Major Lotto Winner In Putnam County

Posted by wlpo on March 13, 2010

A man from Hennepin is $20 million richer after buying the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket.  But it doesn’t sound like he’s ready to share the good news with everyone just yet.

          The owner of Hennepin Food Mart, Anton Dzierzynski says he knows who the winner but has been asked not to say who he is.   Some believe the winner is the husband of an area high school teacher.  An announcement is expected Tuesday.

          Tracy Owens with the Illinois Lottery says the winning ticket was sold in Hennepin, but that an official winner has yet to come forward.

          The ticket matched all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing. It’s worth an estimated $20 million.
