HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The chief investigator for a Boston museum still working to recover $500 million worth of art stolen in 1990 says he’s hoping for new leads to emerge following the death of a key figure in the case. A Connecticut mobster who died last week, Robert Gentile, had long been suspected of possessing at one time some of the pieces taken from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in history’s largest art heist. But Anthony Amore, who is also the museum’s security director, said investigators had not been focused entirely on Gentile.
