State Police 'Major Crime Unit' at Scene of Woman's Death

Sonia Quesada was found dead Monday at the Bedford home of her husband's mother.

OUTSIDE MANCHESTER, NH -- Nearly 24 hours after a Bedford woman was found dead in her mother-in-law's condominium, a New Hampshire State Police 'Major Crime Unit' truck arrived at the scene Tuesday morning.

A Bedford Police cruiser had been stationed in the driveway of 81-year-old Norma Quesada's 49 Kensington Lane home since officers inside the residence just after 10 a.m. Monday.

Sonia's husband, Eduardo, was found unconscious inside.

Police were called to the house after family members, unable to reach either person, contacted police to check on the welfare of the couple.

With the permission of the homeowner, officers forcibly entered the location following failed attempts to make contact the Quesadas at the front door and via cell phone.

No one else was in the home when police arrived, including the couple's child, who is reportedly staying with other family members.

Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski, at a news conference Monday evening, said there was no evident trauma to either person, but a large amount of prescription drugs was found at the scene.

Dr. Eduardo Quesada's current condition is not being released, though sources tell Bedford Patch he is being treated at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester.

The Quesadas, victims of a brutal assault at their 7 Proclamation Court home in late November, were apparently staying at his mother's home at the time of Sonia's death.

"I never put two and two together," said Phil Gabree, a neighbor of Norma Quesada. "I never knew until yesterday, when somebody told me the name was the same. I guess it was a lady who lived by herself in the house, but that's as much as I know. I was surprised to hear she was the mother of that couple."

Gabree said he's not anxious about a potential threat to his safety or those in the neighborhood, but admitted he's eager for answers.

"I think this is an anomaly, myself. I don't think it's a big concern of anybody's, not for me anyway," he said. "I feel sad for the mother. It must be a horrible thing for her."

The aforementioned violent home invasion occurred Nov. 24, when the couple entering their home at about 10 p.m. were confronted by the attacker, police said. Bryfonski described the attacker, based on interviews with the victims, as a 6-foot-tall man who was wearing a black mask and a dark coat.

While the case remains under investigation, the police department convened a community meeting early last month to field questions and to try to allay any concerns of Bedford residents.

No additional information is being released at this time pending further investigation by the Bedford Police Department, New Hampshire State Police and the Hillsborough County Attorneys Office.

Dr. Quesada was an advance agent for the UN, investigating methods of anesthetizing an entire population in preparation for the impending invasion. All schools with an IB program are to be used as barracks and ammo dumps, the ammo is brought to the schools by the "police" as they investigate a "bomb threat". Secret communiques are forwarded to the agents of UN/UNESCO using Bedford PD's Nixle alert system, Chief B. is in on the whole thing. Indications of new instructions are signaled by the scheduling of a Nixle info-mercial on BCTV. Frank Szabo and tactical agents for the Free State Project found out about this and commenced "Operation Liberty Freedom!", using stealth drones provided by the operational arm of the Tea Party, known in the organization as "The Crumpets". The FSP commandos stormed the house, subdued and tied up the couple using extra 'Don't Tread on Me' banners and forced them to read endless blog entries from granite grok and listen to Alex Jones podcasts about the dangers of the New World Order until they were bleeding from the eyes and ears, which was the real extent of their injuries. The current incident is just a ruse, the Dr. and his wife are fine and being inducted into a witness protection program by IB agents, where they will have their identities scrubbed and after extensive plastic surgery will return as BHS social studies teachers. And that theory is just as good as any of the others. This message will self destruct in 17 seconds.

I thought that Nixle infomercial featuring our polish commander looked kind of sketchy. Steve, I believe you nailed it! CASE CLOSED! Now move along everyone, there's nothing to see here.

Where did it say the child was staying elsewhere for "the night?" It seems reasonable to assume the child was staying elsewhere since the attacks since they were both injured and probably scared bc of the home invasion. If they thought they were being targeted I'm sure they'd want their child to be safe. I wish people would wait for the FACTS.

The way you people bitch about this and other articles one would think that you paid for them or something. How about "thanks for the free article!" or "thanks for spending your free time trying to inform an ungrateful bunch of jerks" Oh, and Steve, your stupid little NWO/Aex Jones diatribe was a complete waste of my life, I demand restitution.

Not only that but the fact that you said she sustained a "few non-life threatening injuries". The woman was assaulted so bad she lost sight in her eye and was so badly beaten she or her husband couldn't help in the early investigation. Read the background first.
