Despite a $5 million no questions asked reward, a 20-year-old art heist in Boston is still unsolved. Its the largest theft of its kind in history because the paintings are valued at half-a-billion dollars. Leaders of the Isabela Stewart Gardner museum say they're renewing efforts to recover the works. They want new DNA analysis and are publicizing the reward. In 1990, two thieves walked into the museum and took more than a dozen paintings, including masterworks by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas and Manet which have never surfaced.
