When Anita Baskin moved into her Detroit home about a year and a half ago, she had no idea what was hidden inside. Meantime, Wanda Corder of Taylor had given up hope of ever seeing $10,000 worth of savings bonds that were stolen from her home. But Sunday, she got them back! Here's how: Baskin was remodeling the basement of her Detroit home this winter when a ceiling tile was removed and the bonds fell out. She looked up the old address on the bonds and tried to locate Corder, who's name and Social Security number are also printed on them, without any luck. So she called Fox 2. We helped connect the two women and to get the bonds returned to the rightful owner.
