The above might not be their funniest comic, but, uh, it's actually coming more or less true in South Florida, because we don't exactly have an overrun of decent, normal human beings here. 

Arnim Ramdass won a share of a $19 million Florida Lotto with 16 of his co-workers at Miami International Airport. It was kind of a big story, but he never told his wife.  

By the time Donna Campbell, the wife and a former beauty queen, found out he was gone with all the money. She can't pay the mortgage on their Miramar home and according to CBS4 is about to be evicted. 

Authorities can't locate Ramdass. We're not sure if he could face any time in prison, but with a last name like Ramdass it would be a poetic bit of karma. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
