Salt Lake City, UT – A man has been charged with murder in connection to the disappearance of Dylan Rounds, a 17-year-old boy from Utah. The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Michael Chad Breinholt, was arrested on Wednesday and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail.
Rounds was last seen on July 15, 2019, and his disappearance sparked a massive search effort by law enforcement and volunteers. Despite extensive searches, Rounds’ whereabouts remained unknown until recently when new evidence led investigators to Breinholt.
According to court documents, Breinholt was a friend of Rounds’ family and had been with the teenager on the day he went missing. The documents also allege that Breinholt had made statements to others indicating that he had killed Rounds.
Breinholt has been charged with one count of murder, a first-degree felony, and one count of obstruction of justice, a second-degree felony. He is being held without bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
The Rounds family released a statement expressing their gratitude to law enforcement for their tireless efforts in finding their son. “We are relieved that someone has been charged in Dylan’s disappearance, but our hearts are still heavy with the loss of our beloved son,” the statement read.
The investigation into Rounds’ disappearance is ongoing, and anyone with information is urged to contact the Salt Lake City Police Department. – Wasatch Defense Lawyers does not represent any parties mentioned above.
