A man whose murder charge was sensationally dropped 10 years after his blind cheerleader girlfriend plunged to his death from her balcony has written a bizarre fictional musical about the case.
Jayden Moorea, formerly known as Dan Shearin, was charged in 2019 with the murder of his girlfriend Breeana Robinson, 21, who died in late January 2013 after falling from her 11th floor balcony in Southport, Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast Titans cheerleader’s death was initially ruled a suicide before police investigations reopened in 2017.
Mr. Moorea was charged with murder two years later.
But last week, charges against Mr. Moorea were dropped after prosecutors determined there was no reasonable chance of securing a conviction against him.
And now, in a bizarre case of art imitating life, it has emerged that the former cruise ship singer has written a musical about the ordeal.

“Through the Eyes of Love,” a 100-page musical, follows the title character, West End heartthrob “Jamie Broadway,” who is wrongly accused of being involved in the death of his girlfriend, according to Courier mail.
The fictional musical begins with Jamie Broadway playing the role of Billy Joel in Piano Man – The Musical, with his acting skills being praised by none other than Joel himself and TV host James Corden, both of whom featured in the audience.
Another scene involves Broadway having a threesome with two women before typing their names into a spreadsheet called “Jamie’s Girls”, where they are listed as entries 197 and 198.
Despite his womanly ways, the fictional Jamie later falls in love with a 20-year-old “Breeana Rodwell” and the happy couple move in together.
But things take a turn for the worse when Breeana discovers his spreadsheet listing his sexual conquests and a stash of Viagra.
Furious that his girlfriend had gone through his things, Broadway slammed the bedroom door and stormed out.
It has now emerged that Mr Moorea, a former cruise ship singer, has written a musical dramatizing the tragic death of a 21-year-old blind cheerleader called Breeana, who died after plunging from the balcony of his boyfriend.
The luxury Gold Coast apartment where Ms Robinson died on January 29, 2013 is pictured.
“From afar, Breeana lets out a blood-curdling SCREAM,” the script notes.
The fictional Breeana does not survive the fall and Broadway is implicated in her death, then accused of murder.
At his trial, the prosecutor reveals the Excel spreadsheet listing his “daughters” and Broadway jokes: “I’m on trial for murder.” I’m not a slut.
He is found not guilty and celebrates the verdict on the court steps with a “passionate” kiss with his new love in front of the waiting media.
The musical ends with Broadway and his new lover traveling to the Maldives where he established the “Breana Rodwell” school for the visually impaired.
“As we move backwards, our vision is framed by two circles. As if someone is watching them – through a pair of glasses,” the script concludes.
“As we move backwards, the circles turn into love hearts.”
Miss Robinson’s aunt Janine Mackney said the musical scenario was “disgusting” and “another kick in the guts” for the family after the murder charge was dropped.
Mr Moorea told the Courier Mail it was a “very old copy” of the script, which had originally been written for his own “practice and benefit”.
He said it has since been edited to remove Breeana’s name.
“I certainly didn’t buy it or promote it in any way,” he said.

Miss Robinson’s aunt Janine Mackney (pictured center with Mrs Robinson’s aunt Sharon Rowe, right, and cousin Edyn Mackney, left) said the musical storyline was “disgusting” and “another stunt foot in the guts” for the family after the murder charge was dropped.
Mr Moorea condemned the leak of his musical, insisting it was “unacceptable that Breeana’s family are going through something like this right now”.
“Breeana’s family was devastated. They need to accept the truth of what just happened,” he said.
“They believed for 10 years that one thing (a murder conviction) was going to happen, and now they have to grieve again.”
“I don’t give a damn about myself because I’m pretty strong with everything the media has done to me, but there’s a family involved here. People’s lives, people’s well-being.
Moorea has always maintained his innocence over Ms Robinson’s death and even published a book about the case called The Blame Game, under his former name, Dan Shearin.
In the book, he called Mrs. Robinson Bree and said his first impression when he met her on Facebook was that she was “a stunning blonde girl with the cheekiest smile and her beautiful personality jumped out at me to the eyes”.
He also wrote that when he discovered that Ms. Robinson was legally blind, it “melted my heart like never before.”
