Whatever Happened to Denise Lynn Rutkowski - Bodybuilding Legend Turned Christian Evangelist? (Photos)

*********************************
From
AND
Comes this tragic story of a 
BODYBUILDING LEGEND....
 **********************************
(DENISE RUTKOWSKI in UNDATED PHOTO -Circa 1989)
We briefly met Denise Lynn Rutkowski in
Venice, California in 1999 while working 
on a university project evaluating
California Youth Projects.
***********************************
At the time, she was represented as a 
project "Spiritual Education" volunteer.

She was also represented as a former 
BODYBUILDING
Champion with a long list of 
successes to her credit.
*************************************
However,
in the mid-90's, she abruptly left the
sport and returned to her home in Texas
where she began studies at the 
CALVARY CATHEDRAL INTERNATIONAL
BIBLE COLLEGE in Fort Worth,
with the intent of evangelizing
'The Word of God'.
She had returned to California 
and had several ministries
in process when we met her.
Aside from her striking physical presence,
she was bright and compelling with
a magnetic quality about her, 
making her unforgettable
to those who came into
contact with her.
Later we learned from "spot me bro"
and other media
that Ms. Rutkowski was taking massive
doses of steroids, and had been 
taking them for a number of
years throughout the 1990's.
*******************************
Accordingly, today, the results of these drugs 
have taken their toll, both physically 
and psychologically.
 ********************************
The following photo was taken last year
 after she was arrested on Drug Charges
in Los Angeles. 
Born in 1962, 
Denise Lynn Rutkowski 
is currently in a recovery
 treatment program.
*************************
We wish her complete rehabilitation,
 and hope that she
will once again enjoy measures of
new 'LIFE' successes.
