The art theft is a one-off investigation.
| Day 4: Homicide|
Day 59: Drug sales
At night, a little-known painting by the Dutch master De Vroom, recently shown for the first time, disappeared from the museum. One of the museum's windows was broken, and there's a brick lying on the floor inside.
Clues and witnesses
Rafael Campos, museum guard: "I walk the museum every hour. The alarm is off – City Hall won't allocate the money to fix it. I didn't hear the glass breaking – it's a big museum. When I went down this way again, it was already early morning. The window was broken, and the canvas was cut from the frame. There was no trace of anyone around, just a brick lying on the floor. "
Museum parking lot camera
The parking lot was empty all night. In the morning a cyclist went past with a tube on his shoulder. The guy slowly rolled into the parking lot, then left the bike for a couple of minutes and went out of sight. Then he came back, got on the bike and left.
Mr. Van der Hoff
Bram Van der Hoff, art school student: "I suffer from insomnia and often go cycling around the city late at night. I took a tube and some other equipment, so I wouldn't have to go back home before my morning classes at the art school. I stopped at the museum to pee. I admit it, I like to mark the corner of the building. – I imagine one day my work will be hanging inside."
Jeremiah Stevens, teacher at the art school: "In his lectures on the works of the Dutch masters, Bram van der Hoff always sharply criticized the works of de Vroom. He dismissed the legendary artist as 'overpriced mediocrity' and was very amused when an unknown de Vroom painting was discovered in the city dump. He said it was already in its proper place. He was less amused when he learned that the de Vroom painting would be hung in the museum. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Bram who broke into the museum and stole the painting – to burn it, or cut it into tiny pieces. "
The glass is almost completely broken out. A grown man could easily climb through the window and not cut himself. Most of the shards are lying on the pavement outside the museum.
Rafael Campos: museum security guard who thought he'd earn some money for his old age from the new painting that had everyone talking.
- Residential Area: Rafael Campos lives alone in a small apartment.
- Storage Buildings: A storage space has been rented in the name of Rafael Campos. This might be where he's keeping the stolen painting.
