NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Residents of Nebraska from North Platte to Kearney, and particularly those in Brady, can rest easy. The man suspected of being in the area, wanted in connection with the November 5 murder of a Colorado man, is in custody.

36-year-old Edward Herbert Hoid was arrested on several charges on Friday, according to Chief Deputy of Police Jeffrey Satur of the Longmont Public Safety Office. Hoid was arrested in Longmont, Colorado and taken to the Boulder County Jail. He is being held with no bond.

Chief Deputy Satur said getting Hoid’s piture out was important. He told News 2 that releasing a photo of a wanted person is always successful, saying it is important to make the public aware, and it always produces results if the wanted person is out there.

Chief Deputy Satur explained that Hoid has a friend who lives in Thorton, Colorado who has familiy in Brady. Police and the State Patrol teams involved took the risk that Hoid might have fled to the Brady residence very seriously.

The Longmont Emergency Communications Center is taking calls for sightings of a wanted man. Detective John High of the Longmont Police Department in Colorado is investigating the November 5 death of 71-year-old Randall Schubert.

Detective High’s investigation has led him to 36-year-old Edward Herbert Hoid, and he has reason to believe Hoid might be located in the west central part of Nebraska, somewhere between North Platte and Kearney. Hoid may be or may have been in Brady, according to the department.
