Abstract:

It sounded like a fairy tale: A homeless man named Abraham Shakespeare spent his last dollars on a Florida State lottery ticket?and miraculously won $31 million. Unprepared for his newfound fortune, Abraham hired Dorice?Dee Dee? Moore to help manage his winnings and field the numerous requests for loans and assistance that he received. But somehow, Dee Dee was the only one benefitting. When Abraham quietly disappeared from his home in Florida, friends and family grew suspicious?though he could not read or write, his only form of contact was through odd letters and texts. But it wasn?t until investigators began to question Dee Dee about her role in Abraham?s finances that a complicated web of lies?and the desperate lengths to which one woman would go to cover it up?was exposed.
