LOGAN'S DONE

Gay Porn Star Josh Logan Charged With Murdering A Dude Three Years Ago

josh-loganJohn Snavely, better known to gay porn aficionados as Josh(ua) Logan or straight porn pervs as (Johnny) Champ, was charged with the  2010 stabbing death of one Sam Del Brocco on Thursday in Pompano Beach, FL.

Snavely, 26, is currently being held in jail in St. Lucie County for violating his probation. In addition, he’s been charged with the second degree murder of Del Brocco. Broward Sheriff investigators found physical evidence linking Snavely to the murder in the victim’s home and car, indicating a violent struggle.

“To realize that the whole fight may have taken place on three different floors, it’s a horrific thing,” Greg Czarnecki, a friend of Del Brocco, told CBS Miami. “Someone was bound and determined that they were not going to leave until Sam was dead.”

Authorities are still searching for a motive, though they believe Snavely may have stabbed Del Brocco over money. Though he was married for over 30 years to his wife Jan Shaffer, detectives discovered that Del Brocco possibly led a secret life while out of town in his role as president and ceo of PCI Communications in Washington, D.C., as well as at his beach condo in Pompano Beach.

Hours before he was murdered on September 11, 2010, investigators believe Del Brocco stopped in at one or two gay bars, where he may have picked up Snavely. Del Brocco’s bloody corpse was found a day later in his condo’s master bedroom.

It sounds as if everyone’s soft-shoeing around the idea that this Sam Del Brocco picked up this John Snavely, aka Josh Logan aka Johnny Champ for, ostensibly, some gay shit, and Snavely cum Logan cum Champ — after leaving his “physical evidence” all over the place — killed Del Brocco for stiffing him. But that is, of course, speculation, so we’re moving on.

[Ed. note: None of the following links are SFW…like at all.]

Snavely was part of the Jet Set stable of men as Josh Logan, though he moonlighted in straight porn and as an exotic dancer, particularly for the notorious lady jizzfests, Dancing Bear. Meanwhile, an astute reader pointed out to us that TheDirty.com ran a story on Snavely shortly after the murder, discussing his criminal record:

…famous forgy pornstar who also does straight porn to try and cover his forgy tracks. He is a felon who actually lives in San Antonio and is on probation but flies into miami to film his porn on a weekly. He would be in jail in a heartbeat if they knew this. Also he is a woman harasser and beater…this guy thinks he is god’s gift to women and treats them like sh*t when he gets dissed by them, he acts like a complete psycho. He also recently filmed a porn called the “Jersey Score” where he played Ronnie..lmao. this loser needs to be humiliated and sent back to texas where he belongs…not miami..where he is going to eventually hit a girl.  I wonder what his parents and family are going to think about this?

They probably think now that the gay porn past was the least of his troubles. Then again, he is from Texas.

    it ain’t called ROUGH TRADE for no reason

  • Mikey

    I think it’s a bit offensive to refer to the victim of a murder as a “dude” in the headline.

  • Tackle

    Wow! TheDirty.com was on ths money with that blank item story. I have often wondered how accurate that different sites can be when dealing with blind item stories.

  • niles

    Moral: don’t try to stiff a hustler.

  • CXXX1

    If they had all this evidence why did it take 3 years??? If he is a felon his they have his finger prints and DNA in the system so why did it take so long? This is weird. Especially since Addison from SC killed a guy with his GF and they were caught pretty quickly, so how does this go on for all this time?

  • hyhybt

    What, ANOTHER one?

  • litper

    That’s what happens when you let “straight” (i.e. insecure bisexuals) people in gay porn. Justy like Luca Magnotta who murdered and ate his male partner because of his “straight” guilt. Enough of “straight” fetish!

  • psguy

    @Mikey: I find and hope others find making reference to victim of a serious crime as this as a ‘dude’. Shows sarcasm, lack of respect using a poor choice of words leading to a poorly – example this “article”.

  • Shadeaux

    DAMN! What the hell are they lacing that lube with! Those porn stars are dangerous!

