Now, all these years later, another bombshell has dropped.
A plumber says he found money in a wall while he was doing work at the church on Nov. 10, 2021. The news came to light during the radio morning show at 100.3 The Bull.
“It was just unbelievable!” morning show host for the “Morning Bullpen” George Lindsey said. “The things he was telling us that they found in the walls.”
Lindsey was shocked when he listened to viewers Thursday morning, but says this one caller really took the segment over the edge.
“There was a loose toilet in the wall, and we removed the tile,” the caller said. “We went to go remove the toilet, and I moved some insulation away and about 500 envelopes fell out of the wall, and I was like ‘Oh wow!’”
The caller said the envelopes were full of cash and checks.
“I went ahead and contacted the maintenance supervisor that was there, and I turned it all in,” he added.
Lindsey couldn’t believe what he had just heard.
“We were like, ‘What are you talking about?’” Lindsey said. “So, then he relayed to us that in 2014 there was a big story about money being stolen from Lakewood Church that they never recovered.”
