A surveillance tape catches a robber killing a store clerk in Ohio.

Brian Foguth

The robber forced Brian at gunpoint


Police responded to the silent alarm

In late November 1994, just after 2:00 A.M., police responded to a silent alarm at the Duke and Duchess convenience store in Brimfield, Ohio. Three minutes later, police arrived on the scene. They saw a man emerging from the store, but he was an innocent bystander who had found the store unattended.

In a back room, police found the body of the store clerk, 23-year-old Brian Foguth. He had been shot to death. Brian was not even scheduled to work that night. He was a last minute replacement for another employee.

Brian Foguth’s murder enraged the community. Finding his killer depends on a surveillance tape recorded during the crime. The tape shows the masked man entering the store at 2:02 A.M. and forcing Brian at gun point into a back office. Chief Robert Burgess of the Brimfield Township Police Department:

“Brian, of course, went in with his hands raised with the gunman behind him, and they spent approximately 60 seconds in that back room, out of camera range.”

Brian was found dead in the back room

At 2:03 A.M., the robber can be seen crouched behind the counter. At gunpoint, Brian empties the cash register. It is during this time that Brian triggers the silent alarm.

At 2:04, the customer pulls up to the gas pump, automatically activating a beeper inside the office. Police believe that to the gunman, it may have sounded like an alarm. Chief Burgess suspects that the robber panicked and pushed Brian onto the floor of the backroom. As they scuffled over the gun, Brian was killed instantly by a single bullet. It happened just three minutes after the robber entered the store. According to Chief Burgess, the customer was just a few feet away when the killing occurred:

The robber may have a hump

“The customer did not hear anything. He did not see anything, standing at the front of the store at the gas pumps.”

Police believe the killer was a white male, age 18 to 30, 5’9” in height. The suspect may have had head or facial injuries around that time, a result of his struggle with Brian.

In addition, police observed what appears to be a hump on the robber’s back.  It may be a physical characteristic or perhaps a concealed ponytail.

Watch this case now on Amazon Prime in season eight with Robert Stack and in season four with Dennis Farina. Also available on YouTube with Dennis Farina. Various seasons available now on Hulu.

    I believe he was murdered by a student from Kent State who needed cash for drugs

    Investigators used a DNA sample to come up with the suspect’s description in the Lisa Ziegert case, and they solved it just weeks ago https://cbsnews2.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r/2016/09/29/e8229465-9fe3-49a5-a637-5df3f6b4c8ef/thumbnail/620×350/3f499fd3597591722ee1a2ac5774b0e5/sketch3.jpg

    Investigators on Brian’s case should try the same thing. The killer left blood behind, so they have his DNA. Perhaps they could do the same practice that investigators did with Lisa’s?

    Ummmm……. Why Was Brian On Duty?!

      Can you please leave your stupid questions and comments in your pea brain where they belong? It’s not the movie Clerks. You’re an idiot

    The only hope all this time later is for DNA evidence to come. Chief Burgess reportedly said in the Robert Stack case that blood that didn’t belong to Brian was found in the back room…

    Other than that, a white masked man? Not going to solve it. Hope the DNA case can catch this criminal before long.

    Pardon me, I meant Chief Burgess*.

    Someone told me that Chief Palmer noted that there was blood in the back room that wasn’t Brian’s, suggesting it belonged to the robber. Palmer apparently said they would run a DNA check in the data base.

    This was not mentioned in the episode with Dennis Farina.

    Unsolved Mysteries, is it possible you cut out certain parts of this story when Robert Stack presented it?


    • unsolved

      Many of the cases in the Dennis Farina episodes were edited for time. Whenever possible with the Robert Stack episodes on Amazon Prime we are presenting the cases as they originally aired.

      Then they would realize what cop killed him. Oops

    Every time I think of what happened it just breaks my heart! You see, I knew Brian. He was a buddy of mine. We worked together at Altercare Of Ravenna…..a nursing home. I was a C.N.A. & he was a housekeeper. At that time, I didn’t know him that well but the more we worked, the more we would talk & get to know each other. I’d see him come into Filthy McNasty’s nightclub over in Kent & invite him over to my table & we’d get drunk together. He was such a good guy & was always smiling & in a good mood. He would make a person feel good just by being around him. He had a good ” aura ” around him. What really freaks me out though is that I didn’t know he was working nights too at Duke & Duchess…..he’d work days at the nursing home….go to school at Kent State….and then work his second job. That night when the bars were closing down at 2 a.m., I was about to stop by there to get gas on my way home and all of a sudden I had this bad, gut feeling not to stop by there & just go home. When I found out what happened to him, I got really upset thinking that if I did go there that night, I may have been able to help him & he would still be here! When I’d seen the episode air on t.v., it was said to have been believed that serial killer Glen Rogers could’ve committed the murder, escaped out the back door & drove off on I-76 while the police came through the front door!
