Hi stranger!!!!! Glad to see you're no longer MIA!!!!!!

 

I for one WOULD take a check from IL.......and RUN all the way to CA with it.

 

I just saw this story on MSN and knew it would be posted here.

 

Just one more reason to keep quiet about your winnings.

Just get me thru this so called life......

      That's really sad especially because he sounded like a nice man.  RIP.

        well that is sad, and i would guess that it was someone in his house that poisoned him.

        I would guess it's the wife.  She was just a liiiiiittle too complimentary about him.  I've learned to be suspicious of complimentary wives.  lol

         

        "Married to Khan for 12 years, she praised him as "extraordinary, nice, kind and lovable."

        He was "the best husband on the entire planet," said Ansari, 32."

          I was born in CA, but that is the last state even after the likes of MS, AR, and AK that I would run to with a bundle of cash and investment accounts! For me it would be AZ, TX, and FL that could expect me to come flying in to roost! AZ gets on the list for taxes and fact I could carry a weapon. TX and FL rank higher though since I like the climate and ease of travel options as well as tax treatment.

          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              This is pretty puzzling. Since he was pretty well off already, there seems to be little incentive for his wife to kill him for a mere $400,000 or so. He easily would have turned that money into millions judging by his financial acumen. 

              Strange as it may seem, he may have felt guilty about breaking his vow and guilty about taking the money which would make more sense that he would end up dead before he collected the money, not after and he would have access to cyanide in his line of work. 

              To kill her husband the day before he was to collect the check would just be ignorant and even an idiot would know that would draw lots of attention. 

              Deeply religious people do strange things, he would not be the first. 

              BTW, Illinois Lottery is privately run and their checks clear just fine.

                Just seen the story on Good Morning America.

                After he died (killed) the money went to his estate and the check was cashed

                one month after he died.

                  I've heard Muslims are not always the kindest to their womenfolk...

                    Yes, in today's world he is considered ultra wealthy.............

                    And thank for the reassurance about Illinois state checks......

                            I think the wife had some role also.

                              I would concurr w/those among U who think he might have committed suicide, having read the entire story.

                              He was a Muslim, and most of them R very deeply devoted to their Religious beliefs and Prophet Mohammad.

                              He might have begun to feel tremendous guilt when the knowledge that he was to receive the winning funds

                              finally sunk in. He had taken that trip and given himself spiritually to God thru prayer and devotion.

                              It might turn out  to be something else, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were suicide.

                              I Agree!
