The New York Post is reporting that the third winning ticket in the record Mega Millions jackpot belongs to McDonald’s employee Mirlande Wilson.Wilson, a single mother of seven, says she bought the ticket independently, while her coworkers say she bought it in a pool with them and must share the prize, reports the Post.
Maryland’s winning ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Baltimore County, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Maryland lottery officials say no one has come forward with the winning ticket.
“We have nothing to substantiate anything,” spokeswoman Carole Everett told FoxNews.com.
Everett also told ABCNews.com that she is “suspicious of Wilson’s story.”
“Based on what has happened in the past, most people need a second to breathe and then seek counseling or advice. It would be highly unusual for someone to go get this out to the newspaper before coming to us. I’d be surprised,” Everett told the station.
The winners in Illinois and Kansas, who each hold a ticket worth about $105 million after taxes, remain anonymous.
