According to Logan Police Department (LPD) Captain Tyson Budge, 23-year-old Jordan Oakden was staying at the home of her boyfriend and his mother, when her ex-boyfriend showed up at the house uninvited early Friday morning.
Captain Budge says 23-year-old Dylan Milian arrived at the home on Riverbend Road at around 6:30 a.m. after texting back and forth with Oakden earlier that morning.
Milian, who might be the father of two of Oakden’s children, became hostile and aggressive, making threats.
Oakden attempted to diffuse the situation by offering to take Milian to work. She went outside to start the car, giving Milian the opportunity to force his way inside.
He was met by Oakden’s new boyfriend 26-year-old Jeremy Boyle, who reportedly already had a contentious past with Milian.
Boyle shot Milian in the chest, who collapsed inside the residence.
Oakden and Boyle’s 53-year-old mother started CPR and continued until relieved by LPD officers and medics, but Milian was pronounced dead at the scene.
Boyle was taken into custody, questioned by investigators who reported he was cooperative, and released later that day.
Captain Budge said LPD detectives are awaiting the autopsy report from the State Medical Examiner’s Office due sometime this week.
Afterwards they will be handing over their findings on the investigation to the Cache County District Attorney’s Office.
“They’re going to have to make a decision if this was justifiable homicide or if this was a murder,” Budge said. “It’s sad, this is an unfortunate event, and we hope to try to prevent these kinds of things.”
Facing potential charges after an already traumatic event like shooting someone in self defense makes a bad situation even worse. Far worse.
Getting self-defense insurance will help to alleviate both financial and mental stress after a defense encounter. USCCA offers some of the best.
