OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department (OPD) has linked a murder suspect who was killed by law Kansas enforcement on Tuesday to a second homicide in the area.

In addition to the murder of John Miles, OPD believes Nicholas Hirsh was also responsible for killing 68-year-old John Clanton.

Clanton was reported missing June 10, one day before the killing of Hirsh's alleged first victim.

Clanton's body was located in the Ponca Hills area of Douglas County on the same day Hirsh died during a shootout with law enforcement in Lawrence, Kansas.
