Trooper Charles Campbell was shot and killed after being abducted while making a traffic stop in Perry, Florida.

After taking Trooper Campbell hostage the suspect used the patrol car siren to pull over a motorist and take his car. Trooper Campbell was found tied up and shot to death in Georgia along with the motorist. The suspect was later shot and killed by a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent after he tried to gain control of another officer's weapon after being arrested.

It was later discovered that the suspect was a spree killer responsible for at least 18 murders, including Trooper Campbell, beginning in July of that same year.

Trooper Campbell had served with the Florida Highway Patrol for nine years.

Granddaddy Campbell,
Your legacy has touched many lives, including myself. Even though I have never met you, I take pride in knowing my granddaddy was such a honorable man! Now I have two great men in my lives that have followed in your foot steps! (Charles & Garrett Campbell) I love you! :)
