SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 01.01.13 at approximately 0626 hours, Troopers from VSP-Rutland were dispatched to a large party, attended by over 100 people, at 3593 East Mountain Road. This residence is owned by a Richard Sylvester. They were advised that a bloody male had been located in a snow bank near this residence.

When Troopers arrived, they found a male that was covered in blood. They were able to identify him as Joseph Tannetta, 32 years old, from Massachusetts. Mr. Tannetta had not suffered any injuries and the blood was apparently not his.

The Rutland Barracks then received a call from the Rutland City Police advising that they had a male who was transported by friends to the Rutland Regional Medical Center suffering from numerous stab wounds. This male was identified as Dennis Walsh, 30 years old. Detective from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations were then called in to assist.

Detectives interviewed numerous people who were at the party, the emergency room, and the victim himself. Everyone interviewed were uncooperative and stated that there was a fight that had occurred, but claimed they did not witness it. One female, Brittany Coffey, 20 years old, gave a false name and was also charged with Impeding a Police Officer and Driving While Intoxicated.

This investigation is continuing and state police are asking anyone with information involving this incident to call Trooper Michael Tietz at 773-9101.
