The body of an elderly woman was found inside a box inside her Brooklyn apartment Friday.
Her son was taken into custody after allegedly admitting he hit her, police and law enforcement sources said.
A social worker made the grisly discovery while making a home visit around 12:15 p.m. at a Linden Boulevard apartment off Rogers Avenue in East Flatbush, according to cops and the sources.
The 67-year-old woman was found dead “in a box,” the NYPD said.
The son — who suffers from schizophrenia — allegedly admitted to hitting his mother and was taken into custody, according to sources.
The cause of the woman’s death has not yet been determined.
