(NECN: Jennifer Eagan) - Police cruisers were parked along 49 Kensington Lane in Bedford, N.H. on Monday evening. Chief John Bryfonski said relatives of Dr. Eduardo Quesada called police on Monday morning asking officers to do a well-being check at the home. The home belongs to Quesada's mother.
Police said no one answered the door at the home. Officers forcibly entered and inside, they found Dr. Quesada's wife, Sonia, dead. Dr. Quesada was unconscious and taken to a local hospital.
Police said there was no one else inside the home, no apparent signs of forced entry and no signs of physical trauma to Mrs. Quesada. They said a large amount of prescription drugs were found by the couple.
Chief Bryfonski said Dr. Quesada was able to speak with investigators later in the day, but the chief would not provide any details about what Quesada said.
Dr. Quesada and his wife were the alleged victims of a violent home invasion in late November, according to police. The couple claimed they encountered a man wearing a ski mask inside their upscale home along Proclamation Court in Bedford the night of Nov. 24.
Dr. Quesada suffered life-threatening injuries. His wife was also injured, but managed to run to a neighbor's house for help. Police said the two incidents are still being investigated as two separate matters.
The couple's two-year-old child was not injured in the home invasion. The child was not at the Kensington Lane address and was staying with another family member.
