man who spent the holiday
weekend cleaning his house
discovered a months-old Powerball ticket
that turned out to be a $1 million winner.
Kenneth Morgan, 54, of Jacksonville
, told Florida Lottery
officials that he purchased his ticket for the April
17 Powerball drawing at a Publix Liquor Store in Jacksonville, but the ticket was lost in a drawer.
"I was cleaning the house on July 4th
when I found the Powerball ticket in a drawer," Morgan explained. "I checked the numbers and discovered it was a $1 million winner -- I'm still in shock!"
Morgan's ticket matched all five white balls
in the drawing, with the exception of the Powerball number, which she did not match.
For selling the winning ticket, the Publix Liquor Store received a $1,000 commission
