A prisoner who was facing several felony charges has died while in the custody of the Hillsborough County House Of Corrections
Manchester Information has verified that Marc Cincotta, 63 formerly of Concord who was recently arrested after he had been released on personal recognizance has died.
A press release issued Wednesday afternoon by the Hillsborough County House of Correction indicated that Cincotta was transported to the Elliott Hospital Tuesday following a medical event. The jail was notified Wednesday morning that Cincotta had passed away at the hospital.
Superintendent Costanzo stated, “after initial review surrounding the facts of this incident, it was determined not to be suspicious in nature. On behalf of myself and the staff at Hillsborough County Department of Corrections, our condolences go out to the family.”
Court records obtained at the Hillsborough County Superior Court show that all open cases for Cincotta have been Nolle Prossed and the reason given says deceased.
Cincotta was arrested last week in connection with an incident that happened earlier this month involving a threat.
On March 1, 2023, while out on bail, Cincotta reportedly confronted a man inside a local restaurant and threatened him.
This came ten days after Cincotta was released on PR bail for a First Degree Assault charge from October 2022. In that incident, Cincotta allegedly stabbed a man he knew at a homeless camp.
Police set up a perimeter, and a drone and SWAT personnel were deployed to look for Cincotta. After several hours, he was located hiding in a tree stand in the woods. Cincotta was charged with First Degree Assault, Felon in Possession of a Deadly Weapon (2 counts), and Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute.
