Dee Dee Moore pleads not guilty

In the most recent development in the Abraham Shakespeare murder case, Dee Dee Moore has pleaded not guilty and claims God knows she’s innocent. One article says:

“I have an impetuous notion to let my voice be heard,” she writes, “because there’s got to be a reason for this life-altering trauma happening to me. I inwardly chastises myself for opening up so please don’t criticize me. The picture you paint of me in the news, I would not want to hang around myself.”

The media, she writes, have treated her harshly.

Maybe the this “life-altering trauma” is happening to her is because she is, by her own admission, a liar, and almost certainly a thief and a murderer in the bargain. It’s not as if Dee Dee’s voice hasn’t been heard before; she gave extensive media interviews before her arrest. And no wonder the media has treated her “harshly,” seeing as how she fed them a pack of lies before his body was found, then admitted she’d known its location all along. I think the thing to do that would make her most unhappy now is to cease paying attention to her and to cease printing her garbage in the news. Shakespeare’s brother anticipates more arrests and the police have said as much; it’s unlikely she acted alone.

If Dee Dee is smart — and she doesn’t seem to be — she’ll cop a plea. Florida is a death penalty state and this is the kind of murder the death penalty is designed for: premeditated, calculating, a vulnerable victim (illiterate and naive), and committed for financial gain. Whoever actually pulled the trigger (and maybe it wasn’t Dee Dee) shot Shakespeare in the chest, meaning they had to look at his face when he died. And they shot him twice — hard to explain that away as an accident.

    As I mentioned before, I think the only way she can cut a deal by giving up everyone involved in exchange for life without parole. But I have a suspision that due to her massive credibility problems, the DA might not go for that because he could be unable to get convictions for whomever she names if the cases went to trial because few juries would believe anything she says. All the defense has to to is bring up reasonable doubt.

    I think she has a date with a needle in about 10-15 years.

    If God knows that she’s innocent, I’m sure he’ll inform the jury of this.

      But would that kind of evidence be admissible in court?

      There is a book called Man Who Wanted Seven Wives: The Greenbrier Ghost and the Famous Murder Mystery of 1897 which some claim was the only criminal case where evidence of a ghost was admissible. Not so. What actually happened was the victim’s mom claimed her daughter’s ghost visited her at night and insisted she’d been murdered, and just to shut her up the town authorities exhumed the remains and discovered the girl had, in fact, been murdered. The ghost did not testify and no mention of the ghost was permitted into evidence. The guy got convicted anyway.

    Just a quick note about your main website… If I go to the main website I’m getting an error message that says: “This account has been suspended.
    Either the domain has been overused or payment is due.” I can access the updates page by going to, though, but the main page seems to be having issues. Thought you would want to know!

      It works now.

      I got a payment receipt the other day.

    And there was a movie called “Oh God!” starring George Burns and John Denver, in which God was allowed to testify in court. Nice idea, but I don’t think that will ever happen in real life.

    I’m sure we all agree that Dee Dee is guilty of Abraham’s murder, and that it’s self-evdident she is a liar. If she isn’t guilty as charged, then, as Meaghan says, she sure has an awful lot of ‘splaining to do! Unfortunatly for Dee Dee, she has blown all credibility already.

      I saw that movie. It was really funny.

    this broad deserves the DP! She plotted to take advantage of this man with limited skills , kill him and steal all his money. This is a crazy idea, yes, but criminals are not rocket scientists.

    she needs to shut up because the more she talks the guiltier she looks…

    She has her own episode of Snapped. As I’m watching this, I’m thinking this guy Abraham was too dumb and stupid. I know its terrible to say that but when Dee Dee came along, he was just ripe for the picking, or however you say it. Abraham should’ve surrounded himself with good, decent people who would’ve looked after him. Instead, not only did people (his so-called friends?) come out the woodwork with their hands out but Abraham did what newly rich people make the mistake of doing: buy people and their friendships. Oh well, he’s at peace now.

      I believe Abraham had only a junior high education, which would, in part, account for why he was easily taken advantage of, sadly…