  • LeNair Xavier

    So this guy was gay-for-pay and part of Jet Set’s stable of models. Not at all a surprise that he was part of Jet Set since hiring “gay-for-pay” guys seems to have become Jet Set Men director Chris Steele’s new drug for some time.

    Also not surprising is his violent streak, for far too many gay-for-pay porn actors have proven to have one as I repeatedly pointed out in and since the following blog post I wrote years ago.

  • queerbec

    They could have said “FL man” or DC Exec” instead of “a dude” which is so identity-reducing. Seems like Queerty’s passing some sort of judgment.

  • TheMarc

    “Then again, he is from Texas.” – What exactly does that have to do with the prior statement? Anyway, yet again…I am not surprised by the behavior of these G4P guys. Their ability to rationalize performing in gay porn or for the pleasure of gay men does not come from some latent homosexual desire, at least not in the majority of cases. These guys have the ability to justify any action so long as it gets them what they want aka sociopaths. I lot of these guys say they don’t care about what other people think about them. Newsflash, that’s not a sign of cool, that’s a symptom of an antisocial personality disorder; the type that most of the people in prison, serial killers, Wall Street criminals and tyrants possess. There’s a difference in being yourself and doing what you want with little regard for anyone else.

  • Tubesock

    A broken record in So Fla; Rich, top of the world alpha male makes a down low booty stop in Lauderdale and still thinks he’s the shit by waving some cash or coke around. Then treats his ‘new best friends’ like shit or ends up so high a Girl Scout could rob & rape him. That town’ll chew you up faster than Vegas or NY or LA if you aren’t wary of what goes on there every night.

    Hard for my pity meter to go off here. For either of them.

  • fredo777

    TheDirty is just that. Filth.

  • demetreus

    Hmmmmm….not ONE comment about the RACE of the killer….
    Interesting…

  • Teleny

    Gay for pay guys seem to have serious mental issues.

  • tchuy03

    Enjoy cause now u have to put out for free!

  • frickeepoo

    How weird because just yesterday I was watching the Ramon Navarro marathon on TCM and read about how in 1968 he was murdered by two hustlers he ordered from some upscale H’wood callboy service. They were convinced there was 70K hidden somewhere in Navarro’s home so they tortured him to find out where. Navarro choked on his own blood and died. There was no money stashed in the house. They wound up being released from prison in about the same amount of time as Dan White did. One wonders what a Florida jury is going to give this white-bred hetero-identified jock who was tragically lured into the gay-porn underworld and exploited. You just know his defense is gonna see if it’ll fly. And knowing Florida juries,anything goes.

  • MrsPatrickCampbell

    Are there nude photos of Miss Josh presenting hole?

  • MrsPatrickCampbell

    Once she is in the Big House she will experience the pain and the pleasure of satisfying the black man!

  • litper

    @Patrick

    he’ll be gay and noone will pay him for that!

  • susansylvester

    just as Rebecca responded I’m surprised that any body can earn $8431 in four weeks on the computer. did you see this website >>> http://www.work35.com.

  • Lg2983

    @Mikey: agreed

  • dvlaries

    Maybe he’ll end up in the same cell with Jason Addison Andrews. Idol’s still in, isn’t he?

  • Bob LaBlah

    I must say this: he was a nice looking guy. Unfortunately, that was also his downfall. These kids who do porn and sell themselves online at young ages DO develop a mentality where they think they are gods gift to gay men. Though I wasn’t there I would NOT be surprised to learn that once he saw this guys condo he decided to up the price, after it (sex) was over.

    I guess he has discovered by now that those brown streaks in the seat of his BVD’s were not gold after all.

  • seaguy

    It seems like gay for pay or outside of porn guys who claim to be straight yet will gay escort or be hanging out with only gay men is that they are only in it for financial gain which can be in the form of money, drugs, gifts, whatever and they eventually figure out that there are closeted or lonely men who out there seeking companionship from guys like them and they get used to being able to manipulate and swindle these men. But when one of those men finally calls them on it they are so taken aback by someone questioning their motives that they fly into a rage and the result is cases like this. It’s as if they become so addicted to being the sought after prize for these men who use their services that it becomes incredulous for someone to question them at all.

