I realize that, as Shakespeare is no longer missing, technically he isn’t within the provence of this blog anymore. However, I’m always talking about off-topic stuff. It’s my blog. So *phhbt*
So Dee Dee Moore has been charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact. I guess that’s all they can pin on her right now, but she’s not getting out of jail anytime soon. Her bond is set at one million dollars, and she’d have to come up with ten percent of that — $100,000 — in cash before she can be released. And I bet they won’t let her use any of Shakespeare’s money for that purpose.
A quote from this article: Asked if she had been cooperative, prosecutors said Moore has given four different stories about who killed Shakespeare. She has blamed a relative of Shakespeare’s, her 14-year-old son, a drug dealer, and finally herself in an act of self-defense. Ooh, nice one lady, try to send your own kid to jail for murder. She claims he was shot, but so far the cops are only saying he died of “homicidal violence.” Well, duhhh. It also says she tried to find someone who would take the rap for murder in exchange for $50,000.
The woman is clearly a psychopath. She has no regard for anyone but herself.
Psychopath is right and an idiot by the sounds of it “looking for someone to take the rap for $50,000”?. durr, okay then. Jesus. Some people are out of their minds.
I suppose 50k would go pretty far in the prison commissary account, but would probably not last as long as the prisoner’s natural life.
Not a chance!
Geez, only $50,000. I’d have to get at least half a million.
I was thinking the money would go towrd the prison commissary. THey can buy food and other approved items and some people can do time in jail. Weird to think some people can actually tolerate jail.
Her own son? I wonder what kind of mom she was to begin with and what kind of child she raised. Is the kid a law abiding citizen or living a life of crime too?
It’s so sad when we see small children with cancer or other health issues and yet, this…aaahhh “woman” is healthy (physically).
I suppose the money could go to support the prisoner’s family while he’s doing life without parole.
Hey! There is no such thing. He want be sentenced life with a possibility of Parole. Got it?
Of course there’s such a thing as life without parole. People get LWOPed all the time.
Doesn’t Jesus say…judge not, lest ye be judged?
Aye. But Jesus wouldn’t disapprove of people being punished when they committed serious crimes. This woman admits she covered up a homicide, and she’s told god knows how many lies to the police and the media and everyone else.
And stop hijacking my friend Annie’s username.
Interesting last sentence there…
As Meaghan pointed out Jesus also says “and eye for an eye”? Heh.
I talked about this with my friend who’s a minister and she says what Jesus actually meant was that people should be judged in the same way that they judge others. In other words, no hypocrisy. So, if I judge harshly someone who takes advantage of another financially and covers up a homicide, others ought to judge ME harshly if I do any of those things.
Do you know if Dee Dee Moore has a previous criminal record? That she cannot get a passport is the only reason I can think of why she never fled the country to some place where she cannot extradited.
How she thought she could get away with this when he was buried on property managed by her and all the attempts at misdirection to pretend he was alive, which backfired on her is beyond me.
I think she probably did have accomplices and she will sell out everyone she can think of to get a better deal for herself. The state of Florida loves to execute people, so she better make it worth it to the DA. I just hope she didn’t get her 14 year old son involved, though from what I’ve read, that is not beyond her.
Still, if she is convicted of first degree murder, I think there is a strong possibility she will be sentenced to death. The case is too notorious and too many people are going to be ticked off if she just gets a life sentence. This is white on black crime and I think there will be a huge uproar about racism and sexism if he doesn’t, considering the high percentage of black men that are on death row for killing white people and the general reluctance to seek the death penalty for women. The DA will have his career go down the toilet if he doesn’t go for the death penalty now.
Back in the nineties she filed a false report for rape. She said she’d been carjacked and gang-raped. It turned out she made up the story trying to collect on the insurance for her car. I thought that kind of thing was despicable long before I myself was accused of it. A person who will do that, will do anything.
Yeah, but I’ll bet you dollars to doughnuts the one who killed him will get death and her as the con artist/mastermind will get life. It’s at least 50-50. Seems that is how it goes. I’ve seen killers get death and the wife/whatever get “life”, and some vice versa (thank you, Pam Smart). She’ll just keep talking and maybe….what a damn shame for Mr. Shakespeare. Just the wrong people, you know? I’m tired of hearing about the lottery curse but this time, maybe it was true. I don’t think he knew what to do with it and even if he did, he was missing so long and no one cared? What a waste.
Whomever makes the deal first with the prosecutors and gives up the others who were involved usually gets the best deal when it comes time for sentencing. If she’s smart, she will be cutting a deal with them before the others involved beat her to the punch.
I don’t think it was a matter of nobody caring. From the sounds of it, the guy had a lot of people who cared about him. It’s just that
(A) Dee Dee was doing all those things to try to make it look like Shakespeare was still around
(B) Shakespeare was, after all, a grown man and free to go where he pleased. Perhaps his family didn’t think the cops would accept a report earlier — and they might very well not have.
@Meaghan I agree, although I was kind of joking with my comment. I am an Atheist!
I consider myself Irreligious myself.
