In what can only be described as pure evil, a 93-yr-old pensioner suffered from bad PTSD after a burglary at her home and has sadly died from broken heart syndrome.
Betty Munroe found three evil thugs who forced their way into her Northampton home at 11pm on June 11, Northamptonshire Police confirmed.
They got into her house using garden shears and stole all of her beloved jewellery and her late husband’s wristwatch. They also took her purse, cash, bank cards and gold chain from around her neck.
Mrs Munroe’s health went downhill overnight after the attack, despite being in perfect health beforehand. She was diagnosed with PTSD after having repeated nightmares, trouble sleeping, constant sickness and being unable to stop shaking.
She was eventually diagnosed with Takotsubo Syndrome, also known as broken heart syndrome. The condition is characterised by a sudden weakening of the heart caused by emotional stress or anxiety, which can then result in heart failure. Mrs Munroe died this week on Wednesday.
According to the Metro, her family said: “The distressing circumstances of our lovely mum’s death have caused us so much sorrow. ‘Before the burglary, she was happy and living independently in her home of 56 years.
The violent actions of these callous individuals robbed her not only of precious possessions, but of her sense of security and peace and the will to go on. ‘All the generations of our family who owe her so much are bereft at her death.”
