Renowned Boston reporter Bob Ward reveals a new lead during Bruce Presents – The Caper That Stunned the Art World: The Gardner Museum Heist, 30 Years Later.

In the black of night, two men in police uniforms arrived at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. 81 minutes pass, and they exit with 13 works of art, never to be seen again. Over 30 years later, these works (including paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Manet) are still missing – their empty frames still hanging as a reminder of the irreplaceable loss.

This heist is considered the biggest unsolved art theft in modern history, with the stolen artwork valued at over $500 million dollars, but a new clue might just be the key to cracking the case.
