LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Sheriff’s investigators in southeastern Nebraska are investigating after human remains were found at a lake near Lincoln.
The remains were located on the southwest side of Pawnee Lake, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Thursday.
The person’s identity was not immediately known, and investigators said the site was being treated as a crime scene. As such, the sheriff’s department blocked public access to vehicular and water traffic on the southwest side of the lake while the scene was investigated.
Sheriff's officials had planned to hold a news conference on the discovery later Thursday.
