DENVER (CBS4) – What happened to Dylan Redwine? That question was the focus of the Dr. Phil Show Wednesday as he interviewed the deceased teen’s parents, Elaine and Mark Redwine, and Dylan’s brother Cory. Neither Elaine nor Cory have talked to Mark since they received the devastating news about Dylan.
“He murdered his son,” said Elaine when referring to Mark.READ MORE: Denver Weather: Rare Consecutive 100 Degree Days In Denver
The 14-year-old boy disappeared in November 2012 from his father’s home near Durango.
Dylan, 14, had been missing since Nov. 19, 2012, a day after arriving at his father’s Vallecito home for a court-ordered visit during Thanksgiving break. The boy was living with his mother and brother, Cory, in the Colorado Springs area.
His father, Mark Redwine, says he last saw Dylan asleep when he left home early to do some errands. He reported the boy missing that afternoon. His partial remains were discovered in June 2013 during a search of Middle Mountain Road.
Elaine and Cory responded to Dr. Phil’s questions about why they believe only partial remains were found.
“I believe that he was moved,” said Elaine.
“I think he went up and recollected and tried to get rid of as much evidence as he could,” said Cory.
Middle Mountain is located north and within sight of Vallecito Lake, near Dylan’s father’s house. The search area ranged from 8,000 to 11,000 feet altitude and consists of deep canyons and dense forest.
Mark joined the Dr. Phil Show on the phone where he once again denied having anything to do with the disappearance and/or death of his son.
Dr. Phil asked Mark how he felt when he learned how close Dylan’s remains were found so close to home.READ MORE: Loveland Ski Area Gets Approval For 2 New Runs, Parking Expansion In Beginner Area
“It was a shock to me. I certainly didn’t anticipate that his remains were even going to be found anywhere. I know that there was a long time that the search that was being conducted was being conducted around the area of the lake,” said Mark.
When asked why he thought only partial remains were found, Mark replied, “That’s a good question. That’s a question that’s been nagging me since I was sat down and was told my son was now deceased.”
Elaine asked Mark if he would be willing to go with La Plata County Sheriff’s investigators with her to walk through his house to recreate the scene that occurred the night that Dylan disappeared, “That would be very helpful in the investigation.”
Mark replied, “We’ve had every opportunity to get those things done before now and at this point I just don’t see the value in doing it. To be honest with you, I refuse to do that.
“I don’t owe the nation an explanation as to what I’m doing. Dylan is my son!”
“You owe Dylan that explanation!” said Cory.
“I’ve done everything that I know how to do as a parent to try to be there for him and try to do the right thing. To tell me that I’ve done absolutely nothing is ludicrous,” said Mark.
“Where were you Nov. 18? When he went missing? Where were you? Where have you been this whole time?” asked Elaine.
The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office released a statement regarding the investigation into Dylan Redwine’s death: “This is an active investigation and we will not make any further comments, except that we will continue our investigation efforts until there is a resolution for Dylan.”
Elaine, Cory and Mark appeared on Dr. Phil before Dylan’s remains were found, in a desperate attempt to try to find the boy. The show became less about Dylan and more about a venue for his parents to express their disdain for one another.MORE NEWS: Bench At Louisville Cemetery Dedicated To Families Who Suffered Pregnancy Loss
“I will risk my own life before I ever stop fighting for justice for Dylan,” said Elaine.
