Man dead after being found stabbed in Hoxsett, says AG office

The New Hampshire attorney general’s office said they are investigating a suspicious death on Main Street in Hoxsett, and Jason Wirts, 45, of the Manchester area, died of a single stab wound, according to the chief medical examiner. The autopsy showed that his method of death was homicide, which the examiner’s office defines as “the killing of a person by another.” Hoxt police received a call at about 12:08 a.m. Sunday for a man partially lying on the road near 66 Main Street, and police said Wirtz was unresponsive and bleeding from his neck. He was pronounced dead at Elliott Hospital in Manchester. The attorney general’s office said all parties involved have been identified, and there is no threat to the general public. They have not released information about anyone else involved in the incident. No arrests were made. “We believe we have really identified everyone involved but we know – not just individuals – but knowing their whereabouts and their movements is very important to the investigation,” said senior assistant prosecutor Ben Agati. Officials said they are seeking public assistance with the case. Anyone who sees people walking on Main Street between Daniel Webster Highway and College Park Drive or has driven across the Main Street Bridge between 11:30 p.m. Saturday and 1:00 a.m. Sunday can call the State Police Information Line at 603-628-8477 Done The junction of Hoxsett Road and Main Street closed for approximately 12 hours after the call and has since reopened.
