FBI Was Digging for Fabled Cache of Gold in Pennsylvania Forest, Emails Show

The FBI was digging for a legendary cache of Civil War-era gold in a Pennsylvania forest three years ago this month, according to recently obtained emails. 

In March 2018, FBI agents, led by treasure hunters, trekked to a remote site about 138 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, where legend has it that a gold shipment was lost or hidden during the battle of Gettysburg in 1863, according to the Associated Press.

Since then, the FBI has been mum about why they were digging. The bureau has repeatedly said no gold was uncovered.

The emails were obtained by a father and son who led FBI agents to the state-owned site and have believed the dig did not come up empty. But many documents related to the dig remain sealed, leaving the father and son searching for more clues.

It’s not often that a serial killer and a potential victim’s family agree on something.

But the mother of a California woman who has been missing for 25 years and believed to be a victim of “Speed Freak Killer” Wes Shermantine is urging the FBI to take the suspect’s advice and stop digging for bodies in the wrong spot, News 10 KXTV reports.

Shermantine has been telling the FBI that it’s excavating the wrong area and told agents to look about 200 yards away, News 10 reported

Believing her daughter may have been killed by Shermantine, Sue Kizer wants the FBI to listen to thin

“If Shermantine says they’re in the wrong spot, then they’re in the wrong spot. Everything Shermantine has told us has been the truth. Why all of a sudden is he not telling the truth? He has nothing to gain, nothing to lose,” Kizer told News 10.
