Adams County Coroner under investigation for ‘unlawful delivery of a controlled substance’

Outgoing Adams County Coroner Jim Keller is under investigation for Official Misconduct/Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

Court documents reveal that Adams County State’s Attorney Gary Farha requested a special prosecutor to investigate the case on June 21.

“The prosecution of the defendant by the State’s Attorney’s Office could be a conflict of interest for the office, or alternatively, could create the appearance of an impropriety,” stated court documents. “It is in the interest of justice that a Special Prosecutor be appointed to avoid any such appearance.”

Keller announced his resignation on June 20 and was to go into effect July 10.
