In 2010, a millionaire called Forrest Fenn self-published a memoir containing clues to a treasure hunt in the Rocky Mountains. Fenn had buried a chest full of items from his antiquities collection – including jewelry, jade carvings and plenty of gold coins deemed worth between $1m and $3m – hoping to give people the Indiana Jones type of adventure that had defined his life.
Long article, but tl;dr: He dead.

Also, he amassed his large art collection by robbing graves and cultural artifacts.

Also, also, several people died looking for his treasure, which some suspect never existed (despite his announcement earlier this summer that it had been found).

Plus, he was a pervert who asked younger treasure-hunter for nude photos.
