Friends and Coworkers Remember Homicide Victim

A son is charged with his grandmother's death and could possibly be charged with his mothers' death as well. Nineteen year-old Steven Tyler Logan turned himself into police Sunday and he's now charged with murder.

Logan is the son of Vicki Logan and grandson of Wanda Faye Turner. Their bodies were discovered inside Turner's home Friday afternoon. Police issued a warrant for Logan's arrest Saturday, he turned himself in Sunday.

Vicki Logan's co-workers thought something may have been wrong when she didn't show up for work on Friday so Bryan Scott, one of her coworkers and best friends, went to her home to discover she was dead then called police. NewsChannel 11's Kealey McIntire spoke with him and has his story.

Bryan has known Vicki Logan and her family for years. They had breakfast and lunch together almost everyday and their desks at work were only 10 feet apart. So imagine his surprise when he went to her home Friday afternoon only to find his best friend and co-worker was dead.

Vicki Logan's desk is left untouched at CapRock Plans and friends and co-workers now reflect on her memory and why her chair is now empty.

Liz Franco said, "It's been a hard, sad day. We've all gathered together and we've prayed together and we're missing her."

Fourteen other employees shared the small health insurance office, most of them worked in the same room as Logan, however, Bryan Scott was closest to Logan emotionally.

"She was silly," remembered Scott. "There was never a dull moment where we didn't laugh throughout the day and that's what I'll miss most about her."

Logan cared for her mother, Wanda Faye Turner, because of heart problems, so Scott got to know her as well. "She's just as sweet as she can be, everybody's grandma. She liked to have her hair done on Friday's. She was a special lady as well."

It was Scott who went to Logan's house Friday afternoon when she didn't show up for work. That's where he found Logan's son Tyler.

Scott went to check on his friend because she hadn't shown up to work yet. While he was at her house, Tyler came out of the garage and they spoke. Scott says the only reason he thinks Tyler may have killed his mother and grandmother is out of sheer anger.

Scott said Tyler and his mother had been having some problems for the past several months, but he never thought those problems would end in tragedy. "Just being on the scene, it was very traumatic and surreal. It felt like a foggy day."

A Musical Legacy Left Behind

Murder victim Vicki Logan was a familiar name in the 70's and 80's. She was known by Vicki Turner then and was recording music at Don Caldwell Studios in Lubbock. She later moved to Nashville.

Bob Hudnall met Vicki in the 70's and took photos of her and designed the album cover for Vicki's album, titled "Lily White." He says "She was a really good singer and beautiful girl. I just can't believe what's happened to her. I visited with her practically everyday. I talked to her on the phone or would send her an e-mail and she would e-mail me back. It's going to be an empty spot. I just wish we could have her back."

Turner recorded Lily White with other Lubbock musicians including Don Caldwell, Kenny and Lloyd Maines.
