Here is Statement Analyst, Kaaryn Gough weighing in on the issue. Please note that the statement Kaaryn uses is quite upsetting, emotionally.
I have asked Kaaryn to join us on Crime Wire Tuesday night with special guest Elaine Redwine, as we seek to keep the case strongly in the public's eye, crying out for Justice for Dylan.
If anyone doubted Mark Redwine's guilt in this case, he did his very best to remove doubt when he appeared on the Dr. Phil Show, reneging on his agreement to polygraph, using the word
"we" inappropriately (he was by himself).
Pronouns do not lie and are instinctive. Here are some of Kaaryn's observations and analysis from the statements made by Mark Redwine. Note the abbreviation, "MR" is Mark Redwine.
I think we all agree MR had something to do with Dylan's disappearance and sadly, MR's words are painting a picture that Dylan is not alive. I think the focus of our SA efforts should now be on finding the verbal clues that will help lead to Dylan's remains.
Language is not accidental. Our words don't fly out of our mouths or from our fingers in random selection. Everything we speak/write comes from what our brain knows (the truth). It is the brain's default position to reveal what it knows. MR's brain is trying to tell what it knows.
Do you blame yourself too, a little bit?
I normally wouldn’t , but I do, I do blame myself . I relive this a thousand times and every time it comes back to I-- s-seeing him laying on the couch and I didn’t try hard enough, maybe, to wake him up to have him come with me knowing that he had talked about going to spend time with his friends and letting him sleep like he does so many time before, I beat myself up over that constantly. But that’s not helping me. And it’s not helping Dylan. I mean, it’s hard enough for any parent to have to deal with something like this and to sit here and beat yourself up over and over and over again about what you could have done differently, could have made the difference is a—not helping me stay strong which is what I feel like what I need to do for Dylan. I don’t know how to do it and I struggle with that every day, but it’s something that I believe I have to dig down deeper and deeper every day and find the will and find the strength to stay strong for him because I believe that he needs both of his parents. He needs me to do that for him and I know he needs his mom to do that for him.
Note the choice and order of words:
Note the choice and order of words:
"I normally wouldn't"--"normally"--there is something about this situation that is different from previous ones. What other events have occurred similar to this one? Is there a history of his children 'disappearing'? Has he been accused before of harming his children?
"I relive this"--"relive" speaks to a specific moment in time where an event of note took place. We don't "relive" hum-drum, day-to-day, non-important moments.
His brain holds onto this moment. Why?
"seeing him laying on the couch"--not "sleeping"
"beat myself up"--physical violence. The question was "Do you blame yourself?" and he acknowledged he did blamehimself. But then he moves to saying "I beat myself up" indicating that for him, blame and beating up are connected.
"beat yourself up"--no longer, "myself". He has distanced himself from this action. Still, he uses "beat up", a physically violent action.
"struggle" - He is having a difficult time either mentally, emotionally, physically, or all three. Deciding what to do. Deciding what story to tell. Deciding how to dispose of the body. Deciding where to dispose the body. Moving/hiding the body would be a struggle. Deciding to bury the body. Doing the actual digging would be a struggle. The act of shoveling the dirt back into the grave would likely be an emotional struggle (knowing this is the last time he'll see his son)
"dig down deeper and deeper"--not just "deep" but "deeper and deeper" suggesting he got to one level but then decided he had to dig further. He got to another level and decided he still had to go further.
