$7 Million in Gold Coins Found In Dead Mans Home
A California woman may have a multimillion dollar fortune headed her way after authorities found an estimated $7 million worth of gold coins in her recluse cousin’s home.
Walter Samasko Jr., 69, died in May due to heart problems and was not discovered until June when neighbors complained of a bad smell coming from his house.
Samasko lived in Carson City, Nev., a city about 30 miles south of Reno.
When authorities went to clean out his home, they found boxes of gold coins in his home and garage.
“He was quite a hoarder. He had boxes and boxes and boxes of things,” Carson City Clerk Alan Grover told ABCNews.com. Grover said there were many containers of food and cans.
