Son shoots mother to death, turns gun on self
A Philadelphia man shot and killed his mother sometime early this week in Country Club Estates and then turned the gun on himself, the authorities said.
The murder/suicide was discovered Tuesday morning after Philadelphia Police were asked to make a welfare check at a home on Terri Drive.
Sixty-eight-year-old Judy Posey was found at about 10 a.m. shot multiple times near the front door of her home, Police Chief Eric Lyons said Wednesday.
As officers searched the home, Nick Posey, her 38-year-old son, was discovered dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Lyons said.
Lyons said the case has been ruled a murder/suicide.
“Responding officers entered the residence after knocking several times and observed a female body lying near the doorway,” Lyons said.
Lyons said that the bodies are believed to have been there several days before contact was made.
