Police on Thursday night released the name of the man who died in a fire in a South Omaha garage.
The relatives of John C. Schmid, 58, have been notified of his death, police said. Schmid's last known address was 578 S. 126th St., but he wasn't living there any longer, police said.
Schmid's body was recovered from a fire that occurred Aug. 30 in a detached garage behind a vacant house at 1531 S. 28th St.
Police still are investigating the fire. They said last month that nothing had been ruled out in the case and that they hadn't determined that the death was a crime.
The fire in the one-car brick garage was reported about 1:30 a.m. Schmid's body was discovered inside about an hour after the fire was reported.
The house was being renovated. No work was being done in the garage.
