewart Gardner Case — Before It’s Too Late
