Muriel was a client of Dr. Gillman, one of the murder victims during the theft, and a Trustee of the Metopolitan Musuem of Art
Muriel Silberstein-Storfer, revered art educator who created the immensely popular Parent-Child Studio Workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and founded the non-profit outreach organization, Doing Art Together.
Though she rarely attended official Museum business, she always attended the annual holiday party, which followed the last meeting of the Board of the year. She had gone to the prior board meeting, as well, in order to take advantage of the private viewing of The Moonstone arranged for Museum Board Members. She had contacted Dr. Gillman at the recommendation of a mutual acquaintance, Quentin Robinson, who was quite convinced she was becoming psychic, and needed a professional to guide her through the process.
Muriel leaves behind an invalid husband, who has been in full-time care for over twenty years, after suffering a stroke.
