Victim in deadly Manchester, NH stabbing identified

The victim in a deadly Manchester stabbing was identified and his manner of death announced by officials on Saturday. The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office identified the man as Daniel Whitmore, 75, of Manchester. Investigators said around 10:30 am on Friday, Manchester Police received a 911 call for a man suffering from stab wounds on a trail at the west edge of Nutt Pond. Officers found Whitmore with stab wounds and received medical treatment, but he was declared dead at the scene. Authorities arrested Raymond Moore, 40, in connection with the death. He does not have a known address but previously lived in Forrest, Mississippi. Moore was charged with one count of second-degree murder for recklessly causing the death manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life by stabbing him with a knife. An autopsy on Whitmore was performed Saturday by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jennie Duval, who determined the cause of his death was multiple stab wounds and incise wounds and the manner of death was a homicide. Moore’s arraignment will be scheduled for Tuesday in Hillsborough County Superior Court at a time to be determined, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office. The investigation happened on the rail trail off Bradley Street near Nutt’s Pond. One woman who did not want to be identified said she just came off the trail moments before the police arrived. “God was on my side,” she said. “That could’ve been me. I was by myself.” Resident Evelyn Diaz said her fiance came across the victim while out for a walk. “And I was like, ‘What happened?’ And he was like, ‘I found a guy on the ground, and he was bleeding a lot,'” Diaz said. She said her fiance told her the victim had what appeared to be stab wounds.” The stab wounds were really bad, he said, because he said you could tell he was trying to defend himself,” Diaz said. Diaz and her neighbors said the trail had become a trouble spot recently and Friday’s incident only raises their level of concern.” A lot of elderly people live around here, so that concerns me, and the kids go to school here,” Diaz said. Scott Chase with the Attorney General’s office said there is no evidence connecting this case with recent homicides in the area. “We do not believe there’s any threats to the general public still stemming from this incident,” Chase said. The Attorney General’s office said the investigation into Mr. Whitemore’s death is active and ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the incident or Whitemore’s activities on Sept. 2 or the days before his death are asked to report information to Manchester police at 603-668-8711.
