$7M in Gold Found in Dead Man's Home

When Walter Samaszko, Jr. died at his home in Carson City, NV, he had $200 in a bank account. But as officials later discovered, Samaszko had about $7 million stored neatly around his home, the Nevada Appeal reported.

In late June, neighbors called authorities because of a smell emanating from Samaszko’s home. He was a recluse who had told them he hated the government and feared getting shots, but still, it had been a while since they had seen him, according to the Appeal.

According to the coroner, Samaszko, 69, had been dead for at least a month. He died of heart problems, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

In came the cleanup crews, which discovered boxes of gold in the garage.

“At that point, we took the house apart,” said Carson City clerk-recorder Alan Glover.

They found gold coins and bullion, tiny dos-pesos, $20 gold pieces, Austrian ducats, Kruggerrands and English Sovereigns dating to the 1840s – enough gold to fill two wheelbarrows.

Samaszko and his mother had lived in the three-bedroom home since the 1970s, which is around the time they started collecting gold. Glover told the Appeal that the two kept detailed records of the gold they had purchased.

As for who can lay claim to the riches -- Glover said the Internal Revenue Service will take a sizable amount in taxes, and that the rest will likely go to a first cousin, a substitute teacher in San Rafael, CA, who is Samaszko's only relative as far as authorities can tell.

The Las Vegas Sun reported that Glover's office found her using a list of people who had attended Samaszko's mother's funeral.

Samaszko's home is currently for sale for $105,000.

How in the fuck can they lay claim to tax his shit

Gold is like property. So if you have 7 million in Diet Coke.... are they going to take half your Coke and call it Tax

The government would tax taxes if they could.

About 100 years ago there were 400 pages of federal tax laws, today there's about 72,000.

The good thing though this has created a lot of jobs. There's up to 1.2 million tax preparers in the U.S. (IRS, 2010). There's about 765,000 police (US DOJ, 2008).


69% of Americans think the federal income tax system is unfair (American Solutions, 2007).
I'm pretty sure there was a lower percentage of Americans unhappy with British taxes when they decided to rebel against them leading up to the American Revolution.

That's a creepy picture. It appears to be a form of ID.
