The Murder of Paul Logan

Paul Logan was a takeaway delivery man in the Shotley Bridge area of County Durham, but on 23rd December 1993, he was found beaten to death, after making a delivery to a farmhouse.        Mr Logan delivered for the Golden Flower takeaway, and an order had been placed for a meal to be delivered to Blue House Farm.  He arrived at the residence, despite the downpour of snow.  However, the occupants stated that they had not placed any order, so he left.  His car was later seen at the end of the track, leading to the house, with it`s lights on.  He was nowhere in sight, but at 2.15am his body was discovered in the snow, a short distance away.  He had been badly beaten.

    Fifty Police officers worked on the investigation, and as is usual, a number of people were taken in for questioning, but nobody has been charged.  The case still gets a cold case review every couple of years, with fresh appeals for anybody to come forward with information, but 21 years on, there has been no resolution to finding the killers of 25 year old Mr Logan.  As with other unsolved murders I have featured, the appeal is for anybody who knows anything to call the Police.  Killers cannot be allowed to get away with it.
