Everyone dreams of winning the lottery. However, suddenly coming into such a giant sum of money doesn’t necessarily mean smooth sailing. When greedy friends and family members come out of the woodwork, there is no telling how far they will go to get a piece of the money. Just ask Abraham Shakespeare, a Florida man who went from the luckiest guy alive to the star of a sinister mystery.

In 2006, Abraham Shakespeare won the $30 million lottery jackpot. After taxes, Shakespeare ended up with $17 million. Abraham went from rags to riches in an instant, and that’s where the trouble started.
