Ticket Misplaced, Alleged Lottery Winner Says
BALTIMORE (AP) — A woman who has claimed to have Maryland’s winning Mega Millions ticket now says she has misplaced it.
Mirlande Wilson of Baltimore told WRC-TV in Washington on Thursday that the ticket is misplaced.
When asked by WRC if she would claim the jackpot, Wilson replied, “If I find it. I misplaced it.”
Wilson had previously said she hid the ticket at the McDonald’s where she works.
One of three winning tickets for the record-breaking $656 million prize was sold at a 7-Eleven in Milford Mill. The others were sold in Kansas and Illinois. Kansas officials said Friday that the holder of the winning ticket had come forward and were planning a news conference.
