90-year-old man buried with 300,000 euros, a hoax

It sounds like the stuff of anecdotes and the story went viral, but nobody asked the family if it was true!

The family of a 90-year-old man buried in Ancient Olympia in southern Greece are up in arms after stories of his exhumation made national headlines. Rumors that he had asked his wife, as a dying wish, to be buried with a favorite pillow that unbeknownst to her contained their life savings worth 300,000 euros made the rounds of the press.
