NCAA football: Ala. police not ready to say booster was slain

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Police backed off calling the death of an Alabama football booster a homicide yesterday, a day after investigators said he died in a fierce, bloody struggle.

A police statement referred to a continuing “death investigation” and said a ruling from the medical examiner into the cause and manner of death was pending.

The statement did not explain the change or whether investigators were considering possibilities other than murder. A police spokesman did not return a call last night.

Logan Young, who was convicted last year of bribing a high school football coach, was found dead at his Memphis home Tuesday. No arrests had been made and no suspects had been identified.

“We’re still waiting on the medical examiner’s report,” police Sgt. Vince Higgins said. “And quite frankly, right now, even if she ruled it a murder, we wouldn’t have probable cause enough to charge anyone.”

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
