Thief Returned Terminally Ill Woman's Camera

Jami McElrath got her camera stolen when a thief broke into her car. When the thief found out that Jami is terminally ill, he had a change of heart and returned the camera:

McElrath, who has inoperable cancer, was collecting photos to place in a scrapbook for her children so they could remember her after she was gone. The camera had belonged to her father, who died of a heart attack two years ago.

The woman told her heart-wrenching story to Dallas-area news station WFAA TV, appealing to the burglar to return the camera. [...]

Then something remarkable happened. A few days after the story aired, Douglas got a call from a man who told him to look behind a red car in the station’s parking lot. The caller didn't leave his name; he said only that he felt bad about the incident and wanted to return the camera.

Geez. Most thieves don't give a crap about the situation of the people they steal from. It's called "no conscience".
Maybe this guy just couldn't sell it fast enough.
