Lotto winner to be named today
Published 06/05/2009, The Daily Republic
The mystery surrounding the winner of a $232.1 million Powerball jackpot will be solved today in Pierre, but some feel the case already has been cracked.
The winner is Arlen Wanless of rural Mission, according to several sources — including one neighbor. Attempts by The Daily Republic to contact Wanless and confirm he truly is the winner failed last week. He has no listed telephone number, and the driveway to his rural Mission ranch was blocked by a barbed-wire fence.
