Dylan Redwine homicide: Is just-hospitalized dad Mark Redwine being stalked by haters?
In November 2012, thirteen-year-old Dylan Redwine disappeared near the southwestern Colorado home of his dad, Mark Redwine. His remains were found in June 2013, with La Plata County investigators launching a homicide investigation -- and while Mark has never been officially named as a suspect, he's been under relentless pressure from the mainstream press and (especially) social media.

The latest twist: Mark was hospitalized early Saturday morning after bizarre behavior he says was motivated by concern that he was being "stalked" by "haters."
The basics about the case, as we've 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 a 2013 episode.
Also piling on Mark has been the Calling Mark Redwine Facebook page, which has kept up a steady attack on its subject for well over a year. Last August, for instance, it was among the first places to note that authorities were conducting a search of Mark's home.
