Meanwhile, missing the parents of a missing Utah farmer Dylan Rounds have shared new theories about what they think may have happened to their son, who disappeared in May. Rounds' family last heard from him as he worked on his farm in Lucin, Utah. His parents, Justin Rounds and Candice Cooley have now said a pair of bloody boots and the location of Rounds' phone may hold some clues to what may have happened to the then 19-year-old. The parents told The East Idaho News the evidence has a link to James Brenner, who has not been charged in the case yet. Brenner is thought to have had contact with Rounds before he went missing. He was arrested for felony gun crimes along with 41-year-old Chase Venstra.
Elsewhere, in California, police found the body of Jolissa Fuentes, after a two-month search for the missing woman. The search for Fuentes became a criminal investigation, three weeks after the 22-year-old woman from Selma went missing from a gas station. Fuentes was last seen at a Selma gas station around 4 am on August 7, about 16 miles south of Fresno, surveillance footage revealed before she was eventually found dead. Authorities said her car left Trimmer Springs Road and crossed over Maxon Road north of Pine Flat Lake, leading to the assumption that an automobile accident caused her death.
