Police look for suspect in attempted murder of elderly woman

WEST VALLEY CITY — Police named a suspect Wednesday in an attempted homicide of an elderly West Valley woman.

On Nov. 16, police found a 68-year-old woman beaten and partially conscious in her bathtub. She had suffered numerous injuries to her face and several stab wounds to her upper torso and hand.

"This was a very gruesome attack, a very dire circumstance for this 68-year-old victim," said West Valley Police Sgt. Mike Powell.

Police have identified the suspect in the attack as 54-year-old Daniel Reedy, an alleged friend to the woman. Reedy, who police say is known to frequent hotels and homeless shelters, was staying with the woman on the night of the attack.

After the attempted homicide, Reedy fled the scene in the woman's vehicle, police said.

The vehicle has since been recovered.

The 3rd District Court has issued a $100,000 warrant for the suspect's arrest. Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to contact police at 801-840-4000.
