Where does it say he was killed for his money?  It doesn't.

The part that says home invasion. This man Was robbed and then killed.   It is tragic.

    I was saddened to hear of Mr. Burch's home attack, pain, and death. 

    If his girlfriend wasn't involved, I feel sorry for her now probable chronic nightmares, anxieties, and low vibration feelings!

    Wow, I hope that these home invaders and murder(s) are caught and stopped quickly. Thumbs Down

      The rules typically say they can use your likeness to promote the lottery. You can show up in a Nixon mask, but don't expect to be wearing it for the press conference.

      There's nowhere near enough information to be sure what's likely, but looking at the picture (that uses his likeness for promotional purposes) I'm inclined to think it wasn't strangers who found any of the minimal publicity that normally goes with winning a relatively modest sum.

      Just under 2 years ago Floyd,  a lottery winner from this neck of the woods took his press conference pic holding up his cheque from his neck up. My point being- what would be the difference showing up in a Nixon mask given the off chance that some zealous photographer decides to take a pic of you without your permission? Wanna check it out: look under Buxton/ lottery winner. 2014..

          Bad deeds or actions perhaps. But like fairies there is really no such thing as a "bad" person. Ill of mind, poor in social skills, lack of empathy, none of which can inclusively label a human bad. 

          A parent has lost their son... that is a burden no one can label. May justice be swift for the life lost so senselessly.

            If I recall correctly a man in Michigan claimed a jackpot and while he couldn't hide his name, he took the photo with the big check over his face and that is the photo that they published and obviously there wasn't a d@mn thing they could do about it. Pretty genius in my opinion.

              I have updated the story with some more details.  It's heartbreaking.

                What exactly are you basing this on? How he looks in the photo? How about this? He just won a lot of money, had to go public, people who knew who he was were jealous and wanted a piece of the pie. So, they killed him for the money. THAT makes much more sense based on what we know. Saying it could've been a drug deal gone bad is just speculation and it makes you look prejudice.

                May the balls bounce in your favor!

                  there is a lot of talk about claiming anonymously. does that mean the lottery commission doesn't get to know who you are?  I also think that is absurd.  sure in a fair world , the gov has no need to know. but to ensure or at least to try and protect against corruption,. there has to be some checks and balances.

                   

                  im for how it works here, as usual, the gov knows you and the tax office knows you, and the lottery commission  gets to investigate you. and you still remain  unknown to the public.

                    RIP young man. The world feels like a sadder place and I never even met him.

                    I hope the thugs are caught and get what is coming to them!

                        I Agree!

                        Not that any of that goes on around here LOL

                          I'll bet he knew his attackers.

                          He either bragged at work, the others were jealous.

                          Or a drug deal went bad.

                          I have encountered far more white people, rich white people, who either use and deal in drugs than Black people. I know you would not have written the same had the victim been a young Caucasian guy because that would be contrary to your perception of such people.

                          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                            I didn't read the added details until now...that's a crying shame.

                            Forget the fact that he's black....he was a father, had a girlfriend, was someone's son and maybe brother too.

                            We don't know him but they will miss him. He's nothing to us except another lottery story gone bad.

                            The police need to catch the cowards that killed this guy.

                            I don't think your average thug thinks of others at Christmas time. I'm sure he had a good heart.

                              I wrote that I think he knew his attackers, probably from him talking and donating gifts, giving away information that he came into money, OR, a drug deal gone bad. I reread my post, and I am certain I didn't mention black, or white. I too know white people that do drugs, and blacks also. I also know white people that would have nothing to do with drugs, and I know black people that would have nothing to do with drugs.

                              As far as you knowing me, well, fact is you don't know me.
