A copy of this was stored in the Walsh's atticas meant to be a part of the local museum. When Chunk read the story aloud, Mikey was inspired to lead the same treasure hunt, in one last grand hurrah before the Goon Docks were to be signed away to be demolished.
The Goonies later discover his skeleton in the tunnels where he evidently triggered a booby trap that crushed him under a boulder. They identify his corpse from information in his wallet, which also contains a Lou Gehrig baseball card.
They take his candles, dynamite sticks, and the skull-shaped key which the map calls "Copper Bones". Moments later Mikey triggers the same trap that Chester did, but luckily the Goonies are able to escape unharmed.
