Jeffrey Dampier 

As money can bring families together, it can also tear them apart. Jeffrey Dampier and his wife won $20 million in the Illinois lottery in 1996 and used the money to buy their extended family houses and founded a gourmet popcorn company. But when going to visit a sister-in-law who claimed she was having car problems, the sister and her boyfriend pulled out a gun, kidnapped Dampier and killed him. (Photo: SCOTT SHAW/The Plain Dealer /Landov)
