  • Eugene K. Wurtele, 65, was found dead at his home on May 27 after an apparent suicide from a self-inflicted gun shot to the head.
    County Coroner David Partsch confirmed that Wurtele had been found by his wife shortly before  2 p.m. this afternoon.
    “His wife had contact with him around 1:15 p.m. and he was fine,” said Partsch. “They have a side yard that they’ve made into an orchard and he was out in the trees.”
    Wurtele was set to appear tomorrow in a Douglas County court, where he was expected to enter a guilty plea to sexual assault of a minor.
    Wurtele was also expected to plead guilty to multiple Class 1D felonies for sexual assault involving children in Otoe County.
