DURANGO, Colo. — Nearly two months after Elaine Hall filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her ex-husband, Mark Redwine, he is firing back with a countersuit.

These documents point the finger at Elaine, with Mark claiming had it not been for Elaine’s actions, their 13-year-old son, Dylan, may still be alive.

Dylan Redwine disappeared on November 19, 2012, one day after arriving at his father’s house for Thanksgiving break.

The following June, Dylan’s remains were found in Vallecito, near his father’s home.

Deputies say Mark was named as a person of interest based on evidence they collected, inconsistent statements he made, and his behavior throughout the investigation.

In the lawsuit, Mark says Dylan may have left his home, “possibly encouraged by Elaine Redwine and met with whoever or whatever caused his death.”

Mark adds Elaine’s push to blame him for Dylan’s death had led to death threats, vandalism and harassment so extreme, he’s “forced to live mainly on the road as a trucker.”

In addition, Mark says Elaine pursued a campaign to influence law enforcement to treat him “as a suspect– the only suspect” in their son’s death “despite the lack of any evidence in support of that theory.”

While the list of claims against Elaine continues, the countersuit says “Dylan’s cause of death may never be known.”

In the lawsuit, Mark says he wants to be paid back money spent on attorney fees and to have the his ex-wife’s lawsuit against him dropped.

We reached out to Elaine but have not yet heard back.
