Ann Cumberland traveled 26 hours from England to be with her injured son in an Omaha hospital.
When she reached his bedside, 30-year old Nate Cumberland was in a coma, having undergone two emergency brain surgeries.
He died six days later.
The mysterious injuries occurred sometime between 6pm on the evening of February 27, 2013 and 5am the next day.
Ann Cumberland cried when she told Channel 6, "my son was injured in the area of of 24th and Harney and somehow in a daze he walked to work to get help, about a mile and a half away."
At the hospital he was taken immediately into surgery and remained in a coma until his death nearly a week later.
His family thought the severe head injuries were the result of a hit and run accident but that changed with the Doctor's assessment who encouraged the family to call police..
"The Alegent neurosurgeon told the the two policeman on Tuesday (March 5) Nathan had either been hit by baseball bat or kicked viciously," Ann said.
Omaha Police tell Channel 6 news what had been an assault investigation is now being conducted by homicide detectives.
Nathan's mother is left with loving memories of her son and heartbreaking thoughts of what appears to be a brutal attack that took his life.
Ann cried as she said, "As a mom I can't tell you what it's like to lose your son in such a way like this, and to know that somebody could just leave him like that is just unthinkable."
