Four people died early Thursday morning in the small northeast Nebraska town of Laurel, and foul play is suspected, according to the Nebraska State Patrol's superintendent. A second blaze broke out at around the same time at a home at 503 Elm St., where authorities found three more people dead. "We aren't sure if they knew each other," said Cedar County Sheriff Larry Koranda, who appeared at Thursday's news conference alongside Bolduc and the county attorney. Bolduc asked anyone with information on the crime or surveillance video of the area to contact the State Patrol at 402-479-4921. It's a very safe community," the sheriff said, later adding, "if you see something out of the ordinary, please call."
