I realize a previous poster went the dramatic and rather macabre way of the winner being dead. Why can't it be like most hiccups in life...the person bought a slew of them from a self serve machine and the ticket simply got jammed and no one was the wiser. In the mist of it being jammed it was torn so ergo- defective for claim. Thus why NO one has come forward...because NO one can claim it. 

Sorry but I cannot subscribe to the go seen an accountant and blah blah blah. You Get it verified and then til it even gets the check cut to you...you can be working with your tax adviser and financial team...

I reside in the same town as a Pb winner of over 200 million. No death threats ever or any stalking. She claimed it...and preceded with her life. I realize this is contrary to  the whackadoodles who think every claimant of large sums is going to get whacked. 

If it goes unclaimed I say we give it sporadically to the furloughed govt employees...thats a nice way to give back to the community :)

Do you know that pb winner? It is theoretically impossible that she did not receive email and mail and personal approaches from people asking for money and other incidents. There is always a danger with that large a sum of money and anyone who does not take precautions, is reckless and naive. Just because the winner was not killed or stalked,  does not mean the winner is living in a carefree fairyland.

By the way, the furloughed employees are going back to work and will get all their back pay, as always happens. I vote for giving any unclaimed money to homeless shelters, food banks, etc.

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

     Maybe there's a mummified corpse still holding the ticket. The elderly person without children, watched the drawing live, realized they won, & had a massive stroke, or massive heart attack, and died instantly. Who knows? Someone could have died realizing they won the billion dollar jackpot. It's speculation at this moment.

    No Pity!

    All number sets are contenders until the drawing occurs.

      That sounds like it could be a plot for a movie!

      Oh, wait....

            ..then again, perhaps the winner is undaunted by both the public's & lottery officials curiosity. The winner may have passed away or the ticket no longer exists * landfill or victim of the laundry room.If socks can go missing there, why not a lottery ticket?
