Huge Bag Of Cash
- Year: 2011
Some findings might not rank as one of the major scientific discoveries of our generation, but they are important nonetheless. It is 2011 and Wayne Sabaj went into his Chicago garden simply to find some greens, but he instead found a bag filled with cash. Worried, he took the bag to his father. Both men were worried about the finding, as it could have come from a random bank robbery. They did not want to be blamed or assumed to have stolen anything, so they called the police. The officers took the cash as well as another bag they found in the garden. They even counted the money, which is when they realized the Sabajs found $150,000 in cash.
Police managed to trace the money back to their former neighbor, Deloras Johnson. She had gotten rid of the money because she believed it had been cursed. She ended up dying after she buried the money, so her daughter (Diane Howe) came to collect the cash. Weirdly, Sabaj & Howe went to court in 2013 to determine how to split the money but before a verdict could be reached, Sabaj sadly died. His father then suffered a cardiac arrest when he found out his son passed. A judge ultimately decided to split the money between both families. Honestly though, one would assume Howe should have kept the entire thing since it was her parents’ money, right?
