Lottery Winner Who Was On Food Stamps is Found Dead

It’s not clear how you can win a million dollars in the lottery, yet still collect $200 per month in food stamps.  But that’s what a woman did, which led to an uproar in her home state of Michigan.  Sadly enough, the woman was just found dead in her home.  ABC News tells the story:

A woman who admitted to receiving food stamps after winning $1 million on a Michigan state lotto game show was found dead today.

The circumstances surrounding Amanda Clayton’s death were not immediately released by police, but ABC News’ Detroit affiliate WXYZ-TVreported that sources within the police department said they suspect the woman died of an overdose.

An autopsy is pending on Clayton’s body, which was found at a home in Ecorse, Mich., police said.
