7 arrested in lottery winner murder

| March 29, 2016


FITZGERALD – Seven people were charged Monday in the death of Craigory Burch Jr., a lottery winner who was shot and killed more than two months ago.

The former forklift driver hit the $434,272 instant prize from the Georgia Lottery in November. In January, three masked people stormed Burch’s home on Stubbs Avenue, intent on Burch’s recent lottery winnings. Burch was shot several times and died at the scene.

Six of the seven suspects are in custody in the Ben Hill County Jail. One remaining suspect is in custody in Colquitt County.

Two of the suspects are women, Rosalyn Swain, 22, of Fitzgerald, and Keyona Dyous, 24, of Moultrie.

The others are Earnest Holcomb, 27, of Fitzgerald, Wayan Jordan, 17, of Fitzgerald, Dabrentis Overstreet, 19, of Tifton, Nathaniel Baker, 28, of Moultrie, and Anjavell Johnson, 21, of Tifton.

All are charged with malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of firearm during the commission of the crime. Jordan will be tried as an adult.
