In this thread http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1073850/, Mattias mentioned one of the convention organizers had his collection stolen after the convention. The owner (a guy named Per Valgreen) had his collection on display at the convention and after the con, it was stored in his garage, from where is was stolen. Luckily he got most covered by his insurance company.
Now the burglar / thief have been revealed. It was a guy, who is well known in the Danish Star wars community, but not on these boards as far as I know, except for our Swedish friends, who knows him. So Daniel, he's not dead as you expected, but you were right he was involved with some gangsters (probably Hell's Angels). Guess he earned them money and did this to save his own skin. No matter what, his action was totally unacceptable, you just don't break into other peoples homes and still their assets, especially not someone, whom you have known since the mid or late 1990's (Per stated hosting conventions at a gymnasium, where his was working in the late 1990's, "The Rat", who was a teenager back then, often came to those cons). Actually he was called The Rat back then, because of his rodent-like face, that nickname suits him quit well now.
