School: no indication of financial impropriety by Avila father

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

There is no indication of “financial impropriety” at Carrollwood Day School, where the father investigators say killed his family last week had been treasurer, the school said in a statement on Tuesday.

“There are extensive checks and balances and protocols in place to ensure the security of all school bank accounts and accounting/financial records,” the school said in a written statement. “A complete financial audit of the school is conducted by a professional accounting firm on an annual basis.”

After a fire at the family’s home in the Avila community, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office determined that Darrin Campbell had shot his wife and two children, then set the house on fire and killed himself.

Looking for clues of a motive, investigators are conducting a financial audit on Campbell, a business executive who has held several jobs in the Tampa Bay area.

A representative for the company where Campbell worked, VASTEC, said the company is not conducting its own investigation and has no reason to believe there are any improprieties in Campbell’s work.

Campbell requested a leave of absence from his job as chief operating officer of VASTEC on Monday, two days before the murders and fire.
