    So 3 bodies found, an infant in a trash can? A burned child? and a woman floating?
    So sad.. at least there will be closure for some families as well. I can imagine not knowing to be worse than knowing what happened to a loved one especially after a long period of time

    Forgive me for bringing this over from last thread in such an inelegant, non-techy, cut-paste form, but I thought it had to be repeated, as I believe it is relevant. Thank you, Peeples.

    No wonder lawyers tell clients to keep their mouth shut, as the Birth Mother and Step-father are their own worst enemies for swaying public opinion. IMO

    Not sure if this has been posted yet but it's the first I saw it reported in the media that the mom and stepdad did not live together: "The boy lives with his mother at the complex. His stepfather also lives at the complex in a nearby unit."

    From what I've gathered...seems like the boy started living with mom and step dad 6 weeks ago, step dad moved out 3 weeks ago.

    Sources say volunteers later found what was described as a burn site in the 9500 block of Bauman near Tidwell. The site is about 1 mile from where the child's body was found this morning.

    this case has me seriously confused! babysitter or no? Was he going to get a game from hme or going somewhere to pick up a game? Was the stepdad at home? Or did he show up at the apt at the same time as JF? Mom got one call? Or was it two? Was the person on the line a man? woman? jonathan?

    I guess i'll wait till we hear something, anything that makes sense...

    Yes, I think that came from a commenter on a news site who is a relative. It's the first time I saw it reported in the MSM.

    Thanks Kimmer, that was me.

    I can't believe how many bodies have been found today. I will add Huston to Portland of the cities I NEVER want to go to - no matter what great points they have.

    Does anyone know a local station that broadcasts evening news live? If so can you post the link? Huston is Central time - an hour behind EST, right?

    Could SD have been baby sitting, hence the confusion? Maybe Jonathan was at SD's and left to go get the game at his house? Or not.........who knows at this point?

    Well, I was doing some research, and Bayou Body Count No. 297 was found Christmas eve, this averages out to be over 5 bodies per week, this year. (This refers to the area where a body was discovered this morning that appears to be a woman.)

    In this article:People are getting away with murder
    Police in the Houston region reported 2,750 homicides from 2004 to 2009. Of those cases, 850 have yet to be solved

    Yes, thanks. And I'm keeping in mind that even though DD is being called the "stepfather," we don't know what his relationship was like with Jonathan.

    Grandmother talks about Jonathan calling his mother at work (saying it was an emergency). She said the call came in just before 2:00 in the afternoon, a few minutes after the boy’s stepdad reportedly saw Foster at his home.

    So if the call really happened and he was in trouble at that time, it means within ~15 min after DD left Jonathan, Jonathan was kidnapped. Small window.

    Starts about :27

    Yikes, I listened to this video too (several times at full blast)... I hear(d) "He a curious kid, he's a pest. He, I mean, he's a wonderful baby."

    Gonna admit, hearing this just set my boat off course.

    Her reactions, and I don't say this with any condemnation, but they remind me of those that are in withdrawal from drugs/alcohol. (I watch quite a bit of Celebrity Rehab.)

    I can only assume that with as many murders as Houston has and as wishy washy as the facts of this case has been that a seasoned homicide investigator should be able to close this case fairly easily if there is family involvement...We can only hope and pray that is the case....Prayers for Johnathan.

    How can they tell it is a child's body... if they can't determine it is not Jonathan.

    He is 4'7, close to adult height, 5 inches shorter than me.

    They don't know the gender.

    How did they determine it is a child and not a small adult? Look at Annie Le, she was as small as me... it's not just me.

    If it's a small enough child to obviously be a child, they should be able to say it's not Jonathan, because he is not a "small child."

    Teeth would tell them an approximate age. Bones would tell them an approximate age. Yet, those would also help with gender.

    So I don't understand how they made that determination if the body is so burned they cannot tell the gender... they shouldn't be able to tell the age either.

    This doesn't make sense, at all.

    a simple x-ray would tell them the age.

    They suspect it is him, but you know they can't come out and say so until it's confirmed. Remember when little Caylee was found? They knew it was her, we all knew it was her, but they had to wait for the DNA to offically announce it.
