Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Allean Logan was last seen on September 15, 1999, in the 4400 block of South Capitol Street, SW. When her mother went to check on her, she found her infant son alone in the apartment. No one has seen or heard from Allean since. Allean’s family says she never would have left her son alone. They say she would have taken personal items such as her cigarettes, her keys and her shoes if she planned to leave and never return. She left behind another son, as well as her mother, and eight siblings.
At the time of her disappearance, Allean was unemployed and having personal problems that many of her loved ones say may have contributed to her disappearance. Relatives say she fell in with the wrong crowd and began using drugs. She was scheduled to enter an 18-month drug rehab program before she vanished.
Police officials are examining whether Logan was a victim of foul play and whether a connection with criminal activity may have led to her disappearance. Detectives went to her apartment complex hours before she was reported missing to investigate a homicide. Her next-door neighbor, a suspected drug dealer, was found dead inside his apartment with a pillow covering his face and a bullet through his head. Initially, investigators did not think the two cases were related, but now they believe otherwise. Logan, who relatives say knew the neighbor, may have seen something that put her in danger. Police are still looking for the neighbor’s killer.
