The duct tape and handcuffs that the robbers used in 1990, which the FBI had collected on the day they took over the case, has gone missing. I am no expert in criminology, but it seems as another sign of incompetence for such a competent agency. Already a retired FBI agent said that the case was bungled because of infighting among department, each wanting to be the one to solve the high-profile case. When I had given a talk about The Museum Heist at the Harvard Coop, one person in the audience had worked as a security guard at the Gardner but left two months before the heist. When I asked him if he was interviewed by the FBI, to my amazement he said, “Never.” How could that be? It seems such a shame that this case has continued on with no resolution in sight for now 27 years.
