Walter Samaszko Jr. Left $7 Million in Gold

A Carson City, Nev., man who was found dead in his home (pictured below) in June left only $200 in the bank — but a fortune worth millions more hidden inside his house.

Walter Samaszko Jr., who’s been described as a recluse, had been dead for more than a month when authorities discovered his body. And as officials were clearing out his home for sale, they uncovered a pot of gold — literally. Samaszko had been hiding gold bars and coins worth a total of $7 million in boxes in his house and garage. Some of the items included coins from Mexico, England, Austria and South Africa dating back to 1872.

Samaszko was determined to have died of heart complications.

“Nobody had any clue he was hoarding the gold,” Carson City Clerk-Recorder Alan Glover told the Las Vegas Sun. According to the newspaper, there were so many gold bars and coins that Glover had to use a wheelbarrow to haul them to his truck. Glover later deposited the treasure for safekeeping.

Because Samaszko didn’t have a will or any close relatives, lawyers tracked down his first cousin, substitute teacher Arlene Magdanz of San Rafael, Calif.

According to the lawyer who contacted Magdanz, her response was simply: “Oh, my God. Oh, my God.”
