Mother, Son Found Dead at Bayshores

SARATOGA SPRINGS — A 45-year-old man brutally beat his mother last Monday breaking several bones in her body then sat with the body for nearly 14 hours before shooting himself with a shotgun.

Patricia Ambrozak, 75, owned Bayshore Tropic Hut and Marina, just north of the Route 9P bridge over Saratoga Lake. Autopsies revealed that her son, John Ambrozak, beat his mother in a domestic incident last Monday, breaking several of her bones before grabbing a knife and stabbing her to death. Police say he then sat with the body for the next 12 to 14 hours before killing himself with a single blast from a shotgun.

The bodies were not discovered until Friday morning when a relative went looking for the pair, who had not been seen or heard from since the Sunday prior.

Police say the son had been arrested in 2011 for assaulting his mother.

A nearby business owner said some rumors had been circulating that the pair had been suffering with financial difficulties lately and described Patty as a quiet and nice woman.
