Neighbor that knew Nicholas Cruz the shooter. Prayers go out to all of the families affected by the shooting in parkland. The shooter Nicholas Cruz was my next door Neighbor for several years. Nicholas lost his mother several months ago and his father when he was very young. I tried to give Nicholas a job and help him and I feel disgusted at what he has done and wish I had done a lot more to help him.
He suffered from autism and was put into a special school for disabled kids. He was bullied his entire life and complained that he was constantly treated badly at school. This is no excuse for what he has done but kids must realize that sometimes bullying can lead to horrible consequences and that they can turn a sweet person to do the unthinkable.
Nicholas was living with my ex fiancé Roxanne as she was given guardianship by his mother. Linda left all of her money to Roxanne as well to take care of him. Roxanne instead of taking care of him kicked him out of the house several months ago and provided him with no financial assistance or support of any kind. I even had to bring him to his mothers funeral as he had no money or a ride to get there. I was trying to console the young man and get him legal help so he could recover the money his mother left for him.
So long story short he was bullied and mistreated by strangers and the people who were supposed to love him and take care of him took advantage of him and this was the tragic outcome! I don’t even know how to put into words how awful I feel about this situation and how angry I am mad Roxanne for taking advantage of this young man. I am not faulting her for the shooting but she was his guardian and she abandoned him and left him penniless.
