Omaha police investigates death of 29-year-old Julio Cesar-Ortega

OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM)-Omaha police are now investigating what happened to 29-year-old Julio Cesar-Ortega. A police officer found Cesar-Ortega dead inside his car outside the Northeast Precinct police station.

"We thought it was so odd that the car sat there for so long,” Thomas Moore said. He lives behind the police station.

Police says Cesar-Ortega was badly hurt by someone else, so he may have driven to the police station for help.

"It's weird because this never happened before, so close to home," Gabriela Gutierrez said. She just moved into a house around the corner from the police station.

Cesar-Ortega's family members say he was a loving and kind man.

"It's a tragic loss for a loved one," Moore said.

Moore says what’s interesting is there's a camera where Cesar-Ortega's car was parked.

"Most surveillance cameras are angled where you can see when a car pulls up," he said.

He plans to keep a closer eye on the area now.

"I'll be a little bit more cautious if I see a vehicle pull up. I might tend to look out and see what's going on."

For the family, he says it will always be a sense of uncertainty.

"It's the worst feeling in the world to think that someone was sitting there and they were suffering alone and help was feet away."

There will be a prayer vigil for Cesar-Ortega Friday evening at 5:15 p.m.

If you have any information, you're urged to call Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP.
