Woods will be searched by police investigating unsolved killing of MN deer hunter

Terry Brisk was found with a fatal gunshot wound in Morrison County this past November.

There will be a heavy police presence in a central Minnesota community next week as police continue to investigate the homicide of a deer hunter this past November.

A ground search will be conducted on a wooded property northwest of Belle Prairie Township, which is where the body of 41-year-old Terry Brisk, of Little Falls, was found with a gunshot wound back on Nov. 7.

The Morrison County Sheriff's Office initially thought the father-of-four, who was wearing a blaze orange hunting vest at the time, had been shot accidentally and the person who shot him may not have realized what had happened. But after further investigation, police ruled his death a homicide and started offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the person responsible.

This has since been upped to $30,000.

Officers will canvass the wooded property northwest of the intersection of Hawthorne Road and Jewel Road to look for any clues pertaining to Brisk's death.

Still missing is a Winchester Model AE 30-30 lever action rifle that belonged to Brisk. The rifle is said to be an older model, with a wooden stock and forearm with no sling attached.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information to call 320-632-9233 or to contact Crime Stoppers of Minnesota anonymously at www.CrimeStoppersMn.org, by calling 1-800-222-TIPS, or by sending a text message beginning with TIP674 to CRIMES.
