    Almost a month has gone by and I haven't seen any updates about the investigation of this murder. Has anyone?

    "Authorities believe three masked people stormed in the home on Stubbs Avenue in the late hours of Jan. 20, intent on Burch's recent lottery winnings."

    Did these folks think Mr Burch was keeping $430,000+ from lottery in cash in the cookie jar? Sock drawer? Billfold? (Yes, sarc, sorry)

    ETA: Sad, sad, sad. And he leaves behind children and wife/GF.

    Wow. Didn't even know anything was going on with this case much less that they had all 7 of them . Hope they all get the maximum as they took this young man's life. And all he was trying to do was take care of his family.

    Have more than the 7 charged in 2016 been arrested? I hope they all enjoy the $$$ in prison. Oh, wait, they don't get the money?!

    I remember the 2009 murder of lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare in FL. DeeDee Moore, who was convicted of killing Shakespeare, had been posting on WS.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...-7-April-2009-9&highlight=shakespeare+lottery

    I wonder how many lottery winners have been murdered since its inception. There is a blessing in being poor.
