Park, Fla., suspect carnage Nikolas Cruz has received a lot of female — and some male — attention in the form of prison fan mail, according to a report.
Lovestruck groupies from around the country are showering Park, Fla., archer Nikolas Cruz with fan-mail, including sexually provocative photos, and donations, according to a report Wednesday.
An 18-year-old man from Texas apparently confesses her love to Cruz in a March 15 letter decorated with smiley faces and hand-drawn heart of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.
“When I saw your picture on the tv, something attracted me to you,” the letter said. “Your eyes are beautiful and the freckles on your face make you so handsome.”
Young girls, women and even older men are writing to the Park school shooter, and the sending of photos — some suggestive — tucked in a beautiful card… Groupies also a member of Facebook communities to talk about how to help the murderer. https://t.co/sSqKU3ALFL

The communication flatly concludes: “I am very skinny and have 34c size breasts.”
Another Texas woman allegedly sent a bizzare handwritten love letter less than a week after Cruz shot 17 people Feb. 14 at marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“I reserve the right to care about you, Nikolas!” read the unsolicited statement.

PROSECUTORS: NIKOLAS CRUZ, THE BROTHER BRAGGED ABOUT THEIR POPULARITY
A Chicago woman allegedly sent Cruz many suggestive pictures, including one where she eats a Popsicle while wearing a bikini, and another where she shows off her backside for the camera.
Cruz, who prison officials say has received almost $800 in donations, the prison commissioner’s account since the shooting, has also attracted the attention of a number of members of his own sex.
A New Yorker with a bushy moustache sent Cruz a card with a cat and a picture of himself sitting in a white 1992 Nissan convertible, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
At least for now, though, the mass murderer of the suitors are homesick on the wind. The prison officers, who screen all letters to prisoners, said Cruz has not seen the letters, and remains on suicide watch.
“I’m very skinny and have 34c size breasts.”
– Letter to Nikolas Cruz by admirer
As a matter of policy, authorities seize letters obscene material, confidential communication, or a threat to public safety.
“We read a few religious ones to give him an extended wishes for his soul and to come to God,” Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein told the Sun-Sentinel, ” but we have not and will not read him the letters from fans or parts of the pictures of scantily clad young girls.”
Finkelstein added that he “has never seen this many letters to a suspect” in the 40 years as a public defender.

But dozens of fans have also flooded social media, where some have claimed that they have gotten through to Cruz.

“I want you all to know that Nikolas knows us and he had the biggest smile on his face when he was told that we all support him,” a Facebook user wrote on a pro-Cruz group.
When Zachary Cruz, Nikolas’ younger brother, visited Nikolas in prison, the two talked about their popularity, according to the officers of justice.
Zachary’s lawyers are expected to argue in court Thursday that his $500,000 bail on a trespassing cost is too high. The 18-year-old was arrested Mar. 19 after authorities found him skateboarding at marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The unseemly interest in Cruz can be caused by women with a poor relationship with the parents, or a strong desire to save an apparently lonely and vulnerable figure, mental health experts told the newspaper.
