Upper Darby Woman Wins Powerball, Flees Upper Darby

Fox 29 reports:

Lottery officials confirmed Patricia Chandler of Upper Darby won the June 22nd Powerball jackpot of 131.5 million dollars. She opted for a one time 77.4 million dollar payout.

We went to Chandler’s home to get reaction from the areas newest millionaire. She wasn’t home, so we went to neighbors who say that she hasn’t been around for at least a few weeks.

Seveal other news organizations also reported being unable to find Chandler. We’d make a joke about getting the heck out of Upper Darby, but the truth is that big-time lottery winners often run into a heap of misery after getting rich. If Patrcia Chandler made plans to avoid the rush of neighbors and acquaintances asking for a handout, she might’ve been pretty wise.
