A depressed Essex engineer has been duped of £25k by drug addicts over a period of a year, The Eye Of Media.Com has heard.
Gary Hustwitt says he fell for a young girl who constantly influenced him to by her class A drugs, leaving him in a state of bankruptcy. The man from Hockley Essex fell for a young 31 year old girl who had a £100 a day habit which he supported to keep her with him. Friends say it has destroyed his life after he found out she had secretly been seeing other men.
Alcoholic Hustwitt admits supporting her crack and heroine habit for 8 months because he claims he loved her. The engineer eventually ran out of money, but the girl began to pawn all his belongings to support her craving, something he supported until he had enough. The girl, whose name is being withheld after he received threats from her associates is a pretty girl who takes drugs night and day, and has left him utterly depressed.
Hustwitt told The Eye Of Media.Com: ” I loved her. It is difficult to give up drugs, and sudden withdrawal can actually kill, and I didn’t want her to die. I was trying to protect her interests. I thought she loved me too, but can’t actually believe she has done this to me. I have lost everything, she has pawned by television, my guitar, a lot of my furniture, and even stolen some of my clothes She has completely robbed me of everything I have. She is an evil woman”.
The former engineer admits he did everything he could to even accommodate her friends, buying them drinks and drugs just to keep his girlfriend. ”I have been used and abused, her friends would come and borrow money from me and promise to pay it back but never did. I feel totally exploited. Hustwitt’s home was frequented by the girl and her comrades on almost a daily basis, but she never once financial contributed to his life or repaid any of the money he spent on her back.
His depression got so low, forcing him to depend on his then hospitalised father for financial support, who eventually passed away early this year, increasing his depression and worsening an alcohol condition he once had. Compounding his sorrows is the fact his father’s will put his sister in charge of any money given to him because of past tendencies to manage money poorly. This has worsened his depression, making his condition precarious.
And the normally intelligent engineer’s personality has become more aggressive lately, as he continues to be battered by the frustration of his plight, one he brought on himself by staying with a woman who did not share the undying love he had for her.
His surviving family are unhappy with him, claiming he did not show much respect for his father before his passing. One family friend said: ”he has been a nightmare to the family. His sister had to put posters up in several shops warning them not to give him any drinks. But he would go on the bus and travel far to get alcohol. He was very heartless to his father, and once said I wish you would die”.
A friend of Huswitt who contacted this publication during a research we were conducting of drug addicts said : ”he is on his last legs, he clearly needs help. These girls have sucked the life out of him, and now he has gone into a deep depression. With alcohol involved, there is no turning back for him”.
A team of professionals has been appointed to his case, including a career, researcher, and psychologist who are now attending to him, and trying to restrict his drinking habit. All his former drug friends have been banned from attending his home, whilst he receives special professional help. His sister and her husband have agreed to help him on the condition he co-operates with efforts to curb his drinking and that he eats more. He is making efforts and has made alt of progress. How a man of his professional background could get so low is a wonder, but the worst things can happen to the best of us.
