    Just wanted to say that I feel so bad for MN's children right now. Everytime something comes out from MN's past I think of how they're feeling. From what we've read they had to have had a life of he$$. grandfather was a RSO, mother was a career criminal and now this. Even tho they are in no way involved in any of this, they must be feeling mortified.

    I do think it's weird that he's leaving houston.. however, every family I've ever known who has lost a child (Sids, still born, or accident), which is 10 families. 9 of them divorced, and SD and mom's relationship was on the rocks anyway.....

    was just getting up to speed on the previous thread and was struck by this post from @howfortunate and the need to carry it over:



    I've been following this case as a lurker, woke up this morning and realized I had something to say, so here I am....

    Many years ago, when my sister was killed in an accident, I read a book about grieving that stayed with me for one particular passage, and it's something I want to share with Jonathan's family and all of you who may be haunted by the thought of what Jonathan and others may have endured.
    The author (who I'm sorry I can't recall) was counseling a family whose daughter had been tortured and killed by a serial murderer, and the one thing he really wanted them to take to heart was to realize that whatever it was she endured, for her it was over-- it's the family and other survivors that re-live it over and over, whereas she only had to live it once, and afterwards was at peace. As survivors when we re-live these events on behalf of our loved ones we can imagine that it is as never-ending for them as it is for us, but that is not the case.
    Thank you howfortunate, for posting those thoughts and thank you for coming out of lurkdom to pass that on. Welcome

    IMO, Mona's family is shocked, but open to the current charges:

    SNIPPED; BBM

    http://www.click2houston.com/news/26334596/detail.html

    "He was going to go down there and sit in front of her and speak to her and see," he said.

    And re attack on her own adult child:

    According to the probable cause affidavit in the case, the officer "observed multiple injuries to her daughter's face, arms, neck and hands."

    The daughter was also bleeding and had a knot under her right eye,
    according to the document.

    but did any of your friends leave town 2 days later and leave the grieving mother on her own? I'm sorry, but that tells me a lot about this man's character. Even if his marriage is rocky, this moment should not be about "his" feelings and what is making "him" uncomfortable. He should suck it up and be there to support/comfort his wife.

    because he may have been seen there. If he didnt take burn and dump the body, whats there to lie about?

    fwiw I do not rule out others unknown or known. I question DDs associations, and cannot rule out involvement (not neccessarily DD) from others, yet.

    is any of this relevant to the current investigation? If LE thinks there is something wrong with this man leaving I am sure they will address it.

    Presumably they did separate before this child was murdered so JF's mom might not want him around. And as he is not a suspect then clearly he is free to move about if he so desires.

    I missed that he was leaving Houston. Was a reason stated? If he is leaving town the LE must be extremely confident he has nothing to do with the murder. Do you have a link for that? TIA
