Esmeralda Morales is desperate to know who murdered her 67 year-old husband, Jesse Morales. She's urging witnesses to come forward.
Morales left his office shortly after 7 o'clock Thursday night walking to his car just two blocks away when he was beaten, robbed and left to die.
The incident happened on 18th Street in Park Slope around 7:30 p.m.
One witness, who asked not to be identified, said the suspect was dressed entirely in black and wore a mask.
Investigators have found several eyewitnesses. They believe Morales was the random victim of a robbery.
"We believe it to be a robbery because the victim's wallet was taken and his watch was taken as well," NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
Morales was a fixture in Park Slope for 25 years, helping neighbors with everything from travel plans to tax returns.
