Family of slain Omaha professor, wife ask for privacy

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The family of a slain Creighton University professor and his wife are asking for privacy amid the ongoing investigation into the deaths.  The university issued a statement Monday on behalf of the family of Dr. Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary. The couple was found slain May 14 in their Omaha home. The statement called the couple a devoted mother and beloved father.  Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer says a task force is investigating any connection between the deaths and a double homicide at the home of Roger Brumback's colleagues in 2008. That's when 11-year-old Thomas Hunter and the family's housekeeper were found stabbed to death in the Hunter family home.  Roger Brumback was a pathology professor and colleague of Thomas' parents, who both work at Creighton.
