Woman Says $26 Million Lottery Ticket Destroyed In Laundry

The winner of a $26 million lottery prize in California may have literally washed the chance of the jackpot down the drain. The winning SuperLotto Plus ticket for the November 14 drawing was sold at a convenience store in Norwalk. Thursday was the last day to redeem it.  Nobody did. But a store employee told KTLA-TV that a woman came in and said she had put the ticket in her pants and it was destroyed in the washing machine. A copy of the surveillance video of the person who bought the ticket has been turned over to California Lottery officials.  The claim will be investigated and there’s still a chance the money could be awarded. What’s the craziest or most expensive thing you’ve accidentally sent through the wash?
