Detroit man turns in $1M lottery ticket with flour dust
Detroit — A postal worker says he couldn't eat or sleep for three days because of something in a container of flour.
What was keeping him up? A $1 million lottery ticket.
Fred Morgan of Detroit had five winning numbers in the April 17 Mega Millions game. He knew he had won the next day. But he told lottery officials that he stashed the ticket in flour and a few other places while he and his wife considered what to do with the windfall.
Morgan says nobody would "check for anything valuable in the flour." He says he's retiring early after 31 years as a mail carrier.
