Man who died in Nebraska in the 70s may be Navajo


The Nebraska State Patrol is seeking help identifying the remains of a man who died more than three decades ago while possibly working on the Union Pacific Railroad. Recent reconstruction of the man's face reveals that he may be Navajo, Sgt. Dana Korell said. "It's a real cold case," Korell said. "We don't think there was any foul play. We don't know what happened. We just want to get these bones back where they belong."
