Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    I am like you ridge....inside job......

     

    Even if it was someone wanted by the law I am sure they could find a friend , relative or a patsie somewhere to turn it in.

    Since the problem seems to have been someone turning in the ticket other than the person who brought it, how would getting a friend or relative to turn it in have solved the problem?

      Inside job?  Meaning a lottery retailer was involved or a lottery employee?

      Lottery retailer who stole it, lottery employee, lottery official, someone at the printing company, that's what I'm thinking.

      Someone who couldn't turn it in themselves without getting busted.

      I hope that's all it is and there isn't another grave somewhere.

        Yea, that or someone was cheated out of the ticket and hopefully not with death. They are proceeding so slowly and so cautiously, it makes me think there was a death.

          This is the part that gets me...

          "

          ln December 2011, a 77-year-old New York lawyer Crawford Shawwaited until minutes before a one-year deadline to turn in a winning Hot Lotto ticket. Shaw signed the ticket on behalf of a newly created trust, claiming he was its sole trustee. The ticket was confirmed as valid.

          Shaw later said that he was representing an attorney for a person who purchased the ticket and wished to remain anonymous, and that he did not know the winner's name. He said the trust's proceeds would go to a corporation in Belize, a knowntax haven.

          Lottery officials refused to pay the jackpot until Shaw gave them the names of everyone who had possessed the ticket in the year after it was purchased at a Des Moines gas station. They wanted to know that the ticket had been legally purchased and possessed. Shaw refused and offered to give the jackpot to charity before eventually withdrawing the claim in January 2012, walking away from millions. 

           

          l have NEVER ever heard of a Lawyer walking away from Millions of Dollars especially with a Valid ticket- ever.Something is fishy !!!

            The story is quite complicated, if the winner wants to be annonymous it might be really hard since the lottery state needs to verify the ticket. I wonder why the representative could not give the name of the real winner who purchase the ticket in exchange of claiming the prize. It seems like he's hiding something.
