The 41-year-old was pronounced dead at his home on Bennett Road after being stabbed in the neck, according to New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jennie V. Duval. The manner of death is homicide.

Formella said all parties involved in the stabbing have been identified, and there is no threat to the public. The circumstances of the stabbing were not disclosed and remain under investigation, including whether the person who stabbed Talcott acted in self-defense.
