Video: Logan's mother feigns ignorance after murdering five-year-old

Crocodile tears of little Logan’s evil mother: How remorseless privately-educated stockbroker’s daughter feigned ignorance and tears after murdering five-year-old and faked panic on 999 call

  • Angharad Williamson, 31, pretended to be unaware of what happened to Logan 
  • She was convicted alongside John Cole, 40, and a youth of killing five-year-old
  • Police bodycam footage shows the mother hysterically wailing after dialing 999
  • In a tearful display Williamson said she slept through the night of Logan’s murder
  • But her case was undone by CCTV evidence capturing movements from her flat

This is the moment Logan Mwangi’s mother feigned ignorance and tears after murdering the five-year-old and faking panic on a 999 call.

Angharad Williamson, 31, hysterically wailed and fell to the floor while pretending to be unaware of what happened to Logan in Bridgend, Wales, last July.

She was convicted alongside John Cole, 40, of killing Logan at Cardiff Crown Court today while a teenage boy, who cannot be named because of his age, was also found guilty of murder.

Police bodycam footage played to the court shows her pacing around her kitchen while demanding to know why Logan was unconscious after dialling 999 to say he was not inside the family home and the back door was open.

Cole was caught on CCTV carrying Logan’s limp body from the flat across a playing field towards the River Ogmore where he was found by police shortly after dawn on July 31. 

Throughout much of her evidence Williamson portrayed herself as a victim – a mother grieving for her son who had been subjected to an oppressive relationship from Cole.

In a tearful display Williamson told how she slept through the night of Logan’s murder, having taken a cocktail of prescription medication for epilepsy and depression.

But her case was undone by CCTV evidence which showed lights being turned on and off in the family home at a time when she was the only one inside.

On the morning of July 31 last year the once ‘smiling, cheerful little boy’ (pictured), was found by police just 250 metres from his home submerged in the River Ogmore

Footage shows Williamson screaming at Cole ‘Why am I not allowed to see my own biological son?’

While pacing her kitchen, she yells: ‘He is unconscious, why is he unconscious?’

Gesturing towards police officers before falling to the ground, she continues: ‘All I’m getting is answers like this. 

‘Why is no one telling me what’s going on? He’s my baby, what’s going on?’

She is later seen stood on her doorstep, saying: ‘If he is unconscious he needs me. He needs warm clothes. He needs mum.

‘I feel so useless. This is all my fault.’

Privately-educated Williamson, the daughter of a stockbroker, claimed to be an ‘overprotective mother’ but covered up attacks and abuse of Logan by lying to doctors, police and social workers about his previous injuries. 

 CCTV from a neighbouring 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 pyjama 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.

When Cole and the youth leave the house again to ditch Logan’s top they are out of the flat for 11 minutes and 11 seconds returning at 3.27am.

In his final few weeks on earth Logan had become miserable and anxious – wetting himself and self-harming by pinching himself or biting his lips until they bled.

Cole and Williamson, of Sarn, Bridgend, were convicted of killing Logan Mwangi by a jury of five men and seven women at Cardiff Crown Court on Thursday after five hours of deliberation

Williamson said her relationship with unemployed Cole was initially ‘perfect’, saying: ‘I felt like I had failed Logan because his biological father wasn’t around and Jordan didn’t turn out to be a good person. I desperately wanted a little fairytale family.’ 

She  was awarded a two-bedroom council flat at 5 Lower Llansantffraid in Sarn, Bridgend, in January 2019 – the home where medics estimated Logan spent his tragic last hours dying in ‘extreme pain’.

In April 2019 she met 6ft 4ins and 15 stone John Cole on a night out in The Railway pub in Bridgend town centre before sleeping with him that night.

Williamson fell pregnant almost straight away and Cole – who lived just a five minute walk from her home – began a relationship despite him still living with his estranged partner.

Williamson had been deemed unable to work or drive due to her regular seizures and would pocket around £1,500-a-month in benefits and not have to pay rent on her council flat and Cole would stay over regularly.

A self-confessed ‘true crime’ fan, Williamson found herself arrested over Logan’s murder the day after his body was found.

She cried in the witness box as she shouted: ‘I didn’t do it. I didn’t hurt Logan,’ but the jury disagreed.
