Riverside County Supervisor John Benoit passed away last night of complications from pancreatic cancer.  Benoit, who earlier this year wrapped up a term as Chair of the Board of Supervisors, suddenly announced he was cutting back on his workload last month, after he received what later would be a confirmed case of advanced pancreatic cancer.  Benoit had a long career in law enforcement before entering local elected politics.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has more on the life and career of John Benoit, and what's next for his vacant seat.
