In 2006, Shakespeare, a 43-year-old truck driver, hit the jackpot. He won $30 million in the Florida lottery. Cha-ching or curse?
The first sign that his winnings were in fact a curse, was when a fellow truck driver accused him of stealing the winning ticket from his wallet during deliveries to Miami restaurants.
“The money was like a curse to him. And now it’s become a curse to me. God knows I would never take another human being’s life,” Moore told the press in 2010 after his body was discovered behind her ex-boyfriend’s home.
