My VERY FAVORITE type of story is one which features both corpses and treasure hoards:
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.'s house was being cleared for sale, officials made a surprise discovery: gold bars and coins valued at least $7 million.
At a young age, DuckTales and common sense taught me that the best way to die is by diving into a pit of money. RIP, Mr. Samaszko, you American hero.*
And thank you, Slog tipper rob!, for making my day.
*Yeah, he died from heart complications. Still: $7 million in gold bars!
