Description: STOCKTON (CBS13) -- Neighbors were in shock after an elderly Stockton woman was found dead at her home in a wheelbarrow, believed to have been killed by a family member. "Everybody out here is in shock because she's such a nice lady," said neighbor Luis Jernigan. Sidney DeAvila, 39, is behind bars for allegedly killing his 76-year-old grandmother. Investigators say the victim's body was discovered Tuesday morning in the backyard of her home in the 400 block of S. Golden Gate Avenue.
"I've been knowing her for years," said Jernigan. "She's like my mother." The elderly woman's neighbors can't believe how she was found. Stockton investigators say the victim's son hadn't heard from her in a week. So he went to her home, where he discovered her body.
"Her nickname was Moms," said Jernigan.
Neighbors described her as a sweet lady who spent a lot of time in her garden.
A CBS13 source says her grandson is a sex offender and was already wanted for a parole violation. The source also says DeAvila fled when police located him at a park Tuesday, but was eventually captured by a canine officer.
Those who know her well can't believe her own grandson is accused of such a crime.
"It's such a tragic loss for everybody," said Jernigan.
The woman's identity has not yet been released.
