.........but never claimed the prize. The winner runs out of time tonight. I wonder what happened? Never knew, lost ticket, died of a heart attack when reading the numbers?

It's probably a seasoned citizen who put the ticket away someplace and forgot to check it.

I bet the ticket fell out of the snowbird's car door while getting gas on their way back to Canada.
