Do We Have It All Wrong?

People still believe Justin is innocent. He has a loyal group of people who defend him on every blog, cite the constitution of the United States, insist he in innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, explain away every piece of evidence that points in his direction as unrelated, not relevant, a mistake, etc... Let's pretend for a moment that Justin is innocent, that these people are right and the majority of the people following this case are way off the mark. Let's play devil's advocate and see if it is possible that poor Justin has been falsely accused by the media and portrayed as a monster that he is not.

Justin gets Trista pregnant, does not know about Ayla until she is 7 months old and DHS requests he take a paternity test. He takes the paternity test is found to be the father and gladly sets up a payment arrangement with DHS to pay Trista any back child support he may owe.

Trista goes into rehab, Justin worried about his daughter, contacts DHS requesting that she go live with him so he knows she is cared for. He moves in with his mother to better care for Ayla, knowing she will be able to help him with questions and that it is a better environment than a bachelor pad with 4 other guys.

A week after Justin has Ayla, he buys a life insurance policy in case anything should happen to her so he can give her the proper funeral she deserves. He also files with DHS to cease his child support obligation to Trista so the money he was paying her can go directly to Ayla who is now in his care.

While carrying groceries into the house, he slips and falls on Ayla and oddly enough, she doesn't cry, her arm doesn't swell up or look disfigured. It isn't until the next day that he realizes that she may have broken her arm and rushes her to the emergency room.

Justin is worried someone is going to take Ayla and sends a text to Trista to voice his concerns. He doesn't know why, he doesn't owe anyone money, isn't involved in drugs, and has no enemies. He just gets a gut feeling, call it father's intuition. He does nothing about it.

Justin fails to bring Ayla to her doctor's appointment on the 12th, he forgot the appointment, mixed up the days, promptly calls and reschedules.

Justin has been home with Ayla for so long and needs a night out on the town, he leaves Ayla with his mother and sister and heads to Portland on the 14th. He is seen buying cigarettes at Cumberland Farms at 2am. He no longer is worried someone is going to take Ayla and feels she is safe with his mother and sister. He spends the night in Portland and decides the next day to move the rest of his belongings out of the apartment in Portland so they can move someone else in to help split the cost of rent.

Justin finally heads back to Waterville with his girlfriend and her son to spend some quality time with Ayla and get some time in with his girlfriend who goes to school, works, and singlehandedly raises her son. He doesn't get a lot of time with her because she is so busy and never makes time for herself.

Phoebe heads out to a sleepover at a girlfriend's house and lets the kids have their privacy. They watch movies, make a nice dinner for the kids, and put the kids down promptly at 8pm. Ayla sleeps in her own room because she prefers it that way while Elisha's daughter sleeps with her and Aiden sleeps in the basement bedroom with Justin and Courtney. Justin is no longer worried that someone is going to take Ayla, he thinks he was just being paranoid. No one checks to see if the doors or windows are locked, it is Maine. There is no crime here. The baby gate is securely placed at the top of the stairs, should Ayla wet the bed and wake up in the middle of the night looking for Daddy. It has been a long day, kids are a lot of work and everyone crashes. They are in such a deep sleep, they don't hear a thing.

At 8:40 am, they wake up and find Ayla missing. They don't know what to think and search high and low for her while Justin immediately calls 911. Suddenly he remembers his feeling that someone was going to take Ayla and now even has an idea who. They call no one else to report Ayla missing. The person at the methadone clinic only knows Ayla is missing before the police were called because they are psychic and had a dream about it the night before.

Justin tells Police all he knows EXCEPT who he thinks took her and why. He is scared if they find out they will kill her for sure. He is so depressed he does not talk to the media for two weeks or plea to the person who took her to bring her home. He does not search for Ayla with the other searchers because he knows Ayla is not there. Justin takes a lie detector test and is shown to be deceptive because he feels he knows who took Ayla but can't tell anyone. No one sends a ransom note or asks for anything in exchange for Ayla. They just want her for their own.

While Justin ponders over which movies to rent at Redbox, Ayla is still out there missing. He doesn't form a posse and start kicking in doors like Phoebe expects him to do. He just sits home and waits for Ayla to be returned by the person who took her. He does not trust Police enough to enlist their resources and authority. Phoebe is interviewed and says she was home the night Ayla went missing, wasn't the last to go to bed, doesn't remember if the windows or doors were locked and insists it was just a normal night, oh wait-I wasn't there. I forgot.

News of blood being found gets released, Phoebe claims she cut her foot while doing laundry, it could be anybody's blood, there were six people there that night (does that mean that the blood, in fact got there the night before Ayla went missing) Oh wait! Ayla had a small cut on her foot a while back. It was only 3 small drops, oh wait, 4 small drops. The luminol showed more? Someone attempted to clean it up? It was a bloody nose, it was not all Ayla's, it was old. Oh forget it, I am not commenting on the blood anymore. If there was anything there, do you think I would be standing here talking to you right now?

Phoebe and Elisha retain a lawyer who can assert their innocence claims. Justin and Lance are driving home from being out looking for Ayla and meet up with Elisha's daughter's father who is bad mouthing Ayla. Lance kicks him in the face but Justin who is so distraught over Ayla's disappearance is searching the backseats of cars as they drive by to see if Ayla is in one and doesn't see the fight between Lance and Justin Linnell. Lance doesn't feel like talking about it. He hates fighting and is ashamed of himself for stooping to such a low level.

2 months later and Ayla still isn't found, still no ransom note or request from the kidnappers. Justin still doesn't dare to talk to Law Enforcement and now refuses to talk to the media because they don't believe his claims of innocence. The public only twists what he says around. Instead, he waits by the window at the Tudela's watching and hoping this is the day the kidnapper is going to bring Ayla back to him.

Sound plausible? Sound like a father hell bent with the intent of finding his daughter? Someone who will put his daughter first despite what the public thinks of him? Who does whatever it takes to bring his daughter home? Who is doing everything he can to show the public, he is not who they think he is?

Justin, Elisha, Courtney, Phoebe, and most likely Lance know what happened to Ayla. If it was not an accident, if it was not cold blooded murder and it really was an abduction, why aren't they putting it all out on the table in hopes of finding Ayla and bringing her home alive? Why are they hiring attorneys, refusing to talk to the media, not being 100% truthful to law enforcement if they are genuinely innocent? Why isn't Justin out knocking on doors, looking for his daughter, especially if he thinks he knows who has her? Why isn't he calling that person out on national television and enlisting the help of AMW to track that person and Ayla down?  Unfortunately, only Justin knows the answer to these questions and sadly, he is not talking.


