Just around Christmas 2020, Katie Sorenson posted a video over Instagram claiming that her children were “the targets of an attempted kidnap”. Over the viral clip that garnered over 4 million views, Katie alleged that a man and a woman approached them in the parking lot and attempted to get into her stroller before she cried for help.
Later, the accused couple were identified as Sadie and Eddie Martinez. However, due to a lack of “evidence or witnesses”, the investigation was closed by the police. Saddened by the situation, Sadie’s daughter Esaia Gonzalez spoke to the media about “guilty of being brown” and hinted that Katie was a racist.
