Reports: Arrest made in murder of Gulf High principal

MADISON COUNTY — A teen has been arrested in the homicide investigation of former Gulf High School principal Ed Campbell, according to the Madison Enterprise-Recorder.

Gary Leonard Givens, 18, was arrested early Wednesday in connection with the weekend murder, the newspaper reports. Charges against him include homicide, burglary, grand theft, theft and credit card fraud. Charges are currently pending on a second suspect in the case, the newspaper reports.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office did not have any information immediately available.

Campbell, 75, was discovered dead Saturday inside his rural north Florida home after deputies received a call to check on him. He was a teacher, coach and principal at Gulf High in the 1970s. Campbell was from Madison County and moved back there after retiring from Pasco schools, though he reconnected with many in the community in 2008, when Gulf High invited him to attend a reunion.
