Takes over for Jim Keller, under investigation by State

The resignation of Adams County Coroner Jim Keller, under investigation on alleged drug and misconduct charges, is now official.

The Adams County Board voted Tuesday night to approve John Myers as Keller's replacement. He's previously served in the Coroner's office as both Deputy Coroner and Chief Deputy Coroner, as well as being a former Sheriff's Office deputy. Myers's name was submitted by the County Republican Central Committee after their meeting on Sunday. The Board accepted Keller's resignation at a special meeting in late June, a week after he submitted his resignation. Keller hasn't been on the job, and has been locked out of all County office buildings, since shortly after his resignation, which came a day after a complaint was filed by an Adams County resident. Keller is being investigated for alleged misconduct and drug delivery by the State's Attorney Appellate Prosecutor's Office. There's no word on when that investigation will conclude.

Myers will be sworn in Wednesday afternoon at the Courthouse.
