No known reason

I just read an old Times obituary of Robert Volpe, a New York Police detective and expert on art thefts. Anyhow, aside from him being an interesting person, the obit carried this rather odd sentence:

He had an Armani suit to wear to auctions and a Groucho Marx disguise for no known reason.

I don’t think I have ever read such a line in an obit before. Somehow that didn’t make it into the Blog of Death entry on him.

    That was an intriguing detail. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find another source (besides The Times) that would verify it. Thus, it wasn’t included in his Blog of Death obit.
