New Hampshire Republican Activist Found Stabbed to Death in His Home

New Hampshire Republican Activist Found Stabbed to Death in His Home

“Alex was an exceptionally skilled champion for the rule of law and the importance of fair and honest elections.”

A Republican activist named Alexander Talcott was found murdered in his Durham, New Hampshire home over the weekend. Details are scarce but it has been confirmed that Talcott was stabbed in the neck.

No arrest has been made yet.

NBC News in Boston reports:

GOP activist, lawyer stabbed to death in his Durham, NH, home

A suspicious death investigation that was underway this weekend in Durham, New Hampshire, has been ruled a homicide after an autopsy was completed on the victim.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office said in a statement Sunday that the medical examiner determined the death of 41-year-old Alexander Talcott was caused by a stab wound to the neck. His manner of death has been ruled a homicide.

A spokesperson for the attorney general’s office has confirmed Talcott was a GOP activist and lawyer.

The state director of the New Hampshire chapter of the Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) said in a statement to NBC10 Boston that Talcott stood out as “a staunch advocate for the core values of the Republican Party.”

“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 of Talcott.

“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 New York Post has more:

Talcott was a private equity real estate lawyer in the Granite State who also made a name for himself as a Republican adviser and adjunct professor at the University of New Hampshire business school, according to an interview he gave to Authority Magazine in November.

In the interview, the legal hotshot attributed his success to his innate curiosity and his upbringing on Long Island.

“I take my thinking about a legal career back to third grade, when my state assemblyman in New York visited class,” Talcott recounted. “He showed us a piece of paper that was the bill he introduced in the legislature to clean up a local pond.

“I was the one student who asked for his autograph, and I have that signed bill to this day. It was an ‘aha’ moment about how big things can get done around me.”

Talcott went on to credit his curiosity to his mother, who would often bring him and his sisters to the local library, and said his “superpower” was speed-reading.

Here’s a video report:

The New Hampshire Department of Justice has posted an update which ends strangely with this:

The investigation into Mr. Talcott’s death is ongoing and includes whether the person who stabbed Mr. Talcott acted in self-defense.

There’s obviously more to this story which should become more clear in time. Until then, keep his family and friends in your thoughts.

Who called the police? Yes, a very odd statement at the end,

First off, there few reasons for one person to take another persons life outside of self defense or a court action. Second, I would not be surprised in today’s climate if this was the result of a political attack (e.g., Republican softball practice). If it turns out that his death was a political act then it’ll be interesting and much worse if the MSM doesn’t cover it. I pray this was not a political attack for many reasons,

    It won’t be covered on national news. This is an admission on their part that Republicans who get killed is A-OK with them.

    But given the state of our political system, it cannot be ruled out. It does not have to be a great conspiracy, just Leftist thugs who know that their loyalty places them above the law. Not saying definitely it is, but today such has to be investigated. And you have to realise that reality can be defined as much by what is not said as by what is.

So, no family?

This has become clickbait on every conservative site. It is a lowbrow diversion. Some nobody, local Republican activist is stabbed in a domestic squabble. Big deal. The Illuminati are not involved.

    He’s not a nobody he’s a human being, who apparently was a good person who worked hard and tried to do good things Sounds like. His mother knew the value of education and provided opportunity, with love

    Hers hoping no one says that about you

    Is anyone suggesting the Illuminati are involved? I guess I missed that part of the conversation.

    But is the rabid prog base being ginned up into a fervor over ‘white supremacy’ and all that drivel? Are violent political attacks the inevitable result?

    When you leftists show up trying to divert attention from things like this, do you think we listen?

      Thad Jarvis in reply to Azathoth. | August 29, 2023 at 5:17 pm

      He’s not a leftist. He’s just a garden variety dipshit who swings and misses almost every time he tries to be witty and provocative.

    If only all of the other news that make national news didn’t do so. Is it really necessary for us to know names like George Floyd, Jacob Blake, Philando Castille, Brianna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, , Michael Brown, and Trayvon Martin? Do all “mass shootings” have to be pushed on a national level to make those events seem more prevalent than what they really are? All of these serve as masterbation material for sorry Leftists and concern-trolling Republicans who think they need to show more care on racial issues and make common ground on disarming American citizens. But I bet you don’t think that, do you?

    We need more people who use their greatest weapon, their mind, before shooting off at the mouth. You are case-in-point.

    Yours is a nasty comment.

A stab to the chest in self defense makes sense. The neck? Much smaller area to hit, much less a lethal blow. Need a lot more information, bu I no longer give the benefit of the the doubt.

    It’s hard to give the benefit of the doubt to anyone that doesn’t immediately report the incident.

Blaise MacLean | August 29, 2023 at 10:01 am

The NY Post report says, in addition to the self defence investigation referenced above, that the stabber (?) is known and no arrest has been made.

Maybe a domestic case?

So, it seems to me that they DO know who did it, but it is inconvenient to disclose the identity at this time.
Cleanup pending? Who knows?
How corrupt we have become.

There’s an elephant in the room, and it isn’t Republican.

The Gentle Grizzly | August 29, 2023 at 10:14 am

Watch. It WILL turn out to be a domestic squabble. But, many, including some on here, will find a nefarious Democrat involved plot.

Unsolved Mysteries.

Doesn’t anyone find this strange?

Someone, whose identity they know, killed this man. And all we hear is ‘it may have been self defense’?

WHO killed him? Unless it’s a child, that should have been reported.

There is something wrong about this whole thing.

February 2023: Republican city councilwoman was fatally shot in her car outside her home in New Jersey.

Also Feb. 2023: Republican Milford township councilman was shot and killed in his car parked in a private lot in New Jersey.

September 2022: Man Runs Down Teen With Car, Accused Him Of Being A ‘Republican Extremist’.

Not as violent, but more childish; August 2023: Democratic Rhode Island state senator arrested for allegedly keying a car with a “Biden sucks” sticker.

This is not to imply the murder described in this post is politically motivated.

Is this the same New Hampshire where a Democrat state legislator recently called conservatives “Taliban” and “a**holes”?
