The mystery millionaire of Nineveh is now known after a week of residents double-checking their lottery tickets and wondering who won the
$2 million prize.
The lucky winner: Auto mechanic Michael Sheets won $2 million after purchasing a Powerball ticket from the Nineveh Mini Mart. Sheets picked every number correct for the April 23 drawing except the Powerball; otherwise he would have won $148 million. State and federal taxes amount to about 29 percent of those winnings being withheld, Hoosier Lottery spokeswoman Betsy Gutierrez said.
