Elton John's Famed Heart-Shaped Glasses Stolen From Museum

(Radio.com) The Rock 'n' Soul Museum in Memphis, Tennessee promises a "complete Memphis music story," but for now, the story is missing a key portion. Elton John's iconic heart-shaped glasses have been stolen from the museum, WREG reports.

The glasses were kept in a locked case, but museum officials report that the lock seems to have been tampered with. Employee theft is not suspected at this time, and officials hope that video surveillance and fingerprints will provide a break in the case.

The glasses are on loan from a private owner and are insured for $2,000. If caught, the culprit who stole them could face up to 12 years in prison. Read more here.
