A photo from what we think is the alleged killer's Facebook profile.
As grief sweeps through the South Florida live music scene with the news of promoter-drummer Jimmy Pagano's death, a man accused of fatally stabbing him early Sunday morning is hospitalized at Broward General Medical Center. Find more details of the altercation here.

Police haven't released many details on the accused attacker, 38-year-old Brian Edward Krebs, but his social media profiles reveal details about him as a business owner working on his master's degree.

Update: It turns out that American Pie's Stifler character was inspired by Krebs.

One of his pages also includes now-eerie quotes, including one about serial killers. And another movie quote talks about how we "spend our whole lives trying to stop death" and "praying, fighting, killing."

As of Monday afternoon, Krebs is receiving treatment following injuries received in the
brawl at Fishtales Bar & Grill in Fort Lauderdale's North Beach neighborhood, according to a police report. He faces charges of first degree murder and four counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

According to his Linkedin profile, Krebs' listed occupation is the owner of Oncology & Biotech Recruiting. The site says he was working on a master's degree in Pharmacology from the University of Michigan, and was previously employed as a sales representative for Eli Lilly and Co., selling Prozac and Zyprexa in downtown Chicago. Krebs' Facebook page includes several photos, many of him smiling and playing golf.

The Linkedin page also lists him as a 1991 graduate of East Grand Rapids High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, an all-conference football and hockey player, and all-state pitcher on the baseball team. His school history also includes earning an associate's degree in 1993 from the University of Florida, a bachelor's in Molecular Biology from Western Michigan University in 1995, and holding offices in the Sigma Chi Fraternity.

Several favorite quotations are also listed on this Facebook page. Among them is an extended passage from The Life of David Gale, a film about a death penalty protester who is sent to death row after being accused of killing a fellow activist.

"We spend our whole lives trying to stop death. Eating, inventing, loving, praying, fighting, killing. But what do we really know about death? Just that nobody comes back. But there comes a point in life - a moment - when your mind outlives its desires, its obsessions, when your habits survive your dreams, and when your losses... Maybe death is a gift. You wonder."

Looks like his premeditated murder is or has been pled down to 2nd degree murder, but the 4 counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon have been changed to 2nd degree attempted murder (worse)... Not a Capitol offense anymore but will get life with no parole for sure. No insanity plea...even though he clearly is.

I'm so disgusted that I actually knew and was friends with this guy for a short time until I saw his evil side. He did some pretty toxic stuff to me. He is a terribly fucked up human being. I am so sorry for the family and friends who lost an innocent person. He doesn't believe in God, which is not a crime obviously. But I wish he had some higher power guidance or a moral compass and maybe this could have been avoided. RIP Jimmy.

This piece of garbage must've had some sick fetish for knives. After what I've just read this was obviously not the 1st time. He actually left the bar to go home and get his steak knives before his cowardly rampage. Hopefully he lives so he can become someone's bitch in prison. Only because other patrons put their lives in danger did this crazed animal not murder anyone else.

I did not know Jimmy, but have read so much in the news of this tragedy that he was a very good man and a great friend to many.....I am of the understanding that the killing occurred at the Fishtales Restaurant Bar at approximately 4:00AM? If that is correct, my consternation over how such a liquor-serving establishment could be open at that ungodly hour for the purpose of selling drinks is most likely justified. That is an egregious practice, given the widespread incidence of crimes in cities between the hours of 12:00 A.m. and 6:00 PM. Criminals and murderers who want to rob and kill people are ever busy at those hours and crime statistics support that fact.....The Fishtales restaurant should be held legally accountable for this killing and the city in which it is situated as well, for creating those conditions which allowed an armed and known local troublemaker (as per below comments) who typically didn't pay his bar tab to be able to hurt others on the premises of the bar establishment.- at a time of night/early morning when that establishment within all reason, should have been closed. I wish all good tidings and peace to Jimmy"s family and loved ones and extend my sincere condolences.

