From the Wisconsin State Journal website:
Andrew Nehmer, 20
Killed: April 22, 1986, at the Open Pantry, 2201 S. Park St., in the town of Madison, where he was working the night shift as a clerk.
The case: Nehmer, a UW-Madison student originally from Watertown, was stabbed in the neck during a robbery and bled to death. At the time, the case didn’t lead to any charges. But renewed attention came in April 2013, when town police named a suspect and the Open Pantry offered a $5,000 reward for anyone with information that helps close the case.
Police said in 2013 that Donald Ameche Braxton, a former Madison resident living in Colorado, is the prime suspect, but he has not been arrested or charged. Braxton was convicted of three other armed robberies of stores near the Open Pantry and in the same month that Nehmer was killed. DNA testing in 2011 found that Braxton couldn't be excluded as the source of the DNA on a red bandanna found at the scene.
One of Nehmer’s former teachers described him in an April 23, 1986, story as a “kind, considerate young man who had a lot of promise.” He was majoring in communications arts and interested in pursuing film. Nehmer’s mother, stepfather and brother attended the news conference in April 2013 to announce the reward in hopes of spurring leads in the case. At that time, police said that witnesses hesitating to come forward had said they might be motivated by a reward.
