Sadly, being robbed/murdered is one of those horrifying stigmas that comes along with publicly winning large sums of money.
This young man was only 20 years old and amazingly won almost a half million dollars from the GA lottery! Unbelievable!
Even in today’s strange current events that’s almost unheard of and that kind of cash most likely gained him lots of newfound faux “friends.” A half million will certainly put a hefty target on any person’s back–especially a 20 year old. Honestly, anybody could be responsible for his demise.
Hopefully he had someone help him put the bulk of the money in safe keepings for loved ones. What a sad story. As the old hood saying goes, “Money Breeds Jealousy and Envy.”

A Georgia man who recently won nearly half-a-million dollars in the lottery was gunned down Thursday night in a home invasion robbery.
Craigory Burch, Jr., 20, was found dead at a residence in Fitzgerald, GA.
Burch won $434,272 playing the Georgia Fantasy 5 jackpot in November, 2015, according to 13WMAZ.
Burch told the news outlet after he won:
“My right eye and hand had jumped for the past two weeks, I knew that I would come into money.”
On the night of his murder, CBS News reports that he had begged home invaders not to kill him in front of his family, but the men killed him anyway.
Burch and his girlfriend and others were at a home when a shotgun blast blew open the door and three masked, armed men ran in, the girlfriend, Jasmine Hendricks said.
“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. Please don’t do that bro. Please don’t. I’ll give you my bank card.”
Burch’s girlfriend, Jasmine Hendricks, ran for help.
But when Burch tossed his pants to the robbers, and they could not find his wallet, they shot him dead and then scampered away.
Friends of Burch said that he had recently used some of his winnings to buy Christmas presents for people in need.
One thought on “20-Year-Old Georgia Lottery Winner Murdered”
First of all, when you win lumps of cash get out of the ghetto right now and keep walking. I don’t even tell because when see jerks sees you on television there goes the dolls signs clink in their satan red eyes if death. What that man should have done is to donate a charity through the internet by credit/debit card and don’t be going to some jerks about your future because ‘people’ from the hood just don’t let Satan hold still and murduer is their main employment . What do you think they brag about they love to fight with someone they don’t know and took their hard earn possessions. Homeless people can tell you more than any average 20 year old like that fella did , and he should have known that he comes from the projects and many crimes snd sexually harassments made hoodrats as convicted felons. Why is he going to those hoodrats? They don’t want to be in no decent street. Bit some how I knew a few hoodrats living in Beverly Hills for Christ sake .he should have know that you can’t please nobody. Now he’s dead and the mama might probally set him up in a big but stupid way. Let’s get off with her fake crying. The hood is no kind of place just to win money, remember that good times episode when James took the winning money which he suppose to give it back then a threat note on a black doll told him to keep it but there’s no jealousy. I understand you had to give someone who need but don’t be lecturing too much on a money hungry hound. They just “beg” for what you got,and you don’t dare be beggin on their trash. If you look at my two part video report on getting out of the ghetto after you won yhe lottery, you will understand that you don’t please a ghetto rat for your cheese. Look at my videos on Facebook/Nicoledenise Denise. That will tell you twice to ghet out and fund a five hinted dolls aprtment on buck head .
