LITTLE FALLS — Sunday, Nov. 6, marks the six-year anniversary of the death of Terry Brisk, and the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office continues to ask for the public’s assistance with the homicide investigation.

The sheriff’s office confirmed Brisk was shot and killed with his own rifle while apparently hunting on his parents’ property Nov. 6, 2016, east of Little Falls. Based on evidence at the scene, the suspect was in close proximity to Brisk, and investigators believe the two would have interacted prior to the homicide taking place.

“Our office continues to review physical evidence collected and with technology evolving, we continue to pursue avenues to keep this case active,” the sheriff’s office reported in a news release Friday. “Someone may have the information that law enforcement needs to bring closure to this case. Even if you aren’t sure if the information you have is important to share, call our agency or Crime Stoppers, as it might be the information that is needed to bring this case forward. A $30,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for Terry’s murder.”

The sheriff’s office encourages members of the public to call 320-632-9233 if they have any information pertaining to this case. Another option is to report it and stay anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers of Minnesota at ; by calling the toll free number 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) from anywhere in Minnesota; by installing the Submit a Tip app on any smartphone; or by sending a text message beginning with TIP674 to CRIMES (274637). All contact with Crime Stoppers is anonymous, and people with tips may qualify for a reward if the information leads to an arrest.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
