Who won the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot announced last October?... We may never know!

With less than two months to go, the solitary jackpot winner still has not come forward.

Nearly everyone in Simpsonville, SC (the town where the ticket was sold) has a theory for the city’s billion-dollar mystery:
Maybe the winner was so overwhelmed upon seeing the winning numbers that she or he died on the spot?
Maybe the winner is on the run from police and fears a background check?
Maybe that winning ticket fell from a car visor, ended up in a trash can and is forever buried at the landfill.

Whoever won the 2nd largest lottery in U.S. history has until April 19 to claim their $878 million lump sum.

Otherwise the $1.5 billion will be redistributed to 44 states.
