The death of Alexander Talcott in Durham, New Hampshire, this past weekend has been ruled a homicide. Talcott, age 41, died due to a stab wound to the neck – a case that has been deemed a homicide by the state’s attorney general.
Talcott was a GOP activist and lawyer who had served as the state director of the New Hampshire chapter of the Republican National Lawyers Association. He was widely respected for his “staunch advocacy” of the core values of the Republican party, and credited by the law association for his “unwavering belief in liberty, free markets, and limited government.” It was noted that Talcott had a “profound contribution to our shared vision of liberty through legal processes.”
“His unwavering belief in liberty, free markets, and limited government resonated deeply in his role as a lawyer. Within the RNLA, his leadership was unwavering in promoting our shared values, ensuring every member felt empowered and well-prepared,” William O’Brien said.
“Alex was an exceptionally skilled champion for the rule of law and the importance of fair and honest elections. We will forever honor Alex’s selfless dedication and profound contributions to our shared vision of liberty through legal processes,” O’Brien added. “His legacy will undoubtedly inspire future generations within the RNLA and the greater legal community.”
The investigation into Talcott’s death is still ongoing, and investigators will look into the circumstances of whether or not the fatal stab wound was in self-defense. The name of the individual involved in the incident has not been released, however the AG’s office state remains that there is no known danger to the public.
The death of Talcott has not only been a tragedy for his family and close friends, but his legacy will surely serve as an inspiration to current and future members of the legal community. Talcott’s commitment and dedication to the law shone through without question, and his death will leave an impact on the legal profession heading forward.
For now, the case is still open and we can only hope that justice will eventually be served. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Talcott family and those closest to him during this difficult time.
