OMAHA, Neb. (WIBW)-Memorial services will be held in Omaha to honor the life of Cari Allen as the Topeka man accused of her murder, Aldrick Scott, remains on trial in Nebraska.
Heafey Hoffman Dworak Cutler Mortuaries & Crematory says Dear Ann Allen, 43, will be honored in a memorial service at 11:00am Thursday, January 26, with visitation commencing at 9:30am The service will be held at West Center Chapel in 7805 W. Center Rd. in Omaha.
The funeral home said Allen, a mother and carer and special needs advocate, has made her entire world revolve around her son, Brennan. Her life came to a tragic end in November 2022.
Aldrick Scott, 47, of Topeka, is charged with first-degree murder and remains in custody over Allen’s death. His body was found in a remote area of South Topeka in early January after a months-long search. Scott had been arrested by Interpol in Belize in December.
Prosecutors say Scott left his Topeka home in November, drove to Omaha where he shot Allen and then disposed of his body in Topeka. From there, officials say they believe Scott flew out of the country to Belize, where he was eventually arrested by Interpol and extradited to Omaha for trial.
The trial remains ongoing as detectives build their case based on location information from Scott’s social media and cell phone use, along with evidence found in his SUV parked at Kansas City International Airport.
Investigators indicated that Scott allegedly told them he was in Kansas when his ex-girlfriend, Allen, was on a date with someone else in Omaha. Records show his cell phone near his home in northwest Omaha about an hour before he arrived home, which he didn’t. He is not expected to appear in court again until the end of January.
