“Nathan was a product of his environment,” Bilbrey said. “But he also had a huge heart, was his brother’s protector, loved fishing, baseball and football.”

Robert Wylie, 40, is being held on a $100,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail on an unrelated charge stemming from a Dec. 17, 2016, traffic stop in which he was found with drugs.
Dayton police officers testified last week that Nathan was in the SUV with his father and Robert Wylie’s girlfriend when the father was found with heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
