Recently, we have been inundated with bizarre and heinous murder of children by their parents. This case definitely falls into both categories. Dylan Redwine, 13, went missing in November 2012. His body was found seven months later and now the DAs say they think they have the motive.
Dylan was visiting his father pursuant to a court order when he found some grossly disturbing pictures including one where Mark Redwine was eating feces out of a diaper he was wearing. The DAs believe that Dylan began to mock his father who killed him either out of anger or the fear of being found out.
Redwine has consistently denied having killed his son. He even went on TV with Dr Phil, at which time he blamed his ex-wife for his son’s death. His wife blamed him and it was an epic battle sure to get Phil high ratings out of a tragedy.
Cory Redwine, Dylan’s older brother, revealed that he had seen the photos.
‘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. It was disgusting. We couldn’t believe it,’ he told ABC7.
Dylan’s mother, Elaine Hall, added that she believes her son confronted her ex-husband about the photos and was murdered for it.
‘He may have said something that just didn’t set well with Mark and Mark reacted in a very violent way…obviously. Dylan is no longer here,’ Hall said on a February 2015 podcast.
Redwine is being held in Bellingham, Washington, on a $1million bond and is facing extradition to Colorado, the Durango Herald reported.
However, the issue of whether he will fight extradition will be decided at a later date after confusion over whether Redwine was offered his right to waive the hearing.
On Monday, the court was given an outline of the charges against him and bail was set.
In the grand jury indictment, investigators said blood was found in multiple locations in Redwine’s living room, including his couch.
Cadaver dogs even found the scent of a dead body in various locations in the home and on the clothes Redwine wore the night Dylan disappeared, the indictment says.
In 2014, the cadaver dog also picked up the scent of a body in the bed of Redwine’s pickup truck, according to the indictment.
