"The date was what freaked me out, maybe it was meant to be found."

Lewiston, Maine - Val Gregoire's widow and children all knew the story: On a day in 1951, Val was hit over the head in Boston and woke without his wallet or his pants.
Now, they have proof. His wallet has returned. On April 11 - 56 years to the day after Gregoire lost it - the wallet was discovered by a demolition worker at Boston's Paramount Theatre.
