Late lottery winner's home targeted for expensive items
After a woman was left out of the will of Handy Flemming, a Moultrie man who won more than $7 million in the lottery during the 1990's and items went missing from his home, she's now become the suspect in a burglary case according to the Moultrie Observer.
Officials say Flemming recently passed away and shortly after, more than $21,000 worth of items like lawnmowers, statues and furniture went missing from his home on Highway 111.
Flemming's son told authorities he knew a woman had wanted to pick some items up from the house and was told to wait until one of his children was there, but when the son went to the house he found the yard's fence had been pushed down and the items were gone.
Officials say no charges have been filed at this time but they're investigating the woman as a suspect.
