Search For Suspects Continues In Deadly Brooklyn Home Invasion

Search For Suspects Continues In Deadly Brooklyn Home Invasion

According to MSN.com, the 100-year-old wife told the officers that approximately four unknown people followed her into her ground-floor apartment and tied up her and her husband before ransacking their home.

Waldiman Thompson, 91, and his 100-year-old wife, Ethlin Thompson, were tied up and robbed in a violent home invasion.

After the suspects left, the woman was able to untie herself and call 911. They apparently had about $5,000 in the house, a high-ranking police source said.

They were taken to a local hospital where the man was pronounced dead. In the meantime, for the victim's heartbroken family, none of this makes any sense.

Mr Thompson's niece Karlene Grose says she saw her uncle last Sunday, when he visited her to say goodbye to her terminally ill mom. "It breaks me heart to see my uncle died, he was like a father to me, he grew me up in Jamaica". His cause of death was not immediately clear.

HIs wife, Ethlin Thompson, was treated for superficial marks to her legs and arms, made by being ted up.




"She came running out", Peterson said.

The Thompson's reportedly lived in their brownstone for decades and were staples in the neighborhood.

The Thompsons were married for 30 years. They then proceeded to do the same thing to her husband.

"She's a loving person", her brother Garfield Bringle said, according to the News.

The Thompsons were landlords and PIX 11 reported that the intruders may have been after money the couple collected from their tenants. "I don't know who would do this".

Adams is also reaching out to the community to be strong as police search for the culprits. Authorities are continuing to review the surveillance footage; it's possible it may be released later Thursday as cops turn to the public for help tracking down the suspects.
