Omaha police are still digging for clues into the death of a woman whose body was found in an open grave at a cemetery.  She's been identified as UNL student Melissa Rodriguez, an Omaha South graduate.  

Authorities are treating the case as a homicide.


Officers were called to Graceland Park Cemetery around 10 a.m. on Thursday. The cemetery was closed for the rest of the day, and a scheduled burial at the gravesite was postponed.

The graveside service was scheduled for 28-year-old Kevin McIntyre, who was shot and killed on August 4th. Authorities say they do not believe the McIntyre slaying is connected to the body that was found in the grave.
