Congratulations to Kristen Hoffpauir for taking home a nice chunk of change with Dead Guy In The Envelope brought to you by Southside Honda!

It took two and a half weeks, but somebody finally put all of the clues together, and won the annual Dead Guy In The Envelope contest!

I gotta say, kudos to Kristen for figuring out Alan Turing as the Dead Guy In The Envelope. The clues that were given throughout were pretty vague. She claims that she's known for at least a week that it was a scientist. The final four clues assured her that it was Turing.

Alan Mathison Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist. He was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

Because she figured it out, was caller number 6, knew the correct jackpot amount, and guessed correctly, she's now $1,404.02 richer!
