Very Mysterious Smithsonian Article About Possible Velázquez Painting

A Velázquez in the Cellar?

Paragraph 6 on page 3 is especially curious. Where did Capt. Charles Hervey Townshend get the painting and why is the angel's head cut off? Why do they not tell us more about the provenance of the painting? I guess it is to be continued...

I can't wait to hear more!
