How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Experts Optimistic That $500M in Stolen Art Will Be Recovered Despite Passing of Nearly 25 Years

Now that the FBI says it knows the identity of the suspects behind the heist of $500 million of art from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the question is: Will the feds recover rare works after nearly 25 years?

Art experts told the Washington Post that the chances are surprisingly good.

Christopher Marinello, an attorney for The Art Loss Register, a database of stolen artwork, said the stolen works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet likely will surface.

“A quarter of a century is not that unusual for stolen paintings to be returned,” the attorney, Christopher Marinello, told the Washington Post. “Eventually they will resurface. Somebody will rat somebody else out. It’s really only a matter of time.”

The FBI announced Monday that it has identified the two men who posed as cops and took off with 13 works of art.
