On Monday, WBUR and the Boston Globe launched the podcast Last Seen, which dives into a true crime story of cops and robbers, dogged investigators and lovable rogues, old and new Boston, and an irresistible mystery.

Twenty-eight-and-a-half years ago, Boston became home to the largest unsolved art heist in history. On March 18, 1990, two thieves, disguised as Boston cops, entered the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, tied up the two guards, and stole 13 artworks now valued at half a billion dollars. Not one of those works has been recovered.

To offer a tip, call (617) 929-7999.
