    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.

    PREACH ON. I was thinking the exact same thing. It's so weird. Maybe the stereotyper was trolling? What makes it so bad is that it was the first post after the article.

      Just a month ago, the AJC ran an article on a series of home invasions being perpetrated on wealthy people in Buckhead. Now, just in case you don't know what Buckhead is, it is neighborhood in Atlanta which has touted itself as the wealthiest zip code in GA for many years running. It's one of the least rough neighborhoods one can move to, and there've been a slew of home invasions.

      I said that, to say this, the victim should not be getting any blame for his own death. He could have moved to a better neighborhood and still had a home invasion scenario. They knew he won the money and came to rob him. Period. He could have moved and they would still have come after him regardless.

      Exactly. I Agree!

          Prejudice might have played in the drug deal gone bad claim. I'm pretty sure if drugs were involved it would have been mentioned, pure ignorance!

            Are you serious?? "Either he bragged at work" or "drug deal gone bad".   First of all IF HE DID BRAG at work...that gives no one a reason to try and rob and kill a person!!  Second, a drug deal gone bad?  How about posting the names and addresses of winners gone bad!!! He was an open target because it was posted all over the internet where he lived and how much he won.  I have no idea why you would say a drug deal gone bad!  I have known many people to get robbed because they on money in the lottery.    May he rest in peace and I my prayers go out to his family.

              I'll bet he knew his attackers.

              He either bragged at work, the others were jealous.

              Or a drug deal went bad.

              Why you do NOT want to show your image, your name, your existence IF you win ANY Lotto game. Some States says you MUST have your image and a Winners Story, but I read there is an Amendment (Constitutional) that you can use to keep your privacy, Lawyer UP!  Why?

              THIS!!  Yes, he knew them or they knew about him.  Something tells me there is a 'front story' to this.  Maybe some bad blood earlier in life and this was an action taken to his, "Sorry, but NO" when asked for some "money bro".  Anonymity might have saved him, but this is simply a crime no matter WHAT!  God, people are just animals sometimes.  Maybe, all the time.  And, the amount wasn't enough to simply leave, disappear, but had to sit tight and keep working or maybe he was tied to something else?  Who knows?

              Poke

              Don't be Jealous - Be Glad for someone's Win.  Work on your Karma and it might help you.  And, this guy could have not taken the 'extra $' Lotto offers up to be advertised.  Sick.
