Mega Million Winner or Fifteen Minutes of Fame … your guess is as good as mine!
A single Haitian mother of seven living in Westport soon to be Baltimore’s water front properties has claimed to be the winner of Maryland’s largest lottery jackpot. The historical Mega Million lottery winners will split 640 Million 3 ways with each winner taking home approximately $213 million before taxes.
With winners in Chicago and Kansas it remains somewhat of a mystery who really holds the winning ticket in Maryland. But funny thing, according to lottery officials no one has produced a winning ticket in Kansas or Illinois either.
While the drama builds surrounding McDonald’s employee Merlande Wilson states she and a number of co-workers brought tickets in a pool. But somehow she has been able to distinguish the winning lottery ticket separate from that played in the pool. As of yet, no one has seen the winning ticket so all is left to speculation until a tangible ticket is produced.
Even so controversy has begun with employees of McDonald’s claiming fame to the Mega Million bucks. While on the other hand Merlande Wilson says otherwise. So many conflicting stories as Merlande Wilson sends her co-workers on a wild goose chase to find the supossed winning ticket hiden inside of the McDonald’s on Liberty Rd.
A media press conference was held earlier today in which Wilson’s attorney Edward Smith Jr., had this to say: “The purpose of the press conference, is “to ask you to go home.”
According to Wilson’s Lawyer she has suffered from high blood pressure due to stress directly linked to all the media hype and national attention.
