Divers searching brooks in N.H. home invasion
State Fish and Game divers have been searching two brooks for evidence connected to a violent home invasion in Bedford in November.
Bedford police Chief John Bryfonski said “great progress” has been made in the investigation, but stopped short of saying whether anything was recovered from the brooks in Amherst and Milford. The weather had delayed the searches.
WMUR reported divers removed items from Railroad Pond in Milford behind Bicentennial Park, but it wasn’t immediately known what they were.
“It’s significantly forwarded the investigation,” Bryfonski said of recent developments. “We made great progress both today and in the past several weeks. And so I’m confident we will come to a positive resolution to this matter in the coming days.”
The invasion injured Dr. Eduardo Quesada, an anesthesiologist, and his wife, Sonia.
Investigators said the Quesadas told them they found two men in their $1.1 million house who attacked them
Nov. 24. Sonia Quesada reportedly fled to a neighbor’s house and called 911. She said she and her husband had just entered their home when they were assaulted. Eduardo Quesada was hospitalized for serious injuries.
After the attack, the town held a public meeting to try to address questions and concerns. Bryfonski told those gathered Dec. 6 that the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration joined the police in their investigation.
The police said the incident isn’t related to what happened in January, when Sonia Quesada was found dead in her mother-in-law’s Bedford condominium. Eduardo Quesada was found unconscious.
Bryfonski said there was no visible sign of trauma or any indication of forced entry. He said a large amount of prescription medication was found.
