BEDFORD, N.H. — Though Sonia Quesada was found dead and her husband unconscious only two months after they were beaten in their home, Bedford police were being cautious Tuesday not to link the two events.
Police found Quesada dead and Dr. Eduardo Quesada unconscious Monday after a family member called asking police to check on the couple. The couple had been staying at a Bedford condominium owned by Eduardo Quesada's mother following the Nov. 24 attack, which left him severely beaten.
The family member told police that several attempts to contact the couple were unsuccessful and that both hadn't shown up at appointments scheduled Monday morning. After trying unsuccessfully to reach them, police got permission from family to force their way into the condo.
Eduardo Quesada, 52, an anesthesiologist, was hospitalized. His condition Tuesday wasn't immediately known.
"There was no visible sign of trauma to either of the individuals," Police Chief John Bryfonski said. "There was a large amount -- or what would be considered to be a large amount -- of prescription medication that was found nearby."
Bryfonski said police found no sign of forced entry. No one else was found in the home; the couple's 2-year-old child apparently was staying with relatives.
