Skunkworks: Lottery Winner Killed in Georgia Home Invasion (people knew he had money)
FITZGERALD, Ga. — A forklift operator who won over $430,000 playing the Georgia lottery was shot and killed during a home invasion, according to police.
Friends and family say Craigory Burch, Jr., 30, was targeted because he won $434,272 in November.
The victim’s girlfriend says a shotgun blew open the door and three masked, armed men ran inside their home.
Hendricks said she is certain the suspects were after some of the money he won. “Ever since he hit the lottery we kept getting calls, text messages, all that, saying, ‘Be careful because people are out for him to rob him,” Hendricks said.
Hendricks said during the home invasion, Burch threw his pants at the suspects. After realizing Burch’s wallet was not in the pants, the suspects shot and killed him seconds before fleeing the home.
