Adam Price Bio – Wiki
Adam Price is a Nebraska man who has been arrested after the deaths of his two young children. Police said Price was taken into custody in California after his 5-year-old daughter, Emily Price, and 3-year-old son, Theodore Price, were found dead at his Bellevue home. Price and the kids’ mother, Mary Nielsen, are going through a divorce, she told the Omaha World-Herald.
He is 35 years old.
Deaths of Theodore & Emily
Police have not released many details about the deaths of Emily and Theodore Price, including how they died. According to a press release, officers from the Bellevue Police Department went to Price’s home on Alberta Avenue on Saturday evening, May 15, 2021, at 9:50 p.m. and the following morning at 8:59 a.m. to check the wellbeing of the kids and Price.
“Officers investigate during both calls for service but did not observe exigent circumstances that would allow them to force entry into the home,” police said in the press release. “On Sunday morning, May 16, 2021, at approximately 11:30 a.m., Bellevue Police and Fire Departments were dispatched back to the home, due to a male and female juvenile being found deceased.”
Police initially put out a statement saying Price was not located at home, and they asked the public for help in finding him, saying he was possibly driving a dark blue Mazda CX7 with Nebraska plates.
About 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, police said in a second press release that Price had been found in Pacifica, California, about a 25-hour drive from Bellevue. “Detectives are no longer searching for anyone else possibly involved in the case. However, anyone with information regarding the case is still asked to contact the Bellevue Police Department at 402-594-4111 or Sarpy County Crimestoppers at 402-592-STOP.”
Police spokesman Captain Andy Jashinske told the World-Herald, “At this point, we don’t know exactly what happened. It’s suspicious; we have two children who were located in a home with nobody around.”

The Sarpy County Attorney’s Office confirmed they filed a criminal complaint charging Adam Price, 35, with two counts of felony child abuse resulting in death.

Officers and paramedics arrived at the house Sunday after 11 a.m. after receiving communication, the children were found. Upon arriving, police said they could not find Price nor his car.
At some point in the last 72 hours, according to Bellevue police, a license plate reader in Reno, NV, located Price’s car as it drove west to California.
BPD said Mary Nielsen, the children’s mother, called and asked for a welfare check after not hearing from her kids for several days.
Police say Price will go through extradition proceedings in California and voluntarily agree to be returned to Nebraska to face charges. He is currently being held by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office at the Maguire Correctional Facility.
Price is being held without bail on a fugitive warrant, online jail records show. It was not immediately clear if he has hired an attorney who could comment on his behalf. Price was scheduled to appear in San Mateo County court on May 18. The court is located in Redwood City.
“We have two young children a 3 and 5-year-old who are no longer with us and this is a very sad circumstance,” Jashinske told KETV.
