    Florida Lottery Winner's Friend Charged as Accessory to His Murder

    TAMPA, Fla. —
    A woman who befriended a Florida lottery winner who later went missing was charged Tuesday in connection with his slaying, five days after his body was found buried in her backyard.

    Dorice "DeeDee" Moore, 37, was charged as an accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in the slaying of Abraham Shakespeare, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said. Moore has denied hurting Shakespeare, 43. No one else has been charged.

    "I won't say we have identified all of the players involved," said Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee. "We're going to find out everyone that was involved. We're going to seek justice."

    Moore's arrest is another twist in the monthslong, bizarre case.

    Detectives said Shakespeare was killed on April 6 or 7, 2009, at a home in a rural town east of Tampa. He was buried, officials said, at the home next door, which according to property records, was purchased by Moore and listed in the name of her boyfriend.

    Investigators said in an affidavit released Tuesday that Moore asked an unnamed witness if he knew anyone who was awaiting sentencing to prison and would be willing to take the rap for killing Shakespeare in exchange for $50,000.

    Around the same time a few weeks ago, she told an unnamed witness — it's not clear if it was the same witness — to dig up the body and move it to another location, according to the affidavit. Authorities said she showed the person where the body was buried on Jan. 25 and provided a pickup truck to transport it, along with bleach and plastic sheeting. Police began digging up her backyard the next day.

    Shakespeare was last seen in April, and officials in Polk County — where he lived and was reported missing — have long thought he was slain. Investigators had announced earlier Tuesday that an autopsy showed the Lakeland resident died of "homicidal violence" but would not give specifics.

    In January, Polk officials named Moore a "person of interest" in Shakespeare's disappearance. She befriended him after he claimed the $30 million winning ticket in 2006 and took a $17 million lump sum payment.

    Moore said she wanted to write a book about Shakespeare, but officials said she actually scammed him out of money. Property records show she bought a $1 million home from Shakespeare for $655,000 and she acknowledged moving $2 million of his money into her bank account.

    In an interview Monday with The Tampa Tribune, Moore said she anticipated being arrested. Shakespeare's body was found Thursday buried 5 feet deep under a 30-by-30 foot concrete slab behind the home Moore owns with her boyfriend. Moore told the paper that she ordered it poured for use as a boat and camper skirt.

    However, Moore said she never hurt Shakespeare.

    "I would never take another human's life. No amount of money in the world is worth that," she said.

    After reading the thread title I had to open the thread. Thinking Dee Dee Ramone died some years ago and how the heck was he going to write a book on Shakespeare posthumously?

    Dee Dee Moore's new book
    How I scammed and killed a lottery winner??? :dunno:

    Poor SOB. When Shakespeare first went missing, it was thought that he fled the country to get away from people hounding him for money. I seen an interviewed of his mother and she said her son regreted winning the money, and was constantly harrassed. I was hoping this blue collar, poor, and uneducated guy would have finally gotten the idea to just leave the world he was living in and find a remote tropical beach somewhere far away from that ghetto mess.

    When they interviewed Dee Dee Moore, I had was pretty certain Shakespeare was already dead.
