Dampier won $20 million in the 1996 Illinois lottery. He used the money on his family but also started a popcorn business. He was carrying on an affair with his sister-in-law, Victoria Jackson. Later in 2005, Victoria and her other boyfriend, Nathaniel Jackson (no relation), planned on robbing Dampier. Things got out of hand, and Nathaniel Jackson said to Victoria “Shoot him or I’ll shoot you”. The aftermath wasn’t all that forgiving for Dampier, as he wound up dead.
