Powerball winners swear to be trust's only members3 Powerball winners from Conn. swear they are only members of trust set up for prize
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ' Three Connecticut men who claimed a $254 million Powerball prize swore in an affidavit sent to lottery officials that they are the only beneficiaries of a trust set up for the money.
A landlord for the men's Greenwich wealth-management firm claimed one of them told him they were representing a fourth person who didn't want his identity disclosed.
But the affidavit obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information request attests they are the only lifetime beneficiaries. State lottery officials say all their rules were followed.
The affidavit was signed Nov. 29, a day after the men came forward to claim the lump-sum prize of $103.6 million.
Details were reported earlier Tuesday by Hearst Connecticut Newspapers and the Hartford Courant.
