Mark Redwine back in Colorado: Police book murder suspect into La Plata County jail

Posted at 5:24 PM, Aug 14, 2017

LA PLATA COUNTY — After waiving his extradition last week, Mark Redwine, who is accused of killing his son in La Plata County, is back in Colorado — this time in handcuffs. 

Police say he was booked into La Plata County Jail just before 5 p.m. Monday after he was extradited from Whatcom County, Washington. 

Redwine was arrested in Bellingham, Washington on July 22 in connection to 2012 death of his 13-year-old son, Dylan.

Dylan was on a court-ordered visit with his dad, near Durango, during Thanksgiving week when he disappeared. Some of the boy's remains were found in June 2013, about 10 miles from his father's home north of Vallecito Lake.

In August 2015, the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner's Office announced that Dylan's manner of death had been updated to "homicide" and Mark Redwine was officially the person of interest.

Mark Redwine was charged with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
