British doctor and his fianc e murdered by former security guard who slit their throats in brutal penthouse attack
A British doctor and his fianc e were brutally murdered after having their throats cut by a former security guard of their luxury penthouse. Dr Richard Field, originally from London, and Dr Lina Bolanos were killed after Bampumim Teixeira burst into their luxury $1.9million Bhome in Boston, Massachusetts, on Friday evening. The terrified anaesthetist managed to send a text to a friend saying an ‘armed man’ had entered their apartment, but by the time police arrived, the couple were already dead.

Yesterday Teixeira, who officials say wrote a ‘message of revenge’ on the couple s walls, was arraigned on two counts of murder by a judge at his hospital bedside. The 30-year-old was shot in the hand, stomach and leg during a shootout with police before he was detained. He entered two not-guilty pleas at Tufts Medical Centre in Boston.
Before he died Dr Field, 49, had texted a friend saying a gunman in the house . The pal then called police but when they arrived the Brit and Dr Bolanos, 38, were already dead.

Police later found a black backpack in a remarkably conspicuous area”. Inside, the backpack was filled with jewellery, “presumably belonging to Miss Bolanos.
Judge Michael Bolden ordered Teixeira to be held without bail, which was not contested by the accused’s court-appointed defence attorney Steve Sack. Teixeira, of nearby Chelsea, had recently been released from jail, having passed notes demanding money from a bank on two occasions, according to prosecutors. He is next due in court date on June 8.

According to reports Dr Field was born in Hammersmith, west London, and graduated from Sheffield University’s medical school in 1999. Dr Field worked at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Paying tribute, one patient wrote on Facebook: “He was an amazing Dr .
who was so kind and compassionate.
“I always said if he ever moved back to England I would follow him . Dr Field changed my life.”
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has not confirmed his nationality. Dr Bolanos worked at Massachusetts Eye and Ear hospital as a paediatric anaesthetist and was an instructor at the Harvard Medical School.
John Fernandez, the hospital’s president, said: “Dr Bolanos was an outstanding paediatric anaesthetist and a wonderful colleague in the prime of both her career and life.”
A drunken hostel resident was caught on camera allegedly beating a security guard to death1 because the man was ‘drinking on duty’. The horrific incident was captured on CCTV 2in the foyer of a hostel in the Russian city of Severodvinsk. Police later arrested the 45-year-old resident who confronted the guard, 57, on his way from his room to the porch of the hostel for a cigarette.
Both men had reportedly been drinking but the resident was unhappy that the security guard was drinking in his office at the hostel when he was supposed to be on duty. The man gave the security guard a piece of his mind and then continued outside for a cigarette but the pair clashed again when he was on his way back to his room. The security guard is said to have told the younger man to mind his own business and the pair squared up to each other before the resident knocked out the guard with a single punch.

The resident then stamped four times on his rival’s head before standing back to survey the damage before kicking him in the side of the head. Video shows the attacker then looked into the guard’s room before checking his pockets and walking away. The footage of the violent attack has shocked viewers after it was posted on social media.

He has been charged with killing the security guard and faces a 15-year prison sentence if convicted. Severodvinsk is home to the main shipyard for the Russian Navy so access is restricted for foreigners. Visitors need a special pass to enter the city.
