Man kills himself with shard of glass

Vermont State Police have identified the Springfield man who stabbed himself to death with a shard of glass.

The deceased man is identified as Daniel Murray, 29. Investigators learned that Murray was experiencing a mental health crisis and had gone to visit his mother and stepfather at their home on Melody Lane in Weathersfield.

Murray’s stepfather, 68-year-old Donald Brochu, was working to help him when Murray broke a glass-front cabinet and used a piece of glass to harm his stepfather. Brochu suffered critical injuries but was able to escape, at which point Murray used the sharp object to inflict fatal injuries on himself.

Brochu is being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing, and no further details are available. Anyone with information that may assist in the investigation is asked to contact Detective Trooper Tyler Noyes at the Westminster Barracks, 802-722-4600.
