What Happened to Dylan Redwine
It is based upon, principally, the words of Mark Redwine. After these words, I considered Elaine Redwine's words, some of the details of the case, and the appearance of Mark Redwine on the Dr. Phil Show. I have also taken Behavioral Analysis into consideration into this opinion.
What Statement Analysis has concluded is this:
Dylan Redwine is known by Mark Redwine to be deceased, and that Mark Redwine is deceptively withholding information on what happened to Dylan. Dylan did not go missing, but met his fate at the hands of his father, who has since hidden Dylan's remains.
Mark Redwine on the Dr. Phil Show
Mark Redwine's eyes lit up whenever Elaine Redwine's pain became evident. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and the attention, but his particular delight was seeing Elaine on the verge of coming apart at the seams. Her visibly evident pain brought Mark Redwine satisfaction; the satisfaction he sought, I believe, when he silenced Dylan and sought to inflict unceasing pain upon Elaine, for the rest of her life.
He enjoyed himself because he enjoyed his success.
He is a controller, who needs to pummel others, and the court that ordered Dylan to visit him, sentenced Dylan to his death unawares.
The ego of a liar.
Elaine pointed out that Mark did not know how to construct lies about Dylan. He could not even invent a proper television channel for the 13 year old boy which later Mark Redwine used to feign good parenting while portraying Elaine in the negative.
This was not a "he said; she said" case like some media outlets may like to portray. This was a mother pleading for her child, allowing the killer to bask in his moment of satisfaction, all in the hope of a single slip of the tongue which would allow the mother to bring her baby angel home for proper burial.
This is the word Elaine used to describe Dylan to me. He is now her "angel", as she has come to accept that Mark Redwine took Dylan from her, and she needs to find him, to bury her son, and grieve her loss.
Elaine's focus was Dylan.
Dr. Phil's focus was on Dylan, and on some of the drama that unfolded. He did well, at times, by appealing to the ego of Mark Redwine.
Mark's focus was Elaine. He honed his skills of abuse over many years, and has hurt many others in life, but it was his almost uncontrollable giddiness over hurting Elaine that confirmed to him, that he, in his twisted logic of control and harm, did the 'right thing' in silencing Dylan's defense of his mother.
Mark Redwine got the ultimate revenge on Elaine, hurting her in the one spot she could never heal from: by taking her youngest child from her.
Mark Redwine holds the world in contempt. There's little doubt that he will, eventually, blame Dylan for what happened, after he is done blaming Elaine. Perhaps he will blame the judge who mandated Dylan's ill-fated visit.
Dylan spoke up.
This is what I believe happened.
Dylan spoke up for his mom.
Dylan did not want to be with his father, announcing his arrival with a symbolic sad face on a text message to his mother.
Acutely narcissistic, Mark Redwine knew his son did not want to be with him, but wanted to be at home with his mother, and if he could not be with his mother, he would want to see his friends.
I believe that in that trip to McDonalds, the escalation from Mark Redwine increased exponentially as he saw that Dylan loved his mother, and reached its zenith at the home where, I believe, Mark Redwine first verbally attacked Dylan's mother, and when Dylan spoke up for his mother, the boy's bravery and character was more than Mark Redwine could bear and his trademark anger broke loose upon the small boy, with his wrath unsatisified until he could not longer 'wake' Dylan up; that is, resussictate Dylan. This is the verbal description of Mark Redwine in which his mind went as he sought for words to deceive.
Mark Redwine is a sociopath who will be viewed much like Scott Peterson: having gone on national television, feigning care, while harboring the secret of murder.
How many viewers saw him speak, and barely contain the flash of joy in his eyes, when he saw the pain he inflicted upon Elaine?
Dr. Phil's manipulation of Mark Redwine's ego is to be commended. He told Redwine that he would provide for him the ultimate opportunity to clear his name via the polygraph test, taking the liar in his own pride.
Remember: liars are those who fabricate reality. Mark Redwine is right up there with Billie Jean Dunn and Justin DiPietro.
All three are liars who killed and all three were baited into taking polygraphs, knowing they would fail. All knew that once they take the polygraph, they were going to fail, but they have, all three, grown so used to being successful in their lies that they could not cancel and get out of the test. Even Shawn Adkins had the presence of mind to avoid the polygraph. * (This is the basis for my belief that had Shawn Adkins been arrested, he would have revealed the location of Hailey Dunn's body. He is not a confident liar, did not want to take the polygraph, and had to be talked into it by Billie Dunn. Later, Shawn Adkins' family paid for him to take a private polygraph, believing that the police had, as Adkins claimed, "set him up." They paid for it and he took it, and promptly failed it just as he did the police administered polygraph.)*
Mark Redwine's pride built up in him, over all the years of successful lying, betrayed him, and caused him to "prove" to the challenge of Dr. Phil's words, that he could pass the test.
