More than a year after his involvement in a devastating single-car crash, Lexington County (S.C.) coroner Harry Harman has passed away.

Harman spent the last fourteen months of his life being fed through a tube at Lexington Medical Center – just as our sources predicted last summer.

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – who is from Lexington County – never declared a vacancy in Harman’s case. As a result, Harman’s deputy Randy Martin has been running the office ever since the 78-year-old’s February 2013 accident.

Harman is one of several county officials rumored to be involved in the “Lexington Ring,” a cabal of crooked cops and corrupt politicians allegedly running an illegal video poker operation (and various other shady endeavors) out of their government offices. In fact Harman has been accused of failing to conduct an autopsy in the suspicious death of the wife of a local solicitor (who is also rumored to be a “ring” leader).

No word yet on when the living “ring” leaders will be held accountable for their actions …

So is the coroner going to issue a report on the coroner’s death?

No, but the coroner will probably issue a statement to the state on his death.

Given the numerous death reports released to local media that quoted Mr Harman, even though he was reportedly bedridden at the time, it would appear that anything is possible.

Shit, he’s been dead for the past year, the Lexington county mafia just refused to acknowledge it.

I guess it would have been too much to wait a day or two after he died to slam his character. I don’t doubt the validity of what is written, but timing is completely trailer park. Got to love the political chattering class in SC.

If a person didn’t respect him when he was alive, in the immortal words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference does it make” if the same people don’t respect him when he’s dead.

Harry was such a scumbag. Pure Lexington County trash from the word Go. I am hopeful it’s not too hot down there, Harry. Thank the Good Lord that your wife raised your two daughters right.

If you make your bread and butter throwing mud against the wall, every now and again something will stick. If it doesn’t bother your conscience that 90% of the time you will cast out rumors that don’t prove to be true, then this might be an okay way to make a living. It is the highest form of irony for a character with no ethical boundaries to call the ethics of others into question. Even still, I would expect a little decency to displayed when a family loses a loved one. I didn’t know Harry, but I do know his children and grandchildren. They are lovely folks and certainly don’t deserve this. You should all be embarrassed.

I agree w/ your comments. The Harman family just lost a loved one. Lay off the rough comments – the gentleman’s funeral hasn’t even been held yet.

I agree, the least everyone can do is wait for him to be buried before dancing on his grave.

Please read the obituary for this guy. What a line up of honorary pall bearers and actual pall bearers. Lexington County should be proud this list has been published.

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

I don’t want to get into it…but a lot of what FITS printed makes FITS look like Dirt…

Maybe you always wanted to be a journalist, and this is what you have to do, to generate your income…But I’d rather starve than stoop as you low as you stoop…and so often you sink to the depths gratuitously (not because you have to)…
