Coroner: Cause Of Dylan Redwine's Death May Never Be Determined


Investigators are struggling to determine a cause of death for Monument teen Dylan Redwine, who went missing in November of last year.

Bones found during a five-day search late last month of Middle Mountain Road, which is near Durango in La Plata County, were confirmed to be 13-year-old Dylan's.

Dylan went missing just before Thanksgiving while on a court-ordered visit to see his father, who lives outside Durango near Vallecito Lake. According to his father, Mark Redwine, Dylan was still home the morning of November 19, when Mark went to run some errands. He was gone when Mark returned four hours later.

According to La Plata County Coroner Jann Smith, only a few bones were recovered during last month's search, leaving investigators with little to work with when trying to determine cause of death.

Smith stresses that the area those remains were found in is "very rugged," and it's not certain they'll locate enough of his remains determine how he died. They also don't have enough to go on right now to figure out when he died.

Investigators say the place where Dylan's remains were found was not a place he would have gone on his own. An investigation is ongoing, though no suspects have been named.

The family says their top priority now is seeking justice for Dylan and peace for their family.
