Residents of Good Faith, Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara, are trying to come to grips with the gruesome murder last night of a 75-year-old woman, allegedly by her 53-year-old son.
Cecelia Madray was discovered lying on her blood-covered floor with a wound to the head at around 20:00 hours, by members of the area’s Community Policing Group (CPG). Her son, who is said to be a drug addict, was also in the house and he was promptly taken into custody.
Reports reaching this newspaper stated that the CPG members were contacted after neighbours heard a commotion in Madray’s house.
When the CPG members went to the house and called out for Madray’s son, they got no answer.
They were left with no other alternative but to break the door to get in. Once in, they made the shocking discovery of the elderly woman lying on the floor covered by a mosquito net.
Kaieteur News understands that when questioned, the dead woman’s son told the CPG members that she fell on the steps on Tuesday. However, the CPG members found no trace of blood on the stairs to support the man’s story. They observed that the woman’s body was still a bit fresh.
While news of Madray’s death, allegedly at the hands of her son, was shocking, it came as no surprise to many, since she had suffered repeated physical and sexual abuse.
According to a police source, Madray’s son was arrested and spent four days in the Mahaicony Police Station lock-ups after it was alleged that he had raped his mother. However, the source said that the woman refused to give the police a statement so that he could be charged and placed before the court.
