Assistant principal in Alabama arrested and charged for triple homicide from a decade ago

An assistant principal from Alabama, Keante Harris, has been arrested and charged in connection with a triple murder case in Georgia back in 2013. According to WVTM, Harris, who currently works at McAdory Middle School, is one of the four suspects now linked to the long-standing cold case.

On May 8, Harris voluntarily surrendered himself to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in response to a fugitive of justice warrant. The warrant had been issued by authorities in Clayton County, Georgia.

Kevin Harris, Derrell Adams, and Kenneth Thompson have been identified as the other three suspects connected to the triple murder. They are currently in custody.

According to a statement by Clayton County Sheriff Levon Allen, officers from the Union City Police Department were conducting general patrol duties in the vicinity of Interstate I-85 (Fulton County) on January 13, 2013. During their patrol, they came across a 2010 Dodge Charger that appeared to be abandoned.

Four suspects are facing charges of three counts of murder/malice. Superintendent Dr. Walter Gonsoulin confirmed Harris’ employment with the Jefferson County Schools system, as reported by WVTM.

“We are currently in the process of gathering information regarding the specific details of this situation,” Gonsoulin stated. “Although it is still early, it appears that the charges being brought against this individual are unrelated to their employment with Jefferson County Schools.”

According to Gonsoulin, Harris has been put on paid administrative leave as per the standard procedure of the school system. Gonsoulin also mentioned that they will take further action based on the available facts and in accordance with the district’s policy.

In a recent social media post, Harris revealed that he began his career as an educator back in 2006, according to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Additionally, he mentioned that he joined the Jefferson County Schools as an employee in 2018.
