Man dies in train station with $180,000 in briefcase

NEW YORK (AP) - Federal prosecutors want to hold on to $180,000 in cash that was discovered in the luggage of a Boston man who died of a heart attack after getting off an Amtrak train in New York.

William Coyman died in August after collapsing at New York's Pennsylvania Station. He was 75.

In court papers, federal officials say they suspect the retired Teamster was transporting the proceeds of drug trafficking.

Coyman had a criminal history dating back to 1955.

According to one court filing, the money he was transporting was said to belong to another Boston man who was recently released from prison after serving decades for robbing banks and conspiring to traffic cocaine.
