Medford Woman Found Murdered in Home, Cops Say
Suffolk County homicide detectives are investigating a 45-year-old Medford woman’s death inside her home as a murder, police said.
Bonnie Farrell’s lifeless body was first discovered by her husband inside the bedroom of their Norway Pine Drive home Monday night, police said. Police responded after Farrell’s husband called 911, authorities said.
Farrell, who suffered a head injury, according to police, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s autopsy is still ongoing, according to Det. Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick, commander of Suffolk police’s homicide squad.
Fitzpatrick would not say how Farrell suffered the head injury but said it was “certainly criminal in nature.”
There were no signs of forced entry into the home, he said.
Fitzpatrick said Farrell and her 47-year-old husband, Eric Connolly, have six teenage children, all of whom live in the house. He noted that Connolly and other family members were in the home for a couple of hours prior to Connolly discovering his wife’s body in the bedroom.
Police said the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
