After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered fromhis contractemployers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that he died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died withoutmaking a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Itherefore made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare anykin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Depositpaperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$30,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bankand the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it.
