Ira Curry (pictured) is a name that has been on everyone’s lips these days, but she is gone incognito since she came forward as one of the winners of the $648 million Mega Millions jackpot drawing this week. Curry, who will split the second largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history with a winner from California, reportedly went into hiding after claiming her winnings Wednesday at a lotto headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., according to the New York Daily News.

The 56-year-old Stone Mountain, Ga., resident, who hails from the Bronx, N.Y., will take home about $120 million after taxes. When Curry met with Georgia Lottery Chief Debbie Alford, she reportedly was in “a state of disbelief.”

Curry’s sisters, Jalunda Baker Price and Brenda Baker, have also supposedly left the Bronx, where they had lived for forty years. The sisters, who spoke to The Daily News the day after their sibling’s massive win, told the paper that they were hightailing it away from their apartment in order to steer clear of the hoopla.

The two-story mini-manse where Curry and her husband, Talmer Curry, 74, reside is now dark. Mail is piling up in their mailbox and unopened packages are lying on their stoop. Even though there are two pricey, late-model cars parked in their driveway, it is apparent that no one is home.

Neighbors spoke to The Daily News about the benevolent pair who would open their doors to those in need in the community. One such neighbor, Kaliah Ladler, 18, told the newspaper about a time she and her brother had been locked out of their home and that Talmer took the children in and fed them until their mother arrived.

Revonia Cole, another neighbor of the Curry’s, told The Daily News that Ira once found a stray dog and would not rest until she found its rightful owner.

As to where the benevolent couple has run off to remains a mystery.

Meanwhile, the other California lottery winner has not stepped into the spotlight but has one year to come forward to claim the prize.
