Homicide Suspect Jason Jones Arrested: Who Is He? Col. John Bolduc, the police chief at Nebraska State University, reported at a press conference at 9:30 a.m. that Jason Jones, 42, of Laurel, was found after evidence from both murder scenes led detectives to him.
Bolduc asserts that the Nebraska State Patrol’s crime scene investigators discovered tangible proof linking Jones to the crimes at both crime scenes. After finding the evidence, investigators used “flash diversionary devices” as a distraction strategy prior to Jones’ arrest.
Bolduc said that more information could not be made available because the information gathered from the two scenes is still being processed by the investigators.

The 42-year-old Jason Jones resides on Elm Street, the same street where the murders took place just a few blocks apart.
Bolduc claims that physical evidence was found at both crime scenes by Nebraska State Patrol crime scene investigators that connected Jones to the crimes. Investigators used “flash diversionary devices” as a diversionary tactic after discovering the evidence, which led to Jones’ arrest.
Investigators apprehended Jones after going into the suspect’s home at 206 Elm St., which is next to one of the victims’ residences, and discovering that he had severe burn wounds. Bolduc claimed that he was flown to a hospital in Lincoln, where he is still in critical condition.
Four bodies were discovered dead in two different Laurel homes on Thursday morning, prompting the arrest. The homes, which were situated off of Elm Street, were two blocks apart. The Nebraska State Patrol had requested any information regarding a Black male driving a silver sedan away from Laurel during a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

The three victims at the second home were 86-year-old Gene Twiford, 85-year-old Janet Twiford, and 55-year-old Dana Twiford.
