The woman in the above booking photo is Holly Lahti. The picture was taken in 2003 and is only coming to light after the Idaho woman won a $190 million lottery jackpot. Although the case against him was eventually dismissed, Lahti apparently received the black eye, cuts and bruises from her then husband beating her.
Now, there are reports that Lahti’s estranged husband may be entitled to half of her lottery winnings. The couple has been estranged for years but never divorced or even legally separated. Unfortunately for Mrs. Lahti, Idaho is a community property state.
Lahti and her two daughters have disappeared from public view since coming forward to claim the lottery jackpot last week. The only comment from Lahti’s husband came from an AP article. When informed of his estranged wife’s winning the lottery, the man exclaimed, “That’s awesome! I won’t have to pay child support!”
What a charmer.
