DOZENS of calls are flooding in to help police catch the killer of a 90-year-old woman.
Detectives have revealed how the public has been moved by Connie Mitchell's tragic death after she was mugged near her Meltham home.
And they have revealed they have received some good information after Thursday's media appeal for help when Mrs Mitchell's daughter, 49-year-old Margaret Berry, made a tearful plea for information.
Mrs Mitchell, a widow, fell to the ground as a robber sitting in a Citroen AX reached out and grabbed her handbag on Coniston Road in Meltham just before 11.30am on Monday, February 27.
He then callously drove away, leaving her badly distressed on the ground.
Mrs Mitchell had suffered a
serious head injury and died from complications caused by this injury on Tuesday at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Det Supt Andy Brennan, who is leading the investigation, said: "Since our appeal we have received some very interesting calls that are assisting us greatly.
"However, we are still keen to hear from anyone who has not yet been in touch.
"We would like to thank the public and the media for their continued support in this matter."
Police - who later found the car in Halifax - are treating Mrs Mitchell's death as manslaughter.
At most there was just £20 in her handbag.
