Many of you reading this know the pain my family and I faced back in 2007. That pain festered and boiled into a battle that I waged and I had thought I had lost. That battle was called Justice For Jonathan. Jonathan is pictured at the right. He was my first Grandson, and I loved him dearly.

One of the hardest things about writing this hub is retelling what happened on a tragic night back in 2007. I found a website that is about the suspicious deaths of children and Jonathan is on it. The story is told in a very professional way, so I will cut and copy what was written about my Grandson's death. It is from this website.

Jonathan, 23 months, was found unresponsive by first responders in a motel where he lived with his mother, Amy, and her then boyfriend. The little boy’s mother, Amy, 23, and her boyfriend, told investigators that the little boy slipped and hit his head while he was taking a shower with the boyfriend.

It took about an hour after Jonathan allegedly fell and hit his head for any adult in the motel room to call for help for the little boy. On the 9-1-1 tape you can hear Amy, Jonathan’s mother, screaming for the boyfriend to call 9-1-1 as she attempted to resuscitate the toddler. Jonathan was taken to St. John’s in Lebanon, MO. and placed on life support where he died later the same night.

The death was ruled suspicious; the county coroner believed a washcloth was placed over the little boy’s face while he was being tortured (a doctor, called to the child death review, stated he believed Jonathan could have been water-boarded). On the night that Jonathan died, he had a large cut over one of his eyes and a bruise on his face. The boyfriend was still saying that Jonathan had fallen in the shower. The official cause of death was cerebral edema, or swelling of the brain. Laclede County did not press charges against Amy or the boyfriend at the time citing lack of evidence.

My Battle

In the battle that I was led to fight, I protested the Laclede county courthouse and the Prosecutor at that time, Angie Hemphill Wright.

I also wrote. I wrote hubs, articles and even made some websites.

If you have not read all the hubs relating to Jonathan's death and my fight for his justice, I am linking them in order of when they were written below.

Please be prepared when reading these and try to understand my position.

God And Justice

Out of the list of hubs above, I left one out. It is probably the most important one in my opinion. It is called Accepting And Forgiving, But Not Forgetting.

Forgiving is a very difficult issue on a tragedy like Jonathan's death. Somehow and someway, I managed. Don't get me wrong, I still have to battle urges to take it back at times, but with God's help, I am able to let it lay.

God said in His Holy Word that vengeance would be His.

I still follow the lives of the people who were involved. I know my daughter has had her share of problems, but she is getting along.

Let's talk about David Olson though. I have been watching Missouri Casenet on him. I believe his day has come.

It seems that David M. Olson has brought the whole of justice down upon himself. He may not be going to jail for killing Jonathan, but he is facing some very serious offenses. On 12/6/2012 he was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He bonded out for $5000 but his bond has been forfeited for not showing up to court.


On 1/23/2013, Olson was arrested for Violation Of Order Of Protection For Adult. His bond was set at $10,000. On 1/29/2013, he was charged with Aggravated Stalking and bond has been set at $50,000.

Two of the charges above are felonies. I would say that justice may have found David M. Olson.

God works in mysterious ways. I thank Him and I hope that David Olson and my daughter both realize that He is God and they will bow down before Him and call upon Jesus.

Is Justice Being Served?

Concluding

No matter the outcome, God IS IN CONTROL.

I will trust Him.

Jonathan is in Heaven. He is also in my heart.

Jonathan, justice does come upon Earth! It just may not come the way we think it should; but it does come.

What we all must consider is all the wrongs we have done. Have we asked God's forgiveness and sought Jesus for our wrongs? As the video below explains, we all are bad, and God is oh so good. May forgiveness and mercy reign!

I hope you find Jesus, David M. Olson. You see, Jonathan is with Him right now.

Thanks be to God!

So sad...I think about my own grandchildren as I read this...one grandson is being forced to spend time with his sperm donor and I pray like crazy every time he is there...I have a fear that something bad will happen while in his sperm donors "care." I am praying for you and your family and am glad that there is some sort of justice...and the animal will face the Ultimate Judge one day...

My prayers go out to you. I pray that Mr. Olson and your daughter will find Jesus. Such a sad story, but atleast Jonathan is in heaven with Jesus and He will set everything right in the end.

God also forgives but doesn't forget (we wouldn't want Him to be forgetful!!) NO - He "chooses not to remember" according to scripture (and that's very different). Maybe you could aspire to this?

Forgive and don't forget, but choose not to remember

I can hardly comment, I am so sad. I do hope Jonathan's death serves a purpose, and I cannot imagine how much you miss him.

There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of my Grandson, but I know that there is an ultimate plan. Thank you for visiting and may you be blessed in all you put your hands to.
