Suspected Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz may never see a hefty inheritance from his dead parents, court records show…
If the Broward County Public Defender’s Office has its way, everything 19-year-old Cruz gets will go to paying off his court battle. The office on Tuesday asked a judge to determine if the alleged mass killer is eligible for taxpayer-funded legal help even if he has the assets to afford a private attorney.
A 17th Judicial Circuit court filing states Cruz “may be a beneficiary” for his mother, Lynda Cruz, 68, who died of pneumonia in November 2017.
The teen told a family caring for him after his mother’s death he would have access to an $800,000 trust fund when he turned 22, the family’s attorney told the Miami Herald.