*For those of you confused about the reference to the methadone clinic, a woman who transports clients to the Discovery House posted a comment on my first post that when she went into work that day there was already talk of Ayla being missing, well before Police were notified. The Police Blotter confirms that Police went there to interview people about this.

**I spent the last few hours scouring facebook posts and comment sections on MorningSentinel.com to find Heidi Tudela statement that Justin failed the poloygraph test because he knows who took Ayla, he also hinted at it during his first media interview. If Anyone can find the exchanges between Heidi Tudela and whomever it was she was talking to, I would be much obliged. I will continue to look. I believe it is on the Morning Sentinel page but was sure someone copied and pasted it onto a facebook page.

    1. JFA: your story omits a crucial element...the custody dispute. This to me is the epicenter of the saga. Trista and Justin were battling over the custody for weeks. Justin's fears about Ayla being taken were most likely rooted in the custody dispute rather than any drug dealer dispute. To me it is too much of a coincidence that the two parents were battling over the custody...and then the baby suddenly goes missing.

    2. If Ayla was taken due to the custody dispute, then what good does it do for Justin to be out knocking on doors, or speaking to the media pleading for the kidnapper to return his child?

      The only way to get a child back from the other side of the family, is for LE to investigate that other side of the family and find the baby with them or someone connected with them. But if LE has tunnel vision and won't broaden their search to include the other side of the family due to their suspicions of the father, then I guess we have gridlock, at least for now.

    3. I am troubled by the fact that neither Trista nor her mother Becca Hanson were able to complete their polygraphs. Yet it sounds like LE wasn't interested in having them come back at a later time to re-take their tests. As best as I can recall, it was claimed by Trista and her mother that they each offered to re-take the tests, but LE said that was not necessary.

      Doesn't sound like LE is willing to look closely at them at all.

    4. JFA: You write a good storyline. Care to try re-writing a storyline that focuses on the custody dispute between Trista and Justin?

      Delete
    5. OK, let's go with the "custody dispute". At the time she disappeared, both Trista and Justin had parental rights to Ayla - Justin simply had physical custody. It would be comletely legal for Trista to have Ayla in her posession. Breaking into the Dip home would have been her only crime. Trista and whichever Navy Seals helped her to accomplish this feat would be really, really stupid and have far less charges pressed against them if they just gave it up and admit they took Ayla. She could just inform them she was convinced Justin was abusing Ayla and she took her for her safety. This is really a no-brainer, I wish you would come up with a better scenario that is at least somewhat plausable.

      Justice for Ayla thank you for putting all the rediculousness into one article. I think you have the same "anonymous" posting over and over again - there just can't be this many clueless people - can you track IP addresses being the administrator of the blog?

    6. I'm not justice for Ayla, but I will write you a story line on the custody dispute.

      How about the only reason Justin wanted Ayla in the first place was to get out of paying child support, or perhaps it was Phoebe who was paying the support for Justin and she was pushing Justin to get Ayla to get out of paying. It happens all the time and is a huge reason why there are custody disputes. The one paying thinks they can get the child, and give him/her survival food and it is much less expensive in their eyes.

      The above usually leads to child neglect or abuse or both. From all I have learned about Justin, I see this as the exact reason he wanted Ayla.

      There you have my take on the custody issue.

      Delete
    7. kimc: Sure, Trista would have fewer charges against her, and therefore a legal benefit, if she confessed to the break-in now. But she would not have what she wants most--custody of Ayla. At this point, Trista's chances of getting custody of Ayla would be even less than they were on December 15, when as a homeless, substance abusing mother, she filed for determination of custody. The only way for Trista to get to live her life with Ayla now, is to pin this whole thing on Justin, and then slip quietly out of the area to start her re-start her life with Ayla somewhere else. And she even posted on FB weeks ago that she plans to move away or at least wants to move away.

      Delete
    8. I can't track IP addresses, probably because this is a free site...

      I am not bought on a whole custody dispute. I think Trista had Ayla and Justin enjoyed his freedom and had no problems with Ayla being with Trista and coming to visit him on weekends and whatnot. Justin knew if he got full custody of Ayla, he could not continue living where he was, as a bunch of guys do not want to have a toddler living with them. Why would he want to leave the Portland area knowing his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts would still be in Portland and it would be a heck of a drive for a late night booty call.

      I don't think he ever had plans to take Ayla until she went to rehab and then maybe he decided that Ayla was not safe with Trista, maybe he only temporarily was going to take her and really was going to give her back when Trista got home but then decided he liked not paying child support and having Ayla there wasn't so hard, he had a lot of help from Phoebe and Elisha. Maybe that is why he never fully moved his things out until the 15th.

      Maybe the 16th really was the night something happened to Ayla or maybe she really was abducted as he claims?

      There are still too many questions and we aren't getting the truth from either side. According to maine.gov, Trista would have had to serve Justin the papers first that she was going for custody before filing them with the court. Trista swears Justin didn't know she filed, either she didn't file or Justin knew. Maybe Justin in a fit of rage, did hurt Ayla? I don't know the answers to these questions, I can only speculate.

      I appreciate all of you coming here and tossing theories around. I am glad you enjoy reading my blog, I enjoy writing it and look forward to reading the comments from all of you every day.

    9. anonymous @11:48
      Trista most likely would have retained physical custody of Ayla. DHS had already issued a determination for Justin to return Ayla to Trista and Trista had completed rehab. It's a sad fact DHS helps people like Trista and Justin everyday. They will find them housing, take them to parenting classes, get them therapy, etc. to help them keep their children.
      I think the main thing that makes your opinion on Trista so far-fetched is that again you are making Trista into a criminal mastermind who has fooled the FBI, LE and mostly everyone else in her "frame up" of Justin and this "homeless" mother has the resources to hide Ayla away somewhere waiting for this to blow over..

    10. JusticeforAyla, I enjoy reading your blog, thanks for writing it:)

      Delete
    11. kimc: so it sounds like you think that Trista could not have been behind Ayla being taken because: 1) Trista is not smart enough to fool LE; and 2) Trista does not have the resources to hide Ayla.

      Consider that lots of people do fool LE for a while, even common criminals, and then eventually are uncovered. Sometimes deciphering cases takes a lot of time. If LE would turn the white hot light of an investigation on Trista and her family and friends, this case may eventually be cracked.

      Trista does have resources in that she has many relatives and lots of friends. All she needed was one person willing to go and get Ayla and one home willing to take Ayla in for a while.

    12. Next you will tell us, this person Trista sent to carry Ayla out that night took the time to carry Ayla to the basemnet, where Justin, Courtney,and her child slept and injured Ayla, spilling blood, before they quietly left the building.

