I say you go find this woman and do a photo-documentary on her and how
she is using what she thinks is an old camera to provide a better
environment for her children. In all seriousness, she'd probably make
a great subject and working so close to someone she stole from might
be better "treatment" anyway... or she might realize just how much she
had when she took the camera.
