Allison Mann targeted with harassing and sexually obscene messages

A supporter of Dede Evavold, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, and Michelle MacDonald was contacted by law enforcement after targeting Allison Mann in recent days with harassing and sexually obscene messages.

Michael Volpe, a self-described “investigative journalist” based in Chicago, Illinois, was contacted by the Lakeville Police Department after Mann reported Volpe’s repeated, unwanted, and harassing communications.

Despite being instructed by Mann to cease all contact, Volpe continues to contact Mann with unwanted and harassing messages. In one email, Volpe admitted he was “harassing” Mann and requested to “make a deal” about Grazzini-Rucki.

Volpe has previously disseminated propaganda for Evavold, Grazzini-Rucki, and MacDonald masquerading as news. Many of Volpe’s stories published about Grazzini-Rucki have been retracted or corrected after being published due to factual inaccuracies contained in the stories.

Last December, Volpe participated in an interview with Grazzini-Rucki where she claimed a federal agent with the United States Marshals Service, posing as a plumber, had placed her in protective custody and she was living in a safe house in an undisclosed location.

Grazzini-Rucki was not in protective custody, but rather she was living in a waterfront estate community in FloridaContinue reading

Judge dismisses harassment order filed against Brodkorb

A judge in Pinellas County, Florida this morning dismissed the harassment order filed by Sandra Grazzini-Rucki against Michael Brodkorb.

The Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Stalking which was served on Brodkorb in October was dismissed at a court hearing earlier today in Clearwater, Florida by Judge Christopher LaBruzzo. Grazzini-Rucki first alleged Brodkorb was harassing her in Florida just one hour after Brodkorb appeared on the radio in Minnesota with his writing partner, Allison Mann, to announce the release of their new book, The Girls Are Gone.

Brodkorb has never been to Florida, nor did he travel to Florida for the hearing. His attorney, Marie Sartiano Schoeb, filed a motion to dismiss the harassment order and argued today in court that Florida lacked “personal jurisdiction” over Brodkorb and therefore the harassment order should be dismissed.

The court agreed and the Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Stalking was dismissed. Grazzini-Rucki now resides in Clearwater, Florida and she attended today’s hearing. Brodkorb was in Minnesota and would have testified over the phone if required by the court. But the court did not need any testimony from Brodkorb to dismiss the harassment order filed by Grazzini-Rucki.

Brodkorb said today he was happy the harassment order was dismissed. “I’ve never harassed Ms. Grazzini-Rucki in any state and I’m glad the court dismissed her latest efforts to silence the media,” said Brodkorb. “I want to thank my attorney, Ms. Schoeb, for her legal analysis and counsel,” added Brodkorb.

Ms. Sartiano Schoeb is a partner at the Law Offices of Morrison & Schoeb in Tampa, Florida. Continue reading

Grazzini-Rucki files another fraudulent harassment restraining order

Weeks before the release of a new book about her role in the disappearance of her daughters, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki has filed another fraudulent harassment order against one of the book’s authors, Michael Brodkorb.

Earlier today, the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office served a Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Stalking on Brodkorb at his home in Eagan, Minnesota. The petition was filed in Pinellas County, Florida by Sandra Grazzini-Rucki on September 26, 2018. Grazzini-Rucki moved back to her home in Florida this past June.

Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in 2016 on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

In the petition requesting the injunction, Grazzini-Rucki falsely claims Brodkorb recently followed her, in Florida, in a black vehicle with Minnesota license plates. Brodkorb does not own a black vehicle, nor has he never been to Florida. Brodkorb was in Minnesota during the time Grazzini-Rucki claimed he was in Florida. Also in the petition are claims that Brodkorb has cyberstalked Grazzini-Rucki.

A court hearing on the petition filed by Grazzini-Rucki is scheduled for next Friday, October 12, 2018, at 10:30 AM in Clearwater, Florida. Continue reading

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki moves back to her home in Florida

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki is no longer in Minnesota and has moved back to her home in Florida, according to public records.

Last month, Grazzini-Rucki requested her probation be transferred from Minnesota to her home state of Flordia. The request was approved last week, and Grazzini-Rucki has since moved back to Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki was released from the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee on May 15, 2018, after serving a total of 240 days for her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

She remains on supervised probation until September 13, 2018, and was living at an address in Stearns County after being released from prison. The requested transfer proves again that Grazzini-Rucki has ties to Florida including a residence.

Homesick: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki requests transfer to Florida

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki has requested that her supervised probation is transferred from Minnesota to her home state of Flordia, according to public documents.

Grazzini-Rucki was released last week from the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, after serving a total of 240 days for her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

She remains on supervised probation until September 13, 2018, and is currently living at an address in Stearns County. The requested transfer proves again that Grazzini-Rucki has ties to Florida including a residence.

Though she operates on a belief that lack of ownership proves she is homeless; it is clear Grazzini-Rucki has resided in Florida since 2016.

