As this article at the Smoking Gun points out, the woman who claimed to have lost her winning lottery ticket has a few ill-concealed skeletons in her closet--namely a record of repeated arrests going back ten years.
When she went to cops with her tale of the lost lottery ticket, officers asked Dickson how she picked the six winning numbers. A couple of the numbers came from one sons birth date, while another number was her sons age flipped. As for why she picked the winning number 49, Dickson told cops that her "husband turns 49 this year." That came as a surprise to Keith Dickson, himself a dedicated gambler and lottery player. "Im 44," he said. "I turn 45 in February."
