judge to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit against the father of dylan redwine. dylan's mother elaine filed the lawsuit against her ex mark redwine four days after the suit expired. the suit should have been filed within two years dylan's remains were found. a lawyer said the suit was filed two years to the day when the family was told the remains were dylan's. his death was ruled a homicide. investigators have said his father is a person of interest, but no criminal charges have been filed. that would have made a civil lawsuit challenging. >> with a criminal case not yet even filed they would not have had access to the police reports. they could not have compelled the father's testimony. so it would have been a difficult case, but no one likes to see their lawsuit dismissed because you filed it a couple of days too late.
it's unusual for a civil case to be filed before a criminal case. it is one of the more disturbing criminal cases in colorado, a pregnant woman stabbed and her baby cut from her womb and left for dead. michelle wilkins survived the attack at her home in longmont last march. her baby did not. tomorrow she will be one of the first witnesses to testify against dynel lane. lane has pled not guilty. two weeks. this week we've explained how problem teachers can go from state to state or district to district without raising red flags. tonight a story that makes you wonder who was really being frequented at one school, the students or -- protected at 1 school, the students or a teacher. jeremy >> reporter: -- teacher. >> reporter: elected to positions of power.
protect students from situations like. this but reluctant to talk about what happened within the walls of dupont elementary, gilbert trujillo, a 4th and 5th grade teacher accused of repeatedly violating innocence of girls in his classroom -- >> i'm just shocked the way the school district handled the trujillo case. >> reporter: -- he kept his job despite several documented complaints from parents and co- workers. the current superintendent said this in june. >> we're looking into that. >> reporter: five girls, some now adults, claim not only were they fondled and kissed, but lavished with expensive gifts and love letters from through hill low. why are you guys hiding -- trujillo. why are you guys hiding behind this? this is my chance to get an explanation from the people in power now. there were at minimum four complaints and warnings about suspicious behavior by trujillo before he was placed on leave in 2008. trujillo remains locked up for
covered the case when he was arrested in june. can the public really trust the adams 14 school district? here's what i've found since then. at least three moms and a co- worker filed complaints. a departing principal even called him creepy. finally in 2008 principal kathy hero knee ma had enough -- heronema had enough and promised to come down hard on trujillo and said he could keep his job if he could avoid touching or hugging students, keep his hands above or on the table and to stop using the word love in class, just what you want a teacher to be told. one of the girls claims she was molested in his class two years after that letter. >> the school district must put children first. >> reporter: i shared that letter with terry miller in arvada who is the president of a nonprofit that tracks sexual
your prosecutors should look into all of the aspects of the case. >> reporter: for the sake of fairness i tried getting kathy heronema's take several times, but she never responded on the school district. good idea. at a meeting i brought up the fact trujillo mysteriously resigned in 2011 and then got back into the class mail. e-mails from the teachers union to district officials seem to indicate a deal was made for trujillo and months later that same year in july the school board approved his rehire as a substitute teacher. i know this is not a q and a session, this public comment, but maybe, but maybe since the school system here was so flexible with mr. trujillo you, the board, can be flexible with
collective answer to one question i have, one question that does not have anything to investigation. what are you guys doing to protect students from situations like this? [ silence ] >> the tragedy of what you're describing, i can't speak for the board or superintendent, but it's quite disgusting and sickening that such allegations we've be made. >> reporter: only the school district's attorney spoke up. >> we have modified our policies and i think that those policies are among the colorado. >> reporter: and the teachers union, what did they know as trujillo's interests? we have nothing to say a spokesperson said in an e-mail declining any interview, not even a written statement.
let's see if we get anybody to talk. hi. my name is jeremy with 9news. i'm here to see if mr. bradley bartell would speak with us? but the union who sticks up for teachers. so there's no chance anybody will speak on behalf of the union on camera about what you guys knew about gilbert trujillo. why are you guys hiding behind this? why aren't you guys talking? didn't want to stick up for themselves. all right. i guess we tried. thank you, mike. bye bye. there you have it. silence. got to wonder why. the school board sent us a letter after the meeting saying they cannot talk about this case because of trujillo's criminal investigation. he'll be in court next month. we tried getting his side, too, several times, but a family member said he declines an interview at this point. >> that's where accountability may come for him. how about for the school administrators and the teachers union?
