Midwest City, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) - Joycelyn Louis, a 72-year-old Oklahoma foster parent is about to face justice after she heated up a potato masher and then used it to brand a 9-year-old boy.
According to Midwest City police, Louis heated up a potato masher until it was red hot and then used it to repeatedly burn a 9-year-old boy in her care.
"The foster mother accused him of stealing money from her. At that point she took this potato masher, heated it on the stove to where it was red hot and branded him," said Chief Brandon Cabes of the Midwest City Police Department.
Investigators say the boy then ran to his room crying, however the woman followed him, stating "I'm not finished with you." She then allegedly proceeded to brand him again. When she was done, she allegedly told him "if anybody asks, say you were accidentally burned."
Although the woman has not yet spoken to police about the incident, DHS workers say she told them she burned the boy because he wouldn't listen to her.
Police say they are awaiting a warrant for Louis' arrest. The boy has been taken into DHS custody.
