Sarpy County Sheriff’s Capt. Monte Daganaar told the Lincoln Journal Star on Wednesday that Omaha officers are aiding the investigation because the man likely had a connection to Omaha.
Daganaar says investigators are still working on confirming the man’s name.
An autopsy showed the man was tied up and probably was killed before being dumped in the ditch on Sept. 24 and set on fire.
The body was found by farmers as they checked out smoke between their fields near Linoma Beach. The resort sits east of Ashland on the east side of the Platte River.
