Mom Arrested in Fl, Daughter safe

Philadelphia, PA– Police have recovered video evidence at Philadelphia International Airport indicating Bonnie Sweeten, and 9 year old Julia Rakoczy, previously thought to be abducted, are now in Orlando, Florida.


Following almost 28 hours of multiple Law Enforcement agencies engaged in an all out man hunt for Sweeten and her daughter following her 911 calls alleging they had been kidnapped and in the trunk of the family car, the gig is up.

Although Sweeten used a fake ID and cash to purchase two one way tickets to Orlando International Airport yesterday, immediately following her calls to 911. It has been discovered that Ms. Sweeten is also a notary public, which would make it very easy to falsify an identity.


Sources close to the investigation have confirmed to blinkoncrime that Sweeten has a prior arrest record, and has recently been accused of embezzling over $300,000 through her work at The Carltiz Foundation, located in New Hope, PA. Sweeten was the asisstant to the founder.

The Carlitz Foundation was founded by Debra Carlitz. Ms. Carlitz is a Pennsylvania attorney who in 2008 was given a one year suspension from the PA Supreme Court overseeing the PA bar for one year. Calls to the office of Ms. Carlitz were not returned.

    Feasterville is in Neshaminy school district. Her kids went to Bensalem schools. Sounds like fraud to me right there. The parents from the PTO might want to check into the finances if she was involved! Didn’t anyone from the elementary school in Bensalem notice they didn’t live in Bensalem? If Bonnie was so “active” with the school, how come no one noticed she lived outside the district? Surely the child has friends who knew where she lived.
    The dumb act by the husband, ex-husband, and friends and neighbors is just not working. Are you saying NO ONE noticed she was going off the deep end?
    I also had the thought about PPD…seems the crimes started YEARS before the 3rd child.
    I especially loved the part where she took her “favorite” child with her….my heart breaks for her teenage daughter. This kid whose last name matches no one mentioned in any of the news articles, was just uprooted from her school in Bensalem and taken away from her friends and support system. Imagine trying to fit in at a new school with this going on!
    ANd who the hell would post her bail? the parents she just forged a check from? the husband she is estranged from? her boss that she embezzled from? her friends and neighbors that she lied to and stole from?…and shame on the family members who took her in after she scammed all these people who trusted her! Do they really think she will not do it to them?
