Family of 82-year-old woman beaten to death may have known attacker


The family of an elderly woman who was found beaten to death in her home said they believe she knew her attacker.

Family members said Australia Landingham, 82, would give you the shirt off her back but she never let a stranger into her home.

Crystal Landingham, her daughter, came back from running errands with her father Sunday afternoon to find her mother dead at the bottom of the basement stairs around 5 p.m. in the 2300 block of South Halsted in the Chicago Heights neighborhood. Officials have ruled her death a homicide.
