A reward of up to £5,000 has been offered for information regarding the attack on 94-year-old Emma Winnall from Birmingham.
Crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers has put up the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the attack.
Mrs Winnall suffered horrific injuries including a fractured skull and a partially severed finger after being badly beaten overnight last Monday night (30 April) into Tuesday morning in her home in Pensby Close, Moseley. She remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
A 93-year-old woman, who was the victim of a "despicable" attack in her own home, has died as the result of her injuries.
The daughter of a "defenceless" 94-year-old woman who was attacked in her bed has appealed for help to bring those responsible to justice.
