Boston Transit Police Recover Missing $40,000 Violin
BOSTON (AP) _ Police have located a $40,000 violin that had been accidentally left by its owner at a Boston train station.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police say the violin was recovered Tuesday night. The 1855 George Gemunder instrument along with a $6,000 bow is expected to be returned to owner Amy Sims on Wednesday. They appear to be undamaged.
Sims, a freelance musician who lives in Watertown, left the violin at South Station on Saturday when she was in a hurry to get home.
She tells the Boston Herald that the violin is ``like my child'' and called word of its recovery ``the best news of my life.''
Transit police say a woman seen in surveillance video with the violin is no longer a person of interest and assisted in the investigation.
