(Scroll down for video) A father brutally murdered his teenage son and scattered his remains at several locations because the boy found photos of his dad wearing a diaper and eating feces, according to police in Colorado.

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said that 55-year-old Mark Redwine was arrested on Saturday, in connection with the murder of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine.

A grand jury issued an indictment for Mark’s arrest after reviewing evidence presented by Sixth Judicial District Attorney Christian Champagne.

The grand jury determined that there was probable cause to charge Mark in connection with his son’s death.

The Bellingham Police Department apprehended Redwine in Bellingham, Washington, on a warrant issued by the Sixth Judicial District in Durango.

He is being held on a $1 million cash-only bond.

Following extradition proceedings in Washington, Redwine will be advised of the charges sought against him at a hearing at the La Plata County Courthouse.

District Court Judge Jeffrey Wilson will preside. The investigation into Dylan’s disappearance and death spanned four and a half years, culminating in Saturday’s arrest.

Dylan was 13 years old when he disappeared in November 2012 while staying at his father Mark Redwine’s house in Vallecito on a court-ordered visitation for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Dylan, who was living in Colorado Springs with his mother, Elaine Hall, flew to Durango-La Plata County Airport on Sunday, Nov. 18 where Mark Redwine met him.

Dylan made contact with friends and his mother by text message after arriving at his father’s house, on Sunday, November 18, 2012, and made plans to meet with friends the next morning in nearby Bayfield.

That was the last contact received from Dylan Redwine. Hall reported her son as missing to La Plata County Sheriff’s Office on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.

The first of many searches for Dylan took place that day and the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office began its investigation into Dylan’s disappearance.

In June 2013, search parties found human remains near Vallecito that were later confirmed by DNA testing to be Dylan’s.

Dylan’s older brother confirmed that he saw photos of his dad wearing a diaper and eating his feces. Dylan saw the photos and comforted his dad.

In response, Mark flew into a rage and killed his son. Mark denied that allegations, and blamed Hall for the murder.
