News Release
Hillsboro Police Investigate Death After Body Found - 09/20/20

At about 12:20 p.m., Hillsboro Police Department officers responded to the 300 block of Southeast Ninth Avenue after a body was found outside a medical clinic. They discovered 38-year-old Jacob Gardner of Omaha, Nebraska dead.

The cause of death is under investigation, but officers are not seeking any suspects and there is no danger to the community.

Gardner was indicted by a Douglas County, Nebraska grand jury last week on charges stemming from the May 30 shooting death of James Scurlock in Omaha.

For information regarding the Omaha investigation and charges, please contact Douglas County special prosecutor Frederick Franklin.

No further details regarding the incident in Hillsboro released at this time.
