Chilling 911 call released in Fort Bend County home invasion
"I need help, I need help so bad," the woman said during the 911 call.

RICHMOND, Texas (KTRK) -- "Someone just broke into my house and shot my husband," Brenton Estorffe's wife frantically said during a 911 call that was released from a deadly Fort Bend County invasion.

In the video above, you can hear more of the call as the wife was begging for help.

Authorities have identified a vehicle believed to be connected to a home invasion and murder earlier this week.

Estorffe, 29, was asleep in his home on Glen Rosa Drive when two men broke a window and entered in the back of the house. He was shot and killed while confronting them.

The couple and their two children were all at home during the invasion.

A light-colored four-door sedan is seen on surveillance video nearby around the time the break-in happened, according to Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls.

"We see the same vehicle enter the neighborhood before the 911 call took place," Nehls said.
