After nearly a month of Fairfield County residents double-, triple- and even quadruple checking their lottery numbers, ripping apart their couch cushions and searching everywhere for a , three Greenwich men stepped forward Monday to reveal themselves as the winners of the $254 million Powerball jackpot drawn on Nov. 2.
Greenwich residents Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson, owners of asset management firm Belpointe LLC, bought the winning ticket at a BP gas station in Stamford, lottery officials announced.
The $254 million jackpot is reportedly the 12th largest in Powerball history.
Skidmore, Lacoff and Davidson have claimed the prize as a lump sum of nearly $104 million in cash, according to reports.
So urgent was the search for the winner (or the winning ticket) during the past month that lottery officials even put up billboards urging the winner to step forward and end the mystery. Similar messages were posted on display screens at 2,700 retailers, according to a Stamford Advocate report.
No word yet on why it for the trio to come forward and claim the prize.
