T호 게임hompson claims malcolm blight medal was stolen from her
The medal – awarded after the death of a child in 2010 – was taken from a ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the publication of Margaret Smith’s book.
A court heard how Ms Sowden had been told t월드 카지노he medal was being held in a “secret place” and was “lost”.
The medal was later recovered by police in 2010 by Miss Sowden’s brother but the identity of the owner has not been revealed.
Miss Sowden said she was “over the moon” at the outcome of the hearing as the decision meant her son’s death was “forever buried”.
“I hope that this decision can bring the medal back home – but it has become part of my legacy and I have tried my best to protect that by keeping it in a place as secure and as safe as possible,” she said.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it had accepted that “a number of people may have had a role in this, including one of my partners”.

The court heard that after the medal disappeared Mr Smith had “confessed” to having stolen it from his bedroom in 2013.
But the CPS has suggested that the information must be believed because it included information of a “grave nature”.
In a statement to the hearing, it added: “The crown has been informed that some members of the public may have shared information in the run-up to the trial and that a number of witnesses who were at the hearing told their concerns to the police.
“As part of the course of the investigation, the police have been able to trace the gold medal to a room which no longer exists.”
During the hearing, Mr Smith’s lawyer Ian Taylor said the murder of his son was an “unprecedented crime with significant implications to the rest of our society, including to our communities and wider society”.
