KOKOMO (Nov. 7, 2013) – A Kokomo man has been sentenced after admitting he killed his friend and stuffed his body inside an unplugged freezer.

Walter Logan, 53, was sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to reckless homicide in the 2012 death of 29-year-old Alex Shipp. After the two had a fight, Logan bound Shipp’s hands and feet and put duct tape over his mouth and nose.

Logan then went to sleep; when he woke up, he realized Shipp was dead and placed his body inside an old freezer.

Shipp had been missing for a month.  According to court documents, the fight between the two men started after a night of drinking and drugs.
