Family Mourns Murdered Father As Police Search For Killer

As police search for the man who they say murdered a 22 year old Lexington father, family and friends of Anthony Logan remembered him Monday night, by lighting candles and sharing memories.

As Logan's sister sang during the vigil, his brothers and sisters held each other, realizing there are only eight of them now. Their family is broken. Logan is gone.

"He always smiled, never was sad, would give anybody anything. He loved his family, every single one," says Logan's sister, April Raglin.

About 50 people gathered, in the same place where Logan was gunned down 48 hours earlier, in front of his sister's apartment on Cambridge Drive. They lit candles, left notes, and prayed together.

While they remember Logan, police are still searching--looking for the man they say shot him to death, 28 year old Brandon Bailey. Family says the two got into a fight just before midnight.

"I just feel like when you do something to somebody else, just expect the unexpected is going to happen to you ten times worse," says Logan's sister, Regina Oxendine.

"The anger I have.... he got killed in front of my other sister. She shouldn't have to live through that. She's going to be traumatized for the rest of her life," Raglin says.

Logan's family doesn't want to talk about his suspected killer. Monday night was about remembering the young father of three, the brother who was carefree and happy. They lean on each other to get through this nightmare.

"Strength. What little we have. It's not that much. But with the little we do have, we're getting by," Oxendine says.

If you have any information about where Bailey may be, call police.
