Is The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist Close To Being Solved?
Just a few weeks ago it seemed we were on the brink of discovering the mystery behind the 22-year-old brazen Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist. Earlier this month investigators were digging in the yard and taking items out of a home owned by known mobster Robert Gentile. Gentile is in prison awaiting federal gun and drug charges, which his lawyers say are really a ruse to pressure Gentile to tell what he knows of the heist of 13 pieces worth as much as $500 million. If it is related to the heist, chances are award-winning journalist Tom Mashberg knows something about it.
