FOLEY, Minn. (AP) - A Foley man whose body was found this week after a three-month disappearance was a victim of foul play, Benton County authorities said.

An autopsy determined that Jamie Robert Wylie, 31, died as a result of homicidal violence, the St. Cloud Times reported (http://on.sctimes.com/1ldtm80http://on.sctimes.com/1ldtm80 ).

Wylie was last seen Dec. 10, and family and friends conducted searches without success. A passer-by spotted his body Tuesday behind an auto dealership.

Police executed a search warrant Dec. 20 at Wylie’s home where they found Wylie’s wallet and ID.

8 of 77 Minnesota orchestra board members resign

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Eight of the 77 members on the Minnesota Orchestral Association Board have resigned after CEO Michael Henson stepped down last week, with at least one person questioning the manner in which Henson’s departure was handled.

Henson’s stormy tenure included a labor dispute and 16-month lockout. He’ll leave in August as part of a negotiated package approved by a divided board March 20, three weeks after board members voted 40-8 to support him.

“I may never know the real story of how the Board got from a strong vote of confidence for Henson on February 28th to showing him the door on March 20th,” John P. Whaley wrote in a letter to board chairman Gordon Sprenger.

Also resigning was Teri E. Popp, a Wayzata attorney. She said encouraging Henson to step down after he’d worked so hard to keep the orchestra afloat sends the wrong message to future applicants.

Sprenger said he was disappointed to receive any resignation.
