          A Young Man Describes What Led Up To Him Holding His Older Brother In His Arms As He Died

          Ryan’s older brother James Kulstad was shot and killed on April 8, 2018, in Bakersfield, CA.

          “I, literally, just sat there and held him, and I kissed him on the side of his head and told him I loved him,” Ryan says. “I’m never going to get over losing him.”

          One of the things Ryan says makes James’ death so difficult is that it hasn’t been determined who killed him.

          In the video above from Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Ryan recalls what happened the night James was murdered. Why does he think his brother was killed?

          On Monday, hear more from James’ mom about the circumstances surrounding his death. And, hear from two other moms whose children disappeared within six weeks of James’ death, also in Bakersfield. Are the cases of the Bakersfield 3 related? And on Tuesday, a former police detective and a former FBI profiler give a very detailed description of what they believe happened and who they say the possible suspect or suspects could be. Check here to see where you can watch.

          Since the taping of this episode, police have information to believe Micah Holsonbake is the victim of a homicide. If you have any information regarding the deaths of James Kulstad or Micah Holsonbake or the disappearance of Baylee Despot, please call Secret Witness at (661) 332-4040.
