Yes, they were both cremated. I don't think anyone except their families knows where the ashes are. I would guess the parents either kept the ashes or were scattered somewhere.

Sue Klebold has mentioned that there is no burial site for Dylan for fear of shrines and vandalism. Dylan was cremated after his small funeral service.
Eric was also cremated I believe.

I've heard from decent but not confirmed sources Dylan's ashes were spread in the red rocks adjacent to the Klebold home he was raised in. Tom his father, I believe still lives in the home.

Really? I didn't know this. I assumed Tom and Sue would have a little necklace or something with his ashes or something. And I thought the Klebold home was sold?

Well I imagine when Sue and Tom got divorced that he had to buy her half of the house in order to stay there. It really is a shame that they got divorced but I've read that most marriages don't survive the death of child let alone what Dylan and Eric did.

Tom bought the home post divorce. I saw him when I passed the house last year, walking up the driveway.

Were you the one who posted that video (I guess it was on Tumblr) of you and your friend jumping up and down and screaming because you saw Sue in the driveway? Someone posted a video here before of 2 girls screaming cuz they saw Sue walking up the driveway with Tom and her Grandkid, I guess it was, which was kinda odd that she was there since she doesn't live there anymore. Maybe her and Tom still talk? Maybe.

Do you know approximately what year this would have happened? It was said for a few years after that his parents still had his ashes. As far as Eric's I don't know.It was said that years after his parents still had them and was also rumored that they had spread them in a beautiful place in upstate New York.I have no idea if either of those things are true.

Did Eric's family ever have a memorial service for him, like the Klebold's did for Dylan?

@RoseTheHat,
Since I'm on the board now I will answer you.
We don't know for sure.
About a year ago information came to light that Eric did not have a service at the funeral home.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],just re-posted this information a few days ago in a thread here.
Nobody knows if the family had some private memorial service for him at a later date.I sure hope they did and it's almost impossible for me to imagine that they didn't.

was new to Columbine as a hobby when I heard it, but not savvy enough at the time to ask more questions to qualify or get more in depth such as when.

Slightly off topic but here's probably as appropriate a thread as I can find...

We know Dylan had the stuffed beanie babies to help disguise some of the head trauma he suffered.

Eric's head was on a whole other level and beanie babies weren't going to cover up that mess. He will have had a closed casket at whatever service he had I imagine. My question is would they have somehow attempted to close the huge gaping wound or just dumped his corpse in the box? And what will have become of the huge amounts of brain matter that were scattered about? I know they can't have got it all in there but I'm thinking the large amount that spilled out of his head when they moved his body - did that go in the casket with him or was it just thrown in the trash after the autopsy was complete?

Good question for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But I am willing to bet it was a closed casket ceremony if any and that he was directly cremated.  As far as the brain matter it was probably just cleaned up at the scene and willing to bet they didn't take any such cares to making sure his brain stayed with his body

Hahaha I don't know...Never really thought about that until now. Makes me wonder if Eric's parents ever saw him AFTER the massacre, meaning A: the funeral or B: the suicide photos. I mean..wouldn't you have to identify and verify that it is in fact your son? Idk, I think of messed up shit like that a lot. I'd imagine they at least touched him up so he wasn't still covered in blood, but then again if you're going to be cremated anyway..then what's the point? Idk if they even had a funeral for Eric. I like know zero about the Harris' side of things since they never went public besides the depositions, which obviously are still locked away. ~_~

Can't even grasp that Eric's brain was no longer with him

Yeah it's a strange one. I mean, that big dollop of brains that spilled out had to go somewhere, right? I can't see them performing the autopsy and just scooping them back in his head once they've finished and leaving it to fall out again. Maybe they do some sort of doggy bag they just put in his hand before they sent him off to whatever funeral place burnt him. They just put all his separate bits in that were no longer properly attached (brains, eyeball, skull etc) and just incinerated them with the rest of him.

