Home of Murdered Lottery Winner Returned to His Estate


Following a ruling that murderer Dorice Moore never paid Abraham Shakespeare for his million-dollar Florida home, the home has been stripped of Moore’s estate and returned to the estate of Shakespeare.

Shakespeare won $17 million from the lottery in 2006.  Afterwards, Moore befriended him to take control of his remaining wealth.  She fatally shot Shakespeare twice and hid his body for nine months under a slab behind her home.

Shakespeare’s Florida home will be sold to benefit his two sons.
