Will your will will were you want?

A Chicago man who died in 1994 was buried in a pauper's grave with three other bodies, reports The Chicago Sun Times

He left $210,000 in a bank account that went unclaimed. In response to publication of the states unclaimed property list, a woman came forward to claim the money, but could not prove a relationship. In this case the treasurer's office dug a little deeper and discovered a will. The man left all his money to the Salvation Army.

Lesson to be learned?

State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias said what happened with Naber drives home the point that people need to make sure someone knows their intentions for their assets.
