LANCASTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts husband and wife are praising their local police, who were able to recover photographs of their late infant son that had been deleted by someone who stole their camera.

The Lancaster, Massachusetts, home of Felicia and David Neeley was ransacked by thieves Aug. 30 when Felicia left for a short time to deliver toiletries to her husband, working a 24-hour shift at the Clinton Fire Department.

Among the items stolen was a camera with about 200 photographs, including some of the couple's son, who died last October hours after his birth.

Surveillance images released by police resulted in a woman turning herself in. Police say she had the stolen camera but had deleted the photos.

Police bought software the helps recover deleted photos.

Felicia Neeley calls the police "awesome."
