Gold in Medfield

MEDFIELD

Gold and platinum bars possibly buried in the yard of a Medfield home? It's a strange tale.

And that's not the half of it. The Globe tells the strange story today of Davis Wolfgang Hawke, the 27-year-old suspected of hiding the treasure at his parents' house.

Hawke handed out neo-Nazi leaflets as a Westwood high school student. Then his reputation among hate groups was ruined when word spread he was Andrew Britt Greenbaum, son of a Jewish father.

The Globe reports today that Hawke reinvented himself as an online spammer, making millions of dollars.

Now AOL has won a $12.8 million judgment against him and believes he may have buried sokme of his spamming profits in his parents' yard.
