As people get older they do some pretty strange things with their money. Some put it under their mattress, some hide it in suitcases under the bed, my grandmother used to do that. You read stories of people freezing to death because they did not turn their heat on but had a few hundred thousand dollars in the closet. This poor guy decided to bury his money because he did not trust his bank (can’t blame him for that) five years ago and came back to get some cash. Unfortunately for him, worms and moisture made a meal out of his money.
He should of used a plastic bag not a burlap one.
