ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The woman who bought a lottery ticket worth nearly $23 million in Roseau last week has come forward with her brother and niece.

Debbie Kujava said, “I Took em out, took out my cell phone, I’m looking and that was the last ticket I looked at and I was like ‘woooo’ ya know, I can’t believe this!”

Kujava says she stopped at Holiday in Roseau to grab a pop after her shift as a nurse and bought the Lotto America ticket.
