Retired Omaha Homicide Detective Wins National Award for True Crime Book

August 1, 2012

OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Retired Omaha homicide detective Brian Bogdanoff can now add award-winning author to his list of accomplishments, which also includes cracking the 2005 triple homicide narcotics case about which the book was written. Bogdanoff is now a Bronze recipient in the national ForeWord Book of the Year Awards for his book, “Three Bodies Burning: The Anatomy of an Investigation into Murder, Money, and Mexican Marijuana.”

The chilling trail of evidence from a remote wooded area in Omaha where three bodies are found burning in 2005 leads homicide detectives across the country chasing down witnesses and conspirators in a two-year search for cold-blooded killers.

The haunting, true crime story of the triple murder reveals piles of cash stashed in the most unlikely of places, a blood-soaked crime scene, the remote dump site for bodies, luxury cars, flashy jewelry, and hundreds of pounds of illegal dope.

The book shows the reader how an unbelievable break took Omaha detectives down the rabbit hole where CSI meets Law & Order and where solid detective work and meticulous forensic procedures bring down a mega-million-dollar drug conspiracy and lock up the killers for life. The author also shares personal stories of life as a cop.

Author Brian Bogdanoff has retired from the Omaha Police Department after 20-plus years of service. Bogdanoff holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and graduated from the Omaha Police Academy. Before his service as a homicide detective, Bogdanoff was an undercover narcotics detective for the City of Omaha.

Bogdanoff’s police work has been recognized numerous times by the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee, a group dedicated to “enhancing the overall effectiveness of the criminal justice system.” He also received a TOP COPS award for this case in 2007 from the National Association of Police Organizations and was recognized with an honorable mention through John Walsh’s show America’s Most Wanted.
