A mother is fighting to reclaim her son's possessions more than seven years after he was murdered.
Nancy Klamfoth's son Jason Schmalenberger was stabbed to death during a road rage incident in April 2005.
"Some people talk about closure," Klamfoth said. "I'm not a drawer, you don't close this."
Klamfoth said that she has been waiting for the return of Schmalenberger's wallet.
Klamfoth said that investigators kept his wallet because her son's killer continued to appeal. Three weeks ago, when Klamfoth requested the wallet again, she said she got a big surprise.
"He said, 'Well, we found the wallet, but I have some bad news,'" Klamfoth said.
Unbeknownst to Klamfoth, her son had $150 on him at the time of his death.
"It's not the money. It really isn't. But to think that they didn't do what they should have done," Klamfoth said.
She said she was not previously told about the money and that investigators deposited it into a fund for other crime victims.
"Why would they put it in a fund and not notify his wife or his widow or me or somebody?" Klamfoth said.
Investigators said that they would return the money to Schmalenberger's family. Investigators also said that they would look into why it took so long to notify the family about the money.
