Sellers, 60, former Franklin resident, who retired last year after a long career as a journalist, was found dead in a municipal swimming pool nears his home in Seal Beach, California. Because he was an expert swimmer, a pathology report is pending. He was born July 1, 1943 in Indianapolis, and graduated from Franklin High School in 1961.

Following graduation from the Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 1966, he went to work at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and later returned to the Chicago area to join the staff of the Chicago Daily News. One of his articles written about the Chicago School Board is included in the book, Done in a Day, published by the Daily News to celebrate 100 years of great writing. He left the Daily News to become city editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and later accepted a position with the Los Angeles Times. He helped cover the Los Angeles riots in May 1992, for which the entire staff received a Pulitzer Prize for the spot news. He is survived by wife Karen Wilke Sellers; daughter Joy S. Marschall, North Fork, California; sons Gregory Sellers, Austin, TX and Michael Sellers, Seal Beach; parents John V. Sellers and Sara Louise Sellers of Franklin, IN; brother Robert H.
