Logan Mwangi: CCTV shows events following child’s death

This is the moment the stepdad of Logan Mwangi and a youth were caught on CCTV carrying the dead boy’s body out of their family home.

The lifeless five-year-old would be dumped in a river just minutes later.

Grainy footage taken from Angharad Williamson’s home in Sarn, Bridgend, was a key piece of evidence used to convict his mum, stepdad John Cole, and the youth of murder, Wales Online reports.

Williamson, 31, and Cole, 40, were found guilty of murder, as well as a 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

At 2.43am on July 31, 2021, Cole could be seen leaving the flat and appeared to be carrying something depicted as a light-coloured cross. This was in fact Logan’s arms dangling across his killer’s back.

As Cole crossed the road to make his way to Pandy Park just yards away he was immediately followed by the youth. It would have been obvious to him what Cole was carrying.

The pair entered the park and turned left before walking along the River Ogmore until they reached a sewer pipe.

It was at this secluded spot where Logan was dumped like rubbish and left in the cold running water until he was discovered the next day by police officers. He was barefoot and wearing mismatched pajamas.

After dumping the little boy’s body Cole and the youth then casually walked back to Lower Llansantffraid and arrived back at the flat at 2.51am.

It came as Logan’s mum was exposed as a lying killer by CCTV showing she was awake while the five-year-old’s body was being dumped in a river.

Williamson claimed she slept through on the night of Logan’s murder having taken a cocktail of prescription medication – and only woke up to find him missing the following morning.

She hysterically wailed down the phone after dialing 999 to say Logan was not inside the family home and the back door was open.

But CCTV from a neighboring property captured movements from the ground floor flat – including Cole and the youth leaving at 2.43am to dump Logan’s body in the river.

Just a minute after the pair left the house the CCTV showed lights in Logan’s bedroom being turned on and someone inside opening his bedroom curtains.

Williamson claimed it could not have been her as she was asleep – but she was the only adult inside the house.

Cole and the youth were outside the flat for almost nine minutes before returning to retrieve Logan’s torn pajama top – which Cole said Williamson handed to him to get rid of as it could be incriminating.

In the period of time the pair were out of the house the curtains in Logan’s room are closed once again and the lights are switched off.

Prosecutors had alleged he had been subjected to a “brutal and sustained assault” prior to his death, during which he suffered more than 56 injuries.
