The identity of the one who found the treasure worth a million dollars is revealed

It became known who exactly found the treasures of the American millionaire Forrest Fenn. This is reported by The Guardian.

On Monday, December 7th, Outside magazine published an article in which the identity of the treasure hunter is revealed for the first time. It turned out to be 32-year-old medical student from the American state of Michigan, Jonathan Stuef. The name was confirmed by millionaire's grandson Shiloh Forrest Old in a statement posted on the website of Dal Neitzel, who was a close friend of Fenn's.

Initially, Steph had hoped to remain anonymous, and Fenn did his best to help him with this. The treasure hunter had to give his name only because of a lawsuit. It was filed by 47-year-old Barbara Andersen, who unsuccessfully searched for Fenn's treasure in the state of New Mexico, spent thousands of dollars on it and found nothing. In court, she claimed that someone had hacked into her computer, stolen her transcript of Fenn's poems, and had followed her while traveling.

In 2010, Fenn announced that he had hidden a treasure chest in the Rockies. The treasure consisted of ancient coins, gold nuggets, diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and other valuables with a total value of one to two million dollars (up to 137 million rubles). Its coordinates were encoded in the verses that are given in Fenn's book "The Passion of the Chase."

Thousands of treasure hunters tried to find the treasure, at least five of them died during the search. In June 2020, Fenn announced that the treasure had been found. According to him, the treasure hunter sent him a photograph of the chest as proof. In early September, Fenn passed away at the age of 90.
