Thomas Campion displays an alleged Aryan Circle hand sign above a diamond tattoo “patch.” A researcher with the Anti-Defamation League said Campion, slain in June in Nappanee, was the leader of a national white supremacist prison gang.

NAPPANEE — Newly unsealed court records show that the suspect in a Nappanee murder called police himself, though it remains unclear whether the victim’s white supremacist activities played a role in the killing.

Aidan Burkins, 20, of Nappanee, was arrested Sept. 1 and charged with murder in connection with the June 6 shooting at Meadows Mobile Home Park. The victim, Thomas Campion, 45, died of multiple gunshot wounds.
