(UnitedVoice.com) – Alexander Talcott was a fixture in Republican circles in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, he has now been killed. Authorities are trying to determine what exactly happened at his home.
On August 26, the 41-year-old attorney died of a neck wound after being stabbed in his Durham home. The following day, New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella released a statement about the death saying a medical examiner performed an autopsy on the lawyer and confirmed he died from a stab wound.
Everyone involved was quickly identified. However, police had not arrested anyone as of August 29. They’re investigating whether the person who stabbed the attorney did it in self-defense.
William O’Brien, the state director of New Hampshire’s chapter of the Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA), issued a statement to 10 Boston calling Talcott a “staunch advocate for the core values of the” GOP. He went on to say the deceased attorney was “an exceptionally skilled champion for the rule of law” who also believed that free and fair elections were critical. He also held an “unwavering belief in liberty, free markets, and limited government.” Talcott used to serve as the organization’s state director.
According to Talcott’s LinkedIn profile, he was working as the director and general counsel for New Constellation Capital, a real estate firm. In 2021, he was also an adjunct professor at the University of New Hampshire’s Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, teaching finance and business law. The Associated Press reported the university released a statement saying it was “deeply saddened” to learn about Talcott’s death.
Tributes to the late attorney poured in on X, formerly Twitter. One user said Talcott was “truly one of a kind” and said he would be missed. Another said the world lost “one of the smartest most amazing guys.” Talcott’s friend Chris Buck shared a photo of him and said he missed him.
One of the few times @AlexTalcott let me take a picture of him. Usually, he was the one pointing the camera at politicians. I'm glad that he looks genuinely happy. Just over 12 years ago at the #NHYR lobster bake while working for @ThadMcCotter. Miss those days. Miss you Alex. pic.twitter.com/cKbjhw6v0f
