A man whose murder charge was sensationally dropped 10 years after his blind cheerleader girlfriend plunged to her death from his balcony, has written a bizarre fictionalised musical about the case.
Jayden Moorea, formerly known as Dan Shearin, was charged in 2019 with murdering his girlfriend Breeana Robinson, 21, who died in late January 2013 after falling from his 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 were no reasonable prospects of securing a conviction against him.
And now, in a bizarre case of art imitating life, it has emerged the former cruise ship singer has penned a musical about the ordeal.

‘Through the Eyes of Love’, a 100-page musical, follows the main character, West End heartthrob ‘Jamie Broadway’, who is wrongly-accused of being involved in his girlfriend’s death, according to The Courier Mail.
The fictional musical begins with Jamie Broadway performing as Billy Joel in Piano Man – The Musical, with his acting talents being lauded by none other than Joel himself and TV host James Corden, who are both in the audience.
Another scene involves Broadway having a threesome with two women before he types their names into a spreadsheet entitled ‘Jamie’s Girls’, where they are entries 197 and 198.
Despite his womanising ways, the fictional Jamie later falls for a 20-year-old ‘Breeana Rodwell’ and the happy couple move in together.
But things sour when Breeana discovers his spreadsheet listing his sexual conquests and a stash of Viagra.
Furious that his girlfriend has been looking through his things, Broadway slams the bedroom door and storms off.
Now it has emerged that Mr Moorea, a former cruise ship singer, has penned a musical featuring the tragic death of a blind cheerleading 21-year-old called Breeana who dies after plunging off her boyfriend’s balcony

‘From a distance, Breeana lets out a BLOOD CURDLING SCREAM,’ the screenplay notes.
The fictional Breeana does not survive the fall and Broadway is implicated in her death, later being charged with murder.
At his trial, the prosecutor reveals the Excel spreadsheet listing his ‘girls’ and Broadway quips: ‘I’m on trial for murder. Not being a slut.’
He is found not guilty and celebrates the verdict on the court steps with a ‘passionate’ kiss with his new love interest in front of the waiting media.
The musical concludes with Broadway and his new lover travelling to the Maldives where he has created the ‘Breana Rodwell school for the vision-impaired.
‘As we pull back, our view becomes framed by two circles. Like someone is watching over them – through a pair of glasses,’ the script concludes.
‘As we pull back further, the circles morph into love hearts.’
Miss Robinson’s aunt, Janine Mackney, said the musical screenplay 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 was originally written for his own ‘practice and benefit’.
He said it had since been changed to remove Breeana’s name.
‘I certainly haven’t been shopping it or promoting it in any way, shape or form,’ he said.

Miss Robinson’s aunt Janine Mackney (pictured centre with Ms Robinson’s aunt Sharon Rowe, right, and cousin Edyn Mackney, left) said the musical screenplay was ‘disgusting’ and ‘another kick in the guts’ for the family after the murder charge was dropped.
Mr Moorea condemned the leaking of his musical, insisting it was ‘not acceptable that Breeana’s family should be put through something like this right now’.
‘Breeana’s family have been devastated. They’ve got to accept the truth of what’s just happened,’ he said.
‘They’ve had 10 years of believing that one thing (a murder conviction) is going to happen, and now they’ve got to grieve all over again.
‘I couldn’t give two s***s about myself because I’m strong enough with everything that the media have done to me, but there’s a family involved here. People’s lives, people’s wellbeing.’
Moorea has always protested his innocence over the death of Ms Robinson and even published a book on the case called The Blame Game, under his previous name, Dan Shearin.
In the book he referred to Ms Robinson as Bree and said his first impression when he came across her on Facebook was that she was ‘a gorgeous blonde girl with the cheekiest smile and her beautiful personality jumped through the computer at me’.
He also wrote that, when he found out Ms Robinson was legally blind, it ‘just melted my heart like never before’.
