WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Police are looking for a woman who they say stole a purse from another woman who had collapsed and died before entering a Wichita building.

According to authorities, a woman in her 50s was about to walk into the Inter-Faith Villa Courts building around 7:15 a.m. Saturday, when she died of natural causes. Police say that about 15 minutes later, a woman in her mid-20s walked around her body and stole her purse.

Wichita police Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said Tuesday that when first responders arrived at the scene, a person told authorities about the theft.

Woodrow says the deceased woman has been identified, but her name has not yet been released.
