Michigan Man Says He’s Owed $25 Million Reward for Tip About Bin Laden’s Whereabouts

A Michigan man claims the FBI owes him $25 million because he provided a tip that led the U.S. to Osama bin Laden, Yahoo news reports.

Tom Lee, 63, of Grand Rapids, said he deserved the reward for bin Laden’s capture because he told authorities in 2003 about the terrorist’s whereabouts.

Yahoo News reported that Lee maintains he pointed the FBI to the same compound where bin Laden was found.

Lee said he got the information from a Pakistani intelligence agent.

But in 2011, the U.S. said bin Laden’s whereabouts were discovered via electronic surveillance, not a tip.
