Stole From His Own Mother
In May 2011, Etta May Urquhart won $51 million – a lot of money by anyone’s standards. It’s always important to remain humble in these situations and make sure you set up a responsible financial plan. However, Etta May hadn’t planned on preparing for the wrath of her own son! Ronnie Lee Orender signed for the ticket on her behalf and went on a binge.
He bought four houses, 10 cars, and a boat instead of putting the money towards caring for the family. They went to court and settled for an undisclosed amount in 2013, but it’s unclear if the family dynamics ever recovered.
