(NECN: Eileen Curran, Bedford, N.H.) - “We’re investigating this as a separate matter,” said Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski.
If police believe two incidents -- one at a home in November, the other Monday night in a condominium -- affecting the same couple are linked, they aren’t saying.
Bedford, N.H. police were called to 49 Kensington Lane Monday evening.
A relative had called police asking them to do a well being check on Dr. Eduardo Quesada and his wife Sonia.
The couple had been staying at Quesada’s mother’s home.
When police couldn’t reach them by phone, they forced their way into the home and found Mrs. Quesada dead and Dr. Quesada unconscious.
“I can tell you there were no visible signs of trauma to either of the individuals,” said Chief Bryfonski. “I can tell you there was a large amount... of prescription medicine that was found nearby.”
This past November, police were called to the couple’s upscale home on Proclamation Court for the report of a violent home invasion.
Dr. Quesada, a prominent anesthesiologist, had life threatening injuries. His wife was also injured, but managed to run to a neighbor’s home to call for help.
The couple told police that when they arrived at home that night, they encountered a man wearing a ski mask.
So far, police have not made an arrest in that case.
In Monday’s incident, Dr. Quesada was rushed to the hospital, where police have had only a brief conversation with him.
“There has been some limited conversation. I’m not prepared to talk about anything he may have said,” said Bryfonski.
An autopsy will be performed on Mrs. Quesada, but toxicology results won’t be known for weeks.
