Picasso In Flames: Stolen Masterpieces Feared Destroyed

Romanian forensic specialists say they have found the burned remains of what they believe to be seven paintings stolen from a Dutch art gallery last year. The paintings include works by Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, and Henri Matisse. Olga Dogaru, the mother of one of the suspected thieves, said she burned the paintings in her oven in an attempt to destroy the evidence of the crime.
