A 54-year-old Bradenton man concerned about his 80-year-old mother found her deceased in her Parrish home just before 9 p.m. Saturday.
The Manatee Sheriff's Office reported the victim’s son became concerned for his mother's welfare when he was unable to reach her for a week after he last spoke to her over the phone around 2 p.m. June 1.
He went to her residence Saturday to check on her and forced his way inside the residence, finding his mother deceased in her night clothes.
EMS pronounced her deceased an hour later. MSO deputies reported finding nothing suspicious.

The deceased was taking medication for high blood pressure and had recently survived breast cancer. Her doctor said he would sign the death certificate.
The body was removed from the residence by Toale Brothers Funeral Home.
