Georgia Lottery Winner Murdered During Break-in


A Georgia lottery winner’s luck ran out after he was murdered in a home invasion on Thursday.

Craigory Burch Jr., 20, recently won almost half a million dollars from the Georgia lottery’s Fantasy 5 in November. Two months later, robbers broke into his home and gunned him down.

Jasmine Hendricks, his girlfriend, who was in the house during the break-in, ran for help after the deadly attack, according to WALB.

Threee masked robbers blasted open the door with a shotgun and held Burch at gunpoint, demanding his money and wallet, she 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,'” she told the local station. “He said I’ll give you my bank card.”

Burch then threw his pants to the robbers, who rummaged through the clothes to find his wallet. When the search came up short, the three shot and killed him before fleeing.

Police are still hunting for the killers who targeted the recent lottery winner.
