Two engaged doctors in Boston were found dead this weekend inside the penthouse of a luxury condominium building. Police say the two doctors might probably know their killer.
The victims were Dr. Lina Bolanos and Dr. Richard Field. The two were found dead at the Macallen Building in South Boston. Police believed doctors knew the suspect, but how the couple was killed and the motive of the crime is still unknown.
According to its website, Dr. Bolanos, 38, is a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, and an instructor at Harvard Medical School while Dr. Field, 49, is also an anesthesiologist at North Shore Pain Management.
Police officers were dispatched from a report of a 30 year-old man, Bampumim Teixeira entering the building with a gun. He opened fire when the police officers confronted the man at the door. Police fired back and were able to hit the Teixeira several times.
Teixeira was hospitalized after the shooting with non-life-threatening injuries. No police officers were hurt during the incident.
Teixeira is expected to be filed with multiple charges. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday. This is Teixeira’s second crime committed with the same nature. Teixeira passed a note demanding money at a Boston bank in June of last year.
North Shore Pain Management Facebook page posted calling Dr. Field an “instrumental in the creation of this practice” and that his death “leaves an inescapable void in all of us.”
CEO of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, John Fernandez has expressed sadness over the deaths of both doctors.
On the practice’s website, they admired Dr. Bolanos for being an outstanding pediatric anesthesiologist and a wonderful colleague in the prime of both her career and life, and the entire community was saddened by the death of Dr. Bolanos and her fiancé.
