Californian Woman Arlene Magdanz Inherits $7 Million Dollars In Gold Coins Found In Garage Of Dead Cousin.

Officials in Carson City, Nevada have declared a California woman the rightful owner of $7.4 million in gold coins found in the home of her late cousin.
City Clerk-Recorder Alan Glover said a month's worth of genealogical research determined Arlene Magdanz, a first cousin to the late Walter Samasko Jr., was the only living relative of the man, who died in May.Walter Samasko Jr., who died with only $200 in his checking account, had at least $7million of coins in his Nevada home

They managed to identify Arlene Magdanz, a substitute teacher living in San Rafael, California. Mail Online was unable to reach Magdanz by phone on Friday.
Her attorney said that the first words out of his client's mouth when she learned of the possible inheritance in September were: 'Oh my God, Oh my God.'

Officials found the treasure at Glover's Nevada home, along with his decaying body, one month later after neighbours complained of a foul smell. He was 69 years old and he left behind just $200 in the bank. He hadn't worked since 1968 and was living off stock investments of $140,000 and $25,000.

The gold coins were stowed away in boxes labeled 'books' in Samasko's garage.
Glover had died from heart problems, a coroner found, at least one month before he was discovered.

Leaving no will, and with no known relatives, officials set about tracking down a list of people who had attended Samasko's mother's funeral after she died in 1992, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
She had not spoken to her cousin for a year.
The gold, including coins from Mexico, England, Austria and South Africa dating to 1872, was hauled from the garage using a wheelbarrow and truck, then deposited for safekeeping.
Carson City Clerk Recorder Alan Glover told MailOnline that only coins were found in Mr Samasko’s house. 

‘There were no bars at all. There were all sorts of coins, though – Mexican, British sovereigns, Austrian ducats, (South African) krugerrands, most of it was U.S. $20 gold pieces.’
The British sovereign coins, he said, had ‘both early and later Queen Victoria – from 1840s and the 1890s.’

/wao! so amazing, I believe/
