Adopted son arrested a day after Everett woman was found dead

latEVERETT – A shocking twist in the case of an Everett woman found dead in her apartment.

Everett Police on Saturday night announced that they arrested the adopted son, accused of killing his mom Georgina Latshaw. She was found dead in her apartment on Friday shortly after 2:30 p.m.

The next day her son spoke with Q13 Fox News on camera about his mom’s death. At the time of the interview we were unaware that he was a suspect.  He denied knowing anything about how his mom died. In fact the 16 year-old told us that he came back from school and saw the front door of his apartment was open. He knew something was wrong because his mom was not supposed to be home that early in the day.  He said he called  911.

He called his mom his “savior” and “guardian angel” who protected him all his life.

We are not releasing the suspect’s name because he is underage and has yet to be charged.

The teenager was booked into Denny Juvenile Justice Center.

    I thought he was being very strange & emotionless… almost as if he was reciting from some kind of script, my husband said he was probably in shock but it wasn't that. So very sad for everyone involved

    Gina really was his guardian angel. She sacrificed so much for him. That he went on-camera to speak like that and came to a family gathering last night to share in consolatory hugs and sorrow, we just had no idea. I hope the arrest is based on iron-clad evidence so there is no miscarriage of justice. We miss her, we love her and though the pain will fade, her memory will not.
