Mother Found Buried Beneath Living Room Couch

An elderly woman, aged 82, was discovered deceased and concealed beneath a sofa in her condominium in Holland, Pennsylvania, over the past weekend. This shocking discovery was made after her son allegedly stole her vehicle and drove to Washington, D.C. There, he reportedly attacked police officers with a skateboard while unclothed and subsequently confessed to murdering his mother, according to prosecutors in Bucks County.

A detective from Bucks County working on the case reported that local law enforcement received a call from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, Father’s Day. The call was regarding the arrest of 49-year-old William “Billy” Michael Ingram, who was accused of assaulting a police officer and damaging a police vehicle in the capital. The suspect reportedly confessed to the murder of his mother, Dolores Ingram, according to D.C. police.

Following the suspect’s confession, Bucks County authorities conducted a welfare check at Dolores Ingram’s residence. The Village Shires condo, located on Beacon Hill Drive, was immediately identified as a crime scene. Upon arrival, investigators noticed blood on the window sill at the back of the property. They entered through an unlocked window and found blood smeared on the walls, window, and floor, with the furniture inside the condo noticeably disturbed.

Inside the living room, investigators found a pile of various household items, including clothes, glass plates, towels, linens, a blue laundry bag, and a futon. When an officer moved the couch, he discovered a foot protruding from underneath. The foot, which was cold to the touch, was identified as belonging to an elderly white woman, showing no signs of life.

According to court documents, a neighbor named Michelle reported hearing loud noises early Saturday morning. She reviewed footage from a camera outside her residence, which showed William Ingram running out of the apartment shirtless at 1:42 a.m. Several hours later, the suspect was seen leaving the residence with a shirt and a duffel bag. He allegedly stole his mother’s Honda Civic and was later arrested in Washington, D.C. under unusual circumstances.

As of Monday, William Ingram remained in custody in Washington, D.C., according to the District Attorney’s office. While Pennsylvania investigators await autopsy results, the suspect has been charged with theft, receiving stolen property, and unauthorized use of his mother’s car. Local residents expressed shock at the incident, describing such violence as “unusual” and “rare” for the area. One neighbor, Brandon Garrett, recalled seeing Dolores Ingram outside tending to her flowers.
