Home returned to estate of slain Florida Lotto winner

Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Home returned to estate of slain Florida Lotto winner
53
Rating:

A judge has ordered that an expensive home and other assets be returned to the estate of slain Lakeland, Florida, lottery winner Abraham Shakespeare and stripped from the woman convicted of killing him.

In a six-page order, Circuit Judge J. Dale Durrance wrote that there was no evidence Dorice "DeeDee" Moore ever paid Shakespeare for his home on Red Hawk Bend Drive in Lakeland.

Shakespeare paid about $1 million for the Lakeland house when he bought it in 2007.

In addition, the judge ordered that some mortgages also be transferred back to Shakespeare's estate.

Stephen Martin, a Lakeland lawyer representing the estate, has been seek­ing assets on behalf of Shakespeare's two sons.

He received a copy of the judge's decision on Wednesday.

Martin said the Red Hawk Bend Drive home is expected to be sold, and efforts will be made to collect on the mortgages.

Shakespeare won a $17 million lump-sum lottery payment in 2006. He spent, lent or gave away much of his fortune.

Shakespeare disappeared in April 2009. His body was found Jan. 28, 2010, buried underneath a concrete slab behind a Plant City home that Moore had purchased. He had been shot twice in the chest.

In December, a jury found Moore guilty of first-degree murder in Shakespeare's death. She was sentenced to life imprisonment.

(See Woman found guilty of murder in lottery winner's death, Lottery Post, Dec. 11, 2012.)

During the trial, prosecutors argued Moore killed Shakespeare after she took control of his remaining wealth, including his Lakeland home.

      I hope they can find some more assets and the children actually benefit from their father's money.  If they put the money in a trust, the lawyers will have to be the ones to be watched.  A lady who had 8 children won a judgement for about 7 million dollars.  Her children were living in the projects and on welfare.  Apparently, the lawyers ran through the trust money and the children never got to see a dime of the money.  By the time this was brought to a court..the money was gone..stolen by the lawyers as "billable" hours.

      If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

      You never know when you will get another hit.

        Hopefully that will not happen in this case, its too well known and if it did, those lawyers should join dee dee Moore in prison.

        Lets also hope this is the last we hear of this evil woman.

            Well, probably not, if Abraham is aware that TODAY, due to the huge downturn in Florida real estate values [again!] this house he bought for $1M will only appraise for 1/2 of what he paid for it at it's peak value then! 

            Also, now this big house has a negative experience stigma, and a broken front wrought iron gate, that only the most skillful of REALTOR will be able to present the value of.

              This story is a good lesson in why you should not post lottery winners names to the public.  It's hard enough trying to not blow the money yourself let alone have preditors after you too.

              All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

                  Nah they can release your name but YOU as the one in control need to know how to say no and how to handle your money...even the wealthiest person on earth will tell you to watch everybody
