In 2000, AMW first aired the case of Julio Bonachea (commerical break mention?). Bonachea had escaped from a Florida prison earlier that year by changing into civilian clothing brought into the prison by his brother. Bonachea was serving 18 years for a home invasion that resulted in a man being stabbed in 1998. Bonachea was captured in Costa Rica in 2001 where he was arrested for a similar attempted murder case. He broke out of a prison there in 2005 and has remained on the run ever since. Since then, AMW has aired him twice in 2009.
Bonachea has worked previously in the marketing, insurnace sales and the travel industries. He is from Cuba and may be there or in Central or South America. Personally I feel he could be in any of those locations.
Admin Note #1: According to Florida wanted persons search, If you have any information on the whereabouts of Julio Bonachea, call the Florida Department of Corrections at (850) 922-6867
I apologize since I must have missed this thread to reply to it but there is a new article out from todaycostarica.com about Bonachea.
Costa Rica’s immigration service has no record of him and it is unknown if nine years later he still is in Costa Rica or has left the country, maybe moving to Cuba as he has family members there. (If he did move to Cuba, then unfortunately the chances of catching him are not too great).
Just a note that according to the warrant flyer in the Florida public warrants search, Julio's real name may be "Julio Bonchea" and not Julio Bonachea. (This also confirms at least according to that site that he was still wanted as of this update- 11/29/2017)
