 Douglas County, Neb. (KMTV) - A young man found dead in his west Omaha home Wednesday morning was due in Seward County court the same day.

A neighbor called deputies for a well-being check after not hearing from Maureen Flanagan for a week. Inside their home near 156th and Blondo, deputies found her body in the basement and her 18-year-old son Cooper's body in the garage.

Investigators said the bodies had been there at least two days. They said the deaths were not an accident. They do not believe there is a general threat to the public, and they are not looking for suspects.

KMTV Action 3 News has learned a warrant was issued for Cooper Flanagan in Seward County Wednesday morning because he did not appear in court. He was scheduled to appear at 10 a.m. on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, minor in possession, zero tolerance violation, open alcohol container, careless driving, and speeding. Online court records through the Justice Department indicate the offense happened on June 21.
