Two years ago, on CBS’ “Sunday Morning,” he review a poem that he says binds clues to a plcae of a chest containing value fit for a bandit  — bullion coins, changed metals and other artifacts. Its accurate dollar value is not famous — some contend millions.

It was dark somewhere in a Rocky Mountains.

A ripped wire was located a brief stretch from that vehicle. It had been stretched opposite a run of a Rio Grande. A physique was recovered 5 to 7 miles downstream from Wallace’s car.

On Sunday, Fenn gave a matter to “CBS This Morning”: “My heart and my prayers go out to his family and his church…. It is such a tragedy.”

       
Fenn’s poem:

As we have left alone in there
And with my treasures bold,
I can keep my tip where,
And spirit of cache new and old.
Begin it where comfortable waters halt
And take it in a ravine down,
Not far, though too distant to walk.
Put in next a home of Brown.
From there it’s no place for a meek,
The finish is ever sketch nigh;
There’ll be no paddle adult your creek,
Just complicated loads and H2O high.
If you’ve been correct and found a blaze,
Look fast down, your query to cease,
But tarry meagre with marvel gaze,
Just take a chest and go in peace.
So because is it that we contingency go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers we already know,
I’ve finished it tired, and now I’m weak.
So hear me all and listen good,
Your bid will be value a cold.
If we are dauntless and in a wood
I give we pretension to a gold.
