Art theft experts say now that authorities believe they know who stole $500 million worth of art from a U.S. museum, the chances of getting the paintings back are good.
The FBI won't disclose the identities of whom it thinks posed as police officers and stole 13 pieces from a Boston museum in 1990. The works included paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet.
Christopher Marinello is a lawyer who recently recovered a Matisse painting stolen from a museum in Stockholm in 1987. He says 23 years is not an unusually long period of time when it comes to recovering stolen art.
Marinello says he believes someone will expose someone else to claim the $5 million reward being offered by the museum.
