Three years after Terry Brisk was found shot dead in Morrison County, his widow and family have issued an emotional appeal for information.

Despite a wide-ranging police investigation and reward money totaling tens of thousands being offered for information leading to the Little Falls hunter's killer in 2016, there has been no breakthrough in the case.

On Tuesday, Brisk's family, led by his wife Pamela, made a plea for renewed help finding out how the 41-year-old came to be killed on Nov. 7, 2016.

"I just want to know what happened. I want to know why," Pamela Brisk says.

"Any little thing, any little information would be so nice. To just know what happened that afternoon."

Brisk was found dead from gunshot wounds on his parents' land in Belle Prairie Township, near Little Falls, in November 2016. He had been hunting alone prior to his death.

It was initially suggested that the father-of-four had died in a hunting accident, with police at the time noting that his Winchester rifle was missing from the scene.

Then a year ago, the rifle was found and his death was eventually ruled a homicide.

"It would help so much if we could solve this, not only our immediate family but also my grandchildren, they wonder what happened to their dad," Brisk's mother, Frances said.

Anyone with information should call the Morrison County Sheriff's Office on 320-632-9233 or CrimeStoppers on 1-800-222-8477.
