    Craigory Burch Jr., the Fitzgerald forklift driver who won nearly half of a million dollars in the lottery in November, was killed during a home invasion robbery.

    According to WALB News 10 in Albany, Burch, 20, was shot to death overnight Thursday at a home on Stubbs Avenue in Fitzgerald.

    Burch matched all five numbers from the Nov. 29 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $434,272 jackpot. He purchased the winning ticket at H&R Food Mart at 1507 Watson Blvd. in Warner Robins.

    According to the WALB-TV story, Burch was in the home with his girlfriend at the time of the robbery and ran for help. No arrests have been made. GBI agents were at the home overnight collecting evidence, according to WALB.

    After winning the jackpot, Burch said, "I knew that I would come into money," according to a Georgia Lottery news release. "I couldn't believe it at first. I was stunned. I'm still overwhelmed."

    Friends of Burch told WALB that the forklift operator used some of his winnings to buy Christmas presents for people in need.

    THIS is why you should be able to remain anonymous if you win big in the lottery.

    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.

    Something tells me that this dudes lifestyle, not the money, resulted in his demise.

    Half a million isn't chump change, but it's not quit your job money either and it definitely isn't fuck you money.

    As much as I hate humanity, I think winning the lottery would make me miserable, since I'd be paranoid and always looking for creeps who knew my name to do something to either me or my family to try to wheedle money out of me. Temptation would be to build an underground bunker, surrounded by a moat, landmines, and a plague of locusts with ebola.

    Making you reveal your identity is ridiculous.

    When you're a forklift operator, it is.

    Nah. Even in Alabama that money would go quickly. Pay off a house and buy a car and you're back to where you were.
