TAMPA - DeeDee Moore continued to scrawl notes at a furious pace Monday, as the prosecution produced more recorded testimony which appears to show she took great pains to keep Lotto winner Abraham Shakespeare's whereabouts and death a secret, even six months after his April 2009 murder.
Greg Smith -- a long-time friend of Shakespeare's who had borrowed some $63,000 from him -- was allegedly paid just a couple hundred bucks by Moore to help her hide his whereabouts from his family. Helping by buying throw-away phones and making a pre-arranged call to Shakespeare's mother.
He and DeeDee can be heard -- in his car -- discussing how much trouble she could get into with this spiraling situation:
"Man, I don't even know, life?" he could be heard asking on the recorded conversation. "But you got to get convicted."
"They won't convict me," DeeDee Moore was heard in reply.
"That's right, baby," agreed Smith. "You got too much on your side. You put too much footwork in."
"I have too many witnesses," said Ms. Moore.
But one witness -- who was wearing a wire as he worked with the defendant on her 'where's Abraham?' excuses -- had even more damaging testimony to share, as he read the letter DeeDee purportedly penned in the voice of the semi-literate jackpot winner to his Mom.
"Dee been trying to get me to go visit you since I left the last time," said Smith, reading from the letter said to be typed by Moore in a Super 8 Motel room off the Interstate in January 2010 and sent to Shakespeare's mother. "She won't help me out with anything any more. I need to get my taxes done and she is the only one with the paperwork."
"I trust Dee, but not with my address," the letter continued. "She would have to tell the cops. She won't even lie for me."
But prosecutors say her lies were just beginning to come unravelled by the time that letter was delivered. And that it was just a short period of time after the messaging ruses were discounted by the Lotto-winner's family as fakes that Shakespeare's body was found on Moore's Plant City property.
Moment-by-moment playback of the surveillance audio will continue Tuesday as every second of every undercover tape needs to be presented in court for the evidence to count.
