LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — No one has been charged with the murder of a man who won $30 million in the Florida Lottery, but court documents reveal his life was plagued with bad decisions.
When Abraham Shakespeare cashed in a $30 million Florida Lottery ticket in 2006, the barely literate ex-con posed for a photo with a giant oversized check.
He promised the money wouldn't change him. Three years later, his body was found under a 30-by-30 concrete slab behind a friend's home.
That friend — Dorice "DeeDee" Moore — has been called a "con artist" by police. She's also been charged as an accessory to Shakespeare's killing, but she says she didn't kill him.
