$26 million SuperLotto Plus ticket was destroyed in the laundry, Norwalk store manager says – KTLA May 13, 2021 – Weirdness Wednesdays May 19, 2021

This is a more strange Weirdness Wednesday choice – $26 million SuperLotto Plus ticket was destroyed in the laundry, Norwalk store manager says: https://ktla.com/news/local-news/clock-ticking-on-l-a-county-superlotto-plus-winners-last-day-to-claim-26-million-prize/. Slightly longer article, but here’s a brief synopsis. I rarely play the lottery as the odds of winning tend to be very low.

I feel for the woman who washed the ticket as she lost $26 million in lottery winnings.

The winner had until the end of the day to claim the prize, which was purchased for the Nov. 14, 2020, drawing from the Arco AM-PM at 10602 Imperial Highway.

The store’s manager — who would only give his name as Frank — said surveillance video shows the individual who purchased the ticket, and she’s known to store workers.
