The family of major league pitcher Carl Pavano told police that a former Southington High School classmate was trying to extort money and a luxury SUV from Pavano by threatening to reveal personal information about him, according to a search warrant affidavit filed by police earlier this month.
In the affidavit, Pavano’s sister, Michelle DeGennaro, said Christian Bedard, 36, of Southington, was “attempting to extort monetary funds for his fabricated, false information” and that he believes he can hold the Pavano family “hostage” with the information.
DeGennaro filed a complaint with Southington Police in December, after receiving messages from Bedard she considered harassing on the social networking site Facebook, The messages included demands for a luxury SUV.
“The only way your brother is getting out of this… is with a heart-felt apology and a navy Range Rover with tan leather,” Bedard said in one message to DeGennaro.
...In an interview Monday, Bedard said he was writing a journal as a way of giving closure to what he said was an “emotional and physical relationship” between him and Pavano which lasted for three years while the two were high school classmates.
“I’m sure they don’t want any of this getting out there,” Bedard said Monday.
