Rags to riches and back to rags


David Edwards in his luxury home

A MAN who went from rags to riches and then back to rags again has died at the age of 58.

Unemployed ex-con David Edwards, who won the $27 million Powerball in 2001, has died in a community hospice care home after losing his mansions, cars, Learjet and moving into a storage shed.

The exact cause of death was not released.
