According to the Boston Globe, federal investigators found two physicians practicing in the state of Massachusetts deceased in their penthouse in Boston. Someone had apparently barricaded them within the home, tied their hands together then proceeded to slit their throats. Media reports also claim that the murderer composed a letter of revenge on the walls of their house and wrote it in their blood. Doctors Lina Bolanos, 38, and Richard Field, 49, intended to marry at the time of their deaths. Local law enforcement in Boston captured a man named Bampumin Teixeira who they believe is responsible for the murders.

A shootout erupted between the suspect and Police during his arrest. No one reported any deaths from the shooting. However, Teixeira did suffer minor injuries from the altercation. Medical response teams took him to a local medical facility to treat him for wounds that didn’t appear to be life threatening.

What we know about the crime so far

Police have yet to find a motive behind the doctors’ assassination; however, they do believe with the utmost certainty that all three parties knew each other well. Authorities claimed when they arrived at the couple's penthouse that they noticed someone defaced photographs of the two specialists and wrote messages on their walls with their blood. There are currently no reports indicating what those words said.

Police so far only said they insinuated that the murderer plotted revenge on the couple. Reports also show that Field attempted to contact someone for help around 8:45 p.m. The couple was already dead before anyone could arrive.

What we know about the parties involved

Investigative reports show that Teixeira is originally from Cape Verde.

Federal authorities know him for being involved in all sorts of criminal activity. According to his record, he committed multiple bank robberies between 2014 and 2016.

Dr. Bolanos was an anesthesiologist and pediatrician at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. He was also a professor, teaching anesthesia at Harvard University’s Medical School.

Dr. Field was a medical professional who practiced medicine at North Shore Pain Management. She specialized in pain intervention and anesthesiology as well.

Teixeira is now being held at Tufts Medical Center under strict supervision as he awaits indictment in Boston on multiple federal offenses, including two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of Field and Bolanos.
