Mark Redwine Arrested for Son’s Death

The case has haunted investigators and the public for almost half a decade, and it may now be one step closer to being solved. Police have arrested Mark Redwine for the 2012 death of his 13-year-old son Dylan – almost 5 years after the boy disappeared

Mark Redwine’s arrest Saturday in Bellingham, Washington, follows a grand jury indictment for second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. The indictment included several lines of evidence that led the grand jury to its’ decision: blood found on his couch and in his living room, the scent of a dead body in his truck and on the clothes he wore the night his son was last seen, and bizarre comments that suggested investigators would have to find his son’s skull in order to determine how he died.

Dylan’s partial remains were found about 10 miles from his father’s home in Vallecito in 2013. The boy had traveled to be with his father for a court-ordered visit the previous Thanksgiving. Hikers found his skull a mile and a half away in November 2015. Investigators say the skull showed signs of blunt force trauma.

Mark Redwine and Elaine Hall, the boy’s mother, had gone through a contentious divorce and custody battle. Mark Redwine has denied any involvement in Dylan’s death.

Redwine is being held on $1 million cash-only bond and is awaiting extradition to Colorado.
