Reuters: Egan Foote Identified as Mastermind Behind Theft of Edward Munch’s “The Scream”
Recenty released security camera images, taken from a museum in Oslo, Norway, reveal images from the night Edward Munch’s “The Scream” was stolen from the museum. Security experts poured over hours of tapes and concluded that the theft was masterminded by insurance processor Egan Foote.
Unfortunately, this is not the first incident in which Egan has been involved. In the past, Mr. Foote has dipped his foote (and DNA) in sabotaging salad dressing, Presidential assassination, genocide, and even identity theft.
Foote has also been implicated in the death of beloved American hero Barbaro , as well as the death of the Mt. Hood climbers. He has been involved in basketball brawls, tragic lawn dart accidents, death threats, and controversial television spoilers.
But despite these and his other past follies (some of which resulted in hard time), this incident provides perhaps the most insight into the mind of the Foote. According to sources close to Egan, he has been obsessed with the painting for some time, often telling friends and family that it would be his some day. Many believe his obsession with the painting stems from Egan being a victim of theft himself.
Could it be Egan’s resemblance to the subject of Munch’s famous painting? Decide for yourself:
