What happened to Denne Cruz?

According to the reports, he jumped to his death from a building in Sydney, Australia, on Monday, November 6, 2023, leaving behind his loving wife and three children. It is unclear what led him to take such extreme measures, but some reports suggest his drastic, fatal step was rooted in the traumatic experiences he faced in his early childhood.

According to the reports, he was raised in an abusive household in Kentucky, USA, which led him to leave the house at a very young age. Facing homelessness, shifting from place to place, surviving on school’s breakfast and lunch, lingering at the school building long after the school’s sports activities to utilize the facilities before finding shelter for the night, the school’s officials noticed his homelessness, and he put him into the care of his foster parent, a Christian pastor.

It is believed that the trauma he endured in his early childhood played a significant role in the challenges he faced in his later years until he couldn’t bear the burden anymore and took the extreme step to end his life.
