Former Marion County prosecutor and friend of the Hammer and Nigel Show Carl Brizzi died Wednesday after suffering a stroke.

Brizzi was the prosecutor in Marion County from 2003 to 2010. Upon leaving his post in the prosecutor’s office, Brizzi went back to practice law in the private sector. He also hosted “Crime Beat with Carl Brizzi” on WIBC.

“With great sadness, our law firm confirms the passing of our friend and colleague Carl Brizzi, 53, who suffered a stroke this evening,” said Lewis and Watkins LLP, a law firm Brizzi had worked for since 2018, in a Facebook post.  Carl previously served as a federal lawyer for a Congressional investigation, was twice elected Marion Co. Prosecutor, and served his clients in private practice. He was frequently on the local news as a guest legal commentator. Carl had been with LAW since 2018. Our thoughts are with his wife and children,” the firm said on Facebook.
