Hair Stylist Says She Bought Winning Lotto Ticket Created by kblakeslee on 4/9/2013 3:47:34 PM
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ An Indianapolis hairdresser involved in a lottery dispute with seven of her former co-workers says she has proof the winning ticket wasn't part of a workplace pool.
The Indianapolis Star reports Christina Shaw says the winning numbers for a $9 million Hoosier Lottery jackpot were personal numbers she regularly selected based on the birthdays and ages of her children and grandchildren. Tickets for the hair salon pool were always comprised of ``quick picks'' numbers selected by a computer.
Shaw also contends in court filings that no one at Lou's Creative Styles ever told her that the person buying tickets for the group could not purchase personal tickets at the same location.
A Marion Superior Court judge issued an order in March barring lottery officials from paying the winnings.
