The man accused of committing the only murder in the history of Logan Lake has died, months before his trial was set to begin.
Gordon James Fleming, 67, who was charged with murdering an acquaintance in a Logan Lake motel room last year, died on Friday, June 7, of cancer.
David James Fast, 55, was killed in a room at the Copper Valley Motel on March 1, 2018. He was stabbed to death.
The murder was the first recorded homicide in Logan Lake, a town of about 2,000, located about 45 minutes southwest of Kamloops.
Fleming was arrested at the motel. Investigators said at the time that the two men were known to one another.
