    Somehow wikipedia already has an update, someone was very diligent in updating this article:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Eagle

    If whoever edited this article can be believed, Ron was carrying the $6M eagle around in a backpack as he left a concert, with no security or bodyguards. Other web sites seem to confirm that a police report was filed. This certainly raises a lot of questions. I hope he had insurance...if The Golden Eagle ever actually existed (and wasn't just the bronze one awarded in the previous chapter). If this really did happen, how and why would someone carry such a valuable item around so casually? I know I am extremely cautious on the rare occasion that I am carrying instruments or cash valued in the thousands, I think I would invest in some security if I ever needed to carry something in the millions, and only do so when absolutely necessary. Think of armored cars carrying sometimes much less money, and the lengths they go to, to prevent robberies. Highly suspicious, either on account or something more sinister...

    Had a 5 million dollar piece of art in a backpack and said for insurance it is worth 9 million?
    Come on man! Guess this ends the hunt.

    I am glad Ron is OK. That eagle will be hard to sell on the black market unless they strip it and melt it. Why in the world would you not secure it properly? He is smarter than that.

    Wow, that's just insane. Hope he has insurance on it. Sounds like Ron is okay though, which is good.

    Since I think I submitted the winning C6 solution a few days ago, I sure hope they don't use this as a reason to not at least check all existing submissions!

    Anonymous updated Wikipedia an hour ago that it was stolen. Very fishy.

    Wait just a minute. Every story is different. One says he was on his way home from a church concert and it was in a backpack.
    Another it was stolen from his home.
    And yet another it was taken as he transported it with a security agent from his car to a secure vault.
    What is really going on here?

    Surely one wouldn't transport a 5 million item in a backpack without guard?
