Lottery winner is missing-feared murdered


Abraham Shakespeare, a truck driver's assistant, who lived with his mother, won $30 million in the Florida lottery in 2006. It now appears that his good fortune may have cost his life. According to Associated Press, he vanished months ago and his case is now being investigated as a homicide.

Shakespeare, 43, took a lump-sum payment of $16.9 million instead of annual installments and bought a Nissan Altima, a Rolex from a pawn shop, and a $1 million home in a gated community. He insisted that the money "would not change" him, but it seemed to quickly cause him problems.
