GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Kent County mother is turning her pain into purpose after her son was killed by his own father in the late summer of 2021.
Katie Hall has never talked on camera about her loss until now.
Dylan Thebo was just three years old when his father, Derek, shot and killed him, before turning the gun on himself. Ever since, Katie Hall has been on a mission to create change in the family court system.
Katie Hall remembers Dylan as a kid who loved Paw Patrol and to ride his bike.
“Dylan, he was a spirited kid. He loved to sing. Loved to dance. Loved his mom and his big sister. Loved to ride his bike and play soccer. He was full of life, and unfortunately that was cut short way too soon,” Dylan’s mom, Katie Hall, said.
