When police arrived to the scene, they found her husband, Waldiman Thompson, lying on the floor, still tied up and unresponsive. Cops are viewing surveillance footage of two men walking along Decatur Street holding what looks to be a bag. Inside the home, they found Waldiman still tied and unconscious.

The couple's niece, Karlene Grose, said she was watching the news and saw her aunt and uncle's home on the screen and realized her uncle had been killed by the burglars. First responders performed CPR on the man but he was later pronounced dead. There wasn't initially any sign of forced entry, though police stressed that the investigation is still in its preliminary stages. According to witnesses, Ethlin stated, "They tied me and my husband up and robbed us". ABC reports that investigators believe he died of shock but an NYPD spokesman could not immediately confirm this.

Neighbor Paul Paterson, 55, says Mrs Thompson came running up to him and he noticed rope burns on her legs. According to police, she was confused and did not know her husband had died.

The Thompsons were landlords and PIX 11 reported that the intruders may have been after money the couple collected from their tenants.

"She has not accepted the fact that my father has passed even though many people have already told her this", Delroy Thompson, 68, of Florida told The Post by phone Thursday about his heartbroken stepmother, Ethlin Thompson.

Delroy noted that family members, including himself, were in town the day before the home invasion for a family reunion at his sister's house in The Bronx.

"He never left her side", she said.

"The cause of death is sudden cardiac death following home invasion with robbery and restraint in a person with hyptertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease", said Dr. Barbara Sampton, of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. "This godly and big-hearted couple suffered a truly godless and heartless attack that has struck a blow deep in the soul of Brooklyn".
