MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra announced Friday that Frank Almond will conclude his tenure as concertmaster at the end of the 2019-20 season.
That name may not sound familiar, but Frank Almond was the victim in one of the most high-profile crimes in Milwaukee history.
"No crime since the Jeffrey Dahmer murders in the early 90's in the city of Milwaukee has been this high-profile on a national and international level," said MPD Captain Jeff Point.
In 2014, Almond was tased outside Wisconsin Lutheran College after a performance there. Three thieves made off with his 300-year-old Stradivarius violin, worth $5 million.
The case received national attention.
The criminals were caught days later, and the violin was not damaged.
