RED BUD, Ill. (AP) – A retired southern Illinois couple has claimed the third and final share of last month’s record $656
million Mega Millions jackpot.

Merle and Patricia Butler are retired analysts and chose to accept the prize as a lump-sum payment of $158 million after taxes.  Holders of the other tickets in Kansas and Maryland anonymously claimed their prizes.

The Butler’s bought a $3 quick-pick ticket at the MotoMart convenience store in Red Bud.
