Remember the Michigan woman who won the lotto and was getting food stamps?
Well, she's dead, apparently by her own hand.....
Mich. lottery winner who kept collecting welfare found dead
A Lincoln Park, Michigan, woman who won $1 million in the Michigan Lottery and was later convicted for still collecting state welfare died Saturday from an apparent drug overdose.
Ecorse Police confirmed Saturday afternoon that Amanda Clayton, of Lincoln Park, was found dead at a residence on Sunnyside Street at 9 a.m.
Shortly after winning the lottery in March, Clayton's story garnered national media attention when she revealed she was still collecting $5,500 from the state in food aid and medical benefits .
Clayton, 25, pleaded no contest to fraud in June and was placed on six months' probation in July.
