A 29-year-old mother of two and former bank employee from northern Idaho has claimed the remaining half of a $380 million Mega Millions jackpot, Idaho Lottery officials and others said Wednesday.
Holly Lahti, of the small town of Rathdrum, will split the second-largest lottery jackpot in history with Jim and Carolyn McCullar of Ephrata.
Lahti wasn’t on hand for Wednesday’s announcement in Boise and officials released few details about her, saying she wished to stay out of the spotlight for now.
Public records show Lahti lives in Rathdrum, a town of about 7,000 in the scenic Idaho Panhandle. She had worked since 2007 as a customer service representative at Inland Northwest Bank in nearby Post Falls, but she resigned Monday, said Holly Poquette, the bank’s chief financial officer.
