Dylan Redwine homicide: Is just-hospitalized dad Mark Redwine being stalked by haters?

In November 2012, thirteen-year-old Dylan Redwine disappeared near the southwestern Colorado home of his dad, Mark Redwine. His remains were found in June 2013, with La Plata County investigators launching a homicide investigation -- and while Mark has never been officially named as a suspect, he's been under relentless pressure from the mainstream press and (especially) social media.

The latest twist: Mark was hospitalized early Saturday morning after bizarre behavior he says was motivated by concern that he was being "stalked" by "haters."
