At the top of the ancient ruins in Quintana Roo in Mexico
9/19/15 – Chaska, MN - Dan Hennen
On September, 10, 2015 law enforcement found the bodies of five people in a Greenwood, MN home after a welfare check. Brian Short, 45, his wife Karen, 48 and their three children: Cole, 17, Madison, 15, and Brooklyn, 14, all died of a single shotgun wound to the head. All were found in separate bedrooms, except the father Brian. He was found in the garage.
The new school year began on Tuesday, September 8, and on September 10, classmates and teachers thought something wasn’t right as the three Short students missed the first two days of school. Brian also missed work those two days. A welfare check was requested by a co-worker of Brian’s and police stumbled upon a “grisly” scene at the home on Greenwood, MN, a 700-person community on the south side of Lake Minnetonka just outside of Minneapolis. The family dog, Harley was found unharmed.
Brian Short was the founder of AllNurses.com a networking site for nurses, which he started in 1999 when he was still a nursing student. He depicted the Excelsior-based company as a success in a 2014 interview with the Star Tribune.
He said he ran the operation out of his house until a year earlier. He had four staff people as of a year ago. He said the site was drawing 4 million unique visitors per month, with 150,000 unique users every day. And he said he had turned down 50 buyout offers in the past ten years.
Brian Short’s networking/information/forum/resource site dedicated to the nursing profession is the largest in the world. The revenue was roughly one million per year and was growing. Advertising on the site was the main revenue producer and Brian had staff hired to specifically focus on that area. He could have sold the site and the company if things were hard. The $2 million home he recently bought on St. Alban’s Bay was more reason to contradict his “financial difficulties.”
Statistically, the odds of a man killing his wife and all children, and then himself is extremely low, but DOES happen in situations involving history of domestic violence. There was no evidence of this either. Especially an intelligent, entrepreneur who was doing something he was gifted at for a career. He worked from home until 2013 and then rented office space in nearby Excelsior in a historic building that was at one time a school.
The time to go to each room, shoot the victim, and proceed to the next room, shoot the victim, and then re-load the weapon seems something that was carried out by a cool-calculated killer. Brian allegedly was found in the family’s eight-car garage, dead of a shotgun wound to the head. Officials denied saying a shotgun was found by his side, but only a “shot gun was recovered at the scene.” It would be interesting to note how many firearms were registered to Brian (if any) and the make and model of each. Maybe all he owned was a shotgun, and the narrative here had to be steered in that direction. For five people killed in a home with no neighbors hearing anything suspicious, no dog barking, and no calls to 911 for “suspicious activity” from neighbors leads one to conclude this was completed by a hand-gun with a silencer attached and performed by someone other than a family member. It seemed to be a calculated killing, even a professional hit.
Online at the AllNurses.com forum, there is a special thread announcing the untimely death of Brian and the family. The thread is titled “Brian Short News” and there are 471 comments there from the people that Brian reached and condolences to the family and comments of “shock and disbelief” that is happened to this family. Reading through it I found some comments “edited” and those users questioning why their post was edited. It seems that any user who questioned the official narrative or doubted the police story, had their comments edited and in some cases removed altogether, because of the “disrespect it showed” to the survivors and co-workers.
It piqued my interest when I too, commented about the fact we should keep an open mind about what may or may not have happened in that home. There was then a post by the moderator saying this thread was only meant for condolences, and not intended for "speculation." I made a comment saying "RIP to the family, and what a horrible situation this is and I was looking forward to more results of the investigation, because much of it didn't make sense.” Soon afterwards, my comment was edited and my last section was removed. I received a private message from the moderator that mentioned they did indeed edit my post and if I wanted to speculate on what happened please feel free to create a new thread as this one was intended for condolences only.
