Description

The Houston Press profiles lottery winner Billie Bob Harrell, who took his life less than two years after winning a $31 million jackpot. Harrell never found Easy Street. Winning the lottery lead Harrell into divorce and financial overextension. He cashed in his half of 10 years worth of lottery payments worth 6 million for $2.25 million -- still five weeks later he took his own life. "Winning the lottery was the worst thing that ever happened to me," he said.
