Police Believe Child Was Killed With Welding Torch
Click2Houston.com ^ | Friday, December 31, 2010 | Stephen Dean

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.

On the other hand, as much as I wish the guy would die in a fire, nobody’s been able to prove the guy’s done anything illegal. Yet.

Actually, he has. That quote above is inciting violence. Were a white man to stand there and say that about blacks he'd be in jail. It just goes to show that we are in real trouble here in the U.S.

The worst thing Obama has done to this nation is increased the divisiveness among groups to the breaking point. His choices to ignore hate when it suits him is feeding the fires of angst and hate among minorities. Obama and his form of ghetto justice and reason are destroying any unity we had in the U.S.

Pretty sad situation. Justice needs to be reinstated in this country across the board. Race, wealth, political connections should NOT be deciding factors on executing justice. I do not understand why we can not return to a strict code of law. Injustice leads the people to allow theo-political systems like Islam to become established. Then, it goes from bad to worse.

Unfortunately, under Texas law that stops *just* short of it.

And white supremacists (just as Q-X is a black supremacist) have said that about blacks in Texas, in public rallies, and not gone to jail for it. Ridiculed, yes, but not gone to jail.

‘It was a “dead look,” the investigator said. “Anything but remorse … Stone cold without a soul.”’

That’s called the Thousand Mile Stare Of Death. It’s extremely popular with the Muzzies! Any time you see a mug shot of Muzzie who has been captured after committing an act of terrorism 99 times out of 100 has the same look.

This is Houston, Texas. The jury won’t deliberate long. This pile of excrement will be strapped on the well-worn gurney in Huntsville in record time. We elect judges in Texas for just such a case as this.

This guy needs to go missing, not turn up dead. The last thing we want to give these groups is another martyr to “inspire” them.

Taken from an earlier article. This "girl" is psycho.

Nelson told community activist Quanell X that police need to take a closer look at Jonathan's stepfather.

"She said she's not a child killer and she would never do this," community activist Quanell X said.

Quanell X said that Nelson told him she feels wrongly accused and that Davis had a hand in the boy's death.

Mona Yvette Nelson

"She said the stepfather, David, paid her $20 to dispose of a container, and in that container she later learned it was the child's body," said Quanell X.

Davis said Friday that Nelson's claim is false.

"Whatever, man," Davis said. "I would never hurt that boy. That was my son."

On Thursday, Davis said he barely knew Nelson.

"I don't know her. I saw her before, though. She looks like a dude," he said.

Investigators said they believe that Nelson acted alone.

To keep our children safe: that must be our first priority.

This is my greatest concern about the decadence that has overwhelmed the United States. Most people cannot imagine the horrors that will follow if the U.S.A. should fall.

There is no limit to the depth of human depravity, as this horrifying tragedy demonstrates. Never forget this.

But never forget this either: There is no limit to the heights of human goodness and heroism. To what extents would you have gone to save this child from what happened if you could have? This is my point.

There are more of us than there are of them, but most people cannot imagine or even believe the horrors the world can deliver.

If America continues in its decline, the horrors that will occur are unspeakable.

Be afraid, but be corageous, and take meaningful action. Truth is our greatest ally. We must defeat the forces of evil and decadence. We must bring America into a renaissance of ascendancy.

The American people can do it. The question is this: Will they?

I’d prefer that, but seeing as how the people who are likely to off him are on his side of the political fence at the moment, I wouldn’t expect them to be any more competent at this than at anything else.

Also, you can’t ever tell for certain what the gators in the bayous will do. :P

I agree she will get the death penalty, but that extreme liberal organization “Amnesty International” will step in and prolong her life indefinitely.

A child murderer, Austin Perry, has been on Texas death row for years — he pled guilty, was convicted, sentenced to death. And now he takes up space and breathes air on Texas Death Row. No execution date has been set. All because of the interjection of this Anti-American organization.

So the U.S. doesn’t really have a dysfunctionally depraved justice system that coddles criminals and harasses victims and their families? It’s just 4Runner’s imagination, right? It becomes easier every day to spot folks on this site with tough guy taglines who think it’s soooo patriotic to defend an indefensible status quo. Next you’ll be defending Obama. In fact, I think someone just has.

Try this: You know what would happen to her in Singapore? Or China? Or Japan? Or Russia? Bottom line: for a criminal or a crazy or a terrorist, there’s no better place to ply their trade than in America, where laws can be twisted to benefit and serve the self-interest of the most heinous among us.

And another thing: Seems a lot of folks here don’t recognize a rhetorical question when they see one. My asking why I continued to want to live in America did NOT require an answer. If you thought it did, you missed the point entirely. C’mon people, wake up!

The little boy that this monster murdered was our neighbor and friend. And so I have followed this case closely.

The murderer pleaded guilty, claimed he was SAVED, and he asked for execution — actually said in Court he would not file an appeal. His execution date was set. Weeks before the execution date, Amnesty International visited him and thet DID file an appeal on his behalf.

And so he sits on Death Row. No execution date set.

http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/stat/austinperry.htm

http://crime.about.com/od/deathrow/ig/Texas-Death-Row-Inmates/Perry-Austin.htm

He killed a 8-year boy, a little boy who was a delight to his friends and the neighbors. Scum of the earth like Perry Austin should be executed immediately, as soon as a judge/jury gives the nod.

Execution dates cannot be set until the convict exhausts his appeals. Thank you, Supreme Court.

IIRC, he will be running out soon - at least we have the express lane for that here in TX.

If ever there was a crime so deserving of capital punishment. At least in Texas if convicted she will likely get the death penalty. Sadly it will take potentially 20 years of appeals before there will be justice.

The DYFS or CPS as it’s called in NYS is a JOKE!! They have no interest in prosecuting minority-perpetrated child abuse as:

1. it’s politically incorrect
2. it’s dangerous work

They are just a tool for vindictive ex wives to harrass their ex husbands for daring to “move on” after they divorce said ex husbands and take their wallets in Matriarchy, err I mean “Child” Support.

I know this because my hubby’s extremely vindictive ex IS a CPS worker as most of the employees there are. IMHO hubb’s ex could easily win “worst mother of the year award and should lose custody due to HER Parental Alienation techniques. It’s like the fox watching the hen house.

This is the product of the family court system that allows the women to block the biodads out of the children’s lives and collect child support at the same time.

To: AbolishCSEU

the biodads give up after repeated attempts to see their children and the court fails to enforce the visitation court order. Only very well heeled men can fight off custodial biomom parental alienation.

the biodads then lose track of their children after the mother repeatedly blocks access with no judicial consequences whatsoever, therefore he is unable to know what is going on (abusive mother, stepdad, etc.) until often times too late.
