    However you say it, the mom blew-away the perv who flew across the earth to assault a girl he only knew from online gaming.

    Right, but it wasn't his mom; it was her mom. The headline starts with "Mom shoots New Zealand man ...", which could be just some woman who happens to be a mom, or it could be New Zealand man's mom. There's nothing to connect the Mom and the teen in that headline.

    Uh, if she was his mom, it wouldn't say "man", it would say "son" or "child" . There's nothing to imply that "man" is related to the mom.

    No it wouldn't. See:

    Man accused of killing mom, burning body in backyard ordered urn from Amazon, police say

    It doesn't say "Son accused of killing mom" or "child accused of killing mom". Just "man".

    Proximity is the implication. We place words close to each other when they refer to or modify each other.
