Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz swamped with 'perverted' fan mail

Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz gets sent sackfuls of fan mail and sexy photos

Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein, who is representing Cruz, said that the amount of mail was unheard of and is deeply concerning.

Cruz is facing 17 counts of first degree murder.

The Sun Sentinel reports that teenage girls, and some older men, from around the country have been flooding the jail with letters to Cruz. The letters, which range from offers of friendship to obscene photos and propositions, have been delivered to Cruz via the Broward County Jail.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where he allegedly killed 17 people, is seen on a closed circuit television screen during a bond hearing in front of Broward Judge Kim Mollica at the Broward County Courthouse on February 15, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In an a letter stuffed inside an envelope covered in hand-drawn hearts and smiley faces, a teenager wrote, "I'm 18-years-old". "Your eyes are lovely and the freckles on your face make you so handsome", she writes. In my 40 years as public defender, I've never seen this many letters to a defendant. " ... I'm really skinny and have 34C sized breasts". "Everyone now and then gets a few, but nothing like this".

"The letters shake me up because they are written by regular, everyday teenage girls from across the nation", he told the newspaper.

Cruz has not seen the letters himself.

The mail has been opened by jail officials, and Cruz is not permitted to read the mail due to being on suicide watch. Some have sent him suggestive pictures and expressed their attraction to the mass murderer.

News of the fan mail comes just weeks after Cruz's brother, Zachary Cruz, was overheard telling the suspect how popular he is now, especially with the ladies, and was considering starting a fan club for him.

The money in his commissary account (an account inmates use in jail to buy snacks, coffee, toothpaste, etc.) is also growing: fans have contributed around $800 so far. Prosecutors recently announced they intend to seek the death penalty. "We read a few religious ones to him that extended wishes for his soul and to come to God but we have not and will not read him the fan letters or share the photos of scantily-clad teenage girls".
