California lottery winner killed in double murder-suicide in Oklahoma, reports say


A woman who won more than $ 2 million in the California Lottery last year was murdered in Oklahoma along with her 1-year-old daughter, according to multiple reports.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the suspected murders of Tiffani Hill, 31, and her daughter, Leanne. Hill was found dead in Calera, Oklahoma home along with her husband, 42-year-old John Donato, who was reportedly turned the gun on his head after allegedly shooting Hill and his daughter, according to local news.

An FBI spokesman confirmed that the agency is investigating the deaths. The FBI did not release the names of the victims or the cause of death during the ongoing investigation, the spokesman said.


The FBI, rather than local police, is investigating the killings because they occurred on tribal lands. Hill was a registered member of the Choctaw country, the spokesman said.

According to local news sites KXII, Hill won more than $ 2 million in the California Lottery in November 2020, a few months after which he married Donato and moved to Calera.

“Could that provoke this argument? We will never have any way of knowing. But I know there have been some times it has caused conflict between them,” you say lawyer Theresa McGehee, who was formerly representing the Hill family.

McGehee, who did not immediately respond to SFGATE’s request for comment, said the KXII family believes domestic violence is to blame for the killings.
