Will Mark Redwine take the polygraph test tomorrow?

Many of you saw the Dr. Phil show on the missing Dylan Redwine case, if not you can watch the show in it’s entirely above.

Dylan went missing during the 2012 Thanksgiving holidays the following morning (assumingly) after his dad picked him up from the airport.

 

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.

Mark Redwine and Corey’s text messages

Dr. Phil focused his questions on Mark during the latter half of the show, and it ended with Mark admitting he failed the lie detector test.  I talked about the polygraph test before and you can read about it in this article.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) we will find out if Mark will be taking another polygraph test or not.

Although polygraph tests are not submittable in court they do tell a lot.  Just whether someone will take a test or not says something.  But, before you jump to conclusions on Mark Redwine’s polygraph outcome tomorrow (that is if he takes it) or the fact that he said he failed the test before, I do want to tell you a couple of things, so that you can watch today’s show (if you haven’t already seen it) and tomorrow’s show with an open mind.

First let me start with this story from August 2011, about Breeann Rodriguez, 3, who went missing, while she was riding her bicycle outside her home.   It was announced on the Nancy Grace show that both of her parents’ failed the polygraph test.

“I don’t know, honestly, honestly, When my wife went in there first to do the polygraph and she failed it, I mean, of course as a father when someone tells you they failed a polygraph, it automatically raises doubt,” said Edgar Rodriguez, Breeann’s father.  “I don’t know to be completely honest with you, I don’t believe we really did fail it. It may be some kind of tool they use to squeeze every bit of information out of us…I don’t really know. But they said we did fail it.”

The fact that the parents failed the lie detector test was confusing.  They were obviously worried about their daughter, and the fact they failed the test was confusing, to say the least.  Could they have really done something to her?  Was it an accident?  Then two days later, Shawn Morgan a neighbor that lived three houses away, was arrested and charged with 1st degree murder in the killing of Breeann.  Morgan himself, said he saw her on the steps of the ladder of his above ground swimming pool and grabbed her and took her inside then suffocated her with a white plastic trash bag.  Even though the polygraph said the parent’s were lying, they had nothing to do with their daughter’s death.

 

Breeann Rodriguez’ parents

Back in January, 2012, I listened to the “Bring Them Home Now” show on Blog Talk Radio.  The host Rachel Jackson had Libby Christ, a Polygraph Examiner on her show.

The show helped me learn a lot about  polygraph test and actually helped me to understand how someone could fail it.  Click here to read more about that at the bottom half of the Ayla Reynolds article.  First, who is giving the test does have an awful lot to do with the outcome of the test.  This was brought up on the Dr. Phil show and Dr. Phil explained to Mark Redwine that he would have the best examiner give him the test, so that there was no doubt that failing the test was because of an inexperienced examiner.

Libby went on to explain what would cause someone to fail a test. She noted that for the best results the person who is taking the test should be only given about 10, yes or no questions.

She also explained that an inconclusive result could be caused by someone that is confused by the question or their is a language confusion, or the testee is on drugs.  (The defense that Hailee Dunn’s mom, Billie Jean used when her’s came back inconclusive-although she failed the second one.)  They can be inconclusive also if the testee is trying different things to alter the results  like moving too much or putting a tack in your shoe or contracting the anal sphincter, which is considered sabotage.  The examiner would rule the person was being deceptive and therefore inconclusive.  Trained examiners will pick up on deceptions.

“They are very easy to see,” said Libby.

Interestingly, the bottom line is only 5 to 10 percent of people given a polygraph test are inconclusive, according to Libby.  What is left is you pass or fail.

Remember Mark said he failed.  He did not say it was considered inconclusive.

There are times that people can fail a test, but they will not fail if they are nervous.  An examiner knows how to account for that and are expecting the individual to be nervous.

A person can fail a test, though, if a question is not controlled and is an open-ended ambiguous question given by the examiner.  For example, if an examiner asked, did you cause your child to go missing.

“The reason they fail it, is because they are thinking, ‘I let the child go outside and play that day, and feel responsible.’  A better question is do you know where that child is now,” said Libby.

Keep the above insights in mind when you are listening to the Dr. Phil show tomorrow.  If Mark takes the test and if he fails….again, with Jack Trimarco, an examiner that is at the top of his field, there is not many more excuses left to defend his innocence.

Also, you will hear about a female postal worker saying she believed she saw Dylan walking with another boy and he had his backpack.  This has never been confirmed as a positive sighting, although the mail carrier does fully believe she saw Dylan.