      No need to spin the 2 or 3 or 4 pin size drop story, WE know that isn't true!

      Delete
    13. That is YOUR theory, not mine.

      Delete
    14. anonymous @ 4:49 No, I don't think Trista could have been behind Ayla being taken for many reasons, not just the two you listed. I don't believe Ayla was "taken" at all but was subjected to some kind of violence by the Dip's or Courtney. Like the FBI, and the other LE investigating, I don't believe the Dip's and Courtney are telling the truth. I don't believe their time line, I think Ayla was gone before they ever reported it. I think they were alibi building, cleaning up and getting their lies straight before reporting her taken. I think Phoebe being gone that night was part of the plan - they wanted her on the peripheral as she's not very smart with her lies. They wanted Courtney there because she's the mastermind of the whole plan.

    15. there just can't be this many clueless people - can you track IP addresses being the administrator of the blog?
      .............................
      so by simply commenting on this blog, one should be subject to 'sleuthing' out ip addresses and then what? go further and investigate the commenter because you don't like their opinions? :O
      what next kim? will you be 'outing' more commenters after you track them down?
      i have a feeling my ip has already been 'shared' with others but i really hope not. i would feel very betrayed if that were the case.
      blogmaster abuse of ip addresses is a shame. obviously, if someone is commenting as anon or under a user name without an attached email address it is clear they would like to remain anonymous. that includes their ip address!
      J4A started this blog and hoped to remain anonymous. she had no nefarious reasons, she just wanted to help find a little girl.
      but the 'sleuthers' on SA and maintoday decided to 'investigate' J4A.
      why? no clue, since she was up front from day one.
      now she has a bullseye on her back.
      now you suggest someone should get their ip traced just for commenting an opposing opinion than yours?
      wow.
      i hope you rethink that position. i find it insulting, intrusive and endorsing censorship.
      i suggested to J4A that she could block ip addresses of commenters who were spamming or trolling her blog. i would never agree with 'tracing' their ip addresses.
      it seems like some arm chair detectives have no boundaries. when J4A was 'sleuthed out' one commenter apologized and i would guess regrets putting J4a into a potentially dangerous place.
      evidently kim, you have no qualms about invading anonymous commenter's privacy.
      i really hope J4A doesn't feel that way.

    16. I would not want to trace IP addresses to out anyone or to reveal personal info, only to block the ip address from commenting on my site if they are going to be abusive and name sources thar do not wish to be named.

      I have decided that it is too time consuming to monitor comments so just ended up throwing my dirt out there before they could.

      If people want to post my deep dark secrets here, they may since they are no longer secrets.

      You have nothing to fear here, I do not have access to IP addresses because this is not a paid site but only a free public blog site.

      Also my comment I made on the other post was sarcastic. Police praised Trista's side of the family for continuing to keep her name out there ie: billboards, interviews, vigils etc. Meaning they think she is doing what is neccessary to bring Ayla home, they would not praise her publicly,IMO, if they thought she was guilty of taking Ayla or having someone take Ayla. That whole entry was meant to be facetious. I think Trista is to blame for Ayla ending up with Justin, the.events led to Ayla's fate and I think that is going to be hell for Trista to live with, her own self imposed punishment. I do not think LE was playing good cop/bad cop by praising Trista in hopes she would slip up and tell LE where Ayla is. I honestly do not think she knows.

      Hope that helps :-)

    17. WOW NIMBUS, SORRY TO SET YOU OFF. I asked if the IP address could be checked, because I was curious if there was one anon posting or twenty. I never endorse censorship nor did I suggest an IP be "traced" because the poster has a different opinion from mine. I would ABSOLUTELY have qualms about invading anonymous commenter's privacy. Paranoid much?

  2. JusticeForAyla, do you know if LE was told by the roommate about whose car was used by Justin when he went back to his apartment in Portland? That car should be checked out!

    Were there others with him when he moved his stuff from the apartment?

    Who is the "person at the methadone clinic"? I do not get that part.

    1. Justin used his own SUV to move things out of the apartment. The roommates gave LE the description of the car. I do not think there were others with him, I asked the question but am not getting any more answers. He is not happy about my blog.

      Someone posted a comment under my first post about the methadone clinic. I also added a revisement for the people who did not understand that reference in the post up above.

    2. Hi, when you say HE is not happy with your blog, who are you referring to? Justin, your bro-in-law, the roommates?? I can see Justin not being happy about this blog, but why the others? Thanks.

      Delete
    3. Justin is not happy, he called my bil upset that I was talking. My bil is upset because he does not want LE to think he was not honest with them, he also is afraid that someone will find out who I am and in turn find out who he is and he wants to remain out of the media. The roommates are torn on what to believe. They have known Justin their whole lives and don't think he is capable of it but hard to argue the evidence too so although they respect that I have an opinion they don't always agree with it. My blog has caused some drama for sure.

      Delete
    4. Thank you. I can imagine it has been very hard for your bil and the other roommates, and I really don't blame them for wanting to stay out of the media, but on the other hand, the purpose of this blog and many others, is to find out the truth about what happened to Ayla. Sometimes the truth hurts.

      Delete
  3. The only way I could see this actually being true is if Justin really did owe some big money to someone ie. drug money. This would explain why he is scared to be completely truthful about what happened and why his family is also lying or withholding evidence on his behalf. HOWEVER, it wouldn't explain why he is not out there doing everything he can to try to get his little girl back. And it doesn't say much about him as a father if he's not willing to put his own well being aside for the sake of his daughter.

  4. I am seeing more and more comments that put Ayla in Portland for most of the time Justin had her. At the same time one neighbor in Waterville said she never saw Ayla. Some of Justin's friends in Portland are mentioning seeing Ayla and her playing with their children.

    Posters have been asking for anyone in Waterville to speak up about when Ayla was last seen. I would like to ask anyone in PORTLAND to also speak out about when Ayla was last seen.

    A definite date from a reliable source would be a great help, both to LE and to the public.

  5. J4A,
    Do you know where it was ever stated that he might know who took her? I missed that. I also do not get the methadone clinic part- who from that house called there looking for Ayla, or to inform someone that Ayla was missing...interesting piece.
    Also, only P and E hired an attorney- not sure why- P may be trying to protect E's future.

