The Murder of Ally Brueger

Alexandra ‘Ally’ Brueger (31) was shot and murdered while jogging in her parent’s neighborhood on July 30th, 2016. Ally was working as a nurse at the time, and she had also recently moved back in with her parents at their home in Holly, Michigan after breaking up with her ex-boyfriend Wes Sutherland. Ally and Wes had previously lived together for 2 years.

Ally had a passion for running. According to her parents, she would run 10 miles each day without any exceptions. On the day she was murdered, Ally was shot multiple times in the back while running on one of her regular routes. She ran to the house of a local homeowner in the area while trying to flee her attacker. The local homeowner called 911, and told dispatchers, “there’s a girl laying in my yard that just got shot a couple of times. Laying face down, she’s bleeding all over the place. I gotta get out there and see if I can help her.” The homeowner attempted to plug Ally’s wounds until paramedics showed up, but unfortunately she was pronounced dead by time she arrived at the hospital. 

Ally’s murder still remains unsolved today. However, many leads have been chased. Investigators initially stated that everyone in Ally’s life was a suspect–including her ex-boyfriend Wes, and her parents, Nikki and Franz Brueger. Wes himself pointed fingers at Ally’s parents as well. In fact, Wes made accounts on both Websleuths and Reddit, where he continued to state negative things about Nikki and Franz. Eventually, though, Nikki and Franz were ruled out as suspects, while Wes still remains on the potential suspect list. He continues to deny involvement in Ally’s murder.

Ally’s murder is still actively being investigated. If you have any information that could help, please report it by calling 1-855 MICH TIP.
UPDATE (July 2021):

Five years have passed since Ally's murder. Although the tragic case still remains unsolved, new details about the investigation have to come to light. Early into the investigation, authorities announced that they believed Ally knew her killer. Now, Ally's parents have revealed that investigators no longer believe this to be the case. 

In an interview with local reporters, Ally's mother explained, "The lead detective for the case, as well as the First Lt. in that division both told me the wrong information is out there. Ally did not know her killer." Ally's ex-boyfriend was considered a suspect by many in the years that followed Ally's murder. Ally's parents now fear that public perception that Ally knew her killer has skewed the investigation. They are hoping that this new information will allow witnesses to recall details that they might have previously discounted in the early stages of the investigation.

Authorities are asking anyone who might have seen either Ally or  "a vehicle speeding or driving erratically in the area of Fish Lake Road, S. Fenton Road or anywhere nearby on July 30, 2016" to please come forward.


  1. Hey Wes, time is running out. The MSP are closing in and ready to arrest their suspect. Give you one guess who he is Wes my soon to be convict friend. ROTFLMAO.
    One piece of advice, don't bend over if you drop your soap in the shower with thee other fellows.

  2. Why haven't they arrested that sob Sutherland. He's done everything short of confess to it.

  3. Wes, Wes, Wes how do you live with yourself? You are a narcissistic socio-path and killer.

  4. Cases like this drive me insane because it seems like they're more likely to be solved.
