Threat to ‘exterminate’ Boca family in 2009 lands man in jail


A Sarasota County man was so unhappy about paying child support that he allegedly left Florida, then threatened his family with extermination, according to an arrest report.

Abraham M. Wonderlie is facing a charge of intimidation by threatening to kill or injure and was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Sunday after posting a $5,000 bond.

The Palm Beach County Sherrif’s Office began investigating the threats Sept. 15, 2009. It was not clear on the report why Wonderlie was not taken into custody by PBSO until Saturday. The arrest report lists his address as “unknown.”

The mother of Wonderlie’s two children told PBSO in 2009 that the 43-year-old man left Florida seven years ago to avoid child support payments after learning he had fathered a second child with her, the report said. The woman was a suburban Boca Raton resident when the threats were made.

During several phone conversations, Wonderlie allegedly told the woman “he will never succeed in life because of the money (the children) will cost him.”

On Sept. 13, 2009, Wonderlie sent the woman an email stating he “will do whatever it takes to exterminate her and the 2 children,” the report said.

The woman told PBSO she was afraid Wonderlie would return and carry out the threats.
