Miller wins Publishers Clearning House prize photo from KTVI

For those who don’t believe the Publishers Clearing House prizes are real, there was quite a scene in Moro, Illinois north of St. Louis.

Our sister station KTVI reports Michael Miller answered his door Thursday morning, August 29, 2013 to a crowd of people and cameras from Publishers Clearing House, who were there to tell him he had just become the youngest person ever to win the contest’s $5,000 a week forever prize.

Miller was speechless.  He lost his job last year.  He was living with his mother, who said she makes minimum wage and their family lives paycheck to paycheck.

Miller said first thing he will do with the money is buy a brand new vehicle.
