BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Boulder County Coroner’s Office will pay $1,200 to the family of a woman who was killed in a car crash in Longmont after accusations that money was stolen from her purse after she died.

Coroner Emma Hall tells The Daily Camera (https://bit.ly/165NmX5 ) even though no charges were filed, she believes it’s the right thing to do because her office was the lead investigating agency at the scene.

Sheriff’s investigators interviewed all of the people who responded to the Sept. 23 crash that killed 28-year-old Lisa Garcia and 58-year-old Therese Woodworth after Woodworth’s family reported the missing cash when they retrieved her purse from the coroner’s office.

A detective determined that between $800 and $1,200 was gone when the purse was inventoried by a coroner’s investigator.

No charges were filed because investigators couldn’t establish where the money went.
