An arrest has been made in the shooting death of a man whose body was found on the side of a Lancaster County road by a newspaper carrier.
Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner reports 23-year-old Miguel Castillo of Lincoln has been charged with first degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Tyler Schoenrock of Lincoln.
Wagner says the investigation soon centered on Castillo.
“Through our interviews with a number of people involved in this case who were acquaintance or friends of Schoenrock, Castillo’s name came up,” Wagner tells Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN. “And we knew he was an acquaintance (of Schoenrock) and so that’s how he was developed as a suspect.”
Wagner won’t disclose details about the investigation, including why Castillo became the prime suspect in the murder.
A newspaper carrier found the body of Schoenrock. He had been shot several times.
