The parents of missing Dylan Redwine who was last seen at his father’s home in Vallecito, Colo. during the Thanksgiving break last year appeared on the Dr. Phil show on Tuesday. The hour was filled with accusations on either side and ended with whether Dylan’s father, Mark will be taking a polygraph test on Dr. Phil’s show tomorrow.
Dylan’s mother, Elaine told Dr. Phil that she had not directly talked to Mark since 2009, and have text messaged instead, even after Dylan went missing.
Dylan was last seen on Nov. 19, 2012 by his father when he left to run errands that morning. Dylan had just flown in from Colorado Springs to visit his dad. Mark had agreed to take Dylan to visit his friends that day, but he stated that Dylan didn’t get up so he left him sleeping on the couch. When he returned around 11:30, the TV was on the Nickelodeon channel, a bowl of cereal was in the sink, and there was no Dylan.
During the Dr. Phil show, Elaine point blank asked Mark, “Did you hurt him?”
“No, I wouldn’t hurt him. What kind of mother are you to believe I was even capable of doing something like that?” Mark responded.
Elaine was emotional and believes Dylan’s father had something to do with his disappearance and probably killed him, reports KRQE news. Where Mark believes that Dylan may have been abducted while walking to a friend’s house. Mark also pointed out he wasn’t the last one to see him as a mail carrier saw him walking on the road.
When it came to light that Mark had failed a previous polygraph test, Dr. Phil offered to bring in Jack Trimarco, a world-renown examiner to give him another test.
A person can fail a test if a question is not controlled and is an open-ended ambiguous question given by the examiner. For example, if an examiner asked, did you cause your child to go missing.
“The reason they fail it, is because they are thinking, ‘I let the child go outside and play that day, and feel responsible.’ A better question is do you know where that child is now,” said Libby, a polygraph examiner.
Libby noted that for the best results the person who is taking the test should be only given about 10, yes or no questions and people do not fail polygraph tests because they are nervous as examiners know how to account for that.
Mark says he’s tired of having the finger pointed at him, and he’s willing to take a polygraph test to help clear his name. When the time comes, will he take the test?
On Dr. Phil’s show tomorrow, the viewers will find out if Mark has agreed to take the test.
