Ex-girlfriend of Charlotte Sena’s suspected abductor speculates about motive: Report

Charlotte Sena’s suspected abductor may have targeted her family for a ransom because he knew about her grandfather’s $2.2 million lawsuit settlement from a sledding accident, the suspect’s ex-girlfriend speculated.

New York State Police declined to answer questions and remained tightlipped about the case ever since Sena was miraculously found alive during law enforcement’s dramatic raid of Craig Ross Jr.‘s trailer.

But Amanda Preece, who briefly dated Ross Jr., told The Daily Mail that he “never wanted to work” and “always wanted to find people to mooch off of.”

“Charlotte’s grandfather sued the town of Greenfield years ago, and people around Saratoga are aware of this,” Preece told DailyMail.com. “I think that’s why he held her ransom, he was hoping to get some of the money because he’s struggling financially.”

Ross Jr. was charged with first-degree kidnapping, and is being held in Saratoga County jail without bond.

More charges could be filed, police said.
