People who donated money to a disabled beggar were shocked to discover she had almost a million pounds in the bank.
Police said they were surprised when they turned up to investigate the death of Fatima Othman in the Lebanese capital Beirut to uncover the huge cash stash the begged have.
They found she had two bags containing 5 million LBP (£2,457) in cash.
But they were even more surprised when they found a deposit book for a local bank.
When they looked inside realised it contained a further 1.7 billion LBP
(£835,000 ) in savings.
Police spokesman Joseph Musallem said there was nothing suspicious about the death and the 52-year-old simply died of a heart attack.
But he said that the discovery of the cash and the savings book was a big surprise.
Locals who knew the woman, many of whom donated her money and food, said they were also surprised about the amount of cash that she had.
She became a minor celebrity after a snap of a kindhearted Lebanese soldier providing her with a drink and food because she was unable to use her hands or feet was posted online.
After her death, police tracked down her family in the town of Ain Al-Zahab, in Akkar, in northern Lebanon, and they collected her body which has now been buried.
