Kerry Smith murder case: appeal for 'Good Samaritan'
Police investigating the death of a young mother in the West Midlands are appealing for a Good Samaritan who offered to help her to come forward.
Kerry Smith died after she was attacked on High Street, Rowley Regis, on 31 July shortly after leaving a shop.
The 29-year-old, who lived locally, was rushed to hospital with stab wounds but was pronounced dead a short time later.
Police are now keen to trace a passerby who stopped to offer medical assistance to her.
A police spokesman said the woman gave her name as Carol and informed people at the scene that she was a nurse.
She is described as a white woman, in her early 50s, 5ft 5in tall, and with red or blonde hair.
Ms Smith's former partner David Palmer, 39, of Mincing Lane, Rowley Regis, was arrested on 1 August on suspicion of her murder.
He was later charged and is currently remanded in police custody awaiting trial.
He is next due to appear before Wolverhampton Crown Court on 2 November.
