Sarpy County authorities say the man was tied up and likely killed before being dumped into a ditch on Sept. 24 and set on fire.
Authorities have reported little progress in solving the slaying of a man whose burning body was spotted by two farmers in eastern Nebraska.
Sarpy County authorities say the man has yet to be identified. He was tied up and likely killed before being dumped into a ditch on Sept. 24 and set on fire.
The body was found by the 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.
Sarpy County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Trapp says investigators have concluded the man likely wasn't from the area, because local authorities have not been asked about anyone whose general description matches the body.
