There's a longer story with a lot more about the lottery win and fall of his family and community that goes more in-depth, from 2005.


The best advice I ever read if you win the lottery: get an attorney to claim the money on your behalf and don't tell anyone. I had family friends destroy their lives after winning a substantial amount and it's not pretty to watch.
