Her son, who did not want to speak on camera said his sons alerted him something was wrong with their grandmother when she didn't respond to them.

He said he then went to the back of the home to find the backdoor wide open.

He added when he finally made it up to her room, he encountered what he described as a "crime scene"

Authorities said she was pronounced at the scene.

So far, no arrest or weapon has been recovered.

At this point, it's not clear what type of injury the victim sustained.

Her son tells Action News he plans on setting up a fundraiser to help with funeral costs.
