An alleged mobster who police believe may be able to solve the largest art heist in U.S. history is expected in court in Connecticut on Tuesday where he is due to be sentenced for illegally selling guns to a convicted murderer. Robert Gentile admitted last year to illegally selling a loaded firearm to a convicted killer, the result of what his lawyer calls an FBI sting operation aimed at pressuring him into providing details on paintings stolen from a Boston’s art museum in 1990. Gentile, who is 81 years old, has repeatedly denied knowing the whereabouts of any of the art, valued at an estimated $500 million, taken in one of the longest unsolved high-profile crimes in Boston. He is due to appear in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Connecticut.
