Cops Tear Dylan Redwine's Father's House Apart Looking for Evidence of Teen's Murder

This Just In 25

Dylan RedwineThe family of Dylan Redwine has been in a holding pattern since their missing 13-year-old son was found, dead, not far from his father's house in June. But suddenly cops descended on the house of Dylan's dad, Mark Redwine, this week. They tore the place apart. How do we know?

Mark Redwine. He's telling the press everything. Every. Dirty. Detail.

According to Mark himself, the cops removed sections of carpet and wood flooring in his house, the last place Dylan was seen alive last November, when he was visiting his father (Mark and Dylan's mother, Elaine Redwine, are separated and shared custody of their 13-year-old). 

They didn't stop there. Mark told a Colorado news station that the police took a fireplace poker, clothing, and a cellphone from his home. They also dug a hole in his yard, underneath an outdoor staircase. 

What were they looking for?

Isn't it obvious?

Mark Redwine's house is the scene of the crime. They're looking for evidence.

Which leads us to the real question: why is Mark telling everyone? And in such detail?

Isn't he afraid? The cops haven't officially named him as a suspect in his child's murder, but they are SEARCHING HIS HOUSE.

It's not looking good for dad. And his big mouth is a strange response. Don't lawyers usually tell you to shut up at this point? Doesn't he have one?

Perhaps Mark Redwine thinks the best defense is a good offense? Word got out pretty darn quickly that there were cops at his house, thanks to the Justice for Dylan Redwine Facebook page, which had this snarky gem up on yesterday:

I know that many of you in the Community saw Law Enforcement at Mark's house this afternoon. Most definitely 10 SUV's are noticeable and I know there are a lot of questions. I just wanted to confirm this information is true. But that's about all I can tell you for now. Justice is coming, I can promise you that. I would also like to add that I hope Mark is enjoying this beautiful summer evening, because I am. Love and Light

He had to know people were wondering what was going on.

And he has to know people have been wondering if he had something to do with his son's murder (yes, cops say it was a murder). His ex-wife has been intimating in the press that Dylan's dad is a bad, bad dude -- it's why she divorced him. 

If he just wanted to comfort the neighbors about the hubbub, he did a poor job. No one wants to hear that the cops were at the house down the street cutting out bits of carpet in case someone was murdered on it.

As for casting suspicion off of himself, Mark Redwine's openness could be seen as the act of a guy who has absolutely nothing to hide. But it's so odd, so out of the ordinary, that it may well do the opposite for most people.

Whatever comes of it, let's hope the cops can find the answer to this tragedy. Dylan Redwine deserves justice.

What do you think of Mark Redwine spilling the beans ... on himself?

I didn't think he told on himself at all

Lori Ray

Sounds obviously odd.......I hope they do get justice for the boy...still waiting for justice for mine

Gin Robertson

I hope the get justice for the boy but at the same time I hope they don't crucify wrong person.

I don't think so either. In fact, if he was such a terrible dude, that mother would have done whatever she could in her power to convince a judge that her son should not be around him! Instead, the "horrible" man has 50/50 custody!

Sandra Luff Hart

I seen this story on the Dr.Phil show before he was found.  Father is guilty he kept saying he was gonna take a lie detctor test and kept changing his mind.  He never took it.

Dawn Fuchs

I find it odd that a father would go to the media immediately after the search of his home when looking for clues to his sons death....he doesn't ask the media to help find the killer, he doesn't talk about how much he misses his son, all he talks about is the "gory" details of how his carpet was cut up, the floors cut up....what is wrong with this man?

Michele Crow

He was on the Dr Phil show and refused to take a lie detector test, LIKE THAT WASN'T SUSPECT ENOUGH


i have to agree with sandra, i saw the show too, and he came up with some lame ass excuses as to why he couldn't take the test, oh he didn't sleep, he was to anxious, blah blah blah, the man obviously has something to hide, which is why i think hes being so upfront about the police being there in the first place, like the writer said, best defense is a good offense, he knows damn well they probably wont find anything there because he probably didn't kill his son there, which is why hes being so open about it...i hope he gets what he deserves in the end..

Sounds like hes got narcissistic tendencies. Psychopaths enjoy the spot light. His.acting glib regarding this is very, very strange. If it were my , I would let them do whatever to rule me out. Fact remains, police more often than not are decent investigators, if they didnt have something on him, they wouldnt be searching this hard. There is enough probable cause to tear everything up to find what they need. This guy is just making it easier for them to bring this babies murderer to justice.

Theresa Bail

He did do it. He IS a bad "dude"!!! Trust me!! My family KNOWS all too well from being victims of this monster in the past! Had I not intervened years ago, my son would have been another tragedy on a blog site. DO NOT LET HIM FOOL YOU!!! Don't believe me??!! Do yourself a favor... Travel down to Adams County Court House and pull our files. Theresa Bail vs. Mark Redwine. There are 3 seperate cases. Yes, one I lost because I punched him, but the rest of the info ANYONE needs lies within those documents. I want to see this man burn in hell! I want him to pay for the pain and suffering he has put many through because I know my kids weren't the first, and his isn't the last. BURN IN HELL REDWINE!!!!
