A Colorado father is alleged to have killed his 12-year-old son after the boy had discovered “disturbing” photos of his dad in diapers and eating sh*t. Mark Redwine was arrested on Saturday and indicted for second degree murder and child abuse. Investigators have been mulling over this case for four and a half years. A video was released on Wednesday, showing Redwine’s arrest.
Dylan Redwine originally went missing in November 2012. He visited his father per a court order agreement. His parents had divorced, and Dylan was not getting along with his father as a result of the turmoil, according to the indictment. The boy’s remains were found seven months later scattered in the mountains by wild animals. In November 2015, Dylan’s skull was discovered 1.5 miles away from his father’s home.
Prosecutors believe that Mark Redwine may have killed his son when the 12-year-old discovered unsettling pictures of his father wearing a diaper and eating feces out of the diaper. The prosecution suggests that Mark may have murdered his boy after he was confronted with the “disturbing” photos.
Wine even went as far as to appear on Dr. Phil alongside his ex-wife. Both blamed each other for the death of Dylan.
Cory Redwine, Dylan’s older brother, saw the strange of pictures of his father has has so far been connected to the case. “I have seen the photos. It shows him wearing women’s clothes and makeup and a diaper and then eating his feces from the diaper,” said Cory. “It was disgusting. We couldn’t believe it.”
Dylan’s mother, Elaine Hall, also believes the diaper-feces-photos motive in the death and murder of her son Dylan. “He may have said something that just didn’t set well with Mark and Mark reacted in a very violent way…obviously,” said Hall in February 2015 podcast. “Dylan is no longer here.”
Mark claims that he had returned home from errands and found that his son was missing. In June 2013, partial remains of Dylan was found on Middle Mountain. In November 2015, investigators found Dylan’s skull and were able to determine the cause of his death. The skull had two small marking, possibly from a knife, and appeared to show injuries consistent with blunt force trauma.
Hall believes that her ex-husband was the culprit since day one that Dylan went missing, according to an interview with The Pine River Times. According to the incitement, Hall told authorities that Redwine would “kill the kids before he let her have them.”
In 2014, cadaver dogs sniffed out the scent of a dead body in the bed of Redwine’s pick-up truck. The dog also discovered the scent of a dead body in various locations of Redwine’s house, as well as on the suspect’s clothing the night of Dylan’s disappearance.
Mark Redwine was arrested on Saturday, July 22, 2017. On Wednesday, body cam footage was released showing his arrest. The suspect has been apprehended in Bellingham, Washington, and is being held on a $1 million bond. Redwine faces extradition to Colorado.
