Doug Batchelor got the privilege of being brought up in a wealthy family. He had all the money to buy anything he needed as a teenager.

However, he lacked direction and vision; instead of using the rare opportunity to build his future, he sorts into a different and dangerous life that led him to drugs, fights, and suicidal fantasies.

The mansions and delicious food at home became meaningless to him, and he left home and went to live in the cave and fed from bins. Dough Batchelor Wikipedia page doesn’t exist.
