Lea Florentina Brooke died in a fire at her home.

Someone poured white spirit through the letterbox and set her house on fire in the early hours of 10 November 2008.

Police think that it was a case of mistaken identity. It was also thought that the murderer might have targeted her son who sometimes stayed there and who ran a construction company.

She was a member of the Inner Wheel Club of Wakefield as well as the Ladies' Luncheon Club, The Flower Club, The Civic Society and St Peter and St Paul Catholic Church.
