HOUSTON -- Homicide investigators said a welding torch is the likely weapon used in 12-year-old Jonathan Foster's death, Local 2 Investigates reported Friday.
"We're talking crematorium-type of hot," said one Houston Police Department Homicide Squad officer assigned to the investigation.
Police said they confiscated a badly burned section of carpet from the home of Mona Yvette Nelson, 44, who stands charged with capital murder.
She had a welding background and police found welding equipment in her home on Allwood Street in the Fifth Ward area of Northeast Houston. Police said a section of carpet was badly burned and the smell of a human body filled the area around that carpet.

My God!!I’ve read some outrageous crime stories,this is in a class by itself.
Texas has a death penalty,hope they exercise it.
she needs to be drug out into the street, doused with gasoline, and set afire......a little vigilante justice every now and then is a good thing, considering she will probably get off with a slap on the hand from some liberal judge
Sure doesn’t sound like one of those new fangled love crimes.
There are people so sick and so cruel that they need killing.
Comrade, only white Europeans/Caucasians can hate.
All else is the search for social justice by the oppressed.
It will be a shoo in for this kind of case. If she’d simply shot the boy, Texas would likely consign her to mere LWOP.
THAT’S a she???
Looks like a bull dyke to me.
I'm curious about what "community" this "activist" represents: Hispanic? Gay? There's an angle, what is it?
absolutely gruesome- she tied him up and cremated him alive with a welding torch
the woman is insane and her behavior escalated with dozens of arrests over the years, yet she was protected and coddled by judges
the child’s death is on the heads of this woman’s pubic defenders and the justice system
she may have had the hots for the stepdad and been rejected - in her fantasy world based on casual encounter or sheer fantasy
she is trying to blame him
From a related story in the same paper it is reported that the community organizer's name is "Quanell X", so I would say it is likely a community identified by race-obsession.
Born and raised in TX and lived here almost all of my life
What in the world does LWOP stand for?
Really turns my stomach. I can’t even fathom the pain this young man experienced if this is how he was murdered. It could be that she suffocated him and was trying to burn the body...alhough I can’t imagine anyone stupid enough to try to burn a body inside a house. Regardless, the perp deserves the death penalty.
Life Without Parole.
Just another Sharpton wannabe. More evidence that our society is incapable of handling threats from within.
