According to ClashDaily.com’s sleuth, Donald Joy- “Mona Nelson killed 12yr. old Jonathan Foster with a blowtorch. Nancy Grace dropped the story as soon as she realized it was a black woman murdering a little white boy. The media have avoided the story like the plague, never once looking into whether it was a “hate crime.” The original local news report has been removed. Suspect has sought and received legal counsel from local leadership of the New Black Panther Party.  No story here, folks. Move along …”

HOUSTON (KTRK) — The trial begins today for the woman accused of kidnapping and murdering a boy.

Mona Nelson is charged with capital murder. Prosecutors say she kidnapped 12-year-old Jonathan Foster on Christmas Eve of 2010. His burned remains were found in a ditch soon after, but detectives could never come up with a motive.

Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty. Nelson has asked for a judge instead of a jury to decide the verdict.

Below is the full horror story via The Daily Mail…

Mona Nelson, the woman accused of murdering Texas boy Jonathan Foster, spoke for the first time since being arrest – proclaiming her innocence.

Nelson, 44, told reporters that she would never do anything to harm a child, and that she has five grandchildren of her own

‘I’m not a monster… I love kids,’ she told a local TV station from her prison cell.

Although Nelson is adamant that she would not harm any child, it is not a view shared by police, who believe the 12-year-old Foster may not be her only victim.

The boy was reported missing from his home on Christmas Eve, after his mother claims she received a strange call at her workplace from a gruff-sounding woman.

Jonathan’s mother, Angela Davis, initially told police that he was with a babysitter. But she later admitted that he was home alone.

His burned body was discovered on Tuesday in a roadside ditch in Houston, not far from where he lived.

Nelson told to local KTRK TV that a member of Jonathan’s family gave her $20 to dump a plastic container on Christmas Eve.

She claimed she was drunk on vodka and didn’t know what was inside the container.

Murdered: The badly burned body of Jonathan Foster was found dumped in a roadside ditch in Houston

She said she chose a random Houston ditch to dump the container in.

But police revealed that Jonathan’s burned body was not discovered in a plastic container.

Nelson insisted: ‘I’m not a monster. I have five grandkids and I love kids.’

She admitted having a cutting torch, a welding instrument that police say she used to burn the body, but she said she needed it for her job as a welder.

When asked if she used it on Jonathan, she said: ‘I would never do that.’

Police allege that Nelson’s truck was spotted on surveillance footage dumping something in the ditch where the body was found.

In addition, investigators say they’ve discovered evidence at Nelson’s apartment that allegedly links her to the crime, including burned carpet and twine similar to that used to Jonathan’s hands.

Houston Police Department Homicide Detective Mike Miller called Nelson a ‘cold, soulless murderer who showed an absolute lack of remorse in taking the life of Jonathan Foster’.”

He called the boy’s death ‘an absolute tragedy that can’t be put into words’.
