I received the following email and told her I'd post here:

Hello!

I am helping my church (St. Saviour's Episcopal Church in Bar Harbor, Maine) search for a Tiffany Easter lily window that was stolen in June of 1988.

My hope is that whoever owns the window has had it restored. The window was made in 1894.

If you have ever seen this window, please let us know.

The window is listed on the FBI's Stolen Art database. I will attach a couple of articles about the missing window.

Thank you for your help,

Katherine Whitney

Well, how was it removed?? Was the building actually broken into, or did someone leave the doors unlocked??

Did the police at the time have any clues, etc??

I don't know all the details but the original police report (obtained from Katherine) can be seen here:

I have to say that the FBI website is pretty pathetic.
