Madison Detectives Continue to Seek William Aldridge for Questioning in Death Investigation


January 27, 2014


Madison Precinct detectives are continuing in their efforts to locate and interview William Robert Aldridge, Jr. in connection with last week’s death of his 76-year-old mother. Mary Lou Shy was found dead late Thursday on the floor of her apartment at Windlands East senior living facility on East Webster Street.  An autopsy showed that she suffered head trauma from an as yet undetermined cause.
Detectives believe Aldridge, 47, can help further the investigation into whether foul play was involved.  Aldridge today contacted a detective by telephone, but declined a face to face meeting.  Aldridge is wanted for failure to appear on a 2013 shoplifting charge.
Anyone seeing William Robert Aldridge or knowing his whereabouts is asked to contact 862-8600, the police department’s non-emergency number.
The classification of Shy’s death is pending the outcome of the investigation.
