I’m reading about the theft of the Irish crown jewels.
the wikipedia article says “it was never solved”
but it also says
● The jewels were transferred to a new safewikipedia
● Sir Arthur Vicars, the Ulster King of Arms, had it placed in his library.
● two keys to the safe containing the regalia were both in the custody of Vicars.
● Vicars was known to get drunk on overnight duty and he once awoke to find the jewels around his neck.
now, I’m no jewel detective:
has anyone looked into this Vicars fella
