COLORADO SPRINGS – The mother of Dylan Redwine told a magistrate judge on Wednesday she fears her ex-husband might try to harm her and asked for a permanent civil protection order placed against him.
After four hours of testimony, the court denied her request.
Back in May, Elaine Redwine filed for a temporary protection order against Mark Redwine after he was hospitalized in Denver. Police officers discovered Mark Redwine on a random street in Denver standing outside his vehicle. Inside his vehicle, the officers found several guns registered to Mark Redwine.
Court documents show Elaine Redwine said the following to a judge, "My ex-husband was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation based on his paranoia of his involvement in the death of our son Dylan Redwine".
Elaine Redwine went on to say in the documents, "[Mark] stressed to the Denver cops how much he hated me and ranted about that."
On Wednesday, Elaine Redwine's attorney James Chalat asked the court to relinquish Mark Redwine's guns, claiming they're a threat to Elaine.
From the very beginning, Elaine Redwine believed Mark Redwine had something to do with the disappearance of their son, Dylan.
Dylan was last seen at his father's home in Vallecito in November 2012. Vallecito is about 30 miles east of Durango.
Elaine and Mark had divorced years prior. Dylan lived with his mother near Colorado Springs but went to Vallecito to spend Thanksgiving with his father. Shortly after Dylan arrived in La Plata County, he was never seen again.
Investigators discovered only a few of Dylan's remains on Middle Mountain. To this day, the La Plata County Sheriff's Department believes he was murdered.
Wednesday's ruling also allows Mark Redwine to keep his guns.
