Why were the shoes being sold 'as new' when they had been previously sold, used and returned? That is against the law. They are supposed to go to a discount store like Marshalls that sells customer returns, eBay or the Swap Shop. Shame on Dilliards! 60 Minutes where are you? Give the old man the dough and a free pair!

Anon ... The article never said the shoes were "used" ... just that they had probably been purchased and returned. There are many people who buy shoes (or clothes) without trying them on and then return them after they've tried them at home. Perhaps they were purchased for someone else and they didn't fit.
Marshalls sells "last season", not simply customer returns.

Gee, look at the denomination of the bills. Do you think drugs was involved in any way ? Dooh ! I do not suspect anyone will claim this money.

As soon as you drive the car off the lot it is used. In other words someone tried it on and now the shoe got toe jam.

Old people hide money all the time. The husband probably died and the wife returned the shoes without checking them first. Now she is probably dead from a heart attack after hearing this story.

The lesson learned here is never try on the shoes while the sales clerk is watching.
That would have been a nice Christmas Bonus for this guy.

What does "But there's no Cinderella to this tale for now" mean? Lamaour Stancil has no clue what the Cinderella story is all about. Do the editors at this paper? Can Stancil send stories to the public with no supervision?

The 'Cinderella Tale' would have been if the police let the man keep the money. And the 'for now' part means that the shopper and the clerk may get to split it in 90 days if it's not claimed.
And what does this mean from your comment?:
"Do the editors at this paper?"
Do they do what? Maybe complete a sentence dumb-a**!!
