Body Found During Search for Missing Lotto Winner

Plant City, Fla. (AP) - A Florida sheriff says human remains have been found near a home where investigators were searching for the body of a missing lottery winner.
 
Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said at a news conference Thursday that the medical examiner would have to conclusively determine whether the body was that of 43-year-old Abraham Shakespeare, who has not been seen since April.
 
The remains were found at a home owned by the boyfriend of Dorice Moore. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has previously called Moore a "person of interest," though she has not been charged.
 
Moore has said she doesn't know where Shakespeare is, but Judd has said she transferred more than $1 million from his bank account into hers. She said the money was a gift.
 
Shakespeare won $31 million in 2006.
