The death of Terry Brisk is now being considered a homicide investigation, said Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen.
Brisk, 41, was killed Nov. 7, while hunting on his land on the corner of Jewel Road and Hawthorne Road, in Belle Prairie Township, just east of Little Falls.
Investigators are also now seeking the public’s help in locating a gun believed to have been stolen during the incident.
Preliminary autopsy results from Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that Brisk died from blood loss resulting from a gunshot wound. The Sheriff’s Office, with help from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, has followed up on several leads and conducted multiple interviews. The determination of homicide as a manner of death is based on information obtained thus far in the investigation.
In addition, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a Winchester Model AE 30-30 lever action rifle belonging to Brisk. The rifle is described as an older model, with a wooden stock and forearm, with no sling attached. Brisk was known to carry the rifle in the woods while hunting and at this point it has not been located.
Sheriff Larsen said there is a $20,000 reward for information that leads to the identification of the person who shot and killed Brisk.
Brisk left behind his wife, Pamela, and four children.
Anyone with any information regarding this case, is asked to contact the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office at 320-632-9233.