  • GeriHew

    Just for the record this John Snavely guy appeared in gay and straight porn using the stage name Josh(ua) Logan, and sometimes as “Champ” in some straight porn from 2010 to 2011
    http://www.iafd.com/person.rme/perfid=JoshuaLogan/gender=m/Joshua-Logan.htm

    Johnny Champ appears to be a straight only performer who started his career in 2012

    Is it actually the same person or two different people?

  • Terence

    crackheads. smh.

  • Becky Sharp

    Show of hands, how many of you queens would still get on your knees, suck his dick, swallow and thank him for the favor? (To those of you who didn’t raise your hands: Liars!)

  • Becky Sharp

    @hyhybt: Because we fags will get on our knees for anybody we think is hot, that’s why you silly queen :-)

  • dvlaries

    As I recall the etiquette of prostitution, you don’t take your hire to your own home (where your belongings will be displayed and tempting), and you don’t go to theirs (where you can easily be set up for blackmail or worse): you go to neutral territory like a motel. This is a business transaction and you don’t fall in love either. You pay the money, you get your nut, and the ‘affair’ is over. And you carry only as much cash as needed for the services negotiated.

    Hustler magazine was passing out that advice to men 30 years ago. Still sounds workable to me, and the gender combo is immaterial.

  • hyhybt

    @Becky Sharp: Speaking only for myself, knowing that he’s (apparently) done this makes him much less hot.

    @dvlaries: Sounds like the sort of thing that would be common sense if it were common to think things through far enough to come up with them.

  • Suppyitsme

    I’ve know him for a while now ..really well. He was not the violent type . The dirty is all bitter girls talking shit. None of it is true. He was incredible intelligent and good hearted . He only wanted to help his family . IF he even did it, it was definitely out of self defense , he was not that type.

  • dvlaries

    Beginning last year, it’s come to feel if three months go by and these pages don’t report the tragic young demise (by illness or suicide) or lockup of some porn star, there’s something wrong with the clocks.
    *
    Last year -in one year- it was Sergio Real, Nathan Price, Roman Ragazzi, Tanner Hayes, Josh Weston, Adam Faust and Erik Rhodes – all dead, as well as Jason ‘Addison’ Andrews going away for life without parole, first-degree murder.
    *
    This year it’s the suicides of Arpad Miklos and Wilfried Knight, barely a month a part, and now Logan’s murder charge. And there’s four and a half months to go.

  • dvlaries

    @CXXX1: >>
    If they had all this evidence why did it take 3 years??? If he is a felon his they have his finger prints and DNA in the system so why did it take so long? This is weird. Especially since Addison from SC killed a guy with his GF and they were caught pretty quickly, so how does this go on for all this time?<<

    I don't know what DNA was found at the Abrahamsen murder scene, but Addison (Jason Andrews) and Amanda Logue helped the police enormously by texting their plans for the murder ("just get him face down and relaxed," "keep eyes for a knife") and continued texting after. Further, they put activity on Abrahamsen's credit card, and dead men typically don't need improvement supplies from Home Depot.
    *
    And even then, the police work wasn't that expeditious. Three days after the May 15, 2010 murder, both were picked up for attempted shoplifting but let go on insufficient evidence. Both unconcerned, she went back to her husband and child in Georgia, and he headed to Tennessee and got himself a job in an upscale poolhall. Neither was caught up with and in custody for Abrahamsen's murder until mid-July. Most creepily, two of Addison's gay clips (for Unglory Hole & Extra Big Dicks) have production dates just two weeks before he turned killer.

    This link has Logue being read hell by one of Abrahamsen's relatives in court, and she looks like no one's porn star anymore

    like Steven implied I didnt know that a single mom able to profit $6094 in one month on the internet. did you read this web page.w­w­w.w­o­r­k­3­5.c­o­m

  • Spike

    @queerbec: Wow, that would be a first!

  • Spike

    @Suppyitsme: HA HA HA, well done, though you left out the part where you just accidentally mention that you too work in porn and how unfair it is for everyone to judge and jump to conclusions that everyone in porn is a psycho murderer or depressed and on the verge of suicide.
