The 26-year-old mentally ill man who was the prime suspect in the murder of his 56-year-old mother, Wanda Patricia Wilson, has died.

Wilson, also known as Sheila, was on Tuesday last discovered dead in her Kara Kara, Linden home by police officers after neighbours reported that something was amiss. The woman was found on a bed with her head and face smashed and a door atop of her body, police had said in a statement.

Her son, Hosia Ajadai, was taken into custody. However, he reportedly collapsed and died today whilst sitting on a bench outside of the Mackenzie Police Station.

This was confirmed by Regional Commander Hugh Winter during an interview with this publication who noted that the man was rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex where he was pronounced dead.

A postmortem is expected to be conducted.

Ajadai was not yet charged with the murder of his mother. Police were seeking legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), taken into account his mental illness. In fact, Police were expecting a response from the DPP today.
