New Details On The Investigation
Dylan Rounds parents have been speaking with plenty of organizations to help get more answers. Dylan's boots were found on his property with blood on them.

Dylan's father had to smash the back of the window out of the truck to get into it because it was locked and the keys were not to be found. The gun was also nowhere to be found. Dylan typically did not lock his truck and always kept a gun in it. The next day they returned to the trailer, and they found the key to his truck in plain sight on the counter. One day after that they returned and found his gun on the counter, the same place as the keys, in plain sight, where they could not have missed it. Someone had placed them there that was not the family.

Brenner admitted he was the one that moved Dylan's boots, which had blood on them but did not say anything else. The phone that was found had call logs to Brenner and indicated Brenner was also at the pond the same day.
No one has been charged or arrested for Dylan's murder or disappearance. Jim Brenner is in custody but he is charged with felony gun crimes.
