Memphis Police Now Backing Off Homicide Theory in Death of Millionaire from Osceola

APRIL 13, 2006 - Posted at 8:03 a.m. CST

 

MEMPHIS, TN - Police in Memphis are now backing off use of the word "homicide" in the death of a wealthy businessman from Osceola (AR).

Officers are now calling the case of Logan Young a "death investigation."

There's still no motive or arrest in the case.  The method of death also has not been determined.

A police statement yesterday did not explain the change or whether investigators are considering possibilities other than murder.

Young was found dead at his Memphis residence Tuesday and police said at the time he apparently died during a violent, bloody struggle.

The 65-year-old Young was convicted last year of paying a high school coach to steer a football recruit to the University of Alabama.  He was sentenced to six months in prison but was free pending appeal.

Young was well-known in top social circles of Memphis as a boisterous, hard-partying football fan and heavy drinker.  He had a reputation, too, for helping friends and associates in financial need.

Young was also a generous booster and donor to the athletic programs at Osceola High School.
