FBI: Gardner Heist Thieves Are Dead

The FBI’s lead agent in Boston said Friday that the two men who stole artworks valued at $500 million from Boston’s Gardner Museum in 1990 are dead. The case, including 13 painting by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and others, remains unsolved. On Thursday, authorities released surveillance video from the night before the heist that showed a guard opening the door for a man. Twenty-four hours later, the same guard opened the door to two men dressed as police officers who were in fact thieves, according to the FBI.