    I would understand if Justin does know who took her and is in fear that they have Ayla and are willing to hurt her, should he rat them out- but not so much fear of what might happen to him- although any human being would be in fear- he could still go to jail, lose Ayla, or if Ayla is already deceased, then possibly be held responsible in some way for that too...and although that should not stop him from coming forward, the first part definitely would. There also may not be a ransom note- that would be evidence from the ones who have her, and he would already know how much he owed anyway.
    You tried to spin it the story the other way, to allow people to keep an open mind, but you did it in a way that was too easy to read between the lines...and you spun it right back closing the circle so nobody could really try think otherwise.
    Well, we are all entitled to think whatever we want. Since everyone has it all figured out maybe they can arrest Justin and his family and find Ayla today.
    Until we hear more from Justin, he is only incriminating himself more- but again, we are not in his shoes, so we can only hope and plead with him to let us help him find Ayla by giving us, or even simply the LE the truth, the whole truth, if he hasn't done so already.
    It rests in his hands is the consensus. Until the complete truth is out and Ayla is found, I won't be taking sides though. One thing I've learned, well two, and they are sometimes contradicting of one another- is to use common sense- trust your gut instincts- but to always keep an open mind. Our brains are trained to come to conclusions, but sometimes we need to ask how we got to those conclusions.
    Thanks for your post again. I still enjoy this page-

    2. I could tell by Justin's behavior he was GUILTY from day 1. I was in a Police Explorer program here in York,ME for almost 2 years and did a job shadow at the South Berwick police Dpt for quite a while so I have been around law enforcement, He FLAT OUT REFUSED to do interviews. Then all of a sudden decides to do 3 interviews to show the public he's "SUPPOSEDLY" innocent meanwhile he shows NO emotion what so ever then from then on out REFUSES to do ANYMORE interviews, on the other hand Trista's been doing interviews from day 1 and is in tears BEGGING for her daughter's return in EVERY ONE OF THEM except for her latest ones.

  6. i hope to hell you are not a criminal defense attorney by trade, J4A.

    you've got all the bases covered in this Donna Reed script.
    do you have the explanation of the Chuckie Cheese mosh pit, and torn leg muscle from horsing around?
    i also read somewhere that Ayla missed some dr's appointment to get booster shots, but that couldn't be right, could it? Justin would never let Ayla miss her inoculations, he's way too conscientious a daddy.

    "Phoebe heads out to a sleepover at a girlfriend's house and let's the kids have their privacy. "
    this little beaut of a sentence gave me a flashback of Casey, Cindy and Caylee all cuddled up around the computer watching fresh home movie footage of Caylee visiting her great grandfather at the nursing home!
    two selfless, loving and caring grandmoms who keep right up to date on the welfare of their grand daughter living with them!
    i think Phoebe is following Cindy's playbook, the revised edition.

    1. Thanks Nimbus, I am not a criminal defense attorney, I would never be able to defend murderers and rapists. lol.

      I meant to bring up the mosh pit at Chuckie Cheese's but left it out by accident. I actually was initially going to attribute that to being a gang turf war, gangs are accepting new recruits as young as 18 months old here in Maine. Ayla was mistaken for someone else and got beat down. Justin knew better than to interfere because it would just make it worse for Ayla.

      I think the similarities between Cindy Anthony and Phoebe DiPietro are very concerning.

      Thanks for your great comments, I always laugh out loud when I read them and my daughter looks at me bewildered.

      your blog has become go to central for Ayla. you can't quit now.
      you are helping Ayla here, beyond what ANYONE so far has done, even her own families!
      Trista, if you read here or have pals relaying info to you, (probably a better idea because frankly, i don't think you can handle the brutality of the information that will be coming out here when the rats run from their sinking alibi ship.. i would like to attend a vigil for Ayla in Waterville, if you want to pick a date and time, i will be there to raise awareness for Ayla and send a message to the evils and to send love to Ayla. i know many others will make every effort to go in person or by cyber presence..i can take some video and photos and we can even 'chat' online with those who love Ayla so everyone can attend.
      ...........
      J4A, i think it's a shame that people felt the need to 'out' you. i think people get carried away with armchair sleuthing and will 'sleuth' anybody.
      i liked it that you were anon, i thought it gave the blog a 'neutrality'. i hope now they 'outed' you, they will quit 'sleuthing' you further as i think it's downright intrusive.

  7. I believe that justin and justin alone knows what happend to AYLA. As for drug dealers/money being the cause for AYLA missing is completly dumb. No drug dealer is going to take a child as payment/colladeral. A drug dealer is trying to stay low-key so they don't get caught with drugs so they would not want to take a baby and have all eyes on them. I think that the insurence will play a big part into AYLAs disapperence. Justin knows where AYLA is! Someone needs to start talking and fast. Let's pray she is ok and someone took her cuz they can't have children and said that child is being abused and its unfair and they snatched her without any noise in the middle of the night. If someone truley did take her bring her home ! But... I doubt anyone took her.. and I believe that investigators are building there case as much as they can before a arrest/inditment on justin. Remember the state has one shot at bringing justin to trial and no body = hard to prosicute. I think we all will see a arrest as the evidence is all pointing to one person and one alone Justin....
    I pray that whatever happend to AYLA that she had no idea what was going on.
    Its been 2months and no sighn of AYLA anywhere if my daughter was missing and was truly missing as justin claims I wouldn't pleading with the public till she was found.
    If there's going to be a arrest it will take a few more months so all the evidence is brought together and the DA says let's go we have enough circumstancal evidence to arrest and charge justin.
    I love this blog and I look everyday for new post. Also how far is the house AYLA went missing from to where justin was caught on tape buying ciggerets???? I think search/rescue should start from his old apt back .

    2. Good point about the drug dealers/money scenario. I don't believe it myself but I was merely stating that it is the ONLY possible way I could justify Justin's lack of speaking to anyone about this case. But you are right, anon - I don't think a drug dealer would be so stupid to kidnap a child for collateral, especially since it would turn into such a high profile case. I guess I'm just looking for any possibel reason why Justin isn't doing what he SHOULD be doing - looking for his daughter, talking about her, pleading to find her, and telling the whole truth.
      I too read this blog several times a day and am just so anxious to have closure to this case. It is amazing the emotions that people feel for a little girl that they don't even know. Ayla and her family are in my prayers daily...

      Delete
    3. Sally P--but what if he thinks Trista is involved? Wouldn't that explain why Justin is not speaking out, but waiting? As in... maybe he is waiting for someone to investigate Trista? I think if you substitute Trista for the so-called unknown drug dealer in this scenario, the pieces of the puzzle fall more readily into place.

      Delete
    4. That could be... but wouldn't Justin be urging LE to investigate Trista? Wouldn't he want to defend himself for the sake of his daughter? Unless he has his head buried in the sand he must see how the majority of people interested in this case believe that he is guilty. Instead he just isn't saying anything...

