The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Robbery

The Details

On March 18, 1990, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was robbed of what is estimated to be over $500,000,000 in priceless works of art.  The crime was committed by two men impersonating Boston police officers.  The 81-minute crime spree allowed the   men to abscond with 13 works of art from the likes of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Degas.  The crime is - to date - the largest private property theft in history.

The mystery to be solved is "Where did the paintings go?"
