The lotto winner’s death reported over the weekend stunned many, as the sudden demise of Amanda Clayton seemed to fit the pattern many believe exists involving lotto winners and subsequent heartache after scoring the big jackpot.

The lotto winner’s death of an apparent drug overdose was noteworthy after many came to know Amanda Clayton following a scandal in which she was outed by local news for continuing to receive food stamps and assistance after scoring a large lottery jackpot in Michigan.
