Authorities in Washington County are investigating a deadly mystery. A decomposing body has been located in a ravine just north of the county line.

It was discovered Monday in the 2500 block of County Road P40.

Investigators say the body is that of an adult male who had been there since before the snow fell. They say the death is suspicious.

The area has been the scene of high-profile murders in the past. The body of North High School student Kenyatta Bush was found there, as was the body of Amber Harris.

Information is still scarce in the latest case.

Washington County Sheriff Mike Robinson said, “The body has been removed from the ravine. We can say it was a male subject. Until we hear differently it will be treated as suspicious.”

People who live in the area are concerned about their community being used as a dumping ground.

Ron Ashburry said, “It’s close to the city but far enough away where they're not really gonna be seen is probably the main thing. It’s close enough to North Omaha where a lot of the stuff happens; close enough but far enough; probably what happened.”

Authorities received a tip that there was a body at that location. Investigators walked through the area and found the body at the bottom of the ravine around 12:30 p.m.
