Absolutely disgusting. On March 29th, Seven thugs were charged with shooting and killing Fitzgerald Burch, a Georgia man who had recently won the lottery. What’s worse, they did it in front of his kids, while he begged for them not to. Burch used the lottery winnings to help those less fortunate according to his girlfriend.
The Daily Mail reported:
Seven people have been charged with the murder of Fitzgerald’s Craigory Burch Jr., who was shot dead in his home in January after winning $434,272 on the Fantasy 5 lottery in November – and more arrests are expected.
According to Springfield News Sun, investigators believe three of the seven charged with his murder broke into his home late at night on January 20, armed with a shotgun and intending to steal his money.
His girlfriend Jasmine Hendricks, who was present at the time, told WALB that the father of three had begged not to be killed in front of her and his children, but was shot dead anyway.
The funny thing, we think we found the social media accounts of a few of those who killed Burch.
Apparently one of those charged with the murder, Earnest Holcomb, 27.
Jesus loves you. It's everybody else that thinks you're an ass.

Pretty sure I know what Jesus thinks about cold-blooded murder.
Another of those apparently charged with the murder, Keyana Dyous, 24.

Murder an innocent person, you’re more than dumb, you’re a scum thug disease.
‘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. Please don’t do that, bro. Please don’t,”‘ she told the station.
He threw his pants to the intruders, she said, but when they failed to find a wallet the masked men shot him and fled.
The suspects were identified as Nathaniel Baker, 28; Keyona Dyous, 24; Earnest Holcomb, 27; Anjavell Johnson, 21, Wayan Jordan, 17; Dabrentis Overstreen, 19; and Rosalyn Swain, 22.
It is not clear which three are thought to have been the intruders, nor how the rest are connected to the killing.
Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore told WALB that the case is ongoing and more arrests were expected.
All seven suspects were charged with malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Jordan will be charged as an adult in the crime, it was reported.
Burch was working as a forklift driver when he won the lottery. He had used some of that money to buy Christmas gifts for the needy, his friends said.
Speaking to WALB shortly after her son’s death, Burch’s mother Leslie Collins had a strong message for her son’s killers.
‘I want them to know what they took from me, she said. ‘They took a part of my life away from me. My child that I carried and raised for 20 years.’
Again, the suspects: Nathaniel Baker, 28; Keyona Dyous, 24; Earnest Holcomb, 27; Anjavell Johnson, 21, Wayan Jordan, 17; Dabrentis Overstreen, 19; and Rosalyn Swain, 22.
Obama’s children, all, no doubt.
