On November 18, 2012, 13-year-old Dylan Redwine traveled from his mother Elaine’s house in Colorado Springs to visit his father Mark in Vallecito, Colorado for a court-ordered visit. According to Dylan’s big brother, Cory, Dylan was not looking forward to visiting his father. A while back, Dylan had accidentally come across compromising and disturbing photos of his father. The photos disgusted him and he planned to confront Mark.
Mark Redwine picked up Dylan at the airport. On the way to Mark’s house, they stopped at Walmart and picked up fast-food at McDonalds. Throughout his trip, Dylan had been communicating with his Durango friends and making plans to see them. Text messages indicated that Dylan tried to make plans to stay with a friend nearby rather than with his father. When Mark said no to that plan, Dylan made plans to see his friend at six-thirty the next morning.
Join us at the quiet end for Dylan Redwine’s Last Visit. Dylan’s last phone activity was at 9:37 p.m. on November 18. He failed to show up at his friend’s house the next morning. Mark claimed that Dylan was asleep on his couch when he left his home at 7:30 a.m. that morning and that when he returned at 11:30 a.m., Dylan was gone. As the last person to see his son alive, Mark Redwine was immediately a person of interest. Sigmond Freud once said “I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” Not only did Mark Redwine fail to protect Dylan, he was the one who Dylan needed protection from.
