The man found in a ravine in Washington County has been identified as 52-year-old Delbert Freemont, Junior of Omaha.
According to the Washington County Sheriff, Freemont's death is being investigated as a homicide. His body was found, on December 9, in a ravine just off of County Road P40.
A search of the Nebraska Department of Corrections website shows Freemont has served time three different times since the 1980s for arson, felony DUI - third offense, and domestic violence. He was supposed to be on parole for the domestic violence conviction until March 2013.
On Tuesday evening the investigation of the case moved to Omaha as authorities focused on a home at 39th and Burdette. Omaha police were on location helping Washington County authorities.
They served a search warrant but no one was home. There were indications that this was the house where Freemont lived.
