Kelsey Moorhouse is burning with anticipation.

Last week, a mysterious philanthropist began hiding cash around Miramchi in the small town of New Brunswick – on small treasure chests, under the back steps of a church, in parks – and began posting confidential, often horror-movie-themed clues on Facebook.

The search for hidden treasures has largely delighted – if not confused – 17,600 towns in the Canadian Gulf of St. Lawrence, especially after another pandemic winter. Now, Moorehouse and his fellow Treasure Hunters are preparing for the big jackpot: 13 $ 100 bills hidden in 13 locations on Friday.

“Normally, Miramichi is pretty quiet,” Moorehouse said. 37 years old “Panicked” from the horror film but has been A participant interested in hunting with her children aged 4 and 7. “It simply came to our notice then. It’s quite exciting. We don’t have much entertainment. “

When he first saw Facebook Posted that 100 100 was hidden somewhere in town, he thought it would be great to be true. But later that day, a lucky spy unraveled the mystery, found the bill, and pocketed it.

The people of this remote island village in Canada are taking government money to clean up. There is a couple.

Clues are posted almost daily on the Miramichi Mystery Machine Facebook group, which has 4,800 members since last week. This is despite the “caution” not inviting her in the cover photo: “Do not join this group,” it says, with A shady, faceless figure in a dark hood.

Image goes by Roman Dungarvan (Relationship Status: Single). He or she claims to be the “descendant” of the “original Dangarvan.” [sic] Hooper “who has returned to Miramchi” to “correct” the city and its people for the “dark ghostly past” of the family.

The Dangervan Hooper is a 19th-century local ghost story Ryan, a chef, was robbed and killed in a lumber camp near the Dungarvan River. According to a poem, the crew found him “silent, cold and dead” and haunted him at night with a horrible “hooping” or cry.

Clues are in written Facebook posts and videos.

A “Friday the 13th” centers on a horror series. The Roman protagonist gives a hint about the family’s pet: “The dog’s name is Gordon,” it says. The cunning mystery chasers headed for the Gordon’s Wharf on the Miramichi River, where, quite sure, the day’s cash was found.

Another source showed a poster for the 1980s slasher film “Prom Night” starring Jamie Lee Curtis. Amanda Ralph, her 18-year-old daughter, and her partner, Dave, have analyzed the clues and moved on to a possible location: the former Harkins Elementary School. A hint “don’t give up any exercise” proved important.

Rolf told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: “Dave walked over and rolled over a rock which he kicked and made sure it was there.”

Hundreds of people have joined the hunt.

Like Moorehouse, Tim Sutton says he was skeptical, but has since joined several hunts, fine-tuning. His strategy along the way. Sutton, a landscaper, drives; His girlfriend, a horror movie buff, tries to unravel the clues from the passenger seat.

A broad question that has proved difficult to answer: Who is Roman Dungarvan?

There are several theories: He may be local A police officer, a philanthropist, a city councilor or even Sutton himself. She has attracted attention because she has hunted for hidden money after dressing up as a piece of pepperoni pizza on at least one occasion.

(She bought the outfit a few years ago as part of a failed TickTock campaign to pressure McDonald’s to bring back the McPizza.)

Sutton heard Scuttlebat. Asked to comment, he said, “I don’t think I’m Roman Dongarvan.”

“Roman,” anyone Or is he hiding? Hidden treasure hunters, the image of the mystery kibitz.

“Gray hoodie girl. You’re far away, “Roman wrote on Facebook during a hunt.

“Blue hoodie dude. You stop, “went another piece of advice.

The “point” of all this, he or she wrote in another post, “Make friends there!”

So far, this seems to have happened. Local mystery chasers say they have reconnected with old friends and found new ones. The victim has attracted national and international attention; Residents outside the city posted plans to join the big bonanza on Friday.

Friday’s itinerary includes going to local stores and having lunch at the farmer’s market before looking for cash. Among the rules: follow the speed limit, help out-of-town residents and – perhaps tongue-in-cheek? – Do not attend if you have a heart condition.

Moorehouse has joined three hunts so far. Occasionally, the trail gets cold. But this week, he was “looking exactly where he was.”

“If I had gone a little further, I would have gotten it,” he said, but his daughter was calling to him and he was confused.

On Friday, Moorehouse is not taking any chances.
