Dede Evavold’s blog has published a malicious post claiming David Rucki murdered three of his children while married to Sandra Grazzini-Rucki.
This heinous and completely unfounded allegation comes at a time when Evavold is facing a criminal trial for her continued violations of an Harassment Restraining Order granted by a court in Dakota County to protect David Rucki and his family from her harassment.
Missing in Minnesota is not linking to the posts published on Evavold’s blog because of the incendiary tone of material and also due to her perpetual harassment of the Rucki family.
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.
New allegation is escalation of Evavold’s perpetual harassment of the Rucki family
David Rucki and Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had five children during their marriage which lasted nearly twenty years. In the last six years, David Rucki and his family have endured countless unfounded and fictitious allegations, but the allegation that David Rucki murdered three of his children is new.
There is no record of any allegation that David Rucki murdered any children in any court documents, police files, or any record or document connected to David Rucki’s divorce from Sandra Grazzini-Rucki.
The allegation that David Rucki murdered any children was not mentioned by Dede Evavold nor Sandra Grazzini-Rucki during their extensive criminal trials for their role in the disappearance of two of Grazzini-Rucki’s children.
There is no record of anyone ever reporting to any law enforcement agency that David Rucki murdered any children.
The outrageous allegation that David Rucki murdered children is an escalation of Evavold’s perpetual campaign of harassment of the Rucki family in her use of social media since being released from jail in January 2017.
In fact, David Rucki was awarded full custody of all five of his children in November 2013, while two of his daughters remained missing. David Rucki was reunited with his daughters days after they were found on a rural ranch in northern Minnesota.
They live with him and their other siblings at the family’s home in Lakeville.
Criminal trial scheduled for Evavold’s harassment of Rucki family
In the last year, Evavold’s blog has posted pictures of the Rucki family, their home in Lakeville, and the address to the home, in violation of the HRO and the conditions of her probation.
Dede Evavold’s criminal trial for her repeated HRO violations has been scheduled for April 23, 2018.
Evavold was warned by a judge at a court hearing in Dakota County last October that she could face additional criminal charges, including gross misdemeanor and felony charges if she continues to violate the HRO. Evavold violated the HRO just hours after being warned by the judge, and she continues to target and harass the Rucki family.
New probation violations to be filed against Evavold
Last August, Dakota County Community Corrections filed a Probation Violation Report with Dakota County District Court. At a court hearing last November, Assistant Dakota County Attorney Kathy Keena Keena requested the hearing be postponed in part to allow Keena to file new probation violations against Evavold.
Judge Karen Asphaug scheduled the next hearing for June 6, 2018, where a determination will be made if Evavold has violated the conditions of her probation.
