Will was born in Evanston, Illinois, and raised in the affluent community of Kenilworth, Illinois.[3] He attended New Trier High School, graduating in 1988. Although his grades hovered between B and C, strong performance at the entrance exams ensured Will a place at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he earned a B.A. in English.[3] Beginning in the summer of 1991, he was a regular attendee at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, the summer writing program of Naropa University. There he was influenced by activist poets Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Amiri Baraka and Diane di Prima, among others, and was a teaching assistant to Peter Lamborn Wilson (a.k.a. Hakim Bey). In 1995, after spending time at Dreamtime Village in southwest Wisconsin, he moved to New York City, stayed in various squats on the Lower East Side and finally residing in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Traveling under a tourist visa, Will had arrived in Oaxaca in early October 2006 in order to document and film the teachers' strike.[5] On October 27, he was videotaping near a barricade erected by pro-strike protesters when gunmen approached and opened fire. Will was shot twice and died while he was being carried away from the area. Along with Will, two protesters – Esteban Zurita López and teacher Emilio Alonso Fabián – were also killed. Several others were injured. Mexico City daily newspaper El Universal published photos of the suspected gunmen, who are believed to be local officials.[6][7]


Death
A Oaxaca news organization has claimed that Pedro Carmona, a local politician and member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, shot Brad Will.[8][9] During a news conference on October 29, 2006, Oaxaca mayor Manuel Martínez said that four men, all local public officials, were being detained in connection with the shooting.[10]

Corruption in Mexico makes its politicians to keep themselves out from scandals at the extent they allow or order the killing of journalists. Not proud on this, but Mexico is one of the top world's countries with high journalists killings.
