Ceyan Foster, an 83-year-old woman who was raped and beaten in her community of Ewers Lane, Watchwell, St Elizabeth, late last week, succumbed to her injuries on Sunday at hospital.
According to the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, a relative went to visit Foster last week Thursday and observed that the glass on the house was broken.
The CCU said that when the relatives checked the house, Foster was not inside.
She was found in nearby bushes bloodied and unconscious.
She was taken to the hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.
Lawmen assigned to the Pedro Plains Police Station are carrying out investigations.
