The tragic disappearance of a young boy became a possible murder mystery this week following an announcement by law enforcement officials in Colorado.

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday that the death of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine was no accident.

Redwine went missing Nov. 19, 2012, shortly after his arrival in Bayfield, Colorado, for a Thanksgiving visit with his father. His remains waited in silence for seven months on the side of a mountain near his father’s home until searchers, spurred on by the spring thaw, found him.

More than two years have passed since the discovery. Along the way, his parents, Mark Redwine and Elaine Hall, who are divorced, have played out a family drama of anger and betrayal that led to Hall filing a wrongful death lawsuit against her ex-husband in June.

In July, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office announced they had determined a person of interest in the case. Investigators declined to name the person but that didn’t stop the ongoing trial of Mark Redwine in social media and online. Part of Wednesday’s announcement included naming Mark Redwine as that person of interest. Redwine responded by filing a countersuit to his wife’s claim.

Elaine Hall and other family members have been cleared of any involvement in Dylan’s death. While Mark Redwine is a person of interest in the case, no suspect has been named, and so the question remains, who killed Dylan Redwine?

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who might have information that might help in the investigation to call their hotline: 970-382-7511.

Ed. note: Dylan Redwine was the cousin of LaVerkin resident Jason Howard.
