A black lady, Mona Nelson, kidnapped a 12 year old white boy, Jonathan Foster, from his home on Christmas eve 2010. She tied him up with twine and then burned him to death with a blowtorch. When she was finished she took his burned lifeless body out to the woods and threw him in a ditch. Her trial began this week.
The national media continues ignores the story…. We share it because no-one else will.
HOUSTON (KTRK) — On Wednesday, the mother of a little boy who was allegedly kidnapped and later turned up dead had to relive that day in court. On Thursday, Jonathan Foster’s grandmother had to do the same.
In tears, Mary Gifford testified about Foster, her grandson, coming home to Texas after living with relatives in Mississippi and Missouri in 2010.
“We talked about him going to live with his mother. That’s when he said that was his wish for his birthday. He was really, really happy. He was flourishing, he was complete,” Gifford said.
Foster turned 12 in November, and on Christmas Eve, he vanished from the duplex where he and his mother, Angela Davis, were living with a woman who was friends with the defendant, Mona Nelson.
Prosecutors say Nelson was the last person to see Foster on the afternoon of December 24. His body was found burned in a ditch four days later.
Nelson is charged with his kidnapping and murder. Her attorney says she had no motive in this case and that someone else could have committed the crime. (continue reading)
