A couple, who were both doctors, were found with their hands bound and their throats slashed in their nearly $2 million penthouse in Boston, Massachusetts.
According to The Sun, the bodies of British anesthetist Dr. Richard Field, 50, and his fiancee Dr. Lina Bolanos, 38, were found with a “message of retribution” scrawled on the wall.
The Boston Globe reported that Field was able to send out a tax message on Friday evening pleading for help from a friend.
However, by the time police arrived, the both Field and Bolanos were dead. CBS Boston is reported “police found a BB gun or a ‘replica gun’ inside a backpack.”
30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira opened fire on police as they entered the room, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.
“This individual had just killed two people,” said Evans on Saturday. “He had nothing to lose.”
Police wounded Teixeira and he was later taken to Tufts Medical Center, where he was treated.
As a SWAT team swept the apartment, The Boston Globe reports on what they discovered.
The bodies were bound at the hands and there was blood on the walls, said the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. One of the officials said the killer had also written a message of retribution on the wall.
Photos of the two doctors had been cut up, the officials said.
Police still don’t have a motive for the murders, though they have said that Teixeira and the doctors did know each other, but have not released how they knew each other.
Teixeira’s ex-girlfriend said she never would have expected him to be violent. She had given him the keys to her apartment, said he was good with her 9-year-old daughter and always dressed well in a coat and tie.
However, she was shocked to discover that he was wanted in connection with a bank robbery last summer.
She said he had texted her out of the blue on April 22 to inform her that she would likely never see him again and that he didn’t plan on living long. He also told her that he would never hurt anyone, but she said that was “lies.”
The woman told the Globe that Teixeira told her, “I’m not a good person.”
“I said, ‘I didn’t believe you when you said that the first time, but after you became a bank robber, I believe you!’ ” she said. “And we started laughing.”
“He said, “No, I don’t steal from people. I rob banks,” she said. “I said, ‘OK — but you don’t hurt people, right?’ He said, ‘No, no, no, I wouldn’t do something like that.’ ”
David Codrea provides some more information that was not released in some of the mainstream media coverage of the murders. He writes:
Curiously, but not unsurprisingly, the UK reports and most “mainstream news” reports omit significant information about the suspect, Bampumim Teixeira. Most sources, like the Chicago Tribune, are telling us he “had recently been released from jail after serving time for larceny. Last June, he passed a note demanding money at a Boston bank. He committed the same crime two years earlier, prosecutors said.”
But we need to turn to what’s disparaged by the elite media as “alternative right wing fake news,” like a Monday report on WND.com, to find out the “West African immigrant” is a “permanent legal resident” who for reasons unknown had his sentence reduced and was not deported. And no one in government seems to know why – the state defers to the feds and the feds don’t have an answer.
If nothing else, that should call attention to the so-called “rigorous security screening” we’re told immigrants must go through. How that’s possible with no reliable comprehensive records, especially for the Third World, never seems to be explained.
According to The Boston Globe:
Field, 49, was a doctor at North Shore Pain Management, certified in interventional pain management and anesthesiology, according to a biography on the company’s website.
He had completed a fellowship in pain management at Massachusetts General Hospital, served as an instructor at Harvard Medical School, and worked as an attending pain physician and director of anesthesia for plastic surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the biography said.
“Dr. Field was a guiding vision at North Shore Pain Management and was instrumental in the creation of this practice,” read a statement posted by his practice. “His tragic and sudden passing leaves an inescapable void in all of us.”
Bolanos, 38, was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear and an anesthesia instructor at Harvard Medical School.
“Dr. Bolanos was an outstanding pediatric anesthesiologist and a wonderful colleague, in the prime of both her career and life,” said John Fernandez, president & CEO of Mass Eye and Ear, in a statement.
One thing is for sure: Police failed to stop the murders, but because they had guns, they were able to stop the murderer from killing them. I wish the doctors would have had and used guns instead of text messaging. Perhaps they would have been alive today.