For Mark Redwine, Billie Dunn and Justin DiPietro, the polygraph itself, was the ends, and not the means.
For police, the polygraph is a means of which they use to eliminate the innocent, allowing them to move on in the investigation and find the missing child. For the three killers above, it was not about passing the polygraph to find their children, it was about "beating" the polygraph.
Did you notice that all three share something else in common about the polygraph?
All three disparaged the administration of it.
Billie Dunn, in her brutal attack on the English language said "they had me faithful in that lie detector" ; which translates into blaming the police for removing her faith in the polygraph.
Justin DiPietro blamed police for not "giving" him the results. He did not "pass" the polygraph, instead, he "smoked" it.
Mark Redwine attempted to disparage the credentials of the polygraph administrator.
All three disparaged the polygraph that they sought to "beat" rather than pass, including Dunn showing up stoned to take it.
All three share in common deep and abiding hatred of innocence.
All three despise the judicial innocence of youth.
All three were spoke out, eventually, about the "missing" child, and all three were taken in their own words.
Statement Analysis got to the truth of Baby Ayla, when DiPietro was finally goaded into speaking out, just as Mark Redwine, another "emotionally incapable" father, did finally speak out, and when he did, we knew.
I wish we didn't.
Before that, we had hope that Dylan was a missing 13 year old who would be fine.
I knew that when Crime Wire attempted to make contact with Elaine, that she would have to hear the results of the analysis of Mark's initial media interview.
She wishes she didn't.
Mark Redwine has been publicly humiliated before a national audience on a TV show seen by millions. The next move is his.
Will a Joe Tacopina step forward, smelling the free publicity, and squash the case police are building against Mark Redwine, the way he did in the case against Deboarah Bradley in the Baby Lisa case? I believe that police were thisclose to Bradley confessing and allowing Lisa burial when Tacopina swooped in with his Rolex watch and $700 per hour price tag. The DA folded up tent and went home. The police, once bravado in their press conferences, packed up and went home. The FBI, tail between its legs, actually shared evidence with Joe Tacopina BEFORE any charges against Bradley were filed. Re-run the video of Tacopina making that announcement and tell me if you can't see his chest swelling with pride knowing the FBI begged him to cut a deal, but he said, "no, thanks, boys, we're moving on..." and all was well with Bradley and Irwin.
Only Baby Lisa was left to rot in the river, without a Christian burial.
Let us hope it is not the case with Dylan Redwine.
Elaine has suffered enough. In fact, we can safely say that the long years married to Mark Redwine were suffering enough for a lifetime. Mark Redwine has won. He has inflicted pain which will never cease, as Elaine can look at herself in the mirror, month by month, and see year by year age progression, as she ages a year for every month Dylan is "out there", unburied.
His glee was barely contained when he attempted to portray Elaine as a mastermind kidnapper, dopey enough to send Dylan on a plane, only to tag along and take him. At least Dr. Phil did not allow that to pass without some biting sarcasm. I appreciated Dr. Phil's rebuttal to that.
Dr. Phil got Mark Redwine backed into a corner, by exploiting the abuser's own ego. This was a good technique, as pointed out by Kaaryn Gough. The follow up will be interesting, too, but what matters most now is Justice for Dylan.
Justice for Dylan.
Without forensics to allow Dylan to be heard, we will have to rely upon Mark Redwine's version of what happened.
For some, this is injustice.
Not so, for us.
Statement Analysis gets to the truth and whatever version Mark Redwine ultimately makes, we will know the truth from deception. We will use his words, and see them in context, and carefully apply the principles of analysis, and we will know.
We will know.
I believe that Dylan died because he refused to let Mark Redwine trample his mother. This is my belief.
I hold out that Dylan was noble, even as a young man should be.
Like the story of the boy who came into Sunday School, disheveled from a fight, Dylan stands tall. The boy came into class and the teacher asked him what had happened. The boy explained that he got into a fight because another boy had insulted his mother. The Sunday School teacher rewarded the boy for his desire to stand up for his mother and gave him a coin and told him that if he gets into a fight to uphold his mother or sister's honor, he will give him another coin, each and every time he defends one of them. When the board heard of this, they dismissed the Sunday School teacher.
The teacher's name?
I hold that Dylan loved his mother, and did not want to visit his father, but would not join an evil alliance and agree with Mark against his mom.
I believe that Dylan Redwine died because he loved his mother, and it was this love that Mark Redwine could not abide.
Let us continue to pray for Justice for Dylan Redwine and push prosecutors to have courage and face down Dylan's killer. Sure, Mark Redwine will eventually tell us that he did not intend to harm Dylan, that it was an accident in a moment's anger, but his own words will betray him. We will know.
We will know.
Justice for Dylan Redwine.
