Gardner Heist: Solved

Posted by Amanda Gustin on May 20, 2011 in potpourri |

Want some fun for a Friday afternoon?

Stephen Colbert confessed to the 1990 heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum a few days ago.

Yes, you read that right. Just watch the clip.

    Ha that’s great… “I’m kinda sick of it..you can come pick it up now”
    …did you ever read the Gardner Heist book? It’s really interesting. Don’t know if I really believe what the solution is in the book but it’s interesting.

  • Yeah, I read it maybe two years ago? I had heard though that it’s very inaccurate in parts – they don’t sell it in the gift shop at the museum itself, for example. (Though I bet they have other reasons for not selling it!)

    I don’t know if I buy his solution either, but it was certainly a really interesting read!
