AG: ‘Person of interest’ in unsolved murder of New Hampshire couple arrested in Vermont

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. — A wanted fugitive who was arrested in Vermont is a “person of interest” in the unsolved murder of a couple in Concord, New Hampshire, authorities said.

Logan Clegg, a homeless man also wanted in Utah, was arraigned Thursday in Chittenden Superior Court as a fugitive from justice, according to the South Burlington Police Department.

Clegg was spotted in the area of the South Burlington Public Library and he was taken into custody by Concord and South Burlington police officers, as well as Vermont state troopers.

Clegg is the subject of an investigation into the deaths of 67-year-old Stephen and 66-year-old Djeswende Reid, who were found fatally shot in the area of the Broken Ground Trails in Concord on April 21, 2022, according to New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella and Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood.

The bodies of Stephen and Djeswende were riddled with multiple gunshot wounds, according to investigators.

Clegg also had an arrest warrant that stems from Cache County, Utah, for the alleged felony possession of stolen property.

Concord detectives told the Vermont court Clegg is a suspect in their double murder case writing to the judge, “Clegg is considered highly dangerous, and is a transient male with no ties to the community.” And continues by saying that “On October 11, 2022, Concord PD received information that Clegg purchased a one—way plane ticket from JFK Airport at 0030 on 10/14/22 heading to Berlin”.

Boston 25 has also learned Clegg went to Portugal for several months while his Utah case was pending.

People back in the Reid’s neighborhood were hopeful for an arrest. “I hope he’s the guy because I would like to see him put behind bars,” said Tr.acy Bureau. “It’s good to know they are on, that they are doing something about it,” said Seth Newton. “I hope for their family they find out and there is some justice,” said Kevin Doran. The Reid’s friend says this case has been nothing but baffling. “Steve played a very important role in our lives, in our community, and in our country so his passing is a great pain to us,” said Vangehn.

Clegg has not been charged with the murders but If that does happen, officials said there would be an extradition process and he would be taken back to New Hampshire for an arraignment.
