    This is so shocking and tragic.

    This is a newer story, with a little more info. Apparently, they interviewed Kevin Peters, the sculptor of the Golden Eagle.

    Reminds me this famous Mickey Roarke cameo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLAbh_LceNw

    Holy crap! Thank god Ron is ok... he must be crushed though. I check in from time to time just to see how the progress is going and almost fell off my chair. I hope for Ron and all the questors that everything finds a way to work out! Too much has been invested by too many people for this ship to sink!

    I'm glad Ron's OK but it sounds like he's only got himself to blame.

    According to the reports he put the eagle in his backpack at the end of the art show and went to a church.

    While he was there he was happy to tell anyone who'd listen what he had with him.

    Smells a bit fishy if you ask me.

    The whole thing is like a scene out of a Chip/Maxie story...

    "I calmed down eventually because I remembered the falcon and figured, what the hell, let him
    have his fortune and his redhead. I have the falcon. Then it was stolen. Now I have nothing."

    Am happy Ron's safe. The "dedicated security guy" if he was there certainly didn't do a very good job.

    Default "Iím really not interested in the insurance money"

    Insurance claim enhanced:

    Delta’s missing $7 million eagle statue a tale of theft, suspicion and intrigue | Vancouver Sun


    No one was supposed to know about the decoy. Now, the secret is out.

    On Thursday, Ron Shore confirmed he was carrying with him a second, less-expensive eagle statue the night his $7-million golden eagle statue was stolen from him during a violent robbery in Ladner.

    Unlike the golden eagle, the silver eagle statue didnít have a prized emerald or hundreds of diamonds, police confirmed. Yet it too was stolen by thieves, said Shore.

    ... " ... And Iím really not interested in the insurance money, because it doesnít cover what Iíve put into it.Ē
