Police in Saratoga Springs say an investigation has confirmed that the deaths of a man and his mother found in a trailer home were a murder and suicide.
Police tell local media outlets that 47-year-old John Ambrozak assaulted his mother, 75-year-old Patricia Ambrozak, early last Monday morning. He broke several of her bones and ultimately stabbed her to death.
Police say Ambrozak stayed with his dead mother for several hours before taking his own life with a gunshot.
An acquaintance found the bodies Friday when he went to check on them after not hearing from them for several days.
