Broward Jail Flooded With Fan Mail For Parkland School Shooter

The Broward County jail has been inundated with fan mail and love letters for school shooter Nikolas Cruz.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Teenage girls, older women, and even some old men are sending fan mail and love letters to the 19-year-old school shooter who murdered 17 students and faculty at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School on Feb. 14.

"There's piles of letters," Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein, whose office is representing Nikolas Cruz, told the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

"In my 40 years as public defender, I've never seen this many letters to a defendant. Everyone now and then gets a few, but nothing like this,” Finkelstein said.

Fans of Cruz have also deposited $800 into his jail commissary account for the murderer to use to buy snacks and personal hygiene items, according to the public defender.

“I’m 18-years-old. I’m a senior in high school. When I saw your picture on the television, something attracted me to you,” one teenager wrote to Cruz in a letter reviewed by the Orlando-Sun Sentinel.

The letter was mailed from Texas, according to the Orlando Sun-Sentinel. It was inside an envelope where the writer had drawn hearts and happy faces.

“Your eyes are beautiful and the freckles on your face make you so handsome,” she wrote. “I’m really skinny and have 34C sized breasts.”

Finkelstein told the Orlando Sun-Sentinel that he worried “everyday boys and girls are starting to view him in an elevated way, looking up to his fame and notoriety.”

"The letters shake me up because they are written by regular, everyday teenage girls from across the nation,” he said. “That scares me. It's perverted.”

One woman from Chicago included nine sexually-suggestive photos, including one shot of her cleavage and another of her in a bikini eating a Popsicle and a shot of her butt as she bent over.

“I reserve the right to care about you, Nikolas!” wrote a one woman.

The Orlando Sun-Sentinel reported that not all the letters were from women. One New York man with a bushy gray mustache enclosed a photo of himself in a 1992 Nissan convertible.

Cruz has not seen any of the mail because he is on a suicide watch, according to Finkelstein. Prisoners on suicide watches are locked in bare cells by themselves.

Carole Lieberman, author of a book about groupies of incarcerated killers, told the Orlando Sun-Sentinel that Cruz was a groupie magnet for women who wanted to save him.

“He looks like such a sad and lonely figure,” Lieberman said.

“Women who become pen pals and groupies of killers in prison are those who have had a dysfunctional relationship with their dad that has made them feel unlovable,” she said. “These women have low self-esteem, she said, and “become imbued with the killer’s power.”

His attorney had shared some of the mail with Cruz, but said his client will never see all of it.

“We read a few religious ones to him that extended wishes for his soul and to come to God,” Finkelstein said, “but we have not and will not read him the fan letters or share the photos of scantily-clad teenage girls.”

So concerning. These are very needy and misguided young people who need some assistance. The adults are another story altogether. Perhaps pedophillic tendencies?

I think the names of the senders should be published on the jail's website.

Because of course it is. Just like with Charles Manson, just like with the Boston Bomber. White girls and women treat them like rock stars and send them naked pictures. Just because it's a stereotype that offends you, doesn't mean it's wrong.

Not necessarily race specific though. A commonality in female attraction is an element of danger. Samevreason a woman wants to be in deep with some pistol wielding gangbanger, and is in every hip hop video. There’s the chasing of a dominant monster, and the unwitting willingness to try and tame him.

Apparently, you know nothing about white women at all. In fact, I'd give it 100% you'd know nothing about women period. A comment like this would say you're constant need to criticize whites, cops or anyone who could make you happy, can only mean you've been hated by every female who ever cared about you. I'd also say you're a gay caucasian who hates white women because of this.

@ffangel4u
😂 I'll start from the top. I don't know everything about women, but i partially agree with @Heezels. While women in general do like danger, white women love mass murderers.

Next, i don't criticize all whites or cops. I've consistently said on this site that the vast majority of whites and cops are good people, and in the case of cops, the good ones need to do a better job of publicly calling out the bad ones.

Next, i have plenty of loving, supportive women in my friends and family. As far as i know, none of them hate me.

Last, you can say I'm gay all you want, because there's no way for me to prove to you I'm straight. But my wife would find it highly upsetting if i was gay.

Last last, i assure you that most people on this site can assure you i am definitely not caucasian. I'm 3/4 Black, 1/4 Korean. But for your intents and purposes, I'm an uppity Negro.

My turn. You're a middle aged white woman with one divorce under your belt. You haven't been a civil servant in any capacity (police, military, politics, etc) but you were married to one or your father was one. You like to believe that counts just as much as being one (it doesnt), but that doesn't mean your support isn't appreciated.

How close am i?

I am curious as to whether you are as comfortable with black stereotypes as you are with the one you offered on here about white women loving serial killers? Remember...just because a stereotype offends you, doesn't mean it's wrong. I am going out on a limb here, but I am guessing because you are black, you feel it is okay for YOU to discuss white stereotypes, but for me, being white, this would be a big "no-no." And everyone who thinks you are wrong, does not consider you to be an uppity Negro. YOU said that, not anyone else but you. In no way do you sound like an uppity Negro. You sound like a person who has a chip on his shoulder. How close am I?

@jmfrank
You must be new here. I've been called all versions of uppity on here, ungrateful, etc.

And discuss stereotypes all you want. But also realize you're only offended because it's about whites. Go ahead. Browse the rest of the comment section, and as soon as a comment about someone other than a white person pops up, see if you feel so attacked that you respond to their comment.

Quit crying, and also quit simping because i returned insults at a woman.

You're definitely middle aged at least, saying "mulatto." that's in the same realm as Negro. Not wrong, but most definitely dated.

You also highly identify with your white side, since me saying something about white women fully triggered you. You've never commented like that on anyone else's posts mentioning race, so i imagine blanket statements of white women must be a soft spot for you.

If i offended you, I'm sorry and I'm sending my thoughts and prayers!

Said nothing about white women. However, over 50% of black women experience domestic violence. I'm sure these women have low self-esteem.

@ffangel4u, I'm certain I don't need to say this but, I have found that @Hi_estComnDenomn is nothing but a liar. He continually makes statements that makes himself seem, at least to himself, that he is important. It's probably the only thing he has going in his life and this is the only hey people will communicate with him.

Racist much? Mulatto is black and white. Therefore I am not discriminating against or choosing one race or the other. My name isn't Kaperdick or Hussein Obama. I'm mulatto. It's not old and I'm not sure how you call it dated. Just because the two infamous men I mentioned are embarrassed about their white people which, by the way, the both were raised by.
You couldn't possibly be further than your small mind about triggering me about white women or black women. It's the fact you ASSume you know what you're talking about. You're wrong again in your ASSumptions.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@ffangel4u oh it's definitely dated. the only people I hear saying mulatto are north of 60 years old. don't get offended though! there's nothing wrong with being elderly.

careful of that emotional hair-trigger though. and you used racist wrong.
