Lottery Winners

Lottery winner takes a year to claim prize

Peter Dushop could be called a procrastinating millionaire.

Dushop, 24 years old, is a realtor.  Approximately a year ago, he won a $3.6-million Lotto jackpot.  But he waited until Monday – three weeks before the deadline to come forward – to claim his winnings.

“I just really needed some time to think about how this will affect me and the people around me,” Dushop said in a news release.  “I’m still kind of in shock.”

Come on, I know that’s a lot of money, but “still in shock” a year later?
