SoCal Woman Who Suffered Stroke After Pepper-Spray Attack Dies

Police say a 50-year-old Westminster woman who suffered a stroke following an attempted purse snatching in which she was pepper sprayed has died.

Police Officer Van Woodson says Kun Min Kim was taken off life-support Thursday and pronounced dead at Orange Coast Memorial

Woodson says an autopsy on her body is scheduled for Friday, and
the case is now a homicide investigation.

Kim had been on life-support since Sunday evening's attack. Police say a woman sprayed Kim while she parked in her apartment complex. The woman fled with what turned out to be a lunch sack.

Police say Kim made it to her apartment, then was transported by
paramedics to the hospital, where she suffered the stroke.
