FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (November 30, 2012)--A 52-year-old mechanic from northwest Missouri holds one of the two tickets matching all six numbers in the record $588 million Powerball jackpot, lottery officials said Friday.
A Missouri Lottery news release says Mark S. Hill bought the winning ticket at a gas station in Dearborn, Mo.
Another winning ticket was sold in the Phoenix area, but that ticket holder has not come forward.
Dearborn is a town of about 500 about 40 miles north of Kansas City.
The $587.5 million payout represents the second-largest jackpot in U.S. history.
