You will never know what you will find in someone’s laundry.
Carol Sutor of Bristol, Pa., was going through the clothes, which had belonged to her cousin’s daughter’s 85-year-old mother-in-law, who had recently died, when she came across a canvas bag on a hanger. In the bag was cash that had been stuffed into envelopes and wrapped in layers of plastic bags containing a total of $30,000!
Sutor told the website Phillyburbs.com, “I unwrapped the bag, and there was another bag in another bag in another bag, one of those deals, you know?” Inside of them she found stacks of hundred dollar bills.
Well the mystery was solved when Sutor called her to tell her of the cash find, he came over to help count the bills. The cousins think the money had been stashed someplace safe during Superstorm Sandy and never put back in the bank after flooding ruined the mother-in-law’s house and car.
Lattanzi left with the money and called her son-in-law to tell him the good news. Ten minutes later, Lattanzi returned to give Sutor $1,000 and her son-in-law’s thanks for returning the funds.
Sutor said she didn’t spend much time wrestling with what to do. “I had to give it back,” she told the news website. “I believe in karma; whatever I do will come back to me, good or bad.”
