From The Minneapolis Police Department website- Cold Case Files section:
Joe Behrend left Madison, South Dakota to chase his dreams and launch his music career. As a keyboardist with the Flamin’ Ohs, he was part of a group that was one of the first to record a music video for MTV. The group was extremely popular regionally and Behrend was embarking on a new music project when he was murdered in 1989. He had been bludgeoned to death in the music room of his apartment on Columbus Avenue South. Family members, friends and musical colleagues have continued to wonder who killed Joe, and why. Investigators share their frustration and continue to work this case, but need a little help from someone, anyone, with any information that may lead to the arrest of the person who murdered musician Joe Behrend.

Additional article on case:
Thoughts? I should note we did have a previous thread on Joe's case but it was not properly formatted for the forum. The poster who posted I haven't seen on our site in a long time but just in case he ever comes across our site again, I wanted to let him know he didn't do anything wrong, I just reformatted the thread so it would be easier to read and he is more than welcome to come back and post cases again.
In any case, we discussed on the previous thread that it was believed Joe was killed with his own guitar. In my opinion, this indicates a very personal motive and/or an argument that got out of hand. (Where one picks up the nearest object when angry).
