Rounding the final corridor of the morning, Professor Lindhaus felt sick to his stomach as his jaw dropped in shock.
“Oh, No!” he exclaimed, staring at the bare wall in front of him. “The most valuable piece of art in this museum… it’s gone!”
At the end of the corridor there were only shadows on the wall where the “Centurion Cornelius” painting by the famous Roman painter, Alexander Beinzo, had been.
Questions had begun racing through his mind as he stood there in disbelief. “Who possibly could have been so ruthless to steal a part of history?” “How in God’s earth did someone gain entrance without the alarms going off?”
Thinking quickly, Professor slowly stepped back and did not touch a thing. Greg Hoppel was a personal friend of Lindhaus’ who headed the Boston CSI. He had taught him how not to contaminate a crime scene.
The Professor quickly reached for his cell phone on his belt in order to call the police department.
“I wouldn’t do that if I was you!” shouted a raspy voice from somewhere behind him. “Put the phone down slowly” he demanded, “don’t turn around and you better not try anything stupid.”
Suddenly a sharp pain surged through the back of his head as Professor Lindhaus felt himself suspended in air as he fell downward. When his shoulder made contact with the hardwood floor, the room began to spin as he passed into unconsciousness.
