In a grim revelation within the confines of a Brooklyn apartment, law enforcement authorities are currently investigating a case where a 67-year-old woman was found deceased in a box. The incident, which occurred on Linden Boulevard at Rogers Avenue in East Flatbush, has left the community in shock.
A social worker conducting a routine home visit was met with the horrifying discovery at approximately 12:15 p.m. on Friday. The identity of the woman, as well as that of the alleged perpetrator, her 30-year-old son, remains withheld from the public.
A Son’s Confession
Reports from the New York Post suggest that the son, who is said to suffer from schizophrenia, has confessed to the murder of his mother. Currently in custody, the man’s mental health condition is a focal point of the investigation.
Emergency responders who arrived at the scene declared the elderly woman dead upon their inspection, noting visible signs of head trauma. Officials have not yet determined the exact cause and manner of death, pending further examination by the coroner’s office.
A Week of Familial Violence
This tragic event follows closely on the heels of another family-related homicide in the Bronx. The NYPD provided details on the incident, wherein 44-year-old Timothy Dargan is alleged to have fatally struck his brother Jason, aged 41, with a bowling ball. In an attempt to conceal his act, Timothy is reported to have placed Jason’s body in a bag and hidden it under a bed in their shared Concourse Village home. The crime took place on Thursday, adding to a somber week for the city.
Both incidents are under thorough investigation as the communities grapple with the reality of these distressing events. More information is expected to be released as the respective inquiries progress.