Despite falsely telling law enforcement at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Clearwater, Florida that she was homeless when she was booked into jail on March 27, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki is now requesting that her probation is transferred back to Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki lives at a waterfront estate community in Florida

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.

Grazzini-Rucki will have to provide an address in Florida to allow for the transfer of her probation from Minnesota.

In a jailhouse video from March 29, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki told her boyfriend Jack Auld that she plans on giving the Minnesota Department of Corrections an address where she won’t be living, and Auld agrees.

It is not known at this time what address she has provided to probation.

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 $2 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.

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki released from prison today after serving 240 days

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was released today from the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, after serving a total of 240 days for her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

Grazzini-Rucki served the final 14 days of her sentence of in Shakopee, but she served the bulk of her sentence at the Ramsey County Jail while awaiting her criminal trial.

According to Stearns County Community Corrections, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki will be living at an address in Stearns County while she is on supervised probation. Her scheduled end date of probation is September 13, 2018, and Grazzini-Rucki will be prohibited from leaving Minnesota to live at her home in Clearwater, Florida.

But in a jailhouse video from April 5, 2018,  Grazzini-Rucki brazenly declared that if she is ordered to stay in Minnesota, she will leave. “It wouldn’t matter anyway; I’d fucking leave anyway,” said Grazzini-Rucki. [WARNING: Video contains strong language.]

Grazzini-Rucki has no known relatives that live in Stearns County, but a small number of her remaining supporters live in the area. Continue reading

Busted: Grazzini-Rucki reacts to being caught in lie about being homeless

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.

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki re-sentenced; will serve 14 additional days in prison

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki executed the remainder of her jail sentence at a court hearing this morning at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki received credit for serving 266 days in jail and will serve the balance of her sentence – 14 days – at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee.

Grazzini-Rucki will remain on supervised release for an additional 4 1/2 months after she finishes her sentence.

The court hearing was momentarily delayed because Grazzini-Rucki refused to walk from the jail facility to the courtroom. She was placed in a wheelchair and transported to a holding cell near the courtroom.

Nearly 45 minutes after the hearing was scheduled to start, Grazzini-Rucki walked briskly into the courtroom smiling, without the assistance of a wheelchair.

Through her public defender, Scott Baker, Grazzini-Rucki claimed she suffered injuries during her transport from a jail in Florida to Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki claimed she suffered a broken nose, a concussion, and injured her neck, and back. She also claimed she suffered a spinal cord injury.

Her attorney said he had no records to confirm Grazzini-Rucki’s claims. She requested to be immediately released from custody.

This request was denied, by Judge Terrence E. Conkel.

Assistant Dakota County Attorney Kathy Keena said she had no information to validate Grazzini-Rucki’s claims of being injured while en route to Minnesota.

Keena said Grazzini-Rucki did not appear injured when she walked into the courtroom. She added that Grazzini-Rucki is prone to “exaggerating.”

Once Grazzini-Rucki entered the courtroom, the hearing lasted approximately 10 minutes. Grazzini-Rucki declined to make any statement to the court prior to being sentenced.

Unlike previous court hearings, Grazzini-Rucki had no supporters in the courtroom.

UPDATE: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki back in jail in Minnesota

UPDATE (12:30 PM, Monday, April 23, 2018) – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had a brief court appearance this morning at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki is being held without bail pending her next court appearance, scheduled for Friday at 9 AM. Grazzini-Rucki has applied to be represented by a public defender, despite living in a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida. Stay tuned for updates.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was booked into the Dakota County Jail at 5:48 AM this morning after being transported from the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki had been in custody in Florida since March 27, 2018, after a warrant was issued for her arrest when she failed to appear at her re-sentencing hearing on March 26, 2018, related to her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

The girls’ father, David Rucki, was awarded full custody of all five of his children in November 2013, while two of his daughters remained missing.

On November 18, 2015, the girls were found living on a ranch in northern Minnesota by law enforcement, headed by the Lakeville Police Department.

The Rucki sisters were missing for a total of 944 days and were reunited with their father days after they were found.

They continue to live with their father and other siblings at the family’s home in Lakeville.

Grazzini-Rucki is scheduled to have her first court appearance on Monday, at 10 AM at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota.

In total, it took Grazzini-Rucki eight days to be transported with other inmates from Florida to Minnesota. The company that transported Grazzini-Rucki stopped in at least three different states – Georgia, Texas, and Illinois – to deliver other inmates to correctional facilities.

Since being convicted in July 2016 on six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights, Grazzini-Rucki, and her supporters have continued their behavior of making false allegations against David Rucki, his family, the media, law enforcement, and the judiciary.

Her disdain for law enforcement and the court system has become more flagrant, her rhetoric more incendiary, and her behavior increasingly dangerous.

Grazzini-Rucki is currently on probation for her role in the disappearance of her children, which she has repeatedly violated. In March 2017, Grazzini-Rucki announced that she and others would be targeting the family members of judges, attorneys, and county staff, including their children.

