SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) — At least three people have been questioned by authorities in the Dylan Rounds missing persons case.
All have criminal records. One has been indicted on unrelated charges, the other is in custody on an outstanding warrant and the third remains a free man.
The rounds that disappeared in late May are being investigated by authorities, including the FBI. This is called a missing person/criminal investigation. And a $100,000 reward is being offered for information on his whereabouts.
And every night, social media sleuths host podcasts that draw in hundreds of callers, some of Dylan’s neighbors. On True Crime with Jess, she interviewed Curtis Wadsworth who was friends with Dylan. He considered him a good friend.
“(Dylan) is a hardworking young boy who had a dream and asked me to be part of it,” Wadsworth said on the podcast. “(I worked) as a backhoe operator, that’s all.”
Wadsworth lives in the town of Montello, Nevada, about 30 miles from Lucin in Box Elder County. Dylan ran his own farm near Lucin. Wadsworth told listeners the 19-year-old sometimes stays in his mobile trailer. He is angry that people are linking him to his disappearance.
“If you don’t believe in me that I know what I know, I’m the one to fix this,” he said. “I know everything about Dylan. They know absolutely nothing about Dylan’s life.
But he seemed more interested in clearing his name than worrying about Dylan’s disappearance. The host asked him if he wanted Dylan found.
“No, if nothing else just to rub people’s faces in it,” he said. “I’m going to piss them off. All (his accusers).
In federal court, felon James Brenner was charged with unlawful possession of firearms.
In their complaint, the FBI claimed he was “squatting in a trailer” on Dylan’s property. The day Dylan went missing he called a friend saying ‘he was getting the grain truck to safety’
On another Youtube channel, a neighbor of Dylan claimed to have notified the FBI after finding tire tracks that appeared to belong to Dylan. He also said a man currently being held in Davis County was arrested by authorities after he was seen carrying a gun while walking down the road. It was two days before Dylan disappeared. And that’s the same man that Dylan met walking down the road who was bloody.
“From the things I’ve seen, I believe (*) did it,” T. Corbin said on the podcast. “I can’t mention things I’ve seen and I’m not going to but I believe (*) did this and it will come out in the wash which
According to court documents, this man from the Davis County jail is at risk of being extradited to Montana for an outstanding warrant.
On June 8, he waived his right to an extradition hearing. A final extradition review is scheduled for July 8 in Davis County. Meanwhile, Dylan’s family has issued a cease and desist order againstJames Terry
the private detective hired by Dylan’s grandparents.
The letter reads as follows:
Dear Mr. Terry:
My office has been retained by the Rounds and Cooley families to send you this letter and
demand that you immediately cease and desist from your continued unauthorized involvement in the Dylan
Round cases. You have made malicious, unfounded and incorrect statements and made verbal statements
and written attacks on the Rounds and Cooley families. Your Unauthorized, Fake Malicious Pursuit
and inflammatory remarks are defamatory and expose you to the payment of damages to my clients.
Your actions divert attention from the search for Dylan Rounds to what appears to be your own
vendetta and/or promote themselves at the expense of the truth. You interfere with and
undermine the investigation into the disappearance of Dylan Rounds. You undermine the integrity and
the effectiveness of the entire investigation by your unauthorized and misinformed actions both publicly
and in private regarding this investigation.
The family of Dylan Rounds immediately asks you to cease and desist from any further action,
verbal and/or written regarding the investigation into the disappearance of Dylan Rounds. Your inability to stop
any other action, verbal and/or written, will result in the filing of legal action against you. The family of
Dylan Rounds does not want to waste his time, resources and energy with further actions against you
in this matter and therefore requests your immediate compliance.
Your background and service history confirmed your lack of credibility and integrity. This
has further been demonstrated by your actions in this case since your release from this case.
Dylan’s mother said the letter was sent to two different emails associated with him, but was not delivered because the address was invalid. In response, James Terry told ABC4 he was not served. He said he is moving across the country and does not have a valid email address.
“If you can’t find me, you can’t serve me,” Terry told ABC4.
