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 18-year-old university freshman’s death. Bearson was only four weeks into nursing school at North Dakota State University when he went missing on Sept. 20, 2014. Three days later, his body was found in an RV sales lot in north Moorhead, far from his campus dorm room. To the Fargo community, Bearson was one of hundreds of new faces at NDSU, still in the process of establishing his place. In his hometown of Sartell, Minn., Bearson was beloved: an all-star basketball player, brother, boyfriend and alumnus of a small Catholic school. “I think he would’ve been a great leader of the community because he was already — a good role model, good mentor for kids his age and even younger,” said Janelle Von Pinnon, publisher of The Newsleaders of St. Joseph and Sartell, newspapers for the towns near St. Cloud. … [Read more...] about Minnesota teen’s homicide still unexplained 4 years later
