Purse Snatching Fatality Update

You may remember on January 4, 79-year-old Sarah Price was leaving the Piggly Wiggly in Norwood Plaza about 3pm. She was knocked down when police say a pickup truck passed nearby and someone in the truck grabbed her purse. She suffered a head injury and was taken to Saint Joseph's Hospital, where she died of her injuries two days later.

Police say new developments this week indicate Price was robbed and died as a result of that robbery. They are still looking for the suspect or suspects.

Anyone who has any information that could help police in this case is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020; a reward is being offered.
