Law enforcement wants to speak with Angela Young

The Eagan Police Department wants to speak with Angela Young, who is Dede Evavold’s friend and next-door neighbor, about her possible connection to a social media account which has been investigated by law enforcement for publishing threatening, harassing, and defamatory statements targeting judges, law enforcement, court staff, and journalists.

In multiple court hearings over the last two years, Young has been identified as being currently connected with both Evavold and Grazzini-Rucki. Most recently, Young’s name was mention in court hearings about an Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) granted against three people, including Evavold, for their roles in surreptitiously obtaining and later distributing a photograph of Michael Brodkorb’s wife and minor children online.

Carrie Beaudette, who had an HRO filed against her for distributing the pictures taken of Ms. Brodkorb and her minor children, admitted in court she shared the pictures with both Evavold and Young. Beaudette said she had not told the Eagan Police Department about Young’s involvement when she spoke with them in August about the pictures.

After Beaudette testified about Young’s involvement with the pictures, the Eagan Police Department began making attempts to speak with Young. Despite their efforts, Young has not spoken with law enforcement about her involvement. Continue reading

Dede Evavold ordered to remove all posts about Rucki family, or go to jail

A judge in Dakota County ordered Dede Evavold to “remove ALL blogs/postings, social media postings, or internet postings” about David Rucki, his children, and other members of the Rucki family which violate an Harassment Restraining Order granted by a court in Dakota County in the next eight days or she will go to jail for 30 days.

On Tuesday, Judge Kathleen Gearin found Evavold was in constructive civil contempt of court at an emergency hearing held at Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley, Minnesota.

Evavold was convicted in September 2016 of six felonies for her role in the disappearance of Samantha Rucki and her sister Gianna, who were abducted near their home on Lakeville by their mother Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, during a custody and divorce proceeding.

The emergency court hearing was scheduled after Lisa Elliott, who serves as the attorney for the Rucki family, filed an emergency motion with the court earlier this month which included over 200 pages of exhibits documenting Evavold’s repeated violations of an Harassment Restraining Order (HRO).

Elliott’s exhibits documented nearly 20 posts published on Evavold’s blog which violated the HRO since the last court hearing on December 13, 2017. At the court hearing, Evavold was reminded by Judge Philip Kanning that the HRO granted by Judge Karen Asphaug in July remains in effect.

In a court order released this afternoon, Judge Gearin went further than the posts identified by Elliott by ordering Evavold to “remove ALL blogs/postings, social media postings, or internet postings that refer to the Rucki family as named in the Harassment Restraining Order…”

If Evavold does not remove the posts by March 9, 2018, at 9:00 AM she will go to jail for 30 days. Continue reading

Dede Evavold ordered to remove harassing posts about Rucki family, or she’ll go to jail for 30 days

Dede Evavold was ordered to remove 20 blog posts about David Rucki, his children, and other members of the Rucki family which violate an Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) granted by a court in Dakota County by March 9, or she will go to jail for 30 days.

Judge Kathleen Gearin found Evavold was in constructive civil contempt of court at an emergency hearing held today at Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley, Minnesota.

After finding Evavold in contempt of court, Judge Gearin sentenced Evavold to 30 days in jail for her failure to comply with orders issued in the case.

But Judge Gearin stayed the jail sentence for ten days, allowing Evavold to comply with her order by removing the posts from her blog.

If before March 9, 2018, at 9:00 AM, Evavold has complied with all of the orders issued, she will not have to report to jail in Dakota County.

“You may purge yourself from this contempt,” said Judge Gearing to Evavold.

Judge Gearin went on to remind Evavold that she faces further contempt of court charges if she continues to post about David Rucki, his children, and other members of the Rucki family.
