Son prays as father, 83, quizzed on wife's death

THE son of an elderly woman who died in suspicious circumstances at Logan overnight has prayed in front of his parents' Kingston home.

Joe Hu, of Bundaberg, was mourning his 82-year-old mother, who was found unresponsive in a bedroom of the Kingston Rd residence overnight.

His 83-year-old father is being interviewed by police.

Mr Hu described his mother as a loving woman who stayed out of trouble.

"My mum was a teacher, she was very nice," Mr Hu said.

"She never had any troubles, she was very calm."

Mr Hu said the death was devastating.

"Very sad," he said.

"My father just came back from China."

After talking to police, Mr Hu prayed in front of the family home.
