Investigations are underway to determine if the death of a Republican activist and attorney in his New Hampshire house is homicide.
According to a New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office press release, a medical examiner has ruled that Alexander Talcott ‘s death was a homicide. He died of a neck stab.
Talcott, who was discovered dead at his Durham residence Saturday morning by police who were then investigating a suspicious death, was identified as the victim. The next day Talcott was confirmed as the victim, and the AG’s press release stated that they had identified all those involved in the incident. They were also continuing their investigation. The release stated that authorities were trying to determine if the person who stabbed Talcott acted in self-defense as part of the investigation.
Names of other individuals involved are not yet available. The Durham Police Department forwarded a Fox News comment request to the New Hampshire Attorney’s Office, who then referred to the release.
