A life of evil is here to investigate the murder of Dr. Cynthia Eason was killed by stepson Dylan Eason and his partner in crime Isaiah Churchwell.
The senseless murder of a popular and well-loved veterinarian has shocked the small town of Burlington on the eastern Colorado plains. Locals were further concerned to learn that one of the perpetrators was Cynthia’s stepson Dylan Ethan. In April 2016, police found Cynthia, 50, beaten to death in her home. A lead led investigators to suspect Eason and Churchwell, and the two were quickly arrested.
Despite being only 19 years old, Eason Chan has repeatedly broken the law. Community members knew he was a troublemaker but were surprised that he actually appealed to murder.
Police concluded that Eason and Churchwell broke into Cynthia’s home and robbed her, but when she interrupted them, they beat her to death. Her cause of death was listed as “blood pressure injury”. The murderous couple are believed to have carried out the vicious attack to nourish their drug habit.
Dylan Eason’s father says his son should be sentenced to death
It’s understandable that Cynthia’s husband and Eason’s father, Jon Eason, lost his wife at the hands of his son. Eason Chan publicly stated before his trial that both killers should be sentenced to death.
Jon Eason told the outlet: “As for me, I don’t have a son anymore. I think they both should face the death penalty.” He also claimed he lost his son “years ago”.
Instead of facing death, Dylan Eason was sentenced to life without parole after a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder and aggravated robbery. Churchwell pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and aggravated robbery and was sentenced to 52 years in prison.
