Painting Stolen From TV's Peter Marshall Found After 29 Years

"Hollywood Squares" host commissioned the portrait of his son.

 A painting stolen from the Encino home of "Hollywood Squares" host Peter Marshall in 1983 will be returned to him, police said Thursday.

Shannon Turk was at a flea market in Long Beach when the painting, which she described as "Gypsies," caught her eye. She did an Internet search to find out who had done the painting.

Turk learned it was Charles Bragg, who informed her the painting had been stolen by burglars on Jan. 30, 1983.

Bragg put her in contact with the Marshall family. She and the Marshall family will soon get together, detectives said.

Marshall commissioned Bragg to paint a portrait of his son. The painting known as "Brother Dave" was hung in Marshall's home for some time before the burglary, detectives said.

Anyone with information regarding the theft of the painting was asked to call detectives Tracey Angeles or Casey Cox at (818) 374-7769.
