The state's newest millionaire is a New Milford woman, and the event was predicted by her psychic. Carolyn O’Brien won the $3,000,000 Royale from the Connecticut Lottery and opted to take the lump sum.
O'Brien says she didn't know what to think of the fortune telling years ago, and as she was almost out the door the psychic suddenly grabbed her arm. The psychic saw her with a check in her hand cheering ‘I did it!’
When she picked up the check, O'Brien told the Connecticut Lottery that the pressure is off to pay her kids' college tuitions and the mortgage. As she left, she smiled and shouted, “BEST DAY EVER—I DID IT!”
For selling the winning ticket, AARI Foods Inc. on New Milford Turnpike in New Preston will receive a $30,000 check from the Connecticut Lottery.
