Do you have any good points where treasures are ?



This one needs lots of research but if I was in the area I would be all over it.

HARTFORD COUNTY – On April 18, 1957, Mrs. Wanda Slater was working in the kitchen of her suburban Suffield bungalow when she heard a man call “Hey, Wanda” from behind a nearby bush.
Alone and fearing for her life Mrs. Slater ran through the front door, fled to the Suffield Police Department, and reported she believed the voice she heard was her brother, Francis Kolakowski, a 42-year-old machinist from Hartford.
Just three weeks before, on Friday, March 29th, Kolakowski had shot and killed his wife, Helen, in their Hartford home as their 13-year-old daughter watched.
Kolakowski, who had previously been diagnosed with a “psychopathic personality,” fled into the night, eluding police.
Considered armed and dangerous, the State Police and FBI were called in, igniting one of the most intensive fugitive manhunts ever in north-central Connecticut.
Unable to locate the killer, officers considered the possibility that Kolakowski may have killed himself. But that theory was cast out on April 11th after witnesses identified Kolakowski from a police photo line up as the lone gunman who pulled off a daring daylight robbery of a Mercer & Dunbar armored car.
The car was delivering the payroll for the Hartford Machine Screw Company in Windsor, where Kolakowski had once been employed. Kolakowski escaped with the payroll of $66,573.
Tipped off that Kolakowski may be at his sister’s home, Suffield police alerted the Sheriff’s department, the State Police and the FBI.
Meanwhile, Suffield officers were surrounding Mrs. Slater’s home. Kolakowski refused to surrender. FBI Special Agent Richard P. Horan, State Police Captain Phillip Schwartz, and Suffield police Chief Frank Sutula approached the rear of the residence and forced entry into the basement.
Hoping to seize Kolakowski before he realized officers had gained entry into the home, Horan quietly began ascending the basement stairs.
While doing so, the door at the top of the stairs swung open and a single gunshot struck agent Horan, killing him.
Before anyone could react, Kolakowski slammed the door and barricaded himself inside the kitchen, where he fired on officers and ambulance personal who were attempting to reach agent Horan.
Officers fired tear-gas into the house when another shot was heard from inside.
Kolakowski had committed suicide.
Every attempt was made to recover the payroll money stolen by Kolakowski, but he wasn’t talking and the money was never found.
Twenty-four years later, in October 1981, two bottle hunters digging in a field near Hartford unearthed a decaying burlap sack containing a portion of the currency and some silver coins taken by Kolakowski in the 1957 Mercer & Dunbar armored car heist.
How much exactly was recovered was not disclosed, but the balance of the loot to this day remains outstanding.

 [waveing]Our friend, the captain was very busy if all the stories about him are true. He told me that he bury treasures on Charles Island of Milford shores, and that it is all mine.  Too bad.

Thank you Seldom Right for this true interesting story.  Around 1966, my friend, Walt show me the location where the house once was. I am upset that we did not search the woods where the money could had been buried. I do not know where the location is.  Check out Connecticut newspapers back then to get leads.  This story is in my inactive file or as I like to call it:  Forget about it file.  Good luck and good hunting.  Keep in touch.

Not cooling so much yet. We are expecting 65F on Christmas day for pity sake. Last winter we had 18" of snow on the ground and before the end over 4 feet of the white stuff. Didn't melt until the end of April. We even had a shady spot where it lasted until mid May.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Wait unit January and February. At the present time, i am doing research by reading history books, and reading old stories in newspapers.  I have some good leads for Connecticut where I live.  I do not read treasures magazines and treasure books, because most stories are not true,  and there are many people looking for these treasures. Each to their own.  Good hunting and good luck.
