Local News

Deputies in Nebraska say remains found in a trailer possibly belong to one of the two brothers from Wisconsin, who were victims of a homicide in northwestern Missouri.

Garland Nelson is facing two counts of first-degree murder and several other charges for the deaths of Justin and Nick Diemel.

Authorities say the brothers went missing in July after going to Nelson’s farm to collect a $250,000 check for cattle.

Now, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s office says a rancher in Hershey, Nebraska found human remains in a stock trailer he recently purchased in Missouri.

Deputies confirmed the remains were human and found personal items as well.

One of brother’s bodies was found ten days after the two went missing on the farm. 

Lincoln County Sheriff, Jerome Kramer believes the human remains in Nebraska belong to Justin Diemel, since his debit card was also found at the scene.
