Yesterday, Dr. Phil spent the last 15 minutes of his show talking with Elaine Redwine, mother of Dylan, 14, who missing on November 9, 2012.
Dylan’s parents were divorced and Dylan flew in to spent some time with his dad. On the day after his arrival, Mark, Dylan’s father said his son wouldn’t get up in the morning, so he went to run errands without him. When he came back, Dylan was missing.
Dylan’s remains were found in June 2013 on a mountain side 10 miles drive from Mark Redwine’s house, and according to reports only 2% of his remains were actually found.
Dr. Phil had Mark and Elaine Redwine on before, and I have seen both parents in multiple interviews. The last time Mark was on Dr. Phil he agreed to take a polygraph and then admitted to heavy drinking the night before the test, which if I remember right disqualified him for the test. And now, this time, Dr. Phil offered for him to take a lie detector again, and he refused. This does not concern me at all. Mark is not the type of guy who functions well under pressure. Furthermore, he talks about a polygraph he took prior to this one, and I can’t help but wonder if it came out inconclusive, and hence why Mark has fears. I would have fears too if I took a polygraph and it couldn’t tell if I was truthful when I was. I absolutely wouldn’t take another one. Why on earth would anyone take that risk on something that isn’t even scientific?
I do not see any hotspots in Mark’s behavior that indicate to me that he is being deceptive about his son’s disappearance in this interview. The police have been to Mark Redwine’s house and Elaine’s latest request (for her to go to his house with the sheriff) wouldn’t serve any other purpose but to try to pin the crime on Mark again. I think he was wise to refuse her request. The police have already executed a search warrant for Mark’s house. It isn’t like she would get “new” information to solve the crime. The Sheriff already did that.
I do see Dylan’s mom, Elaine, bent on a mission to convince people that Mark is the murderer rather than to actually find the truth. This concerns me. In Elaine Redwine’s initial interviews, she was inconsistent, and flagged me, though I specifically stated it doesn’t mean that she was involved. I cannot say what the inconsistencies mean. I can just say she was inconsistent. Mark hasn’t flagged me as deceptive. I had a couple of questions I wanted to ask him from previous interviews, but overall, nothing jumps out at me.
This case is a true mystery. I’d like to be able to sit down and talk to both parents to get to the heart of this story, personally.
