DETECTIVES have named a man they want to speak to in connection with the death of a 90-year-old woman at Meltham.
Mrs Connie Mitchell died almost a month after a car driver pulled her handbag from her as she walked along a street near her home.
Now police have issued a photograph of the man they want to question.
He is 45-year-old Ian Hemmings, who had been living in Bradford but also has links with Harrogate.
Police believe he is vital to their inquiries.
Mrs Mitchell suffered serious head injuries when a thief in a car reversed up to her in Coniston Road on February 27 and snatched her bag, which contained no more than £20.
She hit her head on the pavement and suffered serious head injuries. Mrs Mitchell died in hospital on March 21 - almost a month after she was attacked.
Det Supt Andy Brennan, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have had a positive response from the public and we are now keen to speak to Ian Hemmings in connection with this incident.
"We believe he has connections with the Bradford and Harrogate areas and would urge members of the public if they see him not to approach him, but to contact police immediately.
"We would also ask him to contact us as a matter of urgency."
Police said Mrs Mitchell was walking along Coniston Road just before 11.30am when a blue Citroen AX, registration number K225 HWY, pulled alongside her.
The car was later found on Heath View Street, Halifax.
Mrs Mitchell's daughter, 49-year- old Margaret Berry, who lives in Beverley, made a tearful plea for information at a police press conference on March 23 - two days after her mother died at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Mrs Mitchell was a widow who was well-known in Meltham.
Det Supt Brennan said the investigation was being treated as a manslaughter case.
The car involved was spotted at Morrisons petrol station in Meltham on the morning of the robbery and had been bought from a garage at Luddenden Foot, near Halifax, on February 22.
At the time of sale, the car had a Union Flag painted on the roof, but this had disappeared before the robbery and the car had new wheel trims. Police want to know who did the painting work on the car.
Det Supt Brennan added: "We are still appealing for members of the public to come forward if they have seen the car or have any information about its movements between February 23 and March 6."
