Four people have died searching for a treasure hidden by a millionaire in 2009 in the southwestern Rocky Mountains. The estimated $2m treasure has yet to be discovered and its whereabouts are contained within a cryptic poem that the millionaire wrote after he hid his treasure.
A treasure hunter named Tommy Thompson located a ship that sank in 1857 called the SS Central America. The ship carried several tons of gold, and in 1987, he recovered over $1 billion worth of gold from it. He never paid back his crew or investors, and hasn’t been seen in years.
