Even though she gave up all hope....

It may not be the most important cold case in Queensland, Australia's history, but the theft of a video camera from an outback town 20 years ago has finally been solved. It was stolen from Sharon Stretton's home in Mount Isa. It was a costly purchase for a 20-something mom with young kids. She reported the theft to police, since the VHS tape contained precious home videos.

The camera was recently found in an abandoned public housing complex and turned over to police, who linked it back to her 1998 police report! They returned it to Ms. Stretton, who now lives in Gympie, complete with case and cords. She's very grateful, but at this time she has no idea what to do with it, or how to safely save the videos on the tape, which is still in the camera.
