    Cash found in Ohio house's walls becomes nightmare

    CLEVELAND – A contractor who found $182,000 in Depression-era currency hidden in a bathroom wall has ended up with only a few thousand dollars, but he feels some vindication.

    The windfall discovery amounted to little more than grief for contractor Bob Kitts, who couldn't agree on how to split the money with homeowner Amanda Reece.

    It didn't help Reece much, either. She testified in a deposition that she was considering bankruptcy and that a bank recently foreclosed on one of her properties.

    And 21 descendants of Patrick Dunne — the wealthy businessman who stashed the money that was minted in a time of bank collapses and joblessness — will each get a mere fraction of the find...........

    Much respect to that contractor for not just taking the money when he found it.

    Honest to goodness truth.
    I heard my wife's family talking about this at length.
    My wife's nephew works for his dad.
    His dad is a realtor and a home inspector.
    My nephew has been working for him in the home inspection business.
    Earlier this year my nephew found what he estimates to be between 200,000 to 400,000 in a wall, in an old home, between the lathe work in an attic.
    He called his dad. His dad told him to put it back and remain silent about it.
    He did. It's there.
    I am curious.
    I swear this is true.

    Edit-- The home conveyed to a new owner. Neither the seller or the new owner have any idea about the money.
    I do not know which property it is, nor do I want to... would you?
