I am having trouble coming up with a word or phrase for this concept (prefer a word if possible):
I originally suspected that I did something awful several years ago, but after I investigated I found that I did not; someone else was at fault. Now I am satisfied and relieved.
Example: "You know that $1000 vase I broke in 1986? Well, it turns out it wasn't me; it was Billy! Now I am/feel X"
Where X is some combination of feeling relieved, satisfied, and vindicated, but appropriate for and specific to this context. My instinct is to use vindicated, but is there something stronger than this? It's not just that I feel vindicated, but also that I know the identity of the actual perpetrator.
