Iowa Lottery investigators may not recommend paying out jackpot
An Iowa Lottery spokeswoman says a New York attorney behind the jackpot mystery didn't answer key questions during their meeting Tuesday.
She said Shaw also refused to identify members of Hexam Investments Trust, which would get the proceeds and is being represented by Shaw as its trustee.
Lottery spokeswoman Mary Neubauer said Thursday Crawford Shaw declined to reveal who bought the winning ticket and how he got it. She said Shaw also refused to identify members of Hexam Investments Trust, which would get the proceeds and is being represented by Shaw as its trustee.
Neubauer says the meeting was cordial, but investigators told him they couldn't recommend paying the jackpot worth $7.5 million or more until he answered questions.
She says Shaw did provide a copy of the trust agreement, but it wasn't detailed. She says the Lottery will not make that document public during the investigation into the jackpot, claimed minutes before the one-year expiration.
