The death of a man at the Omaha headquarters of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club is being investigated as a homicide. Police say the body of 48-year-old William Furlong of Omaha was found inside the club at 27th & J about 10:45 a.m. Sunday.
Evidence found around the body indicates foul play. "Officers are canvassing the area trying to find witnesses or anybody with more information or saw something suspicious or has any information, please approach us and contact us,” said OPD Officer James Shade.
Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call police at 402-444- 5656.
Rosalee Combs has lived in the neighborhood for more than three decades. “It is a quiet neighborhood, it's like four generations old, all the neighbors know each other. I didn't hear any gunshots or anything going on. Usually you can hear if something was going on 24th Street, you can hear it all the way down here and it was quiet last night."
Channel 6 News approached a group of people wearing Hell’s Angels gear asking if they'd like to talk, but they declined. "They are usually pretty quiet over there,” says Combs. “You hear the bikes going off every now and then, but that's it. There's not wild parties over there. You don't see people drinking at 2, 3 in the morning, none of that kind of stuff."
Combs thinks this will cause many to be on high alert. “There's a bunch of kids in this neighborhood, we all sit around and sit out on Sunday and mow our lawns. That's what we do. So seeing this kind of stuff is different. I'm sure there will be a lot of talk in the neighborhood for a long time."
