I've read before that Dylan's brother was estranged from the family, though nothing I've seen has gone into any further detail on that other than mentioning drugs played a factor. Can anyone here provide more details?

Seems odd to me that Dylan's family would push their son out of their life like that, even if he was on hard drugs. Seems to me like his family was the more loving/forgiving/understanding type and that they would have done anything to try to help him/keep him safe. Giving their son the ol' "tough love" routine and booting him out onto the streets till he decides to help himself seems like the kind of approach a more conservative minded type family, such as Eric's, would have taken.

Dylan stated in his Diversion documents that his brother had been kicked out of the house and estranged from the family because of drug use.
However, in Sue Klebold's book she said that they did not kick Byron out, he chose to move out. She said they were never estranged and Byron was frequently at the family home for dinner.

Kind of hard to believe which is telling the truth. Sue, with all due respect more than likely has faced her share of demons, but I do believe she still tries to maintain a good look as much as she can.

Exactly. Sue wouldn't be, as they call in policing, an independent witness. She has her own bias and motivation that she cannot, even if she's trying, detach herself from.

I agree. I wasn't saying that I believe Sue or that she is telling the truth (In fact, I tend to believe Dylan), I was just stating what she wrote in her book. Apart from Dylan stating that Byron was estranged from the family in his Diversion documents, Sue's book is the only other source I know of that speaks about the subject. Sue definitely tries (as most people would) to paint herself in the best light possible.
