Moore, 37, was arrested Feb. 2 by Hillsborough deputies and charged with being an accessory-after-the-fact of first-degree murder.
Krasniqi was interviewed by Hillsborough investigators Friday but officials are not disclosing any information about the interview, according to Debbie Carter, a spokeswoman for the agency.
“He did it on his own,” Carter said when asked why Krasniqi brought in the Corvette.
Krasniqi told The Ledger Monday by e-mail that he was “shocked and sickened to learn about the untimely death of Abraham Shakespeare.”
“Since being notified by authorities working on the case, I have fully cooperated with them,” Krasniqi said. “When it was brought to my attention that there was personal property obtained fraudulently,
I immediately notified law enforcement that I wanted to expedite its return. I have asked law enforcement about returning other items and at this point I am waiting on them to let me know when and what steps to take to giving back the personal property related to the investigation.”
Krasniqi said he could not comment further about his relationship with Moore nor why she listed real estate and companies in his name nor what he knew about money she spent.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in January that Moore created a limited liability corporation in February 2009, giving herself all authority over transactions.
Judd said Moore gave herself $1 million that she told detectives was a gift from Shakespeare. She used the money to purchase a Hummer, the Corvette, a truck and to take vacations.
According to Hillsborough property records, Krasniqi is the owner of the home at 5802 State Road 60 E. in Plant City where Shakespeare’s remains were found.
The previous owner of the house, Richard Land, said Moore purchased the home with a check from an account for Abraham Shakespeare LLC.
Stitzel Law Firm LLC was located at the house when the body was discovered. Howard Stitzel had reportedly represented Shakespeare in a child-support case and helped with paperwork that transferred mortgages held by Shakespeare to a company that Moore owned.
In addition to listing the house in Krasniqi’s name, Moore also had her medical staffing company, American Medical Professionals, listed in his name, Polk sheriff’s officials have said.
A house at 5732 S.R. 60 E., next door to the law firm, was leased by Moore and used by Krasniqi for his company, A Stat And Supplies, LLC. According to state records, Krasniqi is the CEO.
Moore’s arrest affidavit stated Shakespeare was killed in the house used by Krasniqi for his business and then buried behind the two-story house that Stitzel used.
Moore told The Ledger in November that she masterminded a plan to help Shakespeare escape from people bothering him for money and child support problems. The day before her arrest, Moore said she didn’t “pull the trigger” and she is “guilty of covering up his death.” Reliable Ledger sources have said Shakespeare was shot to death.
An arrest affidavit stated Moore tried to pay someone $50,000 to take the blame for Shakespeare’s murder. Records state she also showed a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver to Lakelander Gregory Todd Smith, telling him it was the murder weapon.
