Buried gold in Medfield

MEDFIELD

Dig this: AOL believes a renegade Internet spammer buried gold and platinum on his parents' property in Medfield and wants to bring in bulldozers to search for the treasure and satisfy a $12.8 million judgment it won in federal court.

The family says it knows nothing about any buried treasure and will fight AOL's gold-digging plans, the AP reports today from Washington.

AOL said it intends to search for bars of gold and platinum that the company believes are hidden near the home of Davis Wolfgang Hawke's parents on two acres in Medfield.
