Not Surprising

Ho, here’s something different:

Hill was working as an employee of a local nuclear power plant when he won a $10 million prize from an Ultimate Millions scratch-off ticket at a convenience store near Wilmington in 2017. According to a WECT report from the time, Hill bought a scratch-off that did not win, then, on a whim, bought a second ticket, which was the winner. After state and federal tax withholdings, he took home a lump sum of just over $4.1 million.

And then in 2021?

A North Carolina man who won $10 million on a lottery ticket was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

And now we play “Guess The Perp’s Race”, for the umpteenth time.

That easy, was it?


    1. Another reason to live in TX, TN etc, where there is no state income tax.

    2. I would be. It’s insane.
      There’s a 25% tax on lottery winnings over 1000 Euro here and I thought that was insanely high.

      1. Huh? Is that the Euromillions? Because here in the UK we pay tax on the ticket, not the prize. The government still gets your money but in a less objectionable manner.

  1. One wonders if the guy met a girl half his age AFTER winning the lottery.

    1. I suspect he learned that where there is a sugar daddy, there is nearly always a side man.

    2. The linked story about his initial win mentions and shows his wife. I’m guessing he traded her in for a younger model.

  2. Would have been a far better story if he’d have won a “Cash For Life” lottery.

  3. The commenters at DW are nearly all talking about the amount of money the government clawed back from the prize.
