The Missouri family that won half of the country’s largest-ever Powerball jackpot on Nov. 28 seemed upright and strait-laced when they posed with an oversized check representing their winnings and told their story to the media – but The ENQUIRER has discovered some shocking secrets about them.

Mark and Cindy Hill, from the tiny town of Dearborn, won a staggering $293,750,000 and will take home about $136.5 million in a lump sum payout after taxes – yet that might not be enough for the already feuding family, say sources. And one of Mark’s sons, 30-year-old Cody, has a shocking past that all the money in the world can’t erase!

“Things could get really messy, really soon,” said a friend.

“It wouldn’t be the first time a windfall has wrecked a family.”

The source explained how instant fame has thrust troubled Cody’s problems full frontal into the limelight.

“The Hills didn’t want anyone to know about Cody’s past, but now that they’ve won a multimillion-dollar jackpot, they’ve suddenly become national news,” said the friend. “He’s far from the model son.”

Winning a lottery is the dream of millions of Americans, but The ENQUIRER reveals in its latest issue why the Hills’ windfall could leave them “wishing everything was back like it was before.”
