Worker finds ‘secret’ room while renovating home

A WORKER made a very creepy discovery when he stumbled on a secret room while doing some renovations on a Florida home.

The man was sent to the Plant City house to swap an airconditioning system but while he was working, he stumbled across the room which was hidden away in the attic.

He says he found the room after noticing a section of the wall that looked different from the rest and when he pushed on it, the wall opened up to reveal a completely new room.

The man filmed his discovery, clearly weirded out, explaining how he stumbled across the room.

"I found a piece of wall that didn't look the same as the rest," he wrote to Viral Hog, a company that reposted the video on YouTube.

"I pushed on the wall revealing a secret room. Leading to the secret room was a carpeted walkway. When the secret room's door was closed it didn't even look like it was there."

The secret room was decked out with carpeted floors, stained wood walls, air vents, electrical outlets, cable hook-ups and even a makeshift toilet that popped out from the wall.

"Holy sh*t, thats a f***ing toilet, so you can pee. That's crazy. I have never seen anything like this in my life," the man can be heard saying.

The room showed clear signs of use, there were empty pizza boxes on the ground and someone had hung a couple of license plates on the walls.

"There was a very grim feeling about the place," he said.

After the video gained attention online, the worker said someone contacted him and informed him that the house allegedly used to be home to Dee Dee Moore, infamously known as 'The Lottery Killer'.

In 2012, Moore was convicted of killing $38 million lotto winner Abraham Shakespeare by shooting him in the chest and then burying him in the backyard under a slab of cement.

The worker also said that other people later informed him that the license plates that were hanging on the wall belonged to Moore but this claim is yet to be confirmed.

"I'm not sure what the secret room was used for, but if I had to guess, I would guess it was from hiding out from the police," he said.
