Two Boston doctors were found were their throats slashed in their luxury condo. The doctors were a couple: identified as Richard Field, 49, and Lina Bolaños, 38. They were found dead, bound at the hands, in their residence on the 11th floor of the condo, Fox 25 Boston reported. An official said the killer wrote a message of retribution on the wall at the scene.
According to the Boston Globe, 30-year-old Bampumim Teixeira is accused of killing the couple. After the two doctors were murdered, police responded to a call of a man with a gun in the area. When authorities arrived, Teixeira began firing at the officers. Police shot the man several times, but did not kill him. He remains hospitalized.
Teixiera and the two slain doctors did know each other, according to the Boston Globe, but officials gave no details.
Bolaños had invited a surgeon for dinner on Friday night but canceled she claimed because Field was not feeling well, according to her boss at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. Just before he was killed, Field texted a plea for help to a friend. When police arrived the doctors were already dead.
Bolaños was a pediatric anesthesiologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. She was known for handling anesthetizing children with complex medical histories, and for remaining calm when crises arose. Field was described as a compassionate doctor who helped heal patients’ pain.
