Cass County Sheriff, Wm. C. Brueggemann advised that on Saturday September 3, 2022 at 1:12 p.m., Cass County Sheriff Deputies along with Louisville rescue and Cass County Medics responded to the Platte river State Park, tent site #2 for a male party that was possibly deceased.
Upon arrival, Deputies found a single male party in a tent, at camp site #2 who had been deceased for some time. Deputies were unable to positively identify the male party due to decomposition and no personal identification found. The male party is believed to be an Alan J. Koenig DOB- 03/26/1991 (31 yoa) of Omaha, who is the male party that rented the camp site. Family members came to the camp site to look for the male party because they were unable to make contact with him or the male parties mother for at least a week. The family members were able to locate the mother at her home in Gretna with the assistance of Sarpy County Sheriff's Office. The family members were able to get from the mother that the male party had been at camp site #2 and she had not seen him for 4 or 5 days. The family members went to the camp site and found the male party deceased.
At this time, it is unknown if foul play has taken apart in the death of the male party and an autopsy has been requested by the County Attorney. Incident is still under investigation
