GARDEN GROVE, Calif., March 16 (UPI) -- Police in Garden Grove, Calif., said an elderly woman was found beaten to death in her home.

Betsy Ross Pigg, 81, who is thought to have been descended from seamstress Betsy Ross, the reputed designer of the first U.S. flag, was found dead Wednesday, The Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Lt. Dennis Ellsworth of the Garden Grove Police Department said computer technician Thomas Levingston was arrested Wednesday on an outstanding warrant for financial elder abuse against Pigg.

Ellsworth said Livingston, who was being held Friday at Theo Lacy Jail in Orange, Calif., is a person of interest in the homicide investigation but not a suspect.

"There are a number of people we are looking at," he said.
