Mike Adams Townhall Columnist Found Dead In NC Home Thursday

WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA. (THECOUNT) — Mike Adams, longtime columnist for conservative news outlet, Townhall, has been identified as the victim found dead at his North Carolina home on Thursday.

Adams, 55, was found dead at his North Carolina home on Thursday. No details surrounding his death have been released as of Friday morning.

Via Townhall:

For the last 20 years Adams appeared regularly on these pages in defense of conservative principles. But free speech and abortion were the issues he was most passionate about. Adams had long tussled with the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, where he was a professor of criminology, set to retire Aug. 1, over the opinions he expressed at Townhall, in speeches, and on social media.

Over the years I admired his courage speaking out as a conservative on a secular campus, where colleagues and students long sought his removal. So late last year I reached out about writing a feature on him for our VIP readers. Below you’ll find that story about how he came to be the conservative Christian warrior he was.

In submitting one of his last columns for us, which excoriated Governor Roy Cooper’s lockdown of North Carolina, Adams borrowed Todd Beamer’s famous words on Flight 93, “Let’s roll!”

In june, over 250 criminology professors and graduate students delivered a petition which, in part stated:

“Professor Adams hides behind the veil of ‘free speech,’ but through his rhetoric on Twitter and his column he has harassed, threatened, and spread hateful speech against students and faculty.”

Through an agreement with University of North Carolina, Adams was scheduled to retire on August 1, 2020, and was to receive a settlement of $504,702.76 which was to be paid out over the course of 5 years to cover lost salary and retirement benefits. Source Wikipedia.

Adams was born in Columbia, Missouri, and raised in Clear Lake, Texas.

A cause of death was not provided.
