    Jossey S Mumbai,Jossey, we shouldnt doubt always UP people without knowing facts.They are always the scape goats of any criminality .Of course they do involve.But our deshi people too are not saints.Her own relatives too ,or rented couple as they doubt ,can also be accused one.How could daughter tell the exact time of her death time? First investigate this part.Gold ,money is attracting every evil mind.First findout her financial situation.sad noone found her since four days.Even tenents?something foul.may her soul rest in peace.Since four days daughter didnt call her to talk to her ?Strange.
