Why has the New York Lottery not divulged the identity or any detail
of the recent split $333M winner (not even so far as to say whether
it's a trust or corporation or whatever)?
These are the reasons I've come up with:

A.  There's a dispute between parties as to the ticket's ownership/split.
B.  It's suspected to be stolen since claimant can't confirm time of purchase.
C.  Claimant lost the ticket but can still prove it otherwise (a receipt).
D.  Ticket is damaged, so they are still trying to confirm its veracity.
E.  Homeless bum claimed it but has no ID card to prove his identity.
F.  It's a terrorist on the Homeland Security list.
G.  It was an insider win (related to lottery employee/contractor).
H.  It was won by someone the lottery does not wish to see win (such as
    one of Madoff's sons) so they're exploring everything legally possible
    to deny them the winnings.

It's ironic because CA allows anonymous claims, and yet the winner's name
was revealed (Kevyn Ogawa).  Now this person refused to grant on interview, but
yet the California Lottery revealed their name despite their obvious inclination
to be completely anonymous.  On the other hand, the NY lottery, despite their
rigorously enforced policy of always taking the winner's picture, has revealed
absolutely nothing about the winner.  What gives?

      Why does it matter?  Honestly I think many of us were lucky to win we would for our own reasons want to remain anyonymous. I know i would!!!
