Police believe suspect targeted doctors in South Boston killings

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston police say they believe 30-year old Bampumim Teixeira targeted the two doctors he is accused of murdering inside their multi-million dollar luxury South Boston penthouse.

Dr. Lina Bolanos and her fiance Dr. Richard Field were found tied up and murdered on Friday night inside their Dorchester Avenue home.

Police say Teixeira may have known the doctors lived there because he used to work as a concierge at the Macallen building.

Police say officers also found a backpack at the apartment that they believe was filled with Dr. Bolanos’ jewelry.
