FARGO — The Forum is producing a true crime podcast called “Who Killed Tommy?” exploring the unsolved homicide of Tommy Bearson, an 18-year-old North Dakota State University freshman.
FARGO — It's been four years since Tommy Bearson was mysteriously killed, and investigators have yet to name a single suspect or motive behind the homicide of the 18-year-old North Dakota State University freshman. Bearson was only four weeks into nursing school at NDSU when he went missing Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014. Three days later, his body was found in an RV sales lot in Moorhead, far from his Reed Hall dorm room.
MOORHEAD — For Jan and Bruce Harmon, dealing with flood worries every spring at their home of nearly 40 years had become too draining, so they accepted a buyout as part of a citywide flood mitigation plan.
FARGO – Police say an attack in a gas station in Fargo, Tuesday, Sept. 4, happened between two people who knew each other.
MOORHEAD — Brandon Lunak said he's had a lot of first days during his career in public education, but Tuesday, Sept 4., was his official first day of school as Superintendent of Moorhead Area Public School District. "I couldn't be happier with the way the day has started," he said. "With transportation, to food service, to getting students in the classroom. It's been a very positive opening day."
WASHINGTON — During Cass County Commissioner Rick Steen's first trip back to the nation's capital since 9/11, the elected official said he and two colleagues learned a lot and walked away with resources and relationships to address issues like the opioid crisis and workforce shortages.
FARGO — In sharing their concerns at a school safety forum, both parents and educators in Fargo-Moorhead said that while an active shooter is their greatest fear, it's the daily violence in classrooms and lack of mental health resources that needs to be addressed. At Fargo South High School on Monday, Aug. 27, school board members and administrators, law enforcement, legislators and school staff from across the region took part in one of several statewide safety forums hosted by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction and other education and human service agencies.
FARGO — As North Dakota State University was swarming with students on the first day of classes Monday, Aug. 20, a group of residents living around campus voiced concerns about a controversial $25 million expansion project of nearby St. Paul's Newman Center. Around 20 homeowners living near the Catholic church said they aren't opposed to a new chapel, but the addition of a five-story "faith based" apartment on the property, 1141 University Dr. N., has residents in fear of losing their neighborhood.
FARGO — William Hoehn admits he made a life-changing mistake on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017. "I should've called police that night," he told The Forum on a recent evening from inside the Cass County Jail, where he awaits trial on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and lying to police. He claims he came home from work to his north Fargo apartment that day to find his live-in girlfriend, Brooke Crews, cleaning blood from their bathroom.
FARGO — When Bryan Shea moved into 2825 9th St. N., a few weeks ago, he didn't know the backstory of the apartment building he was hauling boxes and belongings into. "Want to know what tipped me off?" Shea said as he sifted through a crowded keyring in the entryway while on break from his work running an insulation company. Shea opened his mailbox and pointed to a fading sticker inside that reads, "Greywind." "I knew I recognized that name from somewhere," he said.
