Police are investigating the death of an 80-year-old woman inside her Ridgewood apartment on Thursday morning.

Ganina Olszewaka was found unconscious in the bedroom of her apartment on Madison Street between Fresh Pond Road and 60th Place just before 8:45 a.m. on June 8, law enforcement sources said.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to a 911 call along with EMS units, who pronounced Olszewaka dead at the scene. Her body was transferred to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that Olszewaka had some trauma to her head and body, and it may have been the result of an assault that occurred previously. Police did not indicate how recently that assault may have happened.

The source went on to state that the victim’s son is being questioned by 104th Precinct detectives, but no charges are pending at this time.

The investigation is ongoing.
