Unraveling one of the biggest art heists in U.S. history
Ron Roseman was almost finished liquidating his late aunt's estate last summer when the phone rang.
It was the FBI.
An agent wanted to know where his aunt, Rita Alter, got a painting that hung behind her bedroom door. Roseman had seen the abstract expressionist painting that the agent was inquiring about but had no idea where his aunt got it.
“Why?,” Roseman asked.
Because it was stolen from a museum 32 years ago and is valued at $160-million, the FBI told him.
That's where this mystery begins into one of the biggest unsolved art thefts in U.S. history.
