A lady found $97,000 stacks in the bathroom and gave it to the proper authorities…

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — A Murfreesboro woman says she returned $97,000 she claims to have found in a Cracker Barrel restroom, but police said Tuesday they have no report of the find. Billie Watts, 75, told The Daily News Journal that she discovered the money inside a tapestry bag hanging from a hook on a stall door last Thursday. But five days later, the money and its anonymous owner remain something of a mystery in the community, where police said that they have no report of the find. While digging through the bag to figure out its owner, Watts says she found a bundle of neatly stacked $1,000 bills. Watts said she and her husband took the money home, but later called the restaurant back and asked if there was a lost-and-found department. She was told yes, and left her number. A woman called about 15 minutes later and verified she was the owner by identifying pictures left in the bag. Watts returned the bag to the owner, whom she described as an elderly woman, but said she does not have the woman’s last name or phone number. Watts said the woman told her that the money came from selling her home and her belongings and that she was going to start a new life in Florida with her son. Watts says the woman offered to pay her $1,000, but Watts refused it. A manager of the Cracker Barrel restaurant, Bill Shupp, said no employees actually saw the money or the elderly owner.

Giving back $97,000 dollars in crisp bills would be hard as hell to do, especially with this economy. We guess it was the right thing to do.

How many Bossipers would give back 97, crisp $1000 dollar bills?

    $97,000??? Honestly What I would do is, place a (small) ad in the paper in the lost and found section for two weeks. After that I would just consider that to be a blessing from GOD (literally). That is a huge bundle of money to stubble on, it would be very scary to just keep it without verifying who owes it. Lord knows I could use it being a college student in todays economy.

  • ms truth

    that is odd number. $100,000 sounds a lot better. so i am guessing she GAVE herself a $3,000 finders fee.

  • da darkness

    She’s a dumb effin broad… There is nothing cute, nor responsible for turning in that kind of cream. Its a super depression She’d been better going in the streets giving the cash to people in shelters. School children, bus drivers for them school children, the parents of them school children, the teachers, not the damn police they get enough. Her family should be ashamed they could of put on a major block party and family reunion. So when cousin with the seven kids can’t come blame her dumb ass. uggh! i’m hurting for her family cause she is… say it for me
