Omaha Police are investigating the death of 19-year-old Melissa Rodriguez as a homicide. Her body was found at Graceland Park Cemetery on Thursday morning.
No arrests have been made, but the Douglas County attorney's office says 19-year-old Mikael Loyd is considered a person of interest in the case.
According to an affidavit, Rodriguez was assaulted on June 11. Officers who spoke with her reported that she had bruises on her arms and legs, but Rodriguez said she didn't want to press charges.
Her family members voiced concerns that she was in an abusive relationship.
