Woman’s Violent Nightmare Comes to an End – Kidnapper Behind Bars

PASCO – During the monolog of the hit reality cable T.V. series, The First 48, Investigators say “…If they don’t have a lead, a suspect or an arrest within 48 hours, their chances of solving a case is cut in half.”

That’s exactly what Investigators with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office and Pasco County Detective were able to accomplish, after a violent kidnapping left a woman battered and in fear for her life last Saturday. Follow This Link for the Original Story

Throughout the day Saturday, investigators searched desperately 26-year-old Michelle Padurano. During the harrowing ordeal, her abductor, 26-year-old Ricardo Cleveland Sellers Jr. sent images of Padurno’s battered face and demanded money for her safe return.

Thankfully, Padurano was dropped off on Shoal Line Blvd, where family picked her up and transported her to Oak Hill Hospital. Padurano sustained lacerations, bruising, and several broken bones during the brutal attack.

On Sunday, Investigators located Sellers hiding at a Roadway Inn located in Pasco County. Law Enforcement moved in and placed Sellers into custody without incident.

Sellers was booked into the Pasco County Jail on charges of Kidnapping with a Firearm, Aggravated Assault with a Firearm, and Aggravated Battery. Sellers also violated the conditions of his Parole from a previous conviction.

Michelle Padurano was also arrested by Hernando County deputies for two outstanding Failure to Appear warrants. She is currently free on $3,000 bond.

  • Three people in the car one person busted with an ounce of heroin actually on them. 2 people in the car get charged with trafficking heroin. The third mysteriously walks away with a Summons for driving on suspended. Oh wait should I mention that same persons mother sparked an amazing investigation in the hernando county jail because she slept with most of the officers and claims one is the father of the baby. Once again that third person has mysteriously walked away with a minimal record SOMEHOW. THEY SAY SNITCHES GET STITCHES RIGHT? Finally glad to see her with some chargers she “MAY” have to do time for

  • Tom Lemons – Can you clarify the below statement? Who did he send images to?
    And how much money was he demanding?

    “During the harrowing ordeal, her abductor, 26-year-old Ricardo Cleveland Sellers Jr. sent images of Padurno’s battered face and demanded money for her safe return.”

    Although a man should never lay his hands on a woman, these are the sort of things that can happen when people do drugs,
    or associate with people who do drugs!

      • I didn’t ask about abusing drugs, I already knew that, as I stated in my last statement.

        Thank you for answering my questions. 🙂
        And thank you for keeping us all in the loop of what goes on in our county.

  • Ricardo Cleveland Sellers Jr, look up his history. He’s been in and out since 2006. Don’t know why he’s still out running around. I knew him and he’s a violent person. This time I hope he goes for 15 years or more. This guy has a bad history. Just look up his name.

  • How did they know that the guy was in a hotel in Pasco? Family friend whom they visit often? Not just a random kidnapper? What did he want in exchange for her? Money or drugs? Why did he let her out in Hernando Beach? Hmmm? Seems like a pretty dumb plan for this type of career criminal, I’m thinking this is a tall story.

  • kam, My bad, I read this too quick! You’re right about his gun in his right hand. The left hand is out to maintain his space, a common practice in Law Enforcement if your weapon is drawn or not.

    Tuesday, 29 March 2016, 2:17 pm
  • Not a gun, it’s his gloved hand. His gun is in his right hand. Just the angle of the photo.

  • The 6th picture shows a Hernando County Sheriff, holding his gun in his right hand, while pointed his left hand at the girl. That seems very dangerous, if he has his gun out, he should be focused on what he is doing. Someone could of been killed.

  • Michelle? It goes by joke!

    Tuesday, 29 March 2016, 12:36 pm
  • Yea, finally the judges got it right! According to RNRF on Facebook this ass hole is being held without bond. I say put him in a cell with someone his equal and let him get his ass kicked in the cell. Michele needs to get her life on am different path if she wants a better life. As far as the POS, he should be sent to some deserted island and dropped off and leave him there for eternity. This will save the taxpayers money. I say do this for every scum bag that sits in a cell at our expense.
