Bodycam footage released by police in Bellingham, Washington shows Mark Redwine claiming to have no idea why authorities in Colorado would want to have him arrested as officers took him into custody last weekend for the murder of his 13-year-old son Dylan.
The 55-year old Redwine had been a potential suspect in his son’s death since the boy’s disappearance in late 2012, but it wasn’t until a LaPlata County grand jury reviewed all the evidence again that an indictment was issued, and authorities went looking for him.
Redwine has been working as a long-haul trucker, and the company he worked for coordinated with police in using GPS to pinpoint his location last weekend in Washington. The U.S. Marshal’s Service helped the effort by ‘pinging’ Redwine’s cell phone to verify that he and his truck were in the same location. Bellingham police had been advised that Redwine might have a gun, so they surrounded his truck guns drawn, ordered him to the ground, and handcuffed him.
The camera footage shows Redwine asking for an explanation as to why he was being arrested. When an officer advised him he was wanted in Colorado on 2nd-degree murder charges, he said he had “no idea what that’s about.”
Redwine remains in custody in Washington on a $1 million cash-only bond awaiting an extradition hearing that will return him to Colorado to stand trial.
