Who Is Northeast Nebraska Homicide Suspects Jason Jones, 42 Years Old?
Jason Jones, aged 42, lives on Elm Street, the same street where the homicides took place just blocks from each other.
According to Bolduc, Nebraska State Patrol crime scene investigators obtained physical evidence from both crime scenes that pointed to Jones. After finding the evidence, investigators used "flash diversionary devices" as a distraction technique leading to Jones' arrest.

After entering the suspect's residence at 206 Elm St., across the street from one of the victims' homes, investigators arrested Jones and found that he had severe burn injuries. Bolduc reported being flown to a hospital in Lincoln, where he remains in serious condition.
The arrest comes after four people were found deceased in two separate residences in Laurel on Thursday morning. The houses were two blocks apart, located off of Elm Street. During a press conference Thursday afternoon, the Nebraska State Patrol had asked the public for any information regarding a Black male driving a silver sedan away from Laurel.
