Fugitive Logan Levar Clegg has been arrested concerning the murder of a married couple.
Stephen and Djeswende Reid were found dead in the woods of Concord, New Hampshire, in April. They were missing for the past couple of days.
Nearly six months after the death, the person of interest has finally been caught and arrested by the Police. He was recently living in South Burlington, Vermont.
Logan Levar Clegg Arrest: The Reids Murder Suspect
Logan Levar Clegg, 26, was arrested and formally charged on Wednesday with the death of Stephen and Djeswende Reid on April 18, 2022. The New Hampshire state attorney John M. Formella’s general office has confirmed the arrest.
Logan, a transient homeless man, was arrested in Vermont and held on a warrant charging him with two counts of second-degree murder. The warrant was provided to Vermont authorities and used to arrest Logan on a charge of being a fugitive from justice, charging him with the murders.
Detectives from the Concord Police Department, who are investigating the slaying of the Concord couple, told Logan had been seen on Williston Road, South Burlington, Vermont.
Besides, Logan is also wanted in Utah in felony possession of stolen property case, for which he is on probation. The Associated Press reports that he recently lost an appeal to the Vermont Supreme Court to be released on bail.
The charged man is being held at the Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans, Vermont, where he has been housed on an unrelated theft charge since October 12, 2022.
Logan’s arraignment on the fugitive from the justice charge in Vermont is expected to occur on Thursday, October 20, at the Franklin County Superior Court in St. Albans. Following his arraignment, New Hampshire authorities will seek his extradition to New Hampshire.
Who Were Stephen and Djeswende Reid?
Stephen Reid, 67, and Djeswende Reid, 66, were a retired married couple from Concord, New Hampshire. Stephen was a native of Concord and was married to his wife, Djeswende, for almost four decades. They were living at the Alton Woods apartment complex.
One afternoon, they went out for a walk. When they missed a planned event, family members found it strange. They had last seen the couple on Easter Sunday and communicated with them on Monday.
They reported the pair missing a day later. A massive search mission was undertaken by dozens of Police officers, including the Central NH Special Operations Unit, Concord SWAT team, and New Hampshire State Police troopers.
The search spanned from Loudon Road and Concord Heights to East Concord and the Broken Ground trail system, specifically, the Marsh Loop Trail. We do not know what exactly led the Police to the area.
Authorities also released a composite sketch of the person of interest in May and announced a $50,000 reward for information in July.
After days of checking vehicle registrations, speaking to residents, searching the area, using K-9 units, and spending time on the trail, the bodies were found.
The dead bodies of the Reid couple were found in a wooded area near the Broken Ground Trails in Concord on April 21. Both suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
The state’s medical examiner ruled the deaths of the Reids to be a double homicide due to “multiple gunshot wounds.” They were reportedly killed a few days ago, on April 18.
The cause of the homicide is yet to be known, and the Concord community has consistently said they are anxious for answers.
