San Rafael woman heir to $7 million fortune

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.

When 69-year-old recluse Walter Samaszko Jr., was found dead of heart failure inside his Carson City home, a realtor made an astounding discovery. The apparent survivalist had stashed away ammunition boxes filled with $20 gold coins. Their weight alone is valued at more than $7 million.

The relative in San Rafael is waiting for the courts to decide how much of it she'll get to keep after the IRS takes its share.
