U of I employee solves missing wallet "cold case"
URBANA — An employee in the University of Illinois' refrigeration shop has helped solve a "cold case" of sorts.
The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports Mike Porter was draining the Freon from a large freezer when he noticed a wad of what looked like dirty paper towels. When he unrolled the towels and looked more closely Porter discovered a woman's wallet.
Porter says that's when he called his boss to report a "cold case."
The wallet was stolen from a university employee's office 12 years ago. Barbara Meyer, who is now retired, says a woman was arrested for the theft. But the wallet wasn't found until Porter's discovery last week.
Still tucked inside were credit cards, a $100 gift card and a few phone numbers. The only thing missing was $80 cash.
