    ALTON, N.H. - A 10-year-old boy picking up litter in New Hampshire found a charred backpack stuffed with more than $8,000 in cash.

    Arie Johnston of Dover was helping his grandmother with her town's annual roadside cleanup when he spotted the backpack Saturday. He told Foster's Daily Democrat his first thought was that a person had been killed for the money.

    Arie's grandmother called the Alton town clerk, who identified the bag's owner based on the passports and other documents found with the money. The owner was a woman who had lived across the street until a fire damaged her apartment last year.

    Police say the woman has since moved to Maine and has asked that her belongings be given to her sister who lives in Alton. Arie's grandmother says a reward may be coming.

    My late son was of the same character: Once, when we were flat broke and living in a drug infested area of town, a person got out of his car and money dropped from his pocket. I scooped it up, and looked back to see the person going up the stairs to the drug dealer's apt. As we were on our way to get burgers with our only $5, I wanted to keep the $50, but my son, even knowing it would be spent on drugs by the guy who lost it, returned it to the owner. At seven, he would not let me steal. What a pure soul he was!

    Great young men! To be honest, I would have kept the 8 K or would have taken the 50 to the drug dealer appartement for my own entertainment.
