Charred body found in field near Ashland

Firefighters were called to contain a grass fire in Sarpy County near Ashland around 8 AM Monday when they found a charred body in the field. Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office, the Nebraska State Patrol and Douglas County CSI were called to investigate.

Sheriff Jeff Davis says foul play appears to be involved. There was no identification on the body so their first step is to check missing person’s reports and other data-banks to see if they can make a positive I-D. No further details are available.
