"Police: Remains buried under driveway are lottery winner By Mallory Simon, CNN
January 29, 2010 3:40 p.m. EST

(CNN) -- Police have identified human remains found buried under recently added concrete at a home in Plant City, Florida, as missing lottery millionaire Abraham Shakespeare, police said Friday.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department said that a cause of death hadn't been determined and that it would probably be Monday before it could say how he was killed.

Deputies made the discovery of remains Thursday after a tip came in, suggesting that investigators would find a body near a home in Plant City, according to CNN affiliate WFTV.

However, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said the investigation and information specifically led authorities to the area after they began to believe that he might be dead because of "sinister means and motives."

"Our indications were it would be there," Gee said Thursday night.

Police scanned the newly finished concrete slabs near the home on Wednesday and removed them. On Thursday, Gee said that they discovered the remains buried 5 feet below the surface and that it appeared they had been there for a while.

Shakespeare, a 43-year-old truck driver, won a $31 million Florida lottery prize in 2006. A year later, he won a court challenge from a fellow trucker who accused Shakespeare of snatching the winning ticket out of his wallet while the two were delivering meat to Miami restaurants.

Shakespeare's family reported him missing November 9, telling the Polk County sheriff's office that they hadn't seen him since April.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said that when his investigation began, authorities had hoped to find Shakespeare alive "and he truly had just wanted to hide from those who were asking him for money."

"As our investigation continued, the information we developed led us to believe he may very well have ended up with an untimely death," Judd said.

Both Judd and Gee would not comment on whether anything else was found inside the man-made grave or whether a previous person of interest was connected to the area. The home, according to WFTV, belongs to the boyfriend of a person of interest in the disappearance of Shakespeare.

Police said they were now shifting their focus to a murder investigation.

"It's painfully obvious he didn't get there by himself," Judd said.

Gee said police from Polk and Hillsborough counties were already working with prosecutors on the case and hope to bring to justice the person responsible for what they say is clearly cold-blooded murder.

"Somebody put that body in that hole," Gee said. "This isn't by any means just where we find someone on the side of the road. Somebody has obviously put him there.""

* Guess this guy won a court battle with a fellow coworker who supposedly had taken his winning lottery ticket.

Sad truth is most people who win the big lotterys, end up broke and picked apart by friends and relatives, who have no quams about taking it. Truth is they all resent you, and think you owe it to them, and somehow make those who won it, believe them.

blues I imagine we shouldn't have to worry about them killing us placing us 6 feet under with concrete on top- you make it seem like for some of them that could be an art. 😯

bluesy can you help clarify what you mean?
You think the I-35 Bridge was built poorly?

jimmy hoffa was the AFL/CIO PRESIDENT "mafia" and disappeared a few decades ago sandra...he is said to be buried in several concrete slabs from new jersey to california and points in between...most of the bridges being used today are in very bad shape..wear tear and bad construction tech and poor maintanace is to blame..I_35 was of poor design because of the plates used in the girders holding them together..they are call gusset plates and take the movement of the roadway strain at the bolts..you have expansion joints in all road construction..if you get to much movement you have problems with the gussets...structual fatigue and down goes the bridge..splash..
bluz
Investigators found 16 fractured gusset plates at eight nodes on the I-35. ... In all, the bridge had 224 gusset plates that connected steel beams at 112 joints
