FBI agents safely recovered Bitterman a week later at a home in Salem, Massachusetts, where they arrested 19-year-old Michael H. Julien. He's charged with inducing panic and interference with custody. His mother, 43-year-old Renee M. Hanson, faces similar charges, along with two counts of obstructing justice.
Julien and Hanson appeared in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. Their bonds were set at $10,000 each and they were ordered to have no contact with the victim.
