Maryland Lottery Winner Mirlande Wilson Asks To Be Left Alone
And the Mirlande Wilson Mega Millions mystery lives on.
On Wednesday afternoon the Maryland woman who claimed that she was one of the three winners of the March 30th super $656 million jackpot held a press conference with her new lawyer Edward Smith Jr. in his Baltimore office where he told the reporters in the room to please go away and leave his client alone.
The mother of seven who was enjoying her 15 minutes of fame after telling the world that she was winner was once eager to talk to the tabloids has apparently grown tire of the questioning, the reporters and the cameras.
Via her attorney Miss Wilson said that she wants the group of journalist hanging around her door to vanish, so her and her kids can get back to a normal life.
The 37-year-old Haitian immigrant who has yet to show anyone her winning ticket is embroiled in a messy situation with 15 of her McDonald’s co-workers who claimed that they all participated in a pool and she should therefore split the $105 million with them.
While Mirlande Wilson has changed her story about the whereabouts of the ticket (a friend has it, it at the restaurant, she can not recall where she hid it) – there is one claim she is sticking to – the winning ticket was not part of the pool – it was a quick pick she purchased separately with her own money.
