Former top aide to ex-Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has died after a manhunt, a lawyer said Wednesday.
Jeffrey Slavin, who was a top adviser and confidant of Hogan during his two terms as governor, was found dead Wednesday morning in a wooded area of Montgomery County, Maryland, according to attorney Stanley Brand.
Slavin had been the subject of a manhunt since Monday, when he was reported missing. Montgomery County Police said he was last seen driving a rented Buick Enclave in the area of Cedar Lane and East Gude Drive in Rockville, Maryland.
Slavin was a senior policy adviser to Hogan from 2015 to 2019. He was also a senior adviser to Gov. Bob Ehrlich from 2003 to 2007.
“We are deeply saddened by the news of Jeff's passing,” Hogan said in a statement. “He was a trusted and valued adviser who served this state and its people for many years. Our prayers and deepest sympathies are with his family during this difficult time.”
Brand said Slavin had been dealing with personal issues in recent weeks and that he appeared to have taken his own life.
“The family is devastated by this news,” Brand said in a statement. “They want to extend their heartfelt appreciation to all who have expressed their concern and support during this difficult time.”
Slavin's death is still under investigation. The Montgomery County Police Department said it does not suspect foul play.
