Mystery Solved: The Cornet Caper Comes to an End

Mystery Solved: The Cornet Caper Comes to an End

Many area detectives have searched and investigated why the Putnam Museum’s cornet was stolen. Initially we knew the thief had white gloves and got away with the cornet. But not for long! Thank you to those of you who searched all over Scott County to find locations, took pictures of evidence, and helped lead to a final conclusion. From all the clues we found the horn that the thief took was a fake! The Putnam Curators knew they had to keep their collection protected so they temporarily put a fake on display. The valves, pieces of the horn, and the mouth piece of the fake were found at locations like Lock and Dam 14, Wapsi Environmental Center, the Scott County Library, and The Little Wayside Church at the Nap-sin-ekee Hollow, and Walnut Grove/Pioneer Village! Thank you everyone for helping solve the mystery of the Scott County Cornet Caper! Now we can finally rest, but you never know if the thief will strike again!
