He was arrested and taken to Newtown police station, where he was being questioned over his mother's death.

A MAN who allegedly killed his mum with a pitchfork yesterday morning had just spent all of Mother's Day with her.

It remains unclear if the woman, named in media reports as Linda Connors, died early on Monday or late on Sunday. Also in the auto was a crossbow, a pitchfork wrapped in a towel and the family dog.

Childhood friend Daniel Ikin-McKinnon said Mr White, who went to Sylvania High School, had a serious motorbike crash a few years ago that required him to have a full facial reconstruction. He has had a hard life, he only had his mum.

Police are now investigating whether the crossbow was involved in the woman's death.

Detectives have set up a crime scene at the townhouse complex, and are speaking to neighbours.

She remembered Ms Connors as a nice, quiet woman who kept to herself.

Officers were called to a house on Florida Street, Sylvania about 6.45am on Monday after receiving calls about a person's welfare and discovered the woman's body, police said.

"It was Mother's Day, it's very sad that this has happened", she said.

As of Monday evening, no charges had been laid.

A police source told the Daily Telegraph that Mr White had taken his mother's auto and their pet dog before he was pulled over by police on the Princes Highway.

Police said that they can not yet confirm when the murder took place, but they have not ruled out that it may have happened on Mother's Day.

It's believed Ms Connors eldest son found her wrapped in a blanket with severe head injuries.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area between Sunday night and Monday morning.
