Investigators in southwestern Colorado on Wednesday searched the home of Mark Redwine for the first time since his son Dylan’s remains were found in June, KOB-TV reported.
It was the third search of the elder Redwine’s home near Vallecitos, Colo., the first one coming right after the boy was reported missing following his court-ordered visit to his father for the Thanksgiving holiday and the second 10 days after his disappearance, Eyewitness News 4 said.
Television station KUSA talked to Mark Redwine on Wednesday, and he told them deputies took a fireplace poker, clothing and a cell phone, KOB-TV said. Redwine also said deputies removed sections of carpet and wood floors and dug a hole in his yard underneath an outdoor staircase.
Although Dylan Redwine’s death has been called a homicide, Mark Redwine has never been publicly identified as a suspect.
The boy’s remains were found along a mountain road about 12 miles from his father’s house, according to KOB-TV.
