It was a neighbour who discovered the body when, after not having seen her during the whole day, she used a set of keys she had been left for checking on her.
What she found was the body of the elderly woman on the floor with several wounds… and the woman’s 59-year-old son, sitting in armchair in an agitated-cum-deranged state. This was just past eight in the evening of Monday the 13th.
She immediately called the police and the son was taken into custody, suspected of having carried out the killing.
Update: the postmortem concluded that she died from a blow to the head. Yes, there was a puddle of blood and yes there was a large knife on the floor next to the victim, but it now appears that she might not have even been stabbed…
