On Monday, Sonia Quesada was found dead, and her husband, Dr. Eduardo Quesada, was found unconscious after police forcibly entered a Bedford home owned by Dr. Quesada's mother.

Dr. Quesada was treated by Bedford paramedics and taken to the hospital. His exact condition is unknown at this time.

There were no other people inside the Kensington Lane home when police entered, and there were no signs of forced entry prior to their arrival. Relatives called police after the couple failed to appear to scheduled appointments on Monday morning.

"A family member of the Quesada family contacted the Bedford Police Department to request a welfare check," Police Chief John Bryfonski told reporters Monday night.

Police went to the house shortly after 10 a.m., found it secure, but couldn't get anyone to come to the door.

"Bedford police officers attempted to contact cellular telephones known to be used by the Quesadas, but again received no contact," the Chief said.

Officers got permission to go inside, and found Sonia Quesada dead. Her husband was unconscious and taken to a local hospital.

"I can say there was no visible signs of trauma to either of the individuals and that there was a large amount or what was considered to be a large amount of prescription medication found nearby," the Chief said.

On November 24 last year, Dr. Quesada and his wife suffered serious injuries when they were attacked during an armed home invasion at their home on Proclamation Court in Bedford. Police have not said the two incidents are related.

Police won't say whether they think this was a murder-suicide attempt. Chief Bryfonski said officers were able to talk to Dr. Quesada at some point Monday, but he would not elaborate on what was said. An autopsy will be performed on Sonia Quesada Tuesday.

No arrests have been made in the November home invasion. Police say their looking into Sonja Quesada's death as an unrelated incident. The Bedford Police Department, along with New Hampshire State Police and the Hillsborough County Attorney's office are investigating.
