I'd back you on that bet, thought the same thing myself, just not enough evidence yet.

Yep.

    Well, I guess it doesn't matter who killed him...just so they get the money and property straightened out.

    That's priority alright.

    One of them must have done it, why are they getting ANYTHING at all?

    "why are they getting ANYTHING at all?"

    Yeah. If only there was some principle of law that could explain it, huh?

      "In VA, only a person/individual can collect"

      Does this ring a bell? "Corporations are people my friends." I don't see a valid way for  a state lottery to prohibit any legal entity from claiming a prize, as long as that entity is the legal owner of a winning ticket, particularly if the ticket is bought by that legal entity. It is possible that lottery rules limit the purchase of tickets to actual people, but I think there are real problems with that, too.

      Announcing the name of a particular person may be a separate matter, as I noted in my post above.

      Each state lottery can and does legally define what it considers to be a "person." In VA for lottery purposes, they define an individual as a person only. Although the Supreme Court defines a corporation to be a person in terms of some constitutional rights, it is still up to the state to determine how broadly to define the term in a state lottery (and in some other areas).

      Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grace.  We will rebuild!

        Considering that due process applies to corporations I'm skeptical that a state would prevail in court when a corporation can establish that it is the legal entity that purchased and owns a winning ticket if the rules don't restrict the purchase the ticket.  Of course the state is free to make whatever claims they want until a court ruling says otherwise. FTM, VA's attorney general has tried to enforce at least one law even after the supreme court issued a clear ruling  declaring it unconstitutional.

          Trust noone with money; not even your family.  Sad but you'll live longer.  Your kids could be sweethearts and would never do you wrong, but they might not be immune to a spouse's evil influence.  Sad but that's life.  If news gets out you won, make sure to say your lawyer setup your will in a way some  charity will get all your money in the event you die of unnatural causes, no exceptions.  But then you'll get the crafty murderers out of the woodwork.  At least you'll be more difficult to kill. :-)

            R.I.P. Mr. Khan.

            He should have claimed anonymously and opted out of publicity, then maybe he would still be ...

            ... whoops, may not have helped, as most people are murdered by relatives or people they know.

            That is why when I win, I won't care about appearing at press conference. I just got divorced and have changed all my beneficiaries and in process of updating my will (just divorced this week). So no worries about my name being made public but I will do what some of the recent winners have done and conceal part of my face. I won't trust the photographers to respect that wish  so I will wear a mask.

            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is one  MIRACLE I desire for 2019!!!  NOW come to my subconscious mind you 6 winning numbers!US Flag

              I Agree! Something about her story didn't add up.

                Nope, sorry.  When one reads the back of Illinois lottery tickets, states that all prizes winners agree to use of their image/likeness.  So masks are out, unfortunately, for Illinois Lottery Headquarters!  [However, I would still enter Lottery Headquarters wearing my mask and wig and beg to be allowed to leave them on.]

                    who would want him dead the most? why would they want him dead? His last meal would point to the wife! The daughter might have been pissed because of their Relegion, her dad might have been keeping her from going out and dating, Living out the American dream! If they searched the home, and could not find a trace of the poison, maybe it points to someone else in the Family! that's just my 2 cents!!!!!

                    All good questions, only tv drama solve the case, much harder in real life.

                      Who is noone and why should we trust him or her?

                        Money truly conquers all nowadays. It is sad to know that Mr. Khan's family is much busier parting his property than figuring out why he die. No offense but I think nowadays money is much more important than life.
