Sandra Grazzini-Rucki becomes enraged during a jailhouse video call after she learns that she has been caught by Missing in Minnesota in a lie about being homeless.
In the 39-minute video recorded on April 9, 2018, while she was in custody at the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida, Grazzini-Rucki is informed by her friend Dennis Campbell that he just spoke with Missing in Minnesota and confirmed he met Grazzini-Rucki “on the beach” in Florida.
Grazzini-Rucki is visibility upset with Campbell’s admission, and she asks him what he said because “now we need to do damage control.”
As previously reported by Missing in Minnesota, Grazzini-Rucki falsely told law enforcement at Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Clearwater, Florida that she was homeless despite living in a nearby waterfront estate community.
In the video, Grazzini-Rucki admits that she and others had been dishonest about whether she was living in Florida and that Campbell has unknowingly confirmed that Grazzini-Rucki was living in Florida.
“Well, we said I wasn’t here,” said Grazzini-Rucki, adding “so now you just told him…you met me someplace I wasn’t.”
Below is the entire video, which contains profanity, that was released by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in response to a request for public data.
According to the owner of the condominium where she has been living, Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease in March 2016 to live at a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida.
Throughout the video, Grazzini-Rucki blamed Campbell for information already confirmed by Missing in Minnesota.
“They had absolutely nothing,” said Grazzini-Rucki.
Grazzini-Rucki continued, “as far as they knew, I was in Georgia or Alabama. You told them I was living in Florida – wow!”
For nearly six years, Grazzini-Rucki has falsely claimed she is homeless and destitute in an attempt to manipulate public opinion and the legal system.
In reality, Grazzini-Rucki had access to over $1 million from her family in the last eight years, and the total amount of her current net worth is unknown.
Grazzini-Rucki’s false claims of homelessness are part of a documented pattern of lies from Grazzini-Rucki, who admitted during her criminal trial that she had repeatedly been “dishonest” in previous court hearings.
