David and Ruth gladly passed the watch over to the museum and enjoyed their earnings. They were able to go on their tropical holiday as they had planned for years, they were able to help their family with whatever they needed, and they had no worries about their retirement years.
What started off as a mystery, was eventually solved, at least partially, as the body has still not been found, and the lives of so many have been changed following this amazing finding. One man’s loss is another man’s gain, and with no doubt, Davd’s journey paid off at the end of the day.
David and Ruth Were Prime Suspects
The police officer began investigating David and Ruth. They asked when they moved into the house, if they had any renovations done, if any person apart from them had stayed in the house since they moved in, and carried on questioning them about their day-to-day habits and ways of life.
A journalist was there too, documenting everything, portraying David and Ruth like two criminals. The two were overwhelmed and found everything a little too much to take in and comprehend. David observed his house, the living room, and the garden, and then he saw someone he had already seen before.
The Watch Specialist
David looked closely, and there he was. It was the watch specialist who approached David and introduced him to someone who worked at the regional museum. The museum representative explained that the watch belonged to some notable person who had died in this area a few years previously, however, his body was never found.
After telling the story in detail, the museum added that the watch was worth (to the museum) a lot, and the fact that it was found in their backyard automatically turned it into their possession. When David and Ruth realized how much they were about to earn from their findings, the whole episode suddenly became easier to take in. There was a significant loot awaiting him.
The little watch David found turned out to be part of a much bigger story. Can you imagine what would have happened had he found something bigger? That's exactly what happens in the following story.
Have you ever wondered what's hidden deep underneath your house? Surely just dirt, you might think. However, you might be surprised to find something spectacular hidden right under your feet. It’s always a little magical when we find hidden treasures in our backyard — we feel like modern-day explorers.
There are stories of people finding 650-year-old treasures, a rare whale fossil, a WWII airplane, and many other oddities you’d never imagine lying right under our noses. This exactly happened to Irwin when he discovered what was under his backyard. After finding the original house plan, he saw something very peculiar that he'd never noticed before.
To discover what was hiding underneath the ground, Irwin brought a metal detector expert on board to do the job. When the detector started beeping incessantly at a random spot on the lawn, the expert marked them immediately. He believed this is where the mysterious underground surprise could be found.
The metal detector expert was suddenly filled with intrigue. He knew the machine wouldn’t have started beeping like that if this were regarding a simple pair of barbecue tongs. There was more to this finding than he could ever imagine.
