Bill Morlin was a legendary investigative reporter who, over the span of five decades, exposed neo-Nazis, city mayors and con artists to the light of public scrutiny. He died Nov. 20 from complications of an intestinal infection. He was 75.
A few days before he died, when doctors removed an intubation tube, allowing him to talk again, his first words to his wife, Connie, were, “You better get a notebook and pen, to write all this stuff down.” He then proceeded to tell her who to contact about his two open investigations, and several other projects he was working on. He could not stop.
