Cruz was adopted, along with his younger brother Zachary, by Lynda and Roger Cruz after the couple moved from Long Island, N.Y., to Broward County. Cruz was described by former classmates as “weird,” “a little off,” and a “loner.” He had been expelled from the high school for “disciplinary reasons” and was also told he couldn’t bring a backpack on campus. School officials said he had been attending another school in Broward County after his expulsion. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/1...ths-leading-up-to-shooting-attorney-says.html Lynda, who died of pneumonia, adopted Nikolas the day he was born. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/b...g/fl-school-shooting-cruz-20180214-story.html Malcolm and Christine Roxburgh were neighbors of the Cruz family for many years. “It was a wonderful idea. Two older people to have two little boys to look after. They were just kind people.” He used to get into trouble and harass neighbors, the Roxburghs said. The police came to Cruz’s house many times, they said. “He didn’t like the pigs and didn’t like the neighbors so he sent over his dog over there to try to attack them,” Malcolm said. (A neighbor across the street kept little pigs as pets.) Christine, Mrs. Roxburgh, said one time she saw Nikolas peeking in her window. Christine said when the boy didn’t want to go to school, he would bang his head against a cement wall. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/b...g/fl-school-shooting-cruz-20180214-story.html Was Nickolas Cruz and his 'brother' the only children in that neighborhood? “I said what are you doing here? He said he was looking for golf balls. I said ‘this isn’t the golf course,’” Christine said.
