Woman Sues Boyfriend When Vanishes With Their Winning Lottery Ticket
Now this is how you ghost someone. Last fall, Denise Robertson was living with her boyfriend, Maurice Thibeault, in Ontario, Canada. They'd been living together for over two years and always played the lottery together.

But when she got home from work the next day, he was gone. His clothes, his toothbrush, all of his stuff, and his passport were missing. Maurice didn't respond to any of her calls or messages.
It turns out he had bought the ticket that won the $4.9 million jackpot and didn't want to share it with her.
