What started as a wellness check of an elderly woman turned into a homicide investigation in Northampton Township  and the victim’s son says he’s responsible , said police.

The woman was identified as Dolores Ingram and lived in a condominium on Beacon Hill Drive in the Holland section of the township.

The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office and the Northampton Township Police Department are continuing their investigation into the killing of the 82-year-old woman. An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday, June 18, authorities said.

Northampton Township Police said they were dispatched to do a wellness check of a resident on Sunday, June 16, 2024, after her son, William Michael Ingram, 49, had been taken into custody in Washington D.C. for allegedly assaulting an officer and damaging a police vehicle. During his arrest, he told several Metro D.C. police officers, he killed his mother.  On Monday, he was charged with stealing his mother’s vehicle, authorities said.

The victim was located inside her home after Bucks County radio dispatchers received a call from the Metropolitan D.C. Police Department to check on her well-being.

Northampton Township police officers responded to the address. From the outside of the first-floor condo, they observed blood on a windowsill and more blood smeared on the walls, window, and floor inside. The furniture inside appeared in disarray. Police forced entry through the locked front door. The living room appeared to have been cleared out, with the exception of a pile of clothes, towels/linens, furniture, and other household items on the far-right side of the living room. One of the officers began to pull items off the pile and move the couch. As he moved the couch, he observed a foot, which felt cold to the touch. The officer noted there appeared to be no signs of life, police said.
