DENVER – 9Wants to Know has learned the father of Dylan Redwine has been released from Denver Health Medical Center after a bizarre early morning interaction with police led to a psychological evaluation.
Mark Redwine of Bayfield, Colorado, called 9Wants to Know investigator Melissa Blasius around 2:30 a.m. Saturday from a street corner in Denver. He said he thought police had him surrounded at a central Denver intersection.
Denver police tell 9Wants to Know that they were actually responding to a 911 call about someone acting irrationally who was possibly armed. After he was picked up, no weapon was found on Redwine. However, Redwine tells 9Wants to Know he had two guns in his truck nearby. He says he does not believe he is a danger to himself or others.
After his release from the hospital, Redwine told 9Wants to Know he was experiencing some paranoia at the time of the police incident. He attributes his state to a combination of feeling "stalked" by "haters", "monitored" by police, and "self-medicating".
Mark Redwine's son Dylan was visiting his father in Bayfield for Thanksgiving when he went missing on Nov. 19, 2012. The disappearance prompted a state-wide search for the boy. Some of Dylan's remains were found in June 2013, not far from his father's home. No one had ever been named as a suspect in his disappearance and death.
The La Plata County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating Dylan Redwine's death as a homicide case, has been notified about Saturday's situation.
