A mother who wanted nothing more than to be reunited with her estranged son on Mother's Day was brutally beaten on the head by the man, who afterwards took his own life. Relatives said the mother and son severed ties almost 18 years ago when he beat and chased her from the family's home.
The Trinidad express reports that 70 year old Batia Ramsumair took a taxi to her son's house around 9 a.m.
Neighbours said they heard loud voices and then Ramsumair was seen lying in the front yard. Her face was covered in blood.
Police said the elderly woman was struck on the head with a blunt object.
Reports are that after the attack her son, Basdeo Ragoobar, drank a poisonous substance and died in a track at the back of his house.
