Real Name: Matthew and Wendy Jameson
Date: November 12, 1995
Location: Fair Oaks, California
Details: After returning home from church on November 12, 1995, Matt and Wendy Jameson of Fair Oaks, California made a shocking discovery in their backyard consisting of large amounts of twenty dollar bills dumped over their fence and scattered over the properties of a few neighbors. After collecting all of the bills, they counted them, which came a total of $6500. They were at first uncertain if they should go to the police or keep it. Eventually, they decided to go to the police and told them about it. Several theories emerged about where it may have came from, including that it was thrown out of an airplane or that it was possibly drug money. California law required them to place an ad in the local newspaper and that the owner had ninety days to claim it. After the ninety day limit passed on March 1, 1996, they kept it.
Extra Notes: The case first aired on the April 26, 1996 episode.
