Police are offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case of an elderly woman found dead in her Brownsville home Tuesday.
According to police, 83-year-old Jacolia James was found inside her apartment at NYCHA’s Carter G Woodson Complex on Powell Street.
Police say she was found on the floor unconscious and unresponsive.
They say she had trauma to her head and chest, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Family members say James is originally from North Carolina but has lived in Brooklyn since she was a kid. She comes from a huge family with six kids, more than a dozen grandkids, more than three-dozen great grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren -- one who was born just last week.
Anyone with information is asked to call police immediately.