    Anon, yes I am assuming the discrepancies are due to lying... Just hoping to pin down an actual lie, concretely. DId anyone call his trucking school to confirm the catalog dates...I bet LE has. If this glitch is real, then it appears that they waited 5 days before taking her to the DR...not 24 hrs... If one can verify this, then it blows his and DP's credibility out of the water...not that they had any anyway... and shows not only definite real neglect, but shows that it may have indeed been a "trial run"... ALso, to these JD supporters out there, I was a neglected and abused kid by my parents, relatives and the older foster kids in our home. To the outside world, and even to us, my parents loved us, just not enough to overcome their habits/dysfunctional thought processes. They sang songs, gave us hugs and kisses, played and did birthday parties too, between up all night, passing out on drugs, whipping our asses with belts, exposing us to parties, violence and weirdos, and using us as drug carriers on planned visitation trips... Abusers are often adept at covering their tracks...look at that judge who's kid posted the video of mom and him beating the crap out of her for a fairly minor f-up... abusers do not always grow up to abuse...but many do...they are indoctrinated into the abusive cycle and can not see outside of it...makes me wonder if PD was a "yeller" or an adult fit thrower(yell, throw things, slam doors...)and that is why Ayla was so quiet around her, not only due to new environment, but a audibly scary one. Anyone know if the last date of class versus JD and PD broken arm time line has checked out? DP said he missed class to take her to the DR...I thought his last class was the day JD fell on Ayla...how the hell could he miss a class that ended 24 hrs before?

    2. I wonder other minor injuries she incurred during her fall with JDiP...
      Fall was the end of October, before Halloween, right?-
      Oct 20thth ~Only day it rained and he had school
      Oct 27th ~ JDiP claims fall happened last day of school,claims Dr appt 24 hrs later
      Trista says DiPs call her Nov 5th, Sat, tell her they are taking Ayla to the ER Dr. initially suspicious- Soft cast goes on
      Missed Dr Appt Nov 12th Most recent pictures are from when? NO cast in any pictures. Wasn't ball pit excuse to cover injuries she had before her broken arm, after one of her five visits before JDiP misused the DHHS system and took Ayla? I'm sure the Dr noted any other injuries at the Nov 5th Appt.
      CREEPY- suspected date of the "FALL" overlaps with LIP = JD either "FELL" then got the LIP, or got said LIP then "FELL", which makes me think the broken arm was trial run or a staged "ACCIDENT", which could then be used to justify the LIP when it came under scrutiny later, as he knew BEFOREHAND thre would be a future "ACCIDENT"/"ABDUCTION". ~ "Trista places the purchase in the approximate window Oct. 17 to 24. Ayla's arm appears to have been broken Oct. 19 or 20. " from http://news.yahoo.com/ayla-reynolds-life-insurance-story-littered-discrepancies-163100144.html
      Any Pictures from Nov 5th to Dec 16th? I am guessing that waiting so long(anywhere from 10 days to 16 days from the "FALL" until her ER visit,)is crucial to test if you can dispel any questions/deceive key people(Trista, Doctors) and move forward with your plan...
      They didn't have a cast on her arm in any of the photos because she probably never wore it. Their photo collection might end up fucking them in a court of law.

      -"ACCIDENT" ~11th of Dec weekend-neighbors reported seeing cars lining the street for a party at the house(not sure of date, thought I read it was 11th weekend)...
      DIPs deny this, PD says there was no party several times THIS is sensitive Anyone flopping there this weekend is privy to the event, and the cover up...this gives them a week to "fix" the "situation".
      - JFA friend - 2 women handing sleeping? baby in pjs with no jacket, to man(in van?) 7pm- several days before "ABDUCTION" reported~ around the 13/14th.
      ~Disposal could occur here,driving a distance to a reclusive, easy to access area.
      JDiP and CO drive to Portland, clean out apt, tie up loose ends, get $?,... get out late, stop at 2am for cigs. 15th- supposed to Head back WV, clean out grow room and give plants/equip to BV?, finish off details, rehearse story with players again, BUT get home late from partying in Portland WITHOUT COURTNEY at midnight(cause you just can't help your self, after all, you do have a substance abuse/alcohol problem , and rumor has it a fidelity problem too...)Fake 3am crash to support kidnap story
      PD gone for alibi to minus out of original "accident" equation as she is key, to get ready for the circus they will be creating the next day.
      LE is hanging a long line with many hooks, and DiPs have prob. already got a few in their lip without realizing it yet. If CR or ED were even remotely intelligent or cared anything for their own kids,they would take immunity- but I guess some can skate or cheat through college and not learn a damn thing(no enlightenment through knowledge there...) THis just speaks to their involvement on a "more personal level", as well as PDiP, and LDiP, who is probably dumb enough to protect them all without even being involved other than drugs...Poor Ayla...I sure hope you come home soon <3 <3 <3

  11. it also occurred ot me that the oxys at CR sisters house bust may have come either from that podiatrist that got busted selling fake scripts, OR what if they were getting them from "patients" like BV, who posted that he gets 50 oxys a month... Perhaps there is a drug ring that goes further around town than one might think...I saw a marine corps sticker on the back of one of the vehicles...in my area,we have problems with veterans(I am a vet too) selling their oxycontin and ms contin from the VA(who will send prescriptions BY MAIL)as soon as they get them, even in the VA parking lot... perhaps the drugs were gotten from several legal prescript holders illegally selling or trading them... 1000 oxys is a lot of pills...especially to be untraceable back to a triplicate form... certainly gets the ole gears turnin up there

  14. LE telling the adults in the house are witholding information, grave doubts about the abduction story, it is a criminal investigation, plus the blood evidence = people in that house know what happened to Ayla, and who is responsible for it.

    I am not convinced about how the insurance policy fits in the case. I just cannot see how that plan could have worked good for J.

    I was thinking about the girlfriend. She is the only one who is not related by blood. The family would not protect her (her only), unless one of their own is also responsible for it.
    I think a girlfriend would want to get her hands clean, would not protect any of them if she is not involved in the crime. So I think there is a high chance that there are at least 2 of them directly responsible for whatever happened to little Ayla.

    The blood evidence ties the crime to the house in Waterville. I beleive LE, there was no abduction. If there was no abduction, adults in the house are responsible/witnesses to either a crime that night or faking a kidnapping story during that night, or both.

    As far as I understand, C spends the weekends in Waterville, and is in Portland during the wk. If the "disappearance" did not happen on the 16-17, it had to happen during the previous weekend when she was there. Dec 10-11. No innocent person in their right mind would want to sleep at a faked kidnapping scene.

