Iceman finders fee settled

The money will go to Erika Simon, 72, who lost her husband and co-finder Helmut in a mountain accident five years ago when he was 67.
The pay-out settled a row which began in 1994, three years after the find, when the Simons spurned a ‘symbolic’ reward of 10 million lire (around 5,200 euros). That was when the couple began fighting for a slice of the multi-million-euro business the Iceman generates.
