A 92-year-old woman who died after being beaten in her home knew her killer, West Midlands police believe.

Daisy Myring was found with a head injury at her house in Brownhills, Walsall, on 31 May and died later in hospital.

Detectives have described the attack as "horrific". Her family has paid tribute to her.

Three people have been arrested in connection with her death and released on bail.

Officers have said that a strong line of inquiry is that whoever entered her home may have had access. The home was not burgled.

'Personal nightmare'

Ms Myring's grandson David Worrall said: "Seven days ago my grandmother, Daisy Myring, the kindest, most caring of elderly ladies, was killed in her own home.

"She was a loving mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and auntie to a large family."

He urged anyone with information to contact West Midlands Police.

"We all obviously miss her dearly and need help in catching her killer or killers so we can have a semblance of closure from this personal nightmare.

"Somebody somewhere knows who committed this senseless, horrible murder and we desperately need help in bringing them to justice."

Asst Det Ch Insp, Wayne Jones, who is leading the inquiry, said: "We need people to come forward with any information they have, no matter how insignificant they think it is.

"This was an horrendous attack on a frail 92-year-old woman in her own home."
