GOBLES  (WKZO) There’s some good news for a heart broken West Michgian man who lost his son in a car crash, then lost his photo memories of his son to a burglar who broke into his home and stole cameras and tapes last November.

Gregory Courtney had only been back from serving as a marine in Afghanistan a short time when he died in that auto wreck near Gobles.

Joe Courtney made a public plea, that gained some national coverage, asking the burglar to give the stolen items back, but he heard nothing

Now Allegan County Detectives investigating another crime have stumbled across some of the tapes, the young man’s marine back-pack, cam-corder case and other stolen items, but have not located a camera with about 3,000 photos in its memory.

They still hope to recover that. They have reportedly identified, but not arrested suspects.

Courtney had almost given up hope of recovering the tapes, and is glad to at least have some of the memories of his son back.
