Widow, 88, ‘dies after burglary’
A WIDOW aged 88 has been found dead at home after a suspected burglarly.
The woman, named locally as Jean Whitmore, was discovered on Wednesday night after concern was raised when she had not been seen for a few days.
Neighbours in the quiet residential road in Hall Green, Birmingham, said police told them a back window at the semi-detached property had been smashed.
Mrs Whitmore is understood to have lived alone at the address for at least 25 years and is not thought to have had any children. The house remained cordoned off last night as police investigated the ‘suspicious’ death.
