Report: Parkland Shooter Buried His Liberal Mom With A Trump Hat
The New York Post reported in 2018 that Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz sneaked his red “Make America Great Again” hat into his later mother’s coffin and took a picture.
- The detail was “among a 425-page file from the Broward County, Fla., Sheriff’s Department.”
- Cruz’s friend reportedly told the detective that he pulled the petty stunt against his “liberal, anti-gun-type” mother, Lynda Cruz, because she didn’t support the president. Lynda Cruz died in 2017.
- The friend said: “Due to the fact that his mother hated Donald Trump, he put it in her casket with her when she died and took a picture of her with the hat.”
Cruz, who has registered as a Republican while cooling his heels in prison, fatally gunned down 17 students and faculty inside his alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS, on Feb. 14 .
