The son found dead with the body of his mother in their luxury Chelsea apartment was an actor who may have had a heart attack after his ailing mom passed away, family and sources told The Post on Sunday.
“They had a very quiet, almost hermit-like life,” Julianna Wedell, 61, said of her 95-year-old mother Agnes and 64-year-old brother, William Wedell — who had bit parts in flicks such as “It Could Happen To You” with Nicholas Cage and Woody Allen’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
The mother and son were found dead in their apartment in The Tate on West 23rd Street during a wellness check just after 2:30 p.m. Saturday — her on the couch and him in a bed, according to law-enforcement sources and kin.
Agnes had been doing poorly for at least a month, her daughter told The Post.
The medical examiner believes that the mom was dead for at least a week and her son likely for two days, according to law-enforcement sources.
A younger sister called the police to get a wellness check because she already knew their elderly mother had been ailing.
“My brother mentioned that our mother’s health was declining before the holidays,” Julianna said. “He said she wasn’t eating, sleeping more.
“So, we figured natural causes,” she said of the death of her mother.
“My brother, that was the shocker!” Julianna added.
“He might have had a heart attack, we don’t know,” she said, revealing a younger brother previously died from a congenital heart condition that she called “a hereditary kind of thing.
“We’re still waiting to hear back from the medical examiner. He said they would contact us when they found the cause,” she said.
Julianna said her brother moved to Manhattan from Chicago to pursue acting. He was a day caretaker for his mom when they died.
Law-enforcement sources said they don’t suspect the deaths were the result of foul play, believing the pair was likely sick.
”My first thought was they both had COVID,” one neighbor, who asked not to be identified, told The Post.
Sources said they don’t believe the deaths were the result of foul play, believing they were likely sick.
“The police were here but there was no sense of anything sinister, they were so matter of fact about everything,” the neighbor said of the double deaths of the “private” mother and son.
