There’s long been talk of Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill running for higher office.
He’s a four-term, law-and-order prosecutor most known, of late, for his office’s prosecution on felony murder charges of the Elkhart Four, four teens involved in a bungled 2012 robbery attempt. The startled owner of the home the teens were robbing shot and killed one of their accomplices, leading to the charges against the youthful offenders, later reduced to burglary by the Indiana Supreme Court.
Hill late last month formed an exploratory committee to look into the notion of running for Indiana Attorney General then formally announced in Indianapolis on Dec. 7 that yes, indeed, he would run. Me being in Elkhart and Hill unavailable for comment, I did what I could to put together an article that day:
He returned to Elkhart and I interviewed him last Friday, writing up the piece that same day. Turns out he’s previously been approached about running for the U.S. House:
- “Elkhart County Prosecuting Attorney and Indiana attorney general candidate Curtis Hill approached previously about seeking higher office. Now he’s running,” Dec. 12, 2015
Looks like Election ’16 is gearing up.
