Bell Gardens, CA: Mother Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide Attempt by Son
3:56 AM PDT, October 26, 2009

BELL GARDENS-- A woman was found dead of blunt force trauma and her son was found with suspected self-inflicted knife wounds in what police believe was a failed murder-suicide.

Agnes Bratton, 79, was found brutally beaten in her home around 10:15 a.m. Sunday in the 6300 block of Gotham Street in Bell Gardens, said sheriff's Deputy Lilliam Peck.

The woman's son, who lived with her, was found bleeding of apparent self-inflicted wounds, police said.

The son, a 53 year old man, is believed to have beaten his mother to death before slitting his wrists.

Authorities are investigating whether it was a murder-suicide attempt by the son.

"It is tragic circumstances, obviously," Lt. Patrick Nelson of the sheriff's department said. "And if there were mental health issues, it's very unfortunate that whatever treatment he may have received apparently wasn't sufficient."

The son was treated at an area hospital and is expected to survive.
