It's true, some digital footprint left behind always, but it is also true, that You'll never find anything. What is gone, that is gone for ever.
But one thing I can say to You, if there is really somebody, who did it, then the person is somewhere near to You and You know him or her very well. So, think about it.

Stole your password to what account/website? Best thing to do is to go to a different computer (or smartphone) that's clean (e.g. doesn't have viruses or malware), change your password to that account and any email address(es) it's associated with, to something STRONG. Then scan your system for malware to make sure there's no infection that helped steal your credentials.
