The 25-year mystery surrounding the bold heist at the Stewart Gardner Museum may be getting closer to being solved after the FBI began investigating a “handful of tips,” The New York Daily News reports.
The tips come just days after the FBI released jumpy surveillance video of the museum 24 hours before the robbery of 13 gems, including three Rembrandts and works by Manet and Degas.
One tip included the identity of a man seen leaving the museum the night before it was robbed.
The artwork is valued at $500 million.
Attorney George Burke said one of his clients identified the mystery man an antique dealer.
