Dylan Redwine investigation: Latest search of dad's house leads to more speculation
For the better part of a year, we've been covering the sad story of Dylan Redwine, a thirteen year old whose remains were found in June, many months after he went missing.

Since then, much attention has focused on Mark Redwine, Dylan's dad, who the teen had been visiting -- and while he's never officially been named a person of interest in the case, the latest search of his home yesterday has spurred a new round of speculation. See photos, videos and details below.
The basics about the case, as we've reported them: Dylan's mother, Elaine, divorced Mark in 2007; Dylan moved with his mom from Southwestern Colorado to Colorado Springs in 2011. On November 18, however, Dylan traveled to the community of Vallecito, not far from Durango, to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with his dad.
The next day, Mark told representatives of the La Plata Sheriff's Office that he left home around 7:30 a.m. to run some errands, and upon his return four hours later, Dylan was gone. And he remained missing until his remains were discovered in a search of Middle Mountain, not far from Vallecito Lake, in late June.
In the interim, Elaine raised questions about Mark, sharing with ABC News her suspicion that her ex-husband may have tried to "remove Dylan from the situation. You know, like, 'If I can't have him, nobody will.'
"I was married to Mark for a lot of years, and I know the way he reacts to things," she went on. "If Dylan maybe did or said something that wasn't what Mark wanted to hear, I'm just afraid of how Mark would have reacted."
Responding to these implications, Mark told 7News that Elaine was making the situation "more than it needs to be" before adding that he wanted to avoid lashing out at her.
The public bickering continued on a national stage. Here's Elaine and Mark on an episode of Dr. Phil from earlier this year.
Also piling on Mark has been the Calling Mark Redwine Facebook page, whose profile photo features Dylan's dad with a Pinocchio-like nose. And yesterday, a post there featured some intriguing news.
