SUMTER, S.C. — Sumter County authorities are investigating the beating death of an 85-year-old woman.
Multiple media outlets report that deputies found Elizabeth Wilson in her Mayesville home at 8:45 p.m. Monday. Sumter County Coroner Harvin Bullock says Wilson died after she was beaten with a baseball bat.
Sheriff Anthony Dennis says Wilson's 55-year-old son is being questioned in his mother's death.
A neighbor says another son ran out of Wilson's home yelling that his brother had gone crazy and killed their mother.
Dennis says no one has been charged in Wilson's death.
