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.

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 $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.
