Michigan couple killed after lottery win

Michigan LotteryMichigan Lottery: Michigan couple killed after lottery win

Rating:

DETROIT, Mich. — Police in Michigan are investigating the stabbing death of a couple, and family members believe they were killed over a winning lottery ticket.

"I just ask that if anybody know anything, just please. Because they didn't deserve this, my daddy helped the community. He would have done anything for anybody. They could just have got the ticket and left them alive," said the victims' daughter Tierra Evans.

Evans believes a winning ticket proved unlucky for her parents William and Brenda.

"The motive was a lottery ticket," she said.

Two weeks ago, Evans said her father hit the lottery and told everyone he was a winner before cashing in the ticket.

"So, it was someone that he knew and he knew them well," Evan said.

"They were a nice couple. I want everybody to know that," said Marcus Jefferson, a family friend.

Family is struggling to comprehend the violence and said that the couple, who were in their 60s, was stabbed to death in their home. Family members also said the victims loved to garden and help in the community.

Phyllis Foster learned the tragedy as she was calling her sister-in-law Brenda a happy mother's day.

"I called to wish her a Happy Mother's day and didn't get an answer on the phone. In the meantime, while I was calling her, someone called me and told me about it," Foster said.

Police say this home is a place where illegal drug deals went down. But the Evans family denied the allegation.

"They were not drug dealers. This is not a drug house," Evans said.

William and Brenda's four daughters are asking the community help turn in a killer saying the murderer maybe someone trying to cash in a winning lottery ticket.

          If enough information is known about the winning ticket, shouldn't be hard to nab the killer(s), as it will be just a matter of time, before this

          ticket will be attempted to be cashed in.

           

          Assuming its over $600, so ID and information about where and when the ticket was purchased will be required. There should be a stupidity award

              Why would the police say that the house was "a place where drug deals went down",if they didn't suspect the couple of dealing drugs?

                The news report said the culprit/s accessed the house through a secret door at the rear of the house and left behind cash, jewelry and a coin collection. The only thing that was taken is the ALLEGED LOTTERY TICKET.

                      Sad but sometime it's best to be hush about it when it comes to money.  More reason for other states to be able to claim anonymous.

                          Detroit Police investigators believe the murders are connected to drugs that  they say were being sold at the home. Sources say William Evans, who is known in  the neighborhood as "Dollar Bill", was involved in the sale of heroin.
