October 21, 1987|United Press International

RICHMOND, Va. — The bust of Edgar Allan Poe, stolen over the weekend from the Poe Museum here, has been found at The Raven Inn--missing nevermore.

An unidentified man carried the bust into the bar about midnight Tuesday and ordered a mixed drink for himself and a beer for the bust. He scribbled Poe's "Spirits of the Dead" on a paper bag and left before police arrived.
