Memphis PD: Logan Young's Death an Accident

APRIL 13, 2006 - Posted at 2:18 p.m. CST

 

MEMPHIS, TN - Police in Memphis have concluded that millionaire and Osceola (AR) native Logan Young, first thought to have been slain, died in an accident.

Police initially described the death of the 65-year-old Young as a bloody slaying after a fierce struggle, but quit calling it a homicide a day later. 

Police Director Larry Godwin said this afternoon Young fell, striking his head on a metal stair railing and died from that injury.

Young was convicted last year of bribing a high school football coach to steer a top recruit to the University of Alabama.  He was free on bond while defense attorneys appealed the conviction. 

No arrests had been made and no suspects had been identified although family members and friends had been questioned.

Crime scene crews spent most of two days in Young's house, where police said blood or traces of blood were found in several rooms.
