DENVER—A Colorado woman says whoever killed her 13-year-old son was a monster for leaving his remains where wildlife could get to them.

Elaine Redwine tells KUSA-TV ( http://on9news.tv/15WAmft) that Dylan Redwine's bones were spread out when they were found last week in the southwestern Colorado mountains.

She says "he deserved so much more."

Dylan lived in the Monument area with his mother but arrived in La Plata County on Nov. 18 for a court-ordered visit in Vallecito (vy-uh-SEE'-toh) with his father, Mark Redwine.

The father says he returned home from running errands Nov. 19 to find Dylan was gone.

Elaine Redwine says she's grateful she asked her son for a hug before he left for that visit. But she never thought he wouldn't come back home.
