Ecclestone’s mother-in-law kidnapped in Brazil

In an incredibly bizarre and very sad news story, according to Reuters, Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone’s mother-in-law has been kidnapped in Sao Paulo Brazil and is being held ransom for 28 million Pounds.

Aparecida Schunck, the mother of Ecclestone’s wife, Fabiana Flosi (39), was abducted and the ransomers demanded 120 million reais (27.8 million pounds).

Ecclestone (85) married Flosi in 2012 and it’s not the first time the Ecclestone’s have been threatened. The ransom is said to be the highest ever asked for in Brazil.
