Autopsy Shows NJ Woman Died From Blunt Trauma, Heart Disease

LAKEWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Autopsy results show a southern New Jersey woman allegedly killed by her adult daughter was struck in the head by a blunt object.

Ocean County prosecutors tell the Asbury Park Press that 67-year-old Claudette Foster also suffered from heart disease.

They say that health issue and the head injury both led to her death, and she may have been dead for about a week before her body was found Thursday morning in her home at a gated senior community in Lakewood.

Foster’s death has been ruled a homicide. Her 45-year-old daughter, Lisa Marie Foster, who had lived with her mother for about 18 months, remained jailed Saturday on $300,000 bail.

Prosecutors believe the two women had an argument that turned physical, leading to Claudette Foster’s death.

    MAGPIE-who the hell are you to say that. Can’t say your first name and to say that about Claudette if she was or wasn’t nice to you. She was always nice to us. This is no way to die and to die by the hand of you kid. RIP Claudette

    My heart is broken hearing about the death of Ms. Claudette Foster. I worked with her for 6 years at Canon Business Solutions. She was a beautiful woman with a fantastic sense of humor. When people work together so long we become more like family than friends. She is going to be missed greatly. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

        Magpie- Give me a break Lisa Marie was a bum who lived off her mother then had the nerve to hit her then leave her to die for a week. If you had any balls you wouldn’t hide under the fake name Magpie. Fran I’m with you she was a nice lady and good friend .Also what 45yr old women still live with her mother?? Lisa Marie rot in hell …
