Logan R. Johnston
After a three-month investigation, North Platte police arrested Logan Johnston Tuesday for his role in the death of Chandler Snyder, 17.
Snyder was found dead on Nov. 2 in a small camper parked next to a house on the east side of North Platte, near the corner of Phillip and Griffith. An autopsy was conducted, as well as toxicology tests. The tests indicated the death was accidental, caused by acute ethanol intoxication, police spokesman Rodney Brown said Wednesday.
Johnston, 19, is charged with procuring for a minor, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Johnston was processed and then released from the Lincoln County Jail to await trial, Brown said.
