Seeking ID of Suspect Who Stole Purse as Elderly Woman Fought for Life

RIVERSIDE – Authorities are seeking the identity and/or whereabouts of a suspect who entered a vehicle belonging to an elderly woman as she laid motionless in her vehicle following a collision.

The collision occurred on August 8, 2018, and the elderly woman was paralyzed from the neck down. After stealing the purse belonging to the victim the suspect used her credit cards in the Riverside area, and a few days later the unidentified woman fraudulently rented a Nissan Rogue in the victim’s name. The rented vehicle was abandoned and recovered in San Diego County.  While she had the vehicle, she was seen driving the vehicle and making additional purchases with the victim’s credit cards.

The elderly female victim recently died as a result of her injuries. Her husband now has credit card companies calling him attempting to collect on the fraudulent purchases. The suspect is around 5’ tall, slender build, red or brown hair. She has a tattoo on her back between her shoulder blades, one on her right calf, with a star in the middle, and a tattoo on the inside of her right forearm.

Now her husband is also dealing with credit collection companies trying to collect on the fraudulent purchases. Any help you can provide in identifying this unknown suspect would be appreciated.
