Sad! Father Kills His 13-Year-Old Son After The Boy Mocked Photos Of Him Eating Feces From a Diaper He Was Wearing

A father was allegedly led to kill his 13-year-old son after the boy found ‘compromising’ photos of him in diapers and eating feces.

Dylan Redwine went missing in November 2012 while on a court-ordered visit with his father, Mark, in Colorado.

The child’s remains were found seven months later scattered in southwestern Colorado mountains by wild animals.

Prosecutors now say that Redwine may have killed Dylan after he was confronted about the ‘disturbing’ pictures.

Redwine was arrested on Saturday and indicted by a grand jury with charges of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death after the four-and-a-half-year investigation.

Redwine has constantly denied playing a role in his son’s death and at one point appeared on Dr Phil to blame his ex-wife for the child’s death.


Cory Redwine, Dylan’s older brother, revealed that he had seen the photos.

‘I have seen the photos. It shows him wearing women’s clothes and makeup and a diaper and then eating his feces from the diaper. It was disgusting. We couldn’t believe it,’ he told ABC7.

Dylan’s mother, Elaine Hall, added that she believes her son confronted her ex-husband about the photos and was murdered for it.

‘He may have said something that just didn’t set well with Mark and Mark reacted in a very violent way…obviously. Dylan is no longer here,’ Hall said on a February 2015 podcast.

Redwine is being held in Bellingham, Washington, on a $1million bond and is facing extradition to Colorado, the Durango Herald reported.


However, the issue of whether he will fight extradition will be decided at a later date after confusion over whether Redwine was offered his right to waive the hearing.

On Monday, the court was given an outline of the charges against him and bail was set.

In the grand jury indictment, investigators said blood was found in multiple locations in Redwine’s living room, including his couch.

Cadaver dogs even found the scent of a dead body in various locations in the home and on the clothes Redwine wore the night Dylan disappeared, the indictment says.

In 2014, the cadaver dog also picked up the scent of a body in the bed of Redwine’s pickup truck, according to the indictment.


Authorities also said Redwine had mentioned how investigators would have to find his son’s skull before they determined how the teen died.

Dylan lived north of Colorado Springs with his mother but went to his father’s home near Vallecito Reservoir northeast of Durango for a court-ordered visit in November 2012.

His dad said he returned home from doing errands to find his son had gone. The two parents subsequently blamed each other for their son’s disappearance.

But in June 2013, Dylan’s partial remains were found on Middle Mountain.

Hikers found his skull 1.5miles away in November 2015, according to 9News.


Investigators said Dylan’s skull was found in difficult terrain that was easily accessible by a road that Redwine was very familiar with.

The skull had injuries consistent with blunt force trauma and two small markings that appeared to be tool marks from a knife, the indictment alleges.

Months after the first remains were found in 2013, Hall said she believed her ex-husband killed Dylan.


‘I always have from day one, when he was missing,’ she told The Pine River Times at the time.

According to the indictment, Dylan had not been getting along with his father prior to his disappearance as he watched his two parents in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle.

Hall told authorities that her ex-husband told her he would ‘kill the kids before he let her have them’, the indictment alleges.

On Wednesday, police released body camera footage of Redwine being arrested.

Police Hunt For Thieves Who Killed a Fourth Year Student During a Bar Raid In Bungoma

Police are looking for a gang that killed a fourth-year student when it attacked a pub in Bungoma County on Wednesday night.

You Can Run But you Can’t Hide: Sheila Wanjiku Charged With Murder

A US based Kenyan businesswoman who shot her husband dead three years ago has been found guilty of murder by a High Court judge.

Sheila Wanjiku Kibinge who was charged with murdering Leonard Kibinge Kiruri on April 15 2014 at Gitaru Village in Kikuyu on the outskirts of Nairobi city was found guilty of pre-meditated murder by Justice Jessie Lesiit.

“The murder weapon was not recovered and produced in court….failure to do so was however not fatal to the prosecution’s case as the police were not at the scene during the incident and the accused had time to dispose of the weapon,” the judge said in line with the proof that she was guilty.
Wanjiku had claimed that she and her husband had been kidnapped on that fateful night and it was the kidnappers who killed her husband.

Wanjiku in her testimony had testified that she walked away when she heard a blast and then their car crashed into a fence. She said she did not check on her husband who was the one driving the car before it crashed, a fact which the the judge condemned .
“The accused by-passed Kikuyu Police Station and other nearer stations to go report the alleged kidnapping incident at Central Police Station… this was just an attempt at buying time so as to delay the process of investigations that she knew would follow,” Justice Lesiit said.
Witness testimonies also show that Wanjiku had had several change of clothes from the time of the incident to the time of reporting to Central Police Station.

Witnesses told the court that Wanjiku had appeared calm and collected after the incident and that she did not seem to have been shaken by it.
Wanjiku claimed that she had come to Kenya to process Visa for her husband so that they could relocate to the US.

Wanjiku had told the court that she had come to Kenya through Uganda but the court established that there was no point of entry stamp on her passport as required by law.
She had also claimed to have traveled from Uganda to Kenya using Mash bus. She however did not produce bus ticket to back up that claim.

According to a taxi driver who drove her from Kikuyu to Central Police Station in the CBD after the incident, the accused appeared shaken and disturbed and under the buibui she was wearing heard a clicking sound which terrified him so much that after dropping the accused at Central Police Station, he proceeded straight to Kikuyu Police Station where he reported carrying a suspicious person who may have had a bomb.

“The accused explained that the clicking sound heard was the buckle of her belt as she counted coins to pay him,” the judge said.

Justice Lesiit further said Sheila’s explanation that she was sleeping when the vehicle veered off the road does not explain her indifference to the deceased.

“I also considered the evidence of two witnesses who lived near the fence the deceased crashed into,” the judge said, adding that the witnesses said they heard three loud blasts, “and there is no way the accused can feign ignorance that three gunshots were fired since she was seated right next to her husband at the time.”

The judge also said she considered the evidence of the prosecution witness who was the first to see Sheila after she left the vehicle who said she was calm and collected.

“That is someone who was not affected by what had just happened… I find that the accused conduct after the shooting incident was the conduct of someone with a guilty mind,” the judge said.

Her defense requested for time to mitigate.
