Young Lottery Winner Murdered In His Home On Thursday

A young lottery winner has been murdered during a robbery at his home. Craigory Burch Jr, 20, scooped almost half a million dollars in the Georgia state lottery Fatasy5 draw in November.

On Thursday night, armed raiders broke into Burch's home, where he was with his girlfriend and children, WALB reported. The three masked robbers burst into the property and held Burch at gunpoint and demanded his wallet, girlfriend Jasmine Hendricks said.

She told the local station: "When they came in, he said, 'don't do it bro. Don't do it in front of my kids. Please don't do it in front of my kids and old lady'. He said I'll give you my bank card."

Burch is then believed to have thrown his trousers at the gunmen, who rummaged through the pockets looking for his wallet. When they failed to find it, they reportedly shot and killed him before fleeing.

Hendricks then fled and raised an alarm. Police are still hunting the suspect.

Burch scooped the $434,272 (£305,000) jackpot after buying the winning ticket from a petrol station on November 29. His family said he used the money to buy Christmas presents for those in need.

  4. Too bad! Smh
    This is why u must use your God given brain and learn to keep hush when u win such huge amounts! Lay low as u can and not be all over the place!
    He was probably on social media making all the noise he can about it, dumb move! If not, definitely told some of his "friends" who deep down were jealous and didn't mean well and forgetting u can't trust people too much like that! Lastly his so called girlfriend could set that up too! Very sad but the real truth behind his murder will definitely come out. People should learn from this.
