Man arrested on unrelated charges after mom's death

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A 47-year-old man who was wanted by Metro police for questioning in connection to his elderly mother's death last week is jailed on unrelated charges.

William Aldridge was located Thursday morning at a Rivergate-area motel and agreed to be interviewed by detectives.

Aldridge reported to police he discovered his 76-year-old mother, Mary Lou Shy, dead on the floor of her apartment at Windlands East senior living facility last Thursday night.

He said he summoned help and then left.

Authorities have since determined Shy died of head trauma. Investigators are working to determine if she died from an accidental fall or if other circumstances were involved.

Aldridge is jailed on possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to appear on a 2013 shoplifting charge.
