Lottery Winner Found Slain, Friend Arrested
February 3, 2010
Florida (ChattahBox) – A lottery winner who police previously began to believe had been murdered has been found buried in recently laid concrete in a nearby home, and his ‘friend’ has been arrested.
Dorice Donegan Moore, also known as Dee Dee, was previously posted on this site as having claimed he was in hiding as she managed his finances, his life complicated by his millions in lottery winnings.
“Abraham had a life of drama because of the money,” she originally said in an interview with CNN months ago.
“The money was like a curse to him. And now it has become a curse to me.”
She claimed she was aiding Abraham Shakespeare in writing a book about his life, and made a plea for his return as suspicion fell to her on his disappearance.
Now she has been arrested for conspiracy after the fact, as well as trying to dispose of his body.
It isn’t clear what happened to Abraham.
His body was found in some freshly laid concrete outside of an unnamed home.
He had died on April 6th, or 7th, and Moore allegedly began to cover up the death.
She is believed to have written letters to his family claiming to be the victim, saying he is alright. She also allegedly used his cellphone and texted several members of his family and friends.
She is also charged with purchasing lime to cover the body, and trying to find someone to transport the corpse to another location.
She has denied having anything to do with his death, and at her arrest told reporters she was “deeply saddened for the family.”
