As Bedford police investigate, state homicide prosecutor pays visit
BEDFORD - Police detectives should soon have the opportunity to interview Sonia Quesada, the woman injured along with her spouse, Manchester anesthesiologist Eduardo Quesada, during a reported burglary at their upscale Proclamation Court home Saturday night, the Hillsborough County prosecutor said Tuesday.
County Attorney Dennis Hogan said authorities have an incomplete description of a person who was in the house and assaulted the two. He hopes that Sonia Quesada will help investigators develop a more detailed description.
"The description they have can certainly be improved," Hogan said.
Elliot Hospital acknowledged Tuesday that the Quesadas are patients at the hospital, receiving treatment. But following their request for privacy, the hospital will not describe their condition.
Eduardo Quesada is believed to have received serious head injuries in the attack, which was initially described as a burglary to the couple's home at 7 Proclamation Court. Bedford police have said they have not ruled out other explanations for the assaults. Hogan said he did not know the nature of Sonia's injuries. A 2-year-old child at the home was unharmed.
A year ago, police made an arrest on an assault charge at the Quesada home after responding to a domestic-related complaint, police have acknowledged. The charge was eventually dropped and the case annulled, which wiped any record of it from public files.
Meanwhile, the chief homicide prosecutor in New Hampshire, Jane Young, visited Bedford police Tuesday. Young and Lt. James Geraghty, commander of the Major Crimes Unit, left the Bedford Police Department about 11 a.m. Young referred questions about the case to Hogan.
"Because this is New Hampshire," Young said when asked why she was in Bedford. The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office, which investigates homicides in New Hampshire, often makes appearances when police investigate life-threatening assault cases. However, state prosecutors don't take over an investigation unless the victim dies.
Police continued Tuesday to keep a presence at the Proclamation Court home. A Bedford police SUV was parked outside the driveway, and the state police crime-scene van was backed up close to the garage.
