It’s important to remember that money doesn’t solve life’s problems. In fact, these people’s lives took a turn for the worse after winning the lottery.
- Bud Post – Won $16.2 million in the Pennsylvania lottery. His brother later hired a hitman to kill him and his sixth wife so he could inherit a share of the winnings.
- Willie Hurt – Won $3.1 million in the Michigan lottery. Within two years he was divorced, lost custody of his kids, charged with attempted murder, and strung out on drugs.
