Person of Interest Named in Dylan Redwine’s Death

August 19, 2015

The La Plata County Sheriff's Office is releasing more information in the case of Dylan Redwine, the Monument 13-year-old who disappeared in southwestern Colorado in 2012.  His remains were found less than a year later.

Earlier this summer, the sheriff's office said they had a person of interest.  Investigators are now naming that person as Mark Redwine, Dylan's father.  The county coroner has also amended Dylan's death certificate to reflect "homicide" as the cause of death, as opposed to "undetermined."

The La Plata County Sheriff's Office says the decision to consider Mark Redwine a person of interest came after evidence collection, inconsistent statements, and his behavior.  Dylan's mother, son, and current husband have all been ruled out as suspects.

Investigators are still seeking information in the case, and encourage anyone who might have information to call the hotline at 970-382-7511.