    He was in Portland on 14-15 dec, he might have got there earlier.

    I hope that tape will give the needed missing information to LE.

  15. OK I just noticed something very weird, must run it by getthem, vtlady and vitak...look very closely at the pics PD released of Ayla in her house...in fact ala of the photos that the Dips released of her while she was in their care...especially the ones up at TLLOM and the pster pic of Ayla in the tricolored clothes with drool/water on her shirt...Ayla appears to have a an injury fading on her nose(the bridge) and left inner eye, her right forehead, and her left cheek and lip(bruised and slightly swollen on left side). I at first thought this was dirt, or weird lighting. then I downloaded and zoomed in... If one looks at her pics on TLLOM, they appeared to be photoshop detailed at her left inner corner of her eye/nose. There is clearly bruising fading there, red lined eye for only the OUTER 3/4 of the lower left lid, reduced eyelashes in this inner corner, the white of her eye here is a totally different color, missing the dark rim of the pupil ONLY in this area, in All of the PD-released photos. In addition, the light spot in her pupil does not match intensity, or reflective position of the other light spot pupil.The bruising is especially apparent in the PD photo where she is holding a sippy cup, with a pouty look, in the DiP living room. She looks very sad, and there appears to be another very blue bruise on her left wrist, just below her hand. I paint portraits and have a TRAINED eye for tiny details, and am very familiar with light reflection patterns and shadowing, and with color and intensity values. something is not right with these photos. Is there a photo/digital expert out there that can look at this and give an opinion on if they are "fixed" or unaltered, etc...? something is very off...

  16. i have an ugly question:
    was the baseball bat Lance used in the sidewalk beating checked for blood type and DNA?
    what if it was used to break Ayla's arm and later to kill her?

    this is not the first time a baseball bat was used in connection to the Dipietros, the 'teen vandal' also used a baseball bat to break the windows at Violette Ave.
    the man was beaten almost to death with that bat; maybe he was not the first person that bat had been used on. :'(
    i could see 'cock of the walk Dipietro bros out there flaunting a murder weapon right in the cop's face and also contaminating it with 'fresh blood'.
    imo, all the baseball bats need forensic analysis...

    1. He didn't use the bat in the fight but his hands likely would have had the other Justin's blood on them and he must have picked the bat up before he left. Doubt the DiPietro's are smart enough to plan that intricately though.

      I know you didn't mention this but to others who think Trista is responsible, I think LE would have broken her by now. She doesn't come across as a criminal mastermind to me. Also doesn't appear she has the means to pull off a kidnapping.. ie: car, money, smarts to plan it and follow through with it. Also if someone who knew Ayla took her, wouldn't they have made a point of taking her favorite blanket or toy for comfort for her. Police made no mention of anything but Ayla taken, not even her winter jacket or boots. A mother would not take her child into the cold unprepared for the elements

    2. J4A, a simple statement by Trista of where she was the week that Ayla went missing would certainly reduce all speculation of her possible involvement in Ayla's disappearance.
      i don't know what the hang up is with Trista telling us where she was, but i suspect she was gallivanting around or doing 'something' that won't garner her Mom of the Year award, so she doesn't really want that information made public.
      guess what Trista..too bad. finding Ayla is more important than your tattered reputation, and it is SOP to explain your whereabouts given that one half of one percent of ALL child abductions are found to be parent-generated. so tell us where you were that week and while you are at it, (just for me), please be kind enough to tell me where you were for halloween and thanksgiving.
      easy enough..just do it and help the 'investigation' move forward and not waste more time with speculation about your 'mysterious' where abouts. TIA!!!
      also, we NEED to know when someone OTHER than a Dipietro LAST SAW AYLA!

It appears Ayla also has a bruise on her right collarbone area just above her pj neckline, in addition to her left hand and face. Look carefully, it is not a shadow, as the photographer took the pic dead on, and the lighting shows this. There are no lateral shadows. That is a fading bruise, and the one on her hand looks like a small hematoma.

  18. 'contaminating' the bat with 'fresh blood' of not just any old person..but a father who had a child in the house the night of Ayla's disappearance!
    if Ayla is 'found' to have been beaten to death and the baseball bat examined, it now is covered with a 'different' dad's blood.
    i was reading another site where everyone was asking, 'how could the Dipietro brothers be so stupid as to beat a man with a baseball bat when they are smack dab in the middle of a child abduction case and being looked at as potential suspects?"
    the above scenario is a credible answer to that question.
    they could have rendered the murder weapon totally useless as evidence against them and opened a brand new avenue to accuse someone else, 'a different father' of the crime.

    yes, it does seem as though they made a special point of pointing out that bat was 'cast aside' and 'never used'.
    so if that 'different father's' blood was to be found on the bat, it could only be there from some other time. hmmm.
    i wonder if the bat 'accidentally' rolled through a few blood drops.
    who carries a 'miniature baseball bat' to beat someone up and then tosses it aside to use their fists and feet.
    this story is bs..i think they went looking for this guy to plant his blood on that bat. it would 'screw the pooch' royally and they would be home free on a murder charge.

    1. I haven't had a chance to look but certainly will. Maybe that is why Justin never let Trista see her because she would notice the bruises.

      I want everyone to keep in mind though that a toddler is prone to bruises, I have a 2 yr old and she always has a bruise or two somewhere from playing and falling or bumping into things. We went to a birthday party this past weekend and she has a bruise on her forehead that I cannot account for although I was with her the whole time. Ayla's situation is a bit different though because he has already shown neglect by not taking her to the ER immediately when she broke her arm..

    4. Children, especially at Aylas age are awkward and clumsy. I don't see anything dramatic in the photos. Why would they offer up photos of 'doctored' pics? Why would they even take pics of her if she was beaten? I remember my daughter, years ago, in the tub...I wondered how the school hadn't called childrens aid there were so many bruises and scrapes on her. She was proud of every one!

    5. Sparklin-20 month olds do not go to school- I do not think Ayla attended Preschool either, nor had a nanny or any other caregiver than FAMILY, so who is there to report it, or say if the pics are different... Photoshop pics could hide not only abuse/neglect, but also might hide something that seriously screws up their timeline and stories about her injuries and "FALL"/broken arm and her cast. which also speaks to intent... Who said she was beaten anyway? Neglect/rough handling = abuse, but does not = beaten.Beating kids leaves distinguishable/obvious marks that often do not look accidental. Accidents, whether from neglect or intentional,"ACCIDENTS" leave corresponding, matching injuries that lead investigators that they are just such. Sometimes ID between the two is difficult...but when evidence or injury sites, size, shape, etc... do not match injuries possible from accident laid out in the "STORY"...

