Seriously I know the guy who won. I work with him and am pretty tight with him. He called me last night and said to tell our boss he wouldnt be in "for a while, probably ever", and laughed. I asked if anything wrong, he said "just the opposite, I have a couple million reasons not to come in". Strangely, his phone is turned off today.

Wow, I am really happy for the winner. I wish him/her the very best and PLEASE be prudent with your money/finances. Self discipline yourself and self educate yourself on personal finance and you will do good in managing your new found wealth. Don't rely on "experts" to manage your money for you, do it yourself and be proactive. Good luck on your sudden wealth!

Winning millions of dollars in the Florida Lottery should have been the best thing that ever happened to Abraham Shakespeare.

But with his newfound wealth in 2006 -$17 million in a lump sum payment - came a string of hangers-on who constantly hit him up for money. Nine months ago, he vanished.

Friends and family hoped he was on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. But on Friday, detectives confirmed that a body buried under a concrete slab in a rural backyard was his.