Fair enough, I created a new thread on their site for those of us interested in looking into the strange circumstances in this case, and how could a father kill his family and how could none of the neighbors hear multiple shotgun blasts from the home. I quickly received some "likes" and several comments, but then it vanished. I refreshed my browser and found the thread was now "closed." A message from the moderator said, the family is grieving and it is an insult to question what happened. I responded with, I am insulted at the thought that Brian Short committed these crimes, and until we know what happened, it is fair to speculate and I felt it is better, to have a new thread for this line of questioning and not to commingle this info with the "condolences" thread.
"I'll reiterate: please use Google or some other internet search engine if you wish to find links to the myriad of news articles about the unfortunate events. Please do not crosslink any article links about the incident onto these forums.
Peoples' constitutional rights to free speech are not applicable to this privately owned forum. Thank you for understanding and appreciating this."
It was at this point, I smelled a rat.
Since this webiste was updated, the original "comments" were lost. Here are the comments.
Its obvious he they where killed by the goverment and masonic terrorist military. The text on the wall says it all.
Not surprised that you experienced censorship. I left the site when I was placed on moderation because a recipient of a private message I'd sent had supposedly complained about my message. My recipient did no such thing, and the members had long suspected that the moderators were reading our private messages. Not long after I left it was openly admitted that private messages are indeed read.
this absolutely blows my mind. i mean, i’m shocked but i’m not surprised if that makes sense. thank you for this. honestly.
It's a tragedy and it doesn't make sense that the senior moderator wouldn't seem to be happy when people assist in perusing to find Brian's and his family's cause of death
"It was at this point, I smelled a rat"
Give it up! Brian Short was a psycho who murdered his family. It doesn't matter that he presented his family as a Leave It To Beaver clone ...they has serious problems & he couldn't deal with them. Financial, probably. And, I suspect, something much deeper under the surface. Good riddance to Brian Short!
As a nurse I appreciate the critical thinking demonstrated here as well as questioning the status quo. It seems it is well founded. Good luck and keep us posted!
How does Brian Short differ from Chris Watts or Scott Peterson? Brian Short had a successful business and some extremely successful impression management. A recent article on the website Short founded puts forward the narrative that a fast-moving mental illness killed Brian and his family -- it wasn't really Brian's fault. That article doesn't mention Karen, Brooklyn, Cole or Madison Short. Just collateral damage, I guess. It's ironic that they published that article during Domestic Violence month. I cannot feel at all sorry for Brian when I know how his wife must have been suffering, hearing him killing her children and knowing that she would be next. Where is the sympathy for her?
Something is fishy in Denmark. You're onto something. If Brian was a psycho there would have been red flags concerning his behavior. I haven't read any. The FACT that not one neighbor heard shots from a shot gun is a big red flag!
Finally posting after all these years. Brian was a well known asshole. As the writer said, Brian did not believe in free speech, and had his mods, super mods, and fellow Administrators pull posts off the Forms to be ‘discussed’. He would often ban people for no other reason than ‘control’. Start another site? Well, he’d join using his ‘other’ name at AN, and ‘troll’.
I have always questioned the so-called numbers of people joining the site. Anything can be inflated.
To Dan Hennen:
You, unfortunately, don't have all the facts. Brian was a member of a secret Internet Mastermind group I helped found.
Brian had happen to him what happened to me back in 2011. Overnight Brian lost perhaps 90% of his income.
He was a brilliant man. He was a registered nurse that knew all about drugs.
He dropped into severe depression about his income disappearing like a puff of smoke in a windstorm.
He went to a doctor that prescribed PSYCHOTROPIC drugs. You need to go read the side effects of these evil drugs.
Brian was taking these drugs at the time he murdered his family.
He had no past history of violent behavior.
All you have to ask yourself is one question: "What does it take to put a shotgun barrel to the head of your sleeping child?"
Once again, go read the side effects of these evil drugs. Then, while you're at it, get out a piece of graph paper.
Graph the INTRODUCTION of these against all the mass shootings we've had here in the USA in the past 20 years or so. Then recall how many stories you read about the shooter being "treated for depression".
