I read in the Chicago Tribune today that she was found dead in a friend's house, apparently of a drug overdose.

wow that is really sad. I never understood the huge hoopla about the welfare checks - yeah she didn't need them, BUT she also paid, nearly half a million in taxes on her lottery winnings which is way more taxes than most of us will ever pay. I hate how sad endings to lottery stories though
