Donna Campbell's husband had the six figures he needed to win a cut of a $19 million Florida lottery jackpot, and now Campbell has six figures she wants from the man she says disappeared without sharing the prize — $300,000.
Campbell is suing her husband, Arnim Ramdass, for half of the $600,000 she claims was his share of a lump-sum payout when he and several coworkers at American Airlines hit the jackpot in June 2007.
She filed the suit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court in early November. Ramdass, however, cannot be found.
Richard Lara, Campbell's lawyer, said that after his client and Ramdass, 51, fought about the lottery ticket, he stopped showing up for work and disappeared.
Campbell, 47, a runner-up at the 1979 Miss Trinidad and Tobago beauty pageant and a former model, started becoming suspicious after the June 20 lottery drawing when she noticed her husband of seven years acting oddly, Lara said.
