Dorice ‘Dee Dee’ Moore convicted of killing $30M lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare

As reported by Mirror, Abraham Shakespeare, 42, was killed, and Dorice ‘Dee Dee’ Moore, 50, was convicted in 2012 of stealing his enormous winnings. Last month, the Florida woman testified in a courtroom in Tampa, saying that her attorney “put on no defense.”

Moore, who was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole, said of him, “He was horrible.” She appeared to be in tears as she complained that the court had ignored DNA evidence that might have cleared her identity. The woman alleged that “there were three DNAs on the carpet [and] that no one understood that during the trial.” She also accused the police of being crooked.

Who is Dorice Dee Dee Moore?

Dorice Dee Dee Moore was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Abraham Shakespeare, a Florida lottery winner. Moore reportedly befriended Shakespeare after he won $30 million in the Florida lottery, and became his financial advisor. In 2009, Shakespeare’s family declared him missing, and in January 2010, his body was found buried under a concrete slab in the backyard of Moore’s home.

Moore claimed there was a tape of a crucial witness who described police misconduct at the hearing last month, but recently learned the witness died. “They’re being paid under the table because cocaine dealers can afford it a lot,” she stated. Moore claimed that key witness Greg Smith was the actual killer, despite the fact that he assisted police with their investigation after recording her admitting to the deaths and subsequent cover-up. She claimed, without providing evidence, that Smith’s wife was having an affair with Shakespeare, providing him with a motive for the murder.

‘The most manipulative person’

Moore became friends with Shakespeare in 2008 after he won the Florida Lottery in 2006. He donated most of his winnings before she took possession of his remaining funds. Shakespeare lost access to his money, which made him suspicious, allegedly leading Moore to kill him. His body was discovered to have been shot twice in the chest, and the cadaver was covered with a concrete slab. During sentencing in 2012, Circuit Judge Emmett Lamar Battles referred to Moore as “the most manipulative person” he had ever met and called the murder “cold,” “calculated,” and “cruel.” Authorities claimed Shakespeare was killed on April 6, 2009, and that Moore made an effort to make it look like he had survived longer.

During the trial, authorities stated that Moore’s assertions about a drug dealer named ‘Ronald’ being involved in the homicide were incorrect and that the person did not exist. Moore filed a motion in 2017 and then revised it in 2019, elaborating on four charges of poor counsel against her lawyer, Byron Hileman, who died in January. She also alleged that her counsel should have prohibited “highly prejudicial” statements from a detective who said she volunteered to perform sex acts for him. Furthermore, prosecutors are said to have permitted witnesses to give misleading testimony. A ruling is scheduled to be issued this month.