‘Homeless’ and ‘penniless’ Sandra Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease to live at Florida condominium

Despite repeated claims that she is “homeless” and “penniless”, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease in March 2016 to live at a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida, according to the owner of the condominium where she has been living.

Staff at the office which manages of the waterfront estate community also confirmed yesterday that Grazzini-Rucki was living in a condominium on the property and was seen by staff within the last month.

Missing in Minnesota published information in January based on public records which showed that a person named “Jaclyn Auld” with the same birthday as Grazzini-Rucki was residing with John “Jack” Auld in Clearwater, Florida.

After a warrant was issued for her arrest on March 26, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki turned herself in at approximately 9:00 PM the following evening at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office which is located just seven miles away from her home in Clearwater, Florida.

According to public court documents and staff at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Grazzini-Rucki falsely claimed she was homeless when being booked into custody.

Over the last few days, Missing in Minnesota worked to provide additional evidence to refute claims made by Grazzini-Rucki and her attorneys and supporters that Grazzini-Rucki is homeless. Supporters of Grazzini-Rucki have gone so far as to claim that Grazzini-Rucki “relies on couch surfing” and eats “cold cans of Spaghetti-O’s in order to survive.”

In fact, yesterday morning while Missing in Minnesota was working to confirm additional details about Grazzini-Rucki’s lease for her condominium in Clearwater, Florida, a supporter of Grazzini-Rucki and self-described “investigative reporter” posted a blog story which falsely claimed she was “rendered homeless” and living “on the street” in Florida.

Michelle MacDonald claimed in an affidavit filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court last September that Grazzini-Rucki was “homeless.” MacDonald’s law license was suspended for 60 days in part for her misrepresenting facts while serving as Grazzini-Rucki’s family court attorney.

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 $2 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.

But as Grazzini-Rucki sits in jail in Clearwater, Florida, awaiting transport back to Minnesota, further confirmation that she has not been “homeless” could have serious ramifications when Grazzini-Rucki eventually appears again in a courtroom in Dakota County. Continue reading

‘Homeless’ Sandra Grazzini-Rucki using an alias and living in waterfront estate community in Florida

SandraGrazziniRuckiJackAuldIn January, Missing in Minnesota published information based on public records which showed that a person named “Jaclyn Auld” with the same birthday as Grazzini-Rucki was residing with Jack Auld in Clearwater, Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki’s address was also recently updated in the public court file to Auld’s Florida home after court documents sent to Grazzini-Rucki’s previous mailing address were returned to the court by the United States Postal Service (USPS) with Grazzini-Rucki’s new Florida address.

Grazzini-Rucki had been using the residential address of her family court attorney Michelle MacDonald as her mailing address. Based on records with the USPS, the mail forwarding service expired on December 14, 2017.

Auld was with Grazzini-Rucki at the Star Island Resort and Club in Kissimmee, Florida on October 18, 2015, when she was located by the United States Marshals Service a month before Samantha and Gianna Rucki were found.

Mr. Auld had reportedly cooperated with law enforcement and helped lead them to Grazzini-Rucki.

Auld has described Grazzini-Rucki as his “best friend” and “soul mate.”

At approximately 9:30 AM – 30 minutes after the re-sentencing hearing was to start at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota – Assistant Dakota County Attorney Kathy Keena requested that a warrant be issued for Grazzini-Rucki’s arrest for failing to appear in court.

Judge Karen Asphaug granted Keena’s request, and an arrest warrant was later issued for Grazzini-Rucki. Judge Asphaug also said in court today that Grazzini-Rucki had not completed her required 12 days of Sentencing of Service, which she is required to complete every year she is on probation.

O Canada: ‘Homeless’ and ‘penniless’ Grazzini-Rucki stashed money in Canadian trust company

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, who claims she is “homeless” and “penniless”, had money deposited in a Canadian financial services corporation as recently as December 2017, according to information mistakenly included in a post on Dede Evavold’s blog.

The news of Grazzini-Rucki having financial assets in Canada comes weeks after the discovery that Grazzini-Rucki has been actually living in a waterfront estate community in Florida under an assumed name.

As previously noted on Missing in Minnesota, Grazzini-Rucki has falsely claimed she is homeless and destitute in an attempt to manipulate public opinion and the legal system for nearly six years.

In reality, Grazzini-Rucki had access to over $2 million from her family in the last eight years and the total amount of her current net worth is unknown.

The use of foreign banks to hide assets shows the depth of Grazzini-Rucki’s efforts to mask her true lifestyle.

Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in July 2016 of six felonies for her role in in the disappearance of her daughters. Dede Evavold, a friend of Grazzini-Rucki, was found guilty in September 2016 on six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights related her involvement in disappearance the girls.

Grazzini-Rucki’s false claims of being “homeless” and “penniless” 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.
