$20,000 Found Hidden in Estate Sale Furniture

RICHLAND, Wash.- A worker at a furniture liquidation business found bundles of cash hidden in the back of an armoire.

The owners of the company, Liz and Mark Thompson of ET Estate Sales & Liquidation, traced the furniture to an estate sale and were able to return $20,000 to the family of the owner.

The Tri-City Herald reports the money belongs to Ron Davidson's sister, a 78-year-old widow he does not want to name. She lost her husband to cancer in February and has moved into an assisted- living home in the Tri-Cities.

Davidson says with her medical bills and stress, the cash is a blessing. Davidson says her husband stashed the money years ago because he distrusted the banking system.