Well I imagine when Sue and Tom got divorced that he had to buy her half of the house in order to stay there. It really is a shame that they got divorced but I've read that most marriages don't survive the death of child let alone what Dylan and Eric did.

after Sue's book was released and the tv interviews divulged the divorce, some prior research starting making sense. I/others saw a few mortgage transactions on the primary Klebold home over the years. Initially I thought it was likely to be a refi for multiple possible reasons:

-better rates
-free up cash flow as they were getting hammered with lawsuits/legal fees
-"creative accounting"... Tom runs the real estate mgmt co out of the house so it's technically an office by portion/percentage

We now know at least one of those refi's was to secure "division of assets" for which was the Klebold divorce settlement.

Sue lives in Centennial.. 15 or so minutes SE of Littleton. That I know for certain or at least as of late 2016. Tom I've been told was in the house thru 2015 and likely is still there as I've seen no other transactions aside from the refi due to the divorce. Only other reasonable option may be that he still owns it but moved out and leases it to a family, but I'd bet he's still in it.

Hard to say what the reality of the boys funerals, burials vs cremations etc are.. Between bad info and smoke screens "fact" may not be reality. I recently was trying to chase down some research that suggested Eric was buried in the same site (Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Centennial, CO) as a few of the victims and literally less than a 100 feet from Rachel Scott's grave, before being removed for fears of discovery/vandalism.

Never came up with anything and highly doubt the merit of the rumor. If the research was easy it wouldn't be as fun I guess.

Eric's parents probably didn't see the body until after his autopsy and they probably did clean him up as best as they could. I don't remember how bad his head looked in the suicide picture but it's possible they just wrapped up part of his head in gauze so his parents could see him..

Or maybe his parents saw him as he was (gaping hole and all) just minus the blood. Same goes for people identifying/seeing burn victims (no covering that up)


As morbid as I can be (looking at crime scene photos rarely bothers me) I'm glad I didn't have to see Eric in person....

Again wandering slightly off topic - do you this the parents/ brothers ever see the suicide photos by accident when browsing the internet or reading a news article in the paper or something? I know I've seen it a couple of times before when not even looking for something Columbine specific. That'd be horrific if you were just having your morning coffee then saw your son with half his head missing.

Daniel Mauser was shot in the face, right? The funeral photo I saw, it seems like the funeral home did a great job on him. Do you think that maybe the home that Eric's body was released to, did what they could to his head? I'm thinking something along the lines of a fake skull top or as was mentioned, gauze.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

did a little digging on the Dylan/ashes topic..

rumor mill and internet are consistent, 2 theories:   ashes with family (internet specifically said over the fireplace in an urn) and others say "spread" in a special place.  The latter confused with where Eric's ashes were spread?  Vice versa?

I've also read that on Dylan's bday his father Tom takes a Dr. Pepper and young Dylan's koala bear up to the area they hiked together.

Call it speculation or educated guess, but if someone can confirm the exact area Dylan & Tom Klebold traditionally went hiking tgether, that's a pretty strong chance to be the location of the ashes.

If I lost one of my children I can 100% guarantee that every year on their bday I'm visiting their resting place..  if the ashes are in an urn, I'm taking them to "our special place" or the place the best puts me in connection with them.  The article detailed what Tom took to the hiking location..  no mention of urn.  Would support the ashes are at the location special hiking place.

If I had to bet, I'm going with the "hiking location"


edit: still digging and saw a post from our own [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] back in '10. similar if not exact theory and support that I just posted.

Thank you for your responses.It's sort of strange for me to think that E &D's ashes are no longer with their families and if they have been scattered no longer even exist as the elements would soon erode them away. I don't know that I could ever let my child's ashes go in such a circumstance but I can't blame anybody for doing what they thought was right for them.If the ashes have been scattered maybe E&D's parents came to believe that's what E &D would have wanted or maybe it became to agonizing to even have the ashes in the house anymore.If they did scatter the ashes, I do hope it brought the families a small amount of comfort and peace.

You never truly know though...they could've spread most of the ashes but held onto a portion of it in their possession somewhere...I mean, that's what I would do. Because once you spread the ashes, they're gonna eventually become nothing, as you said.

I think it's a personal thing.. oddly my will includes my ashes being spread, but I wouldn't want that for loved ones.

so you are saying we just doubled our odds of locating Dylan's "resting place"?Smile
