A woman from Chicago sent Cruz nine photos, including a photos in a bikini, of her cleavage and of her butt as she bent over. A Texas woman commented on his “beautiful” eyes and “handsome” freckles.
Cruz is on suicide watch and is not permitted to receive mail. Jail officials open the mail. Most is routed to Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein, whose office is representing Cruz. Finkelstein told the Sun Sentinel he has never seen so much mail for a defendant in his 40 years as a public defender.
“We read a few religious ones to him that extended wishes for his soul and to come to God,” Finkelstein said, “We have not and will not read him the fan letters or share the photos of scantily-clad teenage girls.”
