Gold worth $7 million found in house after Nevada man dies
Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012 | 2 a.m.
CARSON CITY —
Walter Samasko Jr., a recluse, died at home in May, but his body wasn’t discovered until June, when neighbors complained of the smell coming from his house.
There was only $200 in his bank account. But there was a $7 million surprise at home.
As the house was being cleaned for sale, officials discovered gold bars and gold coins stored in boxes in the garage and in the house.
The coins had been minted in such places as Mexico, England, Austria and South Africa. Some dated to 1872.
There were so many coins that Carson City Clerk Alan Glover used a wheelbarrow to haul the gold to his truck and deposit it for safekeeping.

The sad part is that it will wind up in some gov't coffer becuase the man doesnt have any known relatives.

I would think she has a chance of getting 1% after the lawyers, Judges & IRS take their share.
Using a list of those who attended the mother’s funeral, Glover’s office tracked down Arlene Magdanz, a first cousin living in San Rafael, Calif.
Magdanz, a substitute teacher, could not be reached for comment. But a lawyer who talked to her said her first reaction was, “Oh, my God. Oh, my God.”

He sounds like some of the members on here. Hoarder, conspiracy theorist, doesn't trust banks, stockpile of cash, weapons and canned food, nice!
I like this part-
"There were so many coins that Carson City Clerk Alan Glover used a wheelbarrow to haul the gold to his truck and deposit it for safekeeping."
Hmm? Wonder how many "accidentally" fell out of the wheelbarrow between his truck and the depository?
