August 08, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A woman recovered a ceramic turtle containing the ashes of her husband's previous wife after accidentally selling it for 50 cents at a rummage sale in Elmira.

When she realized her mistake, Anita Lewis began a frantic search. An anonymous caller's tip to the Star-Gazette of Elmira led her to a Salvation Army Thrift Shop in Horseheads, where she found the turtle with the ashes.
