Because, if it’s on the Internet it’s gotta be true, right?
The two men who contend burglars broke into their former Pebble Beach home in 2009 and stole as much as $80 million worth of art launched a website this week in hopes it will help lead to the arrest of the perpetrators and recovery of the works.
The web address is www.pebblebeachartheist.com (2015 update, site dark, 404).
After the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office looked into the case, an investigator accused the two men — who claimed an estimated $27 million to $80 million in art had been stolen — of insurance fraud, and called the alleged heist a “scam” and part of a “criminal enterprise.”
The new website reiterates what Amadio and Kennaugh have told the press before: that officials never investigated the alleged heist and didn’t interview them or other potential witnesses.
