Bedford Police, after investigating the scene of a death at 49 Kensington Lane, issued a statement tonight confirming that Sonia Quesada was found dead inside the home of Dr. Eduardo Quesada's mother.
Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski, at a news conference Monday evening, said there was no trauma to either person, but a large amount of prescription drugs was found at the scene.
Police responded to the condominium, located in a 55+ community, at 10:12 a.m. Monday, after receiving a call from a family member requesting a check on the welfare of the Quesadas.
The home was secure, but responding officers received no answer at the door and attempts to contact the couple via cell phone failed. After receiving consent from the family, police forcibly entered the residence.
Sonia Quesada was found deceased inside the home and Eduardo Quesada was unconscious. He was treated by Bedford Fire paramedics and transported to a local hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.
The couple's child was with other family members and was not present.
According to police, no forced entry was evident prior to officers entering the home and no one else was found inside the residence.
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.
The 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.
