Dylan Redwine disappeared seven years ago Tuesday in La Plata County, an event that prompted a yearslong investigation that led to the arrest of the boy’s father on suspicion of murder.

Dylan’s disappearance Nov. 19, 2012, and subsequent homicide investigation sparked national attention. The boy, 13, was last seen with his father, Mark Redwine, on surveillance footage at the Durango-La Plata County Airport and at Walmart in Durango.

“It’s kind of surreal,” said Elaine Hatfield-Hall, Dylan’s mother, in an interview Tuesday with The Durango Herald. “Sometimes, it doesn’t feel like it happened.”

Dylan’s last known whereabouts were at his father’s home, 2343 County Road 500, just north of Vallecito Reservoir. His last phone activity or communication was at 9:37 p.m. Nov. 18, 2012, when he sent text messages to a friend about plans to meet up.

Dylan’s friend sent a text at 6:46 the next morning asking, “where are you,” and received no response.

Investigators found the boy’s partial remains in June 2013 about 8 miles up Middle Mountain Road. Hikers found the boy’s skull in November 2015 about 1½ miles up Middle Mountain Road from where the rest of his remains were found.

Law enforcement arrested Mark Redwine, now 58, in July 2017 in Washington state and accused him of second-degree murder and child abuse. He has been incarcerated ever since at the La Plata County Jail.

Redwine’s trial date has been postponed at least three times in the past year. He is currently scheduled for a four-week trial in April 2020.

HERE WE GO.


Opening remarks are expected to begin at 1:30 p.m., once a jury has been seated. Jury selection started June 14, court records show. The trial is expected to last 4-5 weeks. Mark Redwine faces the potential of up to 48 years in prison if convicted of second-degree murder, the top charge against him. He is also charged with child abuse resulting in death. He has pleaded not guilty to both counts.

I am hoping and praying that this jury isn't afraid to administer JUSTICE for Dylan and his loved ones!

What happened to Dylan Redwine? Prosecution and defense offer 2 stories in father's murder trial​

During opening statements, Prosecutor Fred Johnson emphasized the fact that Dylan Redwine’s father was the last person to see him alive.

Johnson pointed to evidence that showed the presence of blood in Mark Redwine’s living room as well as a cadaver dog indicating the possibility that there had been a body in the back of his truck. He said that the father and son had a fraught relationship after the boy discovered incriminating photos and confronted him about it.


The defense also mentioned this fraught relationship during their opening statements, saying that this is reason to suspect that Dylan Redwine had died after wandering away from his father’s house alone the morning of Nov. 19, 2012. His last text message was to a friend, saying they would meet up at 6:30 a.m. after he was told he had to spend the night at his father's house.

“This one essential question informs the entirely of this case … would Dylan have left his father’s house on the morning of Nov. 19, 2012 while his dad was at work?” Public Defender John Moran said.

Moran said the answer was yes, and that the evidence indicates that Dylan Redwine’s body had been damaged by animals and there was no evidence Mark Redwine was responsible for what had happened.

So how did he die? Maybe his remains were damaged by animals, but something happened before. Something very bad.
