A woman is suing to halt the payout of the $162M lottery win in Ohio because she says she lost the ticket. Rebecca Jemison turned in the winning ticket and has previous tickets showing she has played the same numbers in the past.

Elecia Battle claims that she lost the ticket, and that she has the rightful claim on the prize. She has not provided any proof that she purchased it or that she played similar numbers in the past. “My ticket was lost. I do recall all the numbers. They are all somehow family related. No one can tell me what I did and did not play. I did it honestly and I have no doubt.” she claims.

Police are now investigating if Battle may have filed a fraudulent police report.