    1. If Trista wanted Ayla back, all she would have to do is wait for Justin to leave the house and take Ayla. The DIP could not do anyhting about it (Just like Justin took Ayla from Trista mom.) They could do it back and forth until the courts actually gave one of them custody. The law does say that she cannot take Ayla directly from Justin... It sounds like Justin spent enough time elsewhere. Why take her in the middle of the night.. And so far, I have not heard any motivation for Trista to actually hurt Ayla. I'm not saying that Trista is a perfect mom, but I do not think she is directly involved in Ayla's being missing. It doesn't sound like LE is either..

    1. Trista would have no connection to the blood in the basement. But that tiny amount of blood may have no connection to the disappearance of Ayla, but rather may have resulted from a typical toddler injury.

      Trista stands as the person with an overwhelmingly powerful motivation to have someone snatch the child. It is called the maternal instinct, and it probably the most powerful motivating force in human nature.

    2. anonymous 3:17PM
      where did it say that it was a "tiny" amount of blood? According to police it was more than a small cut would produce, police are concerned with the blood. I have boy and girl two year olds. Yes, they get many typical toddler injuries, bruises, bumps, scrapes, scratches, but rarely involves any blood, and the once there was blood, it was not enough to spill onto anything. Trista is obviously not in any position to stage a "kidnapping", police do not consider her a suspect from all indications.

  24. Well the other thing that really bothers me is the soft cast. NONE of the last known photos of Ayla show her wearing a soft cast, though she would have worn one the whole time with DiP exept about two weeks. I looked at her pics, and you can tell the order of them by her dentition. In the earlier ones, she has only two bottom teeth, then three, a few pics her tooth is erupting and you can see this,then four teeth. NO CAST. In addition, she does appear to have a large bump with a central spot and perpherial bruise on her forehead, right side, in EVERY later picture after she has three teeth. In all of the pics where she has four lower teeth, she has what look like bruising and swelling in the places I mentioned(nose bridge, inside corner left eye, etc...) though they look much more diminished.The TLLOM pics don't show her arms, and I think, again by the size of her teeth and her new upper teeth, that this may be one of the most recent photos of her. Weird The Dip clan and associates chose these pics for a reason-the "best" ones they had of her, some are so fuzzy...like the one at the top of SA's page-she looks to actually have a goose egg lump on her forehead and a black eye on the left, but because of the blur... Weird

    3. After posing about the broken arm timeline, I now see this morning that is in the news. Somehow I knew the broken arm happened the week before, the 19th, as SA will show, the slip up was when they claimed he missed class because he was so worried(classes ended the day before according to his account). This brings me back to the photos released by the DiPs. I thinks they were chosen because of what they did not show, which was any insight into the "normal" family life, other than they let her run around with a broken arm and no soft cast. All of the living room photos and the dancing video show NO toys on the ground, no books, etc... very sterile and neat. Where was she playing all day? I still believe she looks to be recovering from some sort of injury. Yellow or brown tinted skin = old bruise. It also appears in one photo that she has a fingerprint bruise on her inner left arm, below the armpit, unless it is patchy dirt, but she looks very clean, so probably not. Hmm, I also think her "disappearance" has to to with the gate, but I don't think anyone beat her with it. It was either involved in a "accident" due to neglect/drugs or is a key object being used to cover the truth, so has been inserted into the story they gave to LE. I truly think that it happened the weekend before, on the 10th or 11th, as this is when the kidnapping texts were, the missed appt on Monday, and the alleged answer to the portland roomie/friend that the reason was he was too drunk/hungover from partying the night before to take Ayla to the doctor. I read a post that the neighbors reported cars lining the street fro a party there on the weekend, but the Dips denied it. Perhaps it happened Friday/Sat. night after a hard night of partying, and the people flopping at the house were the witnesses/participants. This gives them one week to clean up/rehearse stories. etc...This also fits the tip about the two ladies at 7pm handing a sleeping? child to a man, with no jacket on... this would be around the 13th/14th. The 14/15th JDiP was in portland cleaning up loose ends, 16th everyone gets ready to go nuts for an audience of anyone listening the next morning-do or die...

There was a lot of back and forth and Heidi said Justin failed the polygraph because he knew who took Ayla. Do you remember that? If so do you remember what article it was under?

    4. I will look for you, because I do read it everyday, but there was a couple days not long ago that I missed because my daughter was ill. But when I went back and skimmed there was alot of commenting, I will look into it for you no problem. Sometimes I think it can come across as bullying. I know that many of the commentors, have been there since the beginning as have I. Sometimes I think frusturation gets the best of each of us from time to time. I know I get frusturated with the lack of common sense at times.
      I will look into this for you and if I am able to locate it I will post the information here.

    5. I comment on the Morning Sentinel a lot and I do not remember this conversation.. although I know that I do not catch everything. How long ago was this? I know that if you find one comment from HT1965 that you can click on their name and then "Activity" and see all of the comments that they have posted. I'll try to look for it too.

    6. Purple Butterflies,

      I wonder who you are. I comment alot too........I also don't recall reading this specifically but I also missed those few days. But I also know that the other posters would have NEVER let a comment like this slide.

    9. Hey Annie- I did notice that you were MIA- did you see that Katie did reply to your comment the day before last.. She hit a nerve with me.. kind of set me off on a posting spree.. I'm not normally that outspoken..

    10. Yes I did, and I have been waiting to cool down and have been working on my response. This case has struck such a nerve. i have a baby girl that is 3 and looks somewhat like Ayla, It just gets under my skin to no end. She didn't even truely address any of the questions I posed to her. And I was only asking her to look at the stated facts by police OBJECTIVETLY and stop hiding behind the "I am for Ayla" and then talk to no end justifying the actions of those that know more than they are saying. I get angry cause this precious baby (regardless of her fate and I fear it is most likely not good) DESERVES to come home, deserves closure. Her very existence is demeaned and degraded by their silence and secrets.

    11. And I think your posts are always thoughtful. I think many of us that comment on the MS are frusturated. I continue to comment to keep the popularity on Ayla, to keep her name in the paper and on the mind of the community. To put pressure on those involved, I want them to be uncomfortable so that hopefully someone will come forward.

    12. Annie, I agree. When I asked her questions too she never answered. Instead she went on to defend Justin. I cannot believe that he has people that is actually buying his crap. I would buy it too and give him the benefit of the doubt if he was in the news pleading for the "kidnappers" to bring Ayla back. I think he is scared to talk, knowing that people are going to see right through his lies. If he was telling the truth he wouldn't care if people thought he was lying.

