Bullet Strikes Woman in Wheelchair



by Elizabeth Ruiz
 
Police are asking for your help as they search for the person who killed an elderly woman as she sat in her wheelchair inside her East Side home.
 
Ninety-year-old Ruth Bateman Clay was found dead Thursday in the bedroom of her home in the 300 block of Como and investigators believe she had been dead more than a week.
 
She was last seen the evening of December 23 when members of her church group dropped her off at her home. Friends called police when their attempts to contact her failed.   
 
Investigators say it appears Clay was killed prior to Christmas Eve when a bullet was fired behind her home and pierced her bedroom wall. 
 
Officers are asking anyone with information on shootings or disturbances involving a firearm in the 400 block of Spriggsdale just prior to Christmas Eve to call Crime Stoppers at 224-STOP.
 
A $5,000 reward is being offered.
