Police conducting a wellness check have found the body of a New York nurse who was bound and wrapped in a sheet in her bedroom closet.

The body of 58-year-old Kyimar Thein was found at around 7 a.m. Saturday in Brooklyn. Police were summoned after she failed to show up for work.

A neighbor, Rodney White, called Thein a “very peaceful” and “good woman.” He says the “whole neighborhood is stunned.”

The medical examiner’s office has yet to determine a cause of death.

Police have made no arrests.
