    Thanks for sharing. I love all treasure stories but this one is extremely interesting and well worth deep research. If he bought 160 acres with accumulated stolen money that means he had some form of discipline. Even though a psycho. And dying young and in the fashion he did itโ€™s not a stretch at all to think there could be a cache out there. He sure wasnโ€™t using any banks.
