Homicide Investigation Update
On Thursday, December 15, 2016, at 1:27 a.m., members of the Lincoln Police Department were called to the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 1000 block of North 23rd Street on a disturbance described as “banging” sounds. Two men fled the area, one on foot and one in a sport utility vehicle.
As officers examined the scene, a green 1999 Buick Park Avenue was found unoccupied, with the engine running. The trunk was not latched and a deceased male was found inside the trunk.
Through continued investigation, the man who fled in the sport utility vehicle was identified as 25-year-old Sidney Jackson. With the assistance of the Omaha Police Department, Jackson was located Thursday morning in Omaha. He was subsequently transported to Lincoln and turned over to LPD investigators. Jackson was lodged at the Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility and cited for Aid & Abet a Class I Felony.
At 12:35 p.m., the second suspect, 32-year-old Jamez Henderson, was located near N. 27th Street and Interstate 80. Henderson resisted arrest and fled. Multiple agencies, including Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska State Patrol and U.S. Marshall Service, converged on the area. At 2:40 p.m., Henderson was taken into custody without further incident.
Investigators continue to process evidence and conduct interviews. The identity of the deceased has not been released, pending notification of family. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday, December 16, 2016.
