Google Helps Wife Discover that Husband Hid Lottery Winnings

The Miami Herald reports that a woman is suing her husband and filing for divorce after discovering that he won the lottery and kept it a secret from her. The woman became suspicious after her husband disconnected the phones and television and then finally decided to search Google after she received a postcard addressed to her husband congratulating him on the purchase of a new house. Since her husband was known to gamble, she searched for his name and "lottery" and discovered that he won the $19 million jackpot in June.

Pretty crazy, don't you think? I guess you just can't hide on the Internet any longer. :)
