The Nebraska State Patrol, with help from the Custer County sheriff’s office and Broken Bow police, is investigating an overnight murder-suicide in the area of Broken Bow and Anslemo.

The victim, Angie Miller, 45, was found dead inside her home in the 800 block of No. 13th in Broken Bow. NSP was asked to investigate the homicide around 1:45 a.m. Friday by the Broken Bow police and the Custer County sheriff’s office.
