Money Inside Safe Will Pay Deceased Woman's Bills

When Sally Daher died ten years ago, she left behind unpaid nursing home bills. She also left a shoe store she'd owned. In 2008, the store's new tenant got rid of a heavy old safe. A tow truck driver dumped the safe in an empty lot. Authorities found $178,000 inside, and now a judge has decided the money will pay Daher's debts.
