Beheading suspect’s mom, sister release video response

Beheading suspect’s mom, sister release video response

The mother and sister of Jah’Keem Yisrael, as he refers to himself, suspect in the grisly beheading of a woman in Moore, Oklahoma last week, have released a video via Facebook Sunday responding to the charges against him.

“I know what they’re saying that he done. But I’m going tell you this. That’s not my son.”

In the video, the women express their regret and sympathy for the victims, their belief that Nolen was raised properly and with respect for God and man, and suggest that “there’s two sides to every story” and that, so far only one side is being heard, presumably that of the police and the woman who was beheaded. Nolen’s sister adds that he was always a “people person.”

“I’m praying that justice will prevail, the whole story will come out. The whole story.”

They also offer their prayers, and ask for prayers on their behalf.