the district attorney has told the parents in this case not to talk to the press because of the pending investigation, but i can tell you, kyle, there are parents that are upset with hothe rictrihandled this case. i wouldn't be surprised if there's any future law. s on the horizon which may be -- lawsuits on the horizon which may be a reason why nobody's talking. >> thank you. still ahead at 10:00 america has a new top dog tonight. we'll show you the one that took home best in show. >> he's one of the hottest stars on the music scene these days. even sir paul mccartney couldn't get into his party after the grammys. >> 70s in february? kathy's forecast could break some records this week. >> and broncos fans did just
after parties. former beatle sir paul mccartney was denied entry into a party hosted by the rapper tiga. taylor hawkins, drummer, also got turned away. today the rapper tweeted he didn't control the door and didn't even know sir paul was there. rtd set a public transit record in our town celebrating the super bowl win. we received a good number of complaints about rtd that day. surely it was swamped. 409,000 people rode the light rail and shuttle and buses. they saw over 40,000 riders, double a typical day and more than 90,000 took the light rail to the democratic convention in 2008. america has a new top dog. the best in show award was handed out at the westminster kennel club dog show just over an hour ago. the crowd at madison square garden wanted a bulldog named annabelle to win.

wind has been a main player this week, but the warm downsloping winds from the north, northwest have pushed temperatures way above average. still reports of some higher gusts in the 15 to 30 mile-per- hour range and almost 50 miles per hour. the winds are blowing good over berthoud and kenosha pass. no winter weather or travel advisories in effect for colorado, but heavy snow likely for the sierra nevada mountain range with a winter storm warning there, rapid snow melt west of salt lake city and an aerial flood advisory there and montana. the worst weather is east of us, the snow and wind finally subsiding a bit as this next through. cold air will follow this system through while we know joy another mild dry day -- we enjoy another mild dry day even california. high pressure is located just west of us. so all this precip and energy will stay north of us now taking the bull's eye of the
and boston, new york, really no organized storm systems across the lower 48 with the convention of this plunge of cold arctic air taking temperatures into the 20s and 30s across bismarck, minneapolis and chicago while colorado and points westward enjoy high temperatures way above average. on the northwest flow winds light initially, then shifting as the ridge moves directly overhead and pushes east. southwest wind will push lower elevation temperatures above average. the wind will return in about 24 hours, some areas of blowing snow in the high country but not tomorrow, decent travel weather, lows in the mountains in the 20s tonight, 30s for the plains, temperatures rebounding out west but springing literally into the 70s for southeastern colorado, denver, greeley, fort collins close to 70 tomorrow and thursday, decent amount of snow and ice melt around the area as well as it's kind of the early start to mud season but only temporarily. fair sky, light winds now, a bit of wind along the foothills, our low 30. we spring board to the low 60s
both tomorrow and thursday. slight cooling trend heading into the weekend with more mountain snow as early as saturday morning. some of that snow may move into denver sunday, a cooler second half of your weekend. temperatures rebound nicely early next week, back to the 60s, close to 70 the middle part of next week. while it feels like spring in denver, in the high country it still looks like winter to me and way too cold to be out on that lake.
from colorado sports leader here's drew soicher. >> hi, everybody. this seems kind of peculiar. the broncos have no interest in peyton manning anymore, but they have to wait for him to retire before approaching brock osweiler with a contract offer all out of respect and refrains for manning who the broncos would -- and reverentness for manning who the broncos would rather not have to let go and, two, if you're brock osweiler i think there's an assumption. osweiler wants to make sure there's charity of manning before he -- clarity of manning before he comes back for the broncos. he wants to make sure that job is there for him and the only way to make sure that job is there for him in denver is if
