He was living with two older cousins and his brothers Nick Koshman and Colin Demasson. They were renting a house on the city's south side. On October 11, Colin and Dylan got into a fight.
Koshman left the house and the family never saw him again

If this  group were responsible for Dylan's disappearance, surely his brothers would not be involved?


I hope that police have some info for this family.  Ten years - how cruel if someone is holding back.

Iirc, the cousins came home at a point and that is when everything escalated?

Not that poly info can be used in court but at least it might help pinpoint who the liars are. Everyone concerned didn't come near to what neighbors had to say about the violence that night.

The rewards are being made available to the general public for a three-year period, the Edmonton Police Service said in a news release Thursday.

Police hope the rewards "will be the impetus to motivate someone to come forward with critical information that will significantly advance these investigations," Staff Sgt. Duane Hunter said in the release.
"Most importantly, however, our priority as investigators is to deliver some answers to family members and loved ones who have struggled with the nightmare of not knowing what happened to their loved ones for far too long."

The new rewards brings to 36 the total number of rewards worth $40,000 each offered in connection with unsolved homicides.
The new rewards are connected to the following homicide investigations:
Dylan Koshman, 21, disappeared Oct. 11, 2008 from a home near 104th Street and 33rd Avenue under suspicious circumstances. He has not been heard from or seen since that date.The homicide section has taken over the investigation.

David Labelle, 30, was killed Nov. 22, 2014, in a residence near 133rd Street and 155th Avenue. Several people were present at the time.

Robert Loyer, 46, was killed May 5, 2016. He was found seriously injured in the area of 106th Avenue and 96th Street, and later died in hospital, as a result of injuries consistent with blunt force trauma.  At that time, several persons were seen fleeing the area where the assault occurred.

Gherezghiher (Gary) Yemane, 63, was shot multiple times May 27, 2016, while out for an evening walk in the area of Ozerna Road in northeast Edmonton. Investigators believe Yemane was randomly targeted. 


Leonardo Duran Ibanez, 42, of Colombia, was killed on Nov. 13, 2016. Ibanez was walking home late at night with a friend in the area of 119th Avenue and 97th Street when he was confronted by a group of people. He was physically assaulted and died in hospital as a result of his injuries.


Anyone with information about these investigations is asked to contact Edmonton police at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.

A witness report was shown on this site, written by one of his cousins. It was hand written by him.  I cannot locate it...… is it still here?

In it the cousin said - and this is important, I have never forgotten it;

"I turned around to get another drink, and when I looked up, Dylan was gone."

and yet - in the news report, he said "I left the room to get another drink, and when I returned he was gone"

Big difference.

Yikes!!

The 21-year-old moved in with his two older first cousins, brothers Nick Koshman and Colin Demasson, who were renting a house on the city's south side.
On Thanksgiving weekend, Dylan was feeling homesick. He invited another first cousin from Moose Jaw — Cameron Koshman — to visit. These were his cousins, not his brothers (clarified to correct error)

(see witness statement in the link)

In his statement to police, Colin wrote that when he got home in the early morning of Sat. Oct. 11, 2008, "I confronted them [Dylan and Cameron] and told them to leave. We argued and a fight/wrestling match broke out."
Colin went on to write that after the wrestling match he continued to argue with Dylan and told him to "get out, he didn't live here anymore. Come back and get his stuff later. He left out the back."

His brother Nick, who also declined to speak with the program, prepared a nine-page account of what happened after his aunt asked him to write it out several days after Dylan's disappearance so that he wouldn't forget anything.

Nick wrote that he heard Dylan and Cameron planning on fighting with Colin when he returned home and he texted Colin to warn him. 
After Colin came home, he and Dylan "went at it, pushing each other around. They make it to the floor and Dylan's been throwing punches and Colin looked like he was going more to restrain Dylan rather than hurt him."

Nick says that he turned around "to get a drink and when I came back to see, Dylan had left and Colin said he went out the back."

He said in a telephone interview that after Dylan was kicked out of the house, he hurriedly grabbed his things from Dylan's bedroom in the basement and went out the same door that Dylan left from.
According to Cameron's phone records, someone used Dylan's phone to call Cameron at 3:30 a.m. several times in the span of one minute. Cameron says he missed all the calls because he was simultaneously calling 911 to report that he was hiding from Colin, whom he alleges was trying to beat him up.
At least two neighbours also called 911 to report fighting, which moved from inside the house onto the front lawn.

In addition to the four first cousins, Nick's girlfriend was also in the house that night. There is no indication that she was involved in the fight.

A lot of questions here.  No mention that the fighting spilled over to the front lawn.
