(Fox News) Two years ago, U.S. special forces killed Usama bin Laden. Now, a Michigan man wants his cut.

A gem merchant who claims he tipped off the FBI to bin Laden’s location says he’s entitled to the $25 million reward that was previously offered by the U.S. government, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Tom Lee, 63, of Grand Rapids, says he tipped off the FBI in 2003 that bin Laden was hiding in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, according to a letter sent in August to FBI Director James Comey from the Chicago-based law firm of Loevy & Loevy.