Just found out the Syco used to live in my building 9 months ago. He always kept to himself and I only saw him a few times and one of those few times he was being taken away in an ambulance. He got into a fight with someone in one of the bars in LBS we live in a secure building and he could not get in. Bloody he goes in the back door to Pa DeGennaro's and tries to get a knife from the kitchen and they throw him out and call police. Some how he found his key and got in then went into his apartment. Cops had to break in a steel door as he would not answer but meanwhile was bleeding all over our building..... allot. They got in and took him away, He got thrown out shortly after. WTF when are cops in this area going to do a better job (LBS) red flags were all over this one! They let drunks get away with quite literally murder in this case. Talk about adding salt to a wound Jimmy was a friend of mine for years. This pricks blood was all over the gate for like 2 weeks till they finally cleaned it up. Too bad he did not die that night. That was only about 10 months ago

I went to high school with Brian, but hadn't seen nor heard from him since the mid 90's. When I say I went to high school with him, it was the 2nd of 3 that he attended in four years. His mom moved him from school to school, cuz he couldn't stay out of trouble. I haven't seen his facebook page, but I can tell you he didn't do all that stuff in high school that he says he did. He was a decent football player and tennis player, but I never remember him playing hockey or baseball. And yes, he did have quite the temper and was known as a crazy guy. I can't say I'm suprised he flipped out on someone, and I'm sad to see this happen to an innocent person.

Is it possible to verify some of this douchebag's claims about himself? Like how he was such a top performer for selling pills? If he was that good, seems like there would be no reason for him to leave a job like that. Did his current business have any actual clients? Was he really attempting to obtain a masters degree?

This Krebs bum reminds me a lot of that Ryan Levine trustafarian scumbag (of which there are far too many that gravitate here). Would not be a surprise to me to find out he had a lot of inflated statements at best in his online bio's.

Sounds like the other bar patrons kicked the crap out of him pretty good, hopefully he'll have a long time to not heal while he's getting repeatedly prison-raped.

What a sick pervert he is>> Taking a life over $8.00 so sick he should have been beaten so bad it would take him years to heal and suffer of pain like Jimmy's family and friends are doing. You sick miserable person of a human. You retarded reject from the North Pole. You should have to suffer you sick excuse of a human.

Just to address the past two commenters, Facebook and LinkedIn are both enormous databases of very real information created by real people. Just to put it in perspective, every time we put up a report like this, we have to also corroborate our facts with public records, police reports, and our own reporting.

The information posted online by a man who is accused of murdering another man is essential in 2011, and can help us piece together who he is when he isn't willing/able to speak on his behalf.

Regarding the comment: "If you were to read most people's Facebook comments almost all of us could be portrayed as a murderer."I am grateful that the majority of human interactions on Facebook (and in public bars) are nothing of the sort.

REALLY???? you are basing your "facts" on facebook quotes and unreleased information? What kind of reporting is that? there is no doubt that a horrible thing happened and that Krebs will be held accountable. But how about we report REAL facts other than speculation....I mean if you were to read most people's Facebook comments almost all of us could be portrayed as a murderer.....

This is perhaps the worst, laziest "reporting" I have ever read. Krebs sounds like a drunk and a belligerent monster, for sure, but writing up an entire piece based on tidbits you gathered from Facebook and LinkedIn is RIDICULOUS. That quote means squat! I hope you don't get paid for this crap.

Florida should have the same Death Penalty Laws as Texas. In Texas, if 3 or more credible witnesses Saw You Commit a Murder, You don't wait for 20 years while the tax payers Support you. You Go Straight To The Front Of The Line. Brian Krebs, YOU MURDERED OUR FRIEND OVER A BAR TAB!GOD Will Handle You. By The way, God, You Might Want to Use TEXAS LAW as your guidelines.

REST IN PEACE BROTHER JIMMY! WE ALL LOVE YOU!

Not that anyone cares what I think but I would like to see this buffoon get the electric chair. This loser was armed, unprovoked and killed an innocent man. There are four more families that can count their lucky stars that they didnt lose someone as well.

What a douche. He'll probably end up going free just like the other guy, Rich Lippner, you wrote about...

I find it disturbing and repulsive that you feel a bar, a city or a particular time of day are in any way responsible for the evil actions of a lunatic and the death of a great man. By doing so, you actually further the moral decay in our society that allows persons like Krebs to remain free and murder innocent people. There is only one man responsible for this horrible incident and I pray he pays the ultimate price. To deny even an ounce of his responsibility and apply it elsewhere is criminal in and of itself.

May Krebs be forgotten and Jimmy Pagano rest in peace.

Have to say I worked at a bar near fishtales. Brian would often not pay his tabs and make trouble. Facebook was a tool for work that's all he didn't put anything real in there.

I was in school with Brian in MI. He was a sick person back them and it looks like nothing changed. All the things he posted about him self are lies. I'm sorry that it took this long for him to be to jail
