Two boys, aged just 14 and 15, have been arrested on suspicion of murder after pensioner Joy Middleditch, 82, died following a robbery at her home in Suffolk. The woman was found lying on the floor of her home, after which she was taken to the hospital in critical condition, where she died. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

The teenagers are arrested and questioned by the police. Middleditch was conscious when she was found and told relatives and police she heard a commotion at the door before two masked men forced their way inside and knocked her to the ground.

Her purse was stolen and found on the street. It is suspected that the teenagers broke into her house to steal her pension money.

Those close to the pensioner said that she was a strong and determined person who loved life.

– She was a kind person who, unfortunately, was taken from us too soon. We encourage witnesses or anyone who has information to contact the police - said the police.
