The son of the suspect in the 9-year-old Charlotte Sena kidnapping renounced his father in a foul-mouthed outburst, declaring that the family wants “nothing to do with him” and that he “couldn’t give an f-k if he dropped de*ad!”
As he was seen at his father’s house in upstate Porter Corners on Tuesday, Craig Ross Jr.’s adult son, Joshua, who TMZ has identified as him, exploded.
He is detained. He is not welcome here, at all. He said to a reporter filming the interview, “I couldn’t give an f-k if the dude dropped de*ad tomorrow — I couldn’t care less.
Joshua responded angrily from inside the house, “He’s disgusting, he’s gross, he should die,” when the reporter had asked him to go outside and speak to the camera.
The man asked to be left alone and said, “I couldn’t care less,” about his father.
There were additional reporters present when the man entered the building through the front door and began ranting about his father from behind a screen.
He yelled, “Yeah, he’s my father, but why do I have to deal with this s-t?” according to Fox News. Everybody is asking me these questions. I have no knowledge. I despise him and want him to perish in jail.
Several law enforcement officers had searched the home, which the 47-year-old suspect listed as his address after his arrest Monday.
On Monday, police descended on the home where he allegedly provided occasional care for his 11-year-old daughter.
According to reports, he shared the home with his two sons.
Charlotte was riding her bike in Moreau Lake State Park when Craig is alleged to have abducted her.
The young girl was discovered hiding in the camper’s cabinet after he had just moved in.
The big breakthrough in the investigation happened on Monday when a man is said to have left a ransom note with fingerprints in the Sena family’s mailbox.
Gov. Kathy Hochul told reporters on Monday night that investigators entered the prints into their database and matched them to Ross Jr., who had been detained in Saratoga in 1999 on a DWI charge.
Around 6:30 p.m., police converged on a Ballston Spa residence where the suspect kept his camper behind his mother’s home and “after some resistance” took him into custody, the governor said.
Ross, who has multiple sclerosis, recently relocated back to his mother’s property in Ballston Spa, according to neighbours who spoke to the Daily Mail.
One count of kidnapping was brought against the suspect, but more charges are anticipated.
