A Coral Springs man, accused of stabbing his mother to death last month, has died.
A Wexford nurse made the discovery, shortly after ten o’clock Tuesday night, while making her rounds in the mental health unit of the North Broward Bureau. The nurse observed Syed Ahmed lying facedown and unresponsive. Paramedics responded while nursing staff administered CPR. Ahmed was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m.
Following an autopsy, Wednesday morning, the Broward Medical Examiner’s Office determined Ahmed died of natural causes from arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease (a heart disease).
