The former Army recruiter was convicted in the death of Nyaneur Mary Pal, a woman he and a friend had met in a Fort Worth bar 10 years ago. Pal was a 30-year old immigrant from Sudan. She was shot in the head and then dumped in a ditch – Valentine’s day 2002. Foster and his attorneys both insisted that he was innocent and that it was faulty lawerying that caused him to lose the case.
As the drugs began to flow Foster uttered his last words, “When I close my eyes, I”ll be with the father, God is everything. He’s my life. Tonight I’ll be with him.” He then turned to the victim’s family, “I don’t know what you’re going to be feeling tonight. I pray we’ll all meet in heaven.”
Foster was pronounced dead at 7:43 PM EST.
