A 43-year-old man has been booked in connection with an Omaha real estate agent’s death at a home in western Douglas County.
Ross S. Lorello of La Vista was booked into the Douglas County Jail about 1:45 p.m. on suspicion of criminal homicide and use of a firearm to commit a felony.
Mickey Sodoro, a 70-year-old real estate agent with NP Dodge, had been missing since Monday night. His body was found Tuesday at 19350 W St., a single-family house listed as available as a rental.
Sodoro had been at the home Monday to show the property, authorities said.
His truck was found about half a mile away from the home, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Sodoro had been with NP Dodge Real Estate for nearly three decades, according to a Facebook post from Mike Riedmann, president of the company.
“We are grateful for the 27 years Mickey spent with our NP Dodge family. He was loved and valued and will be missed by all.”
After the arrest Wednesday, Riedmann said, “We are so pleased that they have found the person who may have perpetrated this crime.
“It’s a such a senseless crime,” he said, noting Sodoro was “was such a great man.”
The last criminal court entry in Nebraska for Lorello was in 2015 in Sarpy County, when he pleaded guilty to shoplifting and failure to appear in court.
