San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill died Thursday in a suspected suicide. In March, Hill attempted to take his life the same day FBI agents raided his office. The SLO investigation was far from stand-alone.

Hill was praised as a caring and effective local politician. Full disclosure: Adam Hill was an opinion page columnist at the college newspaper I edited. We were not close.

  • In March, Cal Coast reported: “For more than five years, multiple credible sources have reported corruption surrounding Hill, several developers and a group of marijuana businessmen. This includes allegations of pay-to-play, harassment and threats.”
