The New Hanover County Sheriffs Office has ruled that UNCW Professor Mike Adams died by suicide. According to the agencys spokesperson, Lt. Jerry Brewer, after an investigation by detectives and the medical examiner, it was ascertained that Mr. Adams committed suicide with a single gunshot wound to the head. No other people were in the home and foul play is not suspected, he said.
Shortly after noon on Thursday, July 23, deputies responded to a welfare call at his home on Windsong Road in the Ogden area. The homeowner had not been seen or heard from in a couple of days, according to Lt. Brewer. Deputies at first werent able to gain access to the home due to all doors being locked. Once they were able to gain access to the home deputies found the homeowner, Mike Adams, deceased in a bedroom. Records from the 911 call revealed that a friend of Adams told the dispatcher that he had acted erratically for several weeks and was under a lot of stress.
The tenured professor of criminology and sociology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington was set to retire this week as part of a $500,000 settlement, following growing criticism for controversial social media posts he had made during his time at the university. Adams had supporters as well as detractors, including those who saw his online behavior as an exercise of his first First Amendment rights, according to prior reporting by Port City Daily. Adams classes were also popular with many of his students, earning him generally positive evaluations and several awards for teaching, according to his UNCW curriculum vitae.

Then commits suicide?
Something doesn’t add up...............
How incredibly tragic that Prof. Adams wasn’t able to seek or find help in battling whatever demons may has set upon him.
“”” following growing criticism for controversial social media posts he had made during his time at the university. “”””””””
“controversial”. Which is the title given to anything that is not far left.
I never thought he had died from natural causes.
I only recall reading Adam’s articles years ago. He was a regular poster at Townhall. I haven’t read anything from him in quite a while. I hope and pray that this isn’t true. Ill admit, suicide out of desperation seems to counter to what I always thought of him. I’m hoping there will be further investigation.
Another case of Epsteined?
Outsourcing services from Hill.
I always thought that, by committing suicide, you were helping to confirm all the negative things people say about you.
When the lawyers and governments are done with it, it's not half a million anymore, and his debts may have far exceeded that. Nobody knows.
But if he didn't leave a note, that would be strange.
It’s not true...don’t believe it.
That’s a bad post. Suicide is not prevented by having money.
What kind of fake suicide note would todays woke fascists leave?
Maybe something like....
I just cant cope with being a racist, Homophobia, transphobic, islamophobic cryptic Nazi anymore! Sincerely, a Deplorable
Sorry, don't buy the suicide narrative.
This was a Conservative Christian intelligent man, a tenured professional, a teacher, who was speaking out against liberal ideas
I absolutely dont believe he killed himself!
I’m questioning whether it was a suicide.............
I actually met Mike a decade ago. Nice guy. Kurt Schlichter reminds me of Mike.
