A fifth man died trying to find the legendary Treasure of Forrest Fenn in the Rocky Mountains of the United States

The Colorado Utah border conservation agency reported the death of 58-year-old Michael Sexton. Together with a friend, they rented snowmobiles and climbed far into the Rocky Mountains, where Michael was stuck in the snow and died of injuries. So Sexton was already the fifth victim. His surviving friend confirmed that they were going in search of this famous treasure.

Forrest Fenn himself doesn't comment on what happened and holds his constant position. The treasure he hid is real, all the clues to his search have long been published on the Internet, and the fact that many people are climbing into dangerous places with the risk of death - are their personal problems. In December last year, Fenn was sued, demanding either to disclose the location of the treasure, or admit it was all fiction. At the same time, the plaintiffs bet that U.S. law prohibits leaving garbage and various items in the Rocky Mountains, so it is illegal to find the treasure chest there.

Applicants are unlikely to get anything from Fenn himself, he is 89 years old and although he has successfully recovered from cancer, his health leaves much to be desired. Of course, there is a chance that on his deathbed he will reveal his secret, but it is vanishingly small. Forrest Fenn hid a treasure chest worth about $2 million in the Rocky Mountains when he was 80 years old, in his right mind, hoping to start an interesting legend. Instead, he launched a chain of tragic deaths of treasure hunters. The trouble he has received is more than enough to make the final decision to carry his secret to the grave.
