The investigation continues into an alleged assault on the Adams County Coroner last week.

According to Adams County Sheriff Brian VonderHaar, Coroner Jim Keller was driving in his office van on Gardner Expressway near Jackson Street about 8:30 p.m. on May 10th.

Keller told deputies that someone threw a rock through an open window of the van, striking him in the head.

Keller suffered a concussion and needed three stitches to close the wound.

Keller and the county had been taking heat recently over the county’s indigent death policy. Whether this was a motive for the attack is not known.
