Hunt For Lottery Fraudster Continues

Speaking on Monday, Deputy Iowa Attorney General, Thomas H. Miller, stated new information has come to light about the winning lottery ticket at the center of the famous $7.5 million (US) Hot Lotto Mystery.

The mystery began three years ago (Dec. 29, 2010), when a  $7.5 million Hot Lotto ticket was drawn, but remained unclaimed until a New York attorney came forward just before the deadline expired. Lottery officials questioned the authenticity of the claim and it was withdrawn, but the matter has not been dropped, and Iowa Lottery Vice President, Mary Neubauer states, “It’s important that we have systems in place to ensure the Lottery is protected against whatever may have transpired or someone might attempt in the future.”
