Elderly woman dies two weeks after burglary

The nephew of an 88-year-old woman who died two weeks after she was burgled, is appealing for the person responsible to come forward.

Audrey Whitchurch had her purse stolen after the back door of her home in Bulwell, Nottingham, was forced open.

Her nephew says she fell ill almost straight away, and never recovered.

Officers have now released this CCTV of a man they want to speak to in relation to the burglary on September 29.

Enquiries are on-going and we will continue reviewing CCTV in the area and speaking to local residents.

Finding out who did this to Audrey weeks before she passed away will hopefully give the family some closure.

If you are reading this and you are the person who broke in and stole her purse, do the right thing and hand yourself in.
