LOL, you got all worked up over a simple call-out because you asked a question which made no sense. Then you result to name calling? I can only assume that you are still a young kid, and I only HOPE that you are not an adult.

 

You should really exert all that energy towards reading comprehension.

 

You just made my night, Thanks!  Big Smile

      Very sorry this happened to what looks like two nice elderly people.

       

      Condolences to the family.

      What good would a signed lottery ticket be to anybody other than the person who signed it.

       

      Nothing else was stolen, so the news articles say.

       

      Just don't think they were into dealing drugs after reading other news stories. Think the News Reporters could have done a better job about "what was" and "what happened".

        Dangerous & stupid thugs don't think things through like that. That's what makes them dangerous.

            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.

            Thanks to w794728 for the tip.

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

            and

            "Police say this home is a place where illegal drug deals went down."

            It doesn't look like he was waiting to consult financial advisers before he cashed the ticket. If there was a ticket, it's useless to the murderer.

              Sure hope he signed the ticket before running around yelling he won $10m to his drug dealing homeboys in the hood.

                "For the LOVE of money is the root of all evil"...money isn't evil in any shape or form.

                 

                I hate stories like this...where someone, or, some people take what others have gained and come by honestly. Theives have been around since the beginning of time, and, doing the exact same thing as what these culprits did...KILL, STEAL, and DESTROY. 

                However, as sad as it really is, the absolute most important point and fact simply cannot be ignored. If this nice gentleman had just kept quiet about the whole deal, they'd both be still around right now. Someone heard about it, got jealous, got evil, then got busy planning.

                It's happening somewhere else at this very moment...and will make the news tomorrow. Pretty sad that this falls under standard news headlines almost. I really hate it for the remaining family.

                    This is why I would gather my immediate family if I won the ticket and move out of town ad live in a hotel for awhile before I cashed the ticket.

                    Making dreams on a 1-175 million chance...

                      Mr & Mrs. Evans, may you forever rest in peace.  May your family  recover from this terrible tragedy in minimal time. May the Police do their job without fail. But most of all, may they find the perpetrators and punish them severely. I am truly sorry for your loss. 

                      Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

                          i wonder how much money is worth killing over?

                          For the likes of Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, and verified world villains and murderers who have deliberately taken another human being's life, my choice of answer would be: "even ZERO money  would be worth killing over".

                          For the balance of humans, my choice of answer is: "ABSOLUTELY NO AMOUNT OF MONEY WOULD BE WORTH KILLING OVER".

                          The questions remains a bit nebulous because many a times, money is inconspicuously buried along with many other states, in the total person that is killed. i.e Hitler killed many, publicly for their race, and more subtly to take away their possessions including money.

                            He might have had a winning ticket but no one said it won a jackpot.  My neighbor once showed me a winning lottery ticket that was too big to cash in at the retailer but being a wheel/dealer type he probably had stuff in his home worth more than that winning ticket.  I know if it had been a jackpot winner, he wouldn't had showed it to anyone but his lawyer and maybe a few family members before cashing it.

                              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?

                              First off, my sincere condolences to the family.  Just because it's in a news story doesn't mean it's true.  I do know from personal experience that the police will put a fake story out there to keep the integrity of the investigation.  They do that so that the criminals don't know what they have on them.
