Woman, 100, Tied in Deadly Home Invasion Escapes, Calls Cops

Woman, 100, Tied in Deadly Home Invasion Escapes, Calls Cops

"They've been living here for many years". That is what investigators are trying to figure out.

The couple's family said it was heartbroken by the incident. "It breaks me heart to see my uncle died, he was like a father to me, he grew me up in Jamaica".

Karlene Gross, the couple's niece, told NBC4 that she learned of her uncle's death while watching the local news.

They tied up the couple and rummaged through the house, one of several row homes on the block. Waldiman Thompson is now dead.

Four men broke into the Decatur Street home in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 3:30 p.m., police said.

PNP, NBI welcome PDEA lead in drug war
The second phase of the anti-illegal drugs campaign was launched in October 2016. Police waged an all-out war against illegal drugs upon Duterte's orders.

The suspects targeted the woman first - creeping up behind her, throwing a blanket over her head and tying her up with a cord - before doing the same to her husband.

But the crime went from bad to disgusting when 91-year-old Waldiman Thompson, the husband of 100-year-old Ethlin, died later that day, according to the New York Post.

The centenarian somehow managed to free herself and call cops, but her husband was unable to do so. Officials say the 100-year-old was treated on the scene for superficial marks around her legs consistent with being tied up.

The husband died from possible injuries he sustained during the violent break-in in Bedford-Stuyvesant Tuesday afternoon, according to police. "Fun-loving people. Everybody loved them", said the victim's brother, Garfield Pringle. Officers were going door-to-door asking neighbors if they saw anything, and crime scene tape surrounded the brownstone as detectives scoured for clues, including surveillance video.
