Father of Dylan Redwine arrested in connection with death

Mark Redwine, the father of Dylan Redwine, 13, who went missing in Colorado in 2012 and his remains were found in June 2013 on Middle Mountain has been arrested, reports KUSA.  He was arrested in Washington where he works as a truck driver.

La Plata County Sheriff’s Dept. called Mark a person of interest in Dylan’s death years before.  Elaine Hall, Dylan’s mom said she believed Mark Redwine had something to do with the disappearance of her son early on in the case.

Back in 2014 it was thought that Mark had been arrested, but he was actually taken to the hospital.

“The police did respond to a 911 call that came from a friend of Mark’s around 2:30 Saturday morning who asked for a welfare check on Mark, according to the Durango Herald.  The call said that Mark thought the police were following him.  The police found Mark at Ellsworth Avenue and Fox Street and they stated he was “disoriented” and armed and was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Melissa Blasius of KUSA elaborated on the story and reported that Mark stated that he thought the police were surrounding him and going to arrest him for the death of Dylan.  When the police responded they found NO weapon on Mark, but he did have two guns in his truck. Later, Mark told KUSA that he had been released from the hospital and that he was “experiencing some paranoia”‘  He attributed it to feeling “stalked by haters, monitored by police and self-medicating.”

According to Elaine Hatfield (Redwine) (Dylan’s mother) during the show, she told Dr. Phil that she had not directly talked to Mark Redwine, Dylan’s father since 2009. This means when Dylan came up missing, they text messaged back and forth instead of talking to each other over the phone, until Mark blocked Elaine’s messages.

In 2013, Mark appeared on the Dr. Phil show to take a polygraph test.  Read more here.

 

A subsequent search in July 2016 found “items of interest,” authorities stated.
