FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - Public visitation was held for a Fitzgerald lottery winner that was murdered during a home invasion. Family and friends gathered at Acree Mortuary Friday night in memory of 20-year-old Craigory Burch Junior.
Burch was shot to death last Thursday morning. He won almost half a million dollars in a lottery prize in November.
"We are just praying for peace, justice to be served," said Pastor Latess Odoms.
Family and friends say they want justice for Burch.
"He is another young life that was taken too soon...senseless..sensless..taken too soon," said Molly Jones.
The funeral is scheduled for family and friends at Holsey Chapel CME Church in Fitzgerald Saturday at 2 p.m.