      Delete
    13. As to your 2nd post... I also agree. I want the articles to stay active too. One of us will say just the right thing, that is going to make it back to the DIPS, and it will hit too close to the truth and sent them all into a frenzy. (I would have thought the comments about DHHS and Gabby would have got Elisha talking..) The truth will come out someday.. and I will put money on the fact that Elisha has a lot to do with whatever happened to Ayla...

      Delete
    14. ooops.. I did not mean to say "fact". I meant "I will put money on Elisha have a lot to do with... I do not think she is in it alone. My fealings are that they all are in on it in one way or another.

    15. Purple Butterflies,

      I responded to the post. I tried to be nice. It is getting harder and harder. I am not a mean person, but I get frusturated. Ignorance is a choice, at least that is what I believe. I get frusturated because it seems so clear. The facts.... I am not even talking about pointing fingers. But geez louise, stop defending and if your for this baby, go to the police again, talk more, why stop, do anything to help, don't defend why the choice has been made not to help, not to talk....I keep going back to Ed Smart. I would DO ANYTHING, ANTYTHING for my girls. They are 3 and 9 and I can't even imagine this or wish on my worst enemy. I just with people with the info would do more

      Delete
    16. Annie, I replied to your post, it is taking a while to be approved. (MS seems to like waiting hours) The only thing that Katie is "clear"ly stating is that she, much like Justin, knows how to lie. I posted on there to see if anyone else agrees with me. I may be looking at her statement too closely.

  26. To J4A: The if you go on the Morning Sentinel Page and search the word Ayla, check the comments between Feb 1 to the 5th. She was commenting on those articles A LOT.

    She was fiercely defending Justice the days right before the stories came out about Lance and the assault on Justin Linnel (the birth father of Elisha's baby Gabby) She was then silent once this story broke. I just looked and saw many comments from her between the dates I indicated above.

    3. Article on MS:

      Ayla's home struck by vandals (posted on the 5th)

      Didn't read all the posts but MANY between Heidi and hipbee, good place to start.

      Delete
    4. Agreed, hipbee really had Heidi in a snit. If I remember that was the most prolific posting Hiedi did on that site. I wish I could recall that comment J4A was,looking for but I just don't.

  27. Sorry if this is a repeat or old news - but wasn't Courtney Roberts sister Brianna arrested for drug trafficking in mid January. Do you think this has anything to do with the DiPietro's? Is there a possible drug using "relation" there. Just curious if you knew of anything else that has been said about this

  28. AAAACK! I HAD IT! I found the heidi post about texting was trying to cut and paste and link it and my tablet froze. Relooking now. Why didnt I bookmark? Arg. It was on the sentinel. Comment was made two weeks ago in response to a question from jillian vaughn.

  29. Glad someone else saw it so I know I am not losing my mind. Thank you for searching. I also found some interesting comments from her on the facebook page Armchair Detectives for anyone who goes on facebook.

    Here is a link to a youtube video made over a year ago by the Tudelas bashimg WTVL PD. My tablet wont play the video but here is the link. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D3SlbErLWRd0%26feature%3Drelated&feature=related&v=3SlbErLWRd0&gl=US

    1. I was finally able to view that video and it is by Adam Tudela and Taylor Tudela, not the Tudela's that are aiding and abetting Justin

    2. Isn't Adam a son of Heidi and brother of Derek? I thought I had found an Adam in Heidi's household on a people search.

  30. I have also seen several comments from way back at the beginning that there is a connection in this case to Bath Salts? Wondering if you had any insight on this.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I do not know whether that is a rumor or if there is some truth to it. I know that the people living at the apartment in Portland do not do bath salts or any hard drugs. I do not know what Justin does for drugs or if he does any for that matter. The only connection to this case involving drugs was Brianna Robert's drug arrest and Trista being in rehab for alcohol abuse.

      Delete
  31. A guy who was selling bath salts was arrested for the 2nd time at his store in Fairfield on February 4th. (Prior arrest for it was around November or December.) Maybe they were looking at him in relation to that rumor or they were just keeping tabs on him and it's unrelated.

  32. The alternative account of what happened to Ayla that night, allegedly "written" by Angela Harry, though Statement Analysis has suggested otherwise, made a very specific reference to the baby gate.

    it's deliberate inclusion in the narrative immediately set off a red flag for me.

    When the discovery of blood by luminol was revealed, it intensified my suspicion that the gate was involved in Ayla's death, and that perhaps in a rage she was beaten with it.

    In addition, the fact that Courtney Roberts was so much the focus of that narrative, convinced me that she was either responsible for what happened to Ayla, or was an accomplice beyond simply knowing about what happened to her.

    It is very difficult visualizing how all of these pieces fit together.
    It can not be done with out confronting the likelihood of Ayla having suffered.

    1. tamta, i too see a beating death.
      the broken arm and other injuries, drugs, short tempers,violence and blood found all foreshadow someone seeing RED and going postal.
      the baby gate could well be the murder weapon.
      ************************
      Justin is unemployed, under pressure by his family and the world to 'shape up' be a 'man' and care for his child. i would bet his twisted mom belittles him, suddenly he has to give up being free and young and wild and spontaneous to sit home with a drooling baby. he's a limp d*ck from all the stupid grown up 'worries' and drugs=impotent and a nagging gf who wants a man with some get up and go in the bedroom and the workplace and gets out of the internet meme of his mama's basement...
      yeah..this is a guy who can explode. fast. hard. and without warning.

  35. LE must have some good evidence against Justin,maybe they caught them in a lie? For LE to rule out Trista she did have motive to hide her if she thought her child was being abused,And they say No abduction,they have found proof of something.Or they wouldnt tell the public No Kidnapping.

  36. Its truely pathetic that people can be so cruel when J4A is just another concerned person trying to get to the bottom of what "really" happened to Ayla. J4A is a good friend of mine who I have known for many years and I think what she is doing by writting this blog is GREAT! She is a loving mother as am I and when a tragedy like this strikes in our home town it really eats at us. I think it is shame that the people Ayla was suppose to be SAFE with and were suppose to PROTECT her FAILED her!! Whether it be Trista or Lance someone knows what happened!! This sadly to say is another Casey Anthony case. I prayed as soon as they offered up a$ 30,000 reward someone would talk...that makes the parents of Ayla look all more suspicious because obviously going to prison for murdering your own child isn't worth$ 30,000. You'd think the guilt and sadness would make them confess...some people are just that cold. My personal thought is that the fathers side is hiding information. I hope we are wrong and Ayla is safe somewhere. I could go on and on about this topic, its very sad. I hope Ayla does get Justice soon.
