According to sources, at first, the family did not understand what to do with seeing so many rupees. Hobard thought that with this money he could repay his home loan and lead a good life by taking retirement. Meanwhile, he also consulted his lawyer. His lawyer also said that he should keep this money with him because no one can take legal action against you.
However, Hobard later thought he would return the money to its rightful owner. He also sought suggestions from a relative in this regard, after which his relative also supported his decision. Hobard then returned the suitcase full of notes to the manager of the same shopping center from where he had purchased the suitcase.
When the real owner of this suitcase was discovered, it was revealed that he belonged to a family of Newberry. After the father’s death, the family donated his suitcase to a second-hand shopping center, along with other belongings, without knowing what was inside it. Actually, this shopping center provides things cheaply to needy people. The owner of the shopping center praised the honesty of Hobard Kirby, saying that after he returned the suitcase, it was our responsibility to transfer the money to its rightful owner.
