    NV - $7 Million In Gold Bars Found In Reclusive Manís Home

    $7 Million In Gold Bars Found In Reclusive Manís Home Month After He Died
    September 17, 2012 4:57 PM

    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) ó A Carson City recluse whose body was found in his home at least a month after he died left only $200 in his bank account.

    But as Walter Samaszko Jr.ís house was being cleared for sale, officials made a surprise discovery: gold bars and coins valued at $7 million.

    Wow, that's quite the stash of gold!

    It is a shame that this man died alone and no one even knew it. I hate the thought that he was dead a month before anyone found him. This is a sad story. I hope he rests in peace.

    I just have to wonder what this guy did for a living. Where did this massive wealth come from? The article does not say what he did for a living. He was a recluse and apparently saw no one on a regular basis; not even a doctor.

    This is a big mystery. I don't suppose there will be a follow-up with more information because it seems there never is.

    Very interesting story! (and one very lucky first cousin!)
