Lincoln PD announce arrest in connection to homicide
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Police have made an arrest in connection with a homicide in Lincoln.
Lincoln Police Chief Teresa Ewins said during a news conference Thursday that 55-year-old William Wright was arrested in connection with the death of 61-year-old Ronald George.
George's body was found near 3rd and P Streets in Lincoln around 2 a.m. Wednesday.
Chief Ewins also said police are in the area of northwest 12th and Bond Streets for a suspicious death investigation.
"Two deaths is tragic," Ewins said. "This not something that, I think, Lincoln is used to, and I understand that. No matter what, it's not easy to take, but we don't believe that there is any public safety concerns right now."
She declined to say if the two cases are connected.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and more details will be announced on Friday.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Lincoln Police.
