Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, who claimed in a radio interview on Saturday that she is “homeless” is actually living in a waterfront estate community in Florida under an assumed name.
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.
Grazzini-Rucki living in Florida under the alias of “Jaclyn Auld”
According to public records uncovered by Missing in Minnesota, a person named “Jaclyn Auld” with the same birthday as Grazzini-Rucki is residing with John “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.
Auld had reportedly cooperated with law enforcement and helped lead them to Grazzini-Rucki, despite describing Grazzini-Rucki as his “best friend” and “soul mate.“
Grazzini-Rucki currently resides at waterfront property described as “resort style living”
Grazzini-Rucki is living at a property described as “resort style living” with “spectacular, expansive water views.” The waterfront property features a spa, pool, sauna, a tiki bar, and marina with private boat slips.
Michelle MacDonald claimed in an affidavit filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court last September that Grazzini-Rucki was “homeless.” MacDonald’s law license will be suspended on Wednesday for a minimum of 60 days in part for her misrepresenting facts while serving as Grazzini-Rucki’s attorney.
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.”
The use of public documents to locate Grazzini-Rucki was conducted by Missing in Minnesota in the last month to refute the false claim that Grazzini-Rucki is homeless.
Missing in Minnesota has not attempted to contact Grazzini-Rucki, nor will an attempt be made. Although Grazzini-Rucki’s address is now available in the public court file, Missing in Minnesota will not publish her address.
Grazzini-Rucki to be resentenced on felony convictions
The Minnesota Supreme Court recently denied Grazzini-Rucki petition to review her criminal conviction for her role in the disappearance of two of her daughters, Samantha and Gianna Rucki.
On April 19, 2013, Samantha and Gianna Rucki disappeared during a custody and divorce dispute involving their parents – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and David Rucki.
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.
Grazzini-Rucki is expected to appear at a resentencing hearing in Minnesota for her felony convictions.
UPDATE: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s luxury Cadillac Escalade found parked at waterfront estate in Florida where she has been living.
Public records show the ownership of Grazzini-Rucki’s luxury Cadillac Escalade has been transferred to Jack Auld.
Grazzini-Rucki and her supporters have repeatedly claimed that she is “homeless” and has no financial resources. But it is unusual for homeless people and others with limited financial resources to give away luxury vehicles.
