A reporter for the New York Times went to Kristyn Trudgeon’s apartment in New York City to find out more about the strange case of the missing painting that is half-owned by a convicted art thief and con man. When they got there, they learned that Ms. Trudgeon may be filing another suit against the man who misplaced the painting but she’s also still working with her partner, Tom Doyle:
But on Thursday, there was word that the owners still planned to sue Mr. Haggerty — that word came from no other than Mr. Doyle, who answered the door to Ms. Trudgeon’s 18th-floor apartment on the Upper West Side.
“We wanted to triangulate his phone,” Mr. Doyle said of Mr. Haggerty. “The only way you can triangulate his phone is if you get a court order, because he can’t remember where he was for an hour and a half.”
Mr. Doyle would not comment about his criminal record and portrayed himself as a victim. “I’m out a lot of money,” he said as Ms. Trudgeon appeared in the apartment behind him, talking on the phone. “I’ve really got a lot of people mad at me.”
