Boy buys garage-sale camera holding photo of grandma's dead son

Correction: In a previous version of this report, Dayne Logan's city of residence was incorrectly identified. It is Columbia, Mo.

A Kansas boy who bought an old Polaroid camera at a garage sale brought home a special gift for his grandma: Inside was an image of her son, who was killed in a car crash 23 years ago.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Addison Logan, 13, went with his grandmother, Lois Logan, to several garage sales in west Wichita. At one of them, he found a Polaroid camera for sale and bought it for $1.

When he opened the camera's cartridge later back at her house, he found an old photograph and showed his grandmother, the Eagle reports.


It was a photo of her son Scott, sitting on a sofa with a high school girlfriend about 10 years before he was killed in a car accident. 

"It was really weird," Lois Logan told the Eagle. 

The Logans told the Eagle that they didn't know the people having the garage sale and the man who sold it to Addison couldn't remember where he got it. The woman in the photo married and moved away long ago, the Eagle reported.

Scott Logan was a 28-year-old divorced dad when he was killed when his car flipped during a business trip. His son, Dayne Logan, lives in Columbia, Mo., and has blogged about the discovery of the photo. Scott had been preceded in death by another brother, who also was killed in a car crash. 

“I’m just shocked,” one of Scott’s surviving brothers, Blake Logan, told the Eagle. “The more time that passes, the more in disbelief I am. So many things have to come together for that to happen. It just seems supernatural.”
