Stolen Oil Portrait Of Clinton Returned To Little Rock Police

Mon., Sept. 8, 1997

A portrait of President Clinton stolen from the state Capitol was returned to police Sunday.

The oil portrait was taken Thursday night or early Friday morning from the rotunda at the Capitol.

“The investigation is ongoing,” said Little Rock police detective Bob Wortham.

Wortham would not say if any arrests had been made.

The FBI is involved in the investigation because the portrait is owned by the National Archives. The painting is to hang in the Clinton Library planned for Little Rock.

The portrait, painted in 1992 by Lawrence Williams of Burbank, Calif., had hung on the second floor of the rotunda, among portraits of other governors.
