There are not many blacks in Nebraska.
However, there are some blacks in Nebraska – and that’s all it takes for this sort of thing to start happening.
Two people were arrested in Fort Collins on Saturday on suspicion of kidnapping one woman and kidnapping and killing another in southwest Nebraska.
Kevin German, 24, and Keonna Carter, 22, were arrested in Fort Collins in connection with their alleged role in the disappearance of a 20-year-old woman and the death of a 22-year-old woman, both in Chase County, Nebraska, according to a Chase County Sheriff’s Office news release.
The remains of the missing 22-year-old woman were found Sunday. She has been identified as Annika Swanson of Imperial, Nebraska, according to the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office. Her manner and cause of death have not been released.
The 20-year-old woman was found safe, according to a report by the Associated Press. It’s unclear when she was found, and the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday afternoon.
Swanson was reported missing Thursday, about a week after her father said he last saw her, according to a Chase County news release. After speaking with several people Thursday, investigators also determined a 20-year-old woman had been assaulted and kidnapped.
Officials began searching for Swanson the evening of Nov. 21, and conducted a more organized search with search warrants, a cadaver dog and tracking dog Nov. 22 in a rural part of the county south of Imperial. The search was unsuccessful.
Investigators identified two suspects and discovered they were likely in Fort Collins. With help from Fort Collins Police Services, German and Carter were both arrested in Fort Collins on Saturday.
No doubt the other woman kidnapped was white too.
