The man who found the famous treasure of Forrest Fenn in the Rocky Mountains was forced to reveal his identity. His name is Jack Stuef, he is a 32-year-old medical student.
The treasure hunter, who took part in the search for the treasure of the writer Forrest Fenn in the Rocky Mountains, confessed – although if he had achieved his goal, he would have remained anonymous. A student from Michigan said he had found the treasure chest of Fenn, and the writer’s family confirmed this.
He disclosed his identity because a recent lawsuit had ordered him to go public. However, he does not want to part with the secrets of the treasure and the keys that led him to it.
The famous Fenn treasure hunt began 10 years ago when the author published a mysterious poem in his autobiography to lead potential researchers to a place in the Wyoming desert where his treasure chest was hidden. Fennam estimates that more than 350,000 people were looking for the treasure chest, and some even died in the process.
Stuff spent two years searching for Fennham’s treasure, which included gold, jewelry and other artifacts worth over $1 million. Finally he found it in the Wyoming desert in June.
