(Undated) -- Investigators in Arizona are working with Lincoln, Nebraska police on a cold case murder from over 25 years ago.

The Coconino, Arizona County Sheriff’s Office says on October 5, 1995 a dead man was found buried in the area of Forest Service Road 418, north east of Flagstaff, Arizona. Investigators says an autopsy confirmed that the man had been murdered, but an identification would take another two decades.

The sheriff's office says in August of 2016, DNA technology identified the victim as Robert Bresson, who was 56 years old at the time his body was discovered. Investigators say that the last confirmed sighting of Robert alive had been in the Why, Arizona area in spring of 1995. Robert was known to be associated with Lincoln and Independence, Iowa.

The investigation into Robert’s disappearance and murder is ongoing. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in the case. Anyone who has any information about the investigation into Bresson's death is asked to contact the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office at 928-774-4523 and ask for Detective Meyer.
