Andy Sullivan Arrested For Murder


Date:                April 19, 2011

Time:                2:15 PM


On April 8, 2011 the Levy County Sheriff's Office received a call from Gary "Andy" Andrew Sullivan at 6430 N.W. 170th Street Trenton, Fl.  Sullivan stated that his girlfriend, Summer Lynn Keller allegedly got into an argument with a relative on the phone earlier in the day.  Sullivan stated that he and Keller then argued over the contents of the conversation with Sullivan's relative.


Sullivan alleges that after his argument with Keller he spoke to a friend on the phone.  After Sullivan's phone call with the friend he allegedly started looking for Keller and he is unable to locate her.  Sullivan states that he looks throughout the residence and then goes outside to look for Keller to no avail.


Sullivan said that when he turned the porch light on, he saw Keller standing by a tree.  Sullivan advised that when Keller did not respond he walked to Keller & found her hanging from the tree.  Sullivan claimed that he ran back to the residence and retrieved a knife and cut Keller down and called 9-1-1.


Through the testimony of witnesses, Sullivan's inconsistent statements, Medical Examiner's Office reports and the forensic evidence; the crime scene does not support Sullivan's statements.  According to forensic evidence, the alleged instrument used to hang Ms Keller was not the cause of her death.  The Medical Examiner's Office has ruled the death a homicide.


Sullivan is well known by law enforcement and has a violent history.  On April 16, 2008 Sullivan was sentenced to the State of Florida Department of Corrections for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. 


On April 19, 2011 Investigator Jimmy Anderson arrested Sullivan for second degree murder and he was transported to the Levy County Jail.
