A Boston mobster-turned-pastor recently told authorities that paintings stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990 are buried under a concrete floor in Florida. Alonso Esposito (formerly Robert “Bobby” Luisi Jr.), who is currently enrolled in the Witness Protection Program, claimed that he received the tip-off from a former associate, the late Robert “Unc” Guarente, years ago. The Gardner heist, which involved the robbery of $500 million worth of art, remains unsolved.
