In my last post I referenced a few things that confused some of you. I mentioned the methadone clinic and that someone knew Ayla was missing there well before it was reported to the police. I had assumed everyone had read the comments under my very first post but many of you hadn't. Here is that exchange:
I also had made a reference that according to Heidi Tudela, Justin failed the polygraph test because in his mind he knew who took Ayla. Some of you searched all over http://www.mainetoday.com/ for me trying to find the exchange I was looking for. There were numerous posts from Heidi Tudela, using the username HT1965. She makes a few references to Justin taking the polygraph test but not the reference I was looking for. I literally spent all day poring through facebook posts and different webpages devoted to Ayla and I finally found what I was referring to in my post. The post I was looking for actually was from an exchange between Katie Hitchings and Heidi Tudela on Katie's facebook page:
Heidi Tudela -- It is not that black and white the police know that. Shame on them. They would not "show" him the results. I would have wanted to see the results myself. And they only explained parts of it. Secondly you do not pass or fail a polygraph It is evaluated one question at a time. So each question can be evaluated. For example Justin was asked "did you have any knowledge of Ayla's disappearance" He said "No" He may have been thinking in the back of his mind well except for I think I know who may have taken her. Which he does have some thoughts on that... So then the police can say Justin the way you answered a question on Ayla was "questionable" that is all they have to tell him unfortunately. But no one knows that or understands. So again I would want to see the actual results but they would not show him those on that Justin is absolutely correct. And Katie is also correct they can tell him anything they want in an investigation like this and have I have seen them do it. It is like watching a tv show!! We understand why they have to do it and so does Justin but the fact is they are still doing it so hard to believe what they say! They even came to him and told him Ayla was dead very sad. And of course it was not true. So there's so much more that I wish people understood.

If Justin is not being truthful with LE about what happened to Ayla and if we are all way off the mark here, why hasn't Justin made more of an effort to find Ayla? Why hasn't Justin told LE who he suspects took Ayla? Why not have this person's face plastered all over the news until someone tells the police where they are and ultimately where Ayla is? Drug dealers do not take children in exchange for a drug debt. The mafia doesn't take children. It is too risky.
Hearing Justin supporters claims, they want us to believe Trista took Ayla. Why? They want us to believe Trista was desperate because she knew the courts would not award Ayla back to her. If Trista is being honest with us, we have no reason to think they would not. DHS and Judges in family court believe in reunification. They will work with the parent to do what it takes to bring the child back home. They take into account if the parent received help for their issues, she did. Could Trista provide a loving home for Ayla, judging by the photographs of Ayla in Trista's care, she did. Was Trista able to provide a roof over Ayla's head, yes. Even if she was staying in a motel room for the time, she was providing a roof over her head. Mothers stay at homeless shelters with their children and that is not reason for the children to be removed from their care. DHS likely would have fast tracked Trista into a housing program. The court will also look at who the child had resided with the longest and that was with Trista, was Justin paying child support regularly? No, he was in arrears. According to Trista's website, he did not even see Ayla regularly before he took custody of her. The courts will look at that too. Neither of them have a job that we know of so that won't count against Trista. Trista also retains custody of Ayla's sibling and courts will try to do everything to keep the children together. Trista also had a signed family team meeting agreement through DHS stating that all parties agreed that Ayla would be returned to Trista once she completed rehab. Justin did not return her and proves he is not trustworthy.
Trista would not have had to resort to kidnapping her daughter, because there was no official custody agreement, Trista could have gotten Ayla for the weekend and simply not returned her. Why uproot her life, change her identity, the identities of her children, move them away from all family members, to start a new life in a strange new place? We know she did not have the means as far as transportation and money required to do this. It is also unlikely that Trista possessed the ability to mastermind a kidnapping without either getting caught in the process or being able to keep up the facade while being grilled by law enforcement officers.
And what about the blood? Is the blood unrelated? Did Trista plant the blood in the basement while Courtney and Justin slept on her way out of the house with Ayla? I don't think so. Police timed the release of the blood evidence. They knew before they released it to the public whose blood it was and that it was related to Ayla's disappearance. They know more about what happened than they are letting on. LE also aren't praising Trista for doing what she is doing to try to trick her into confessing. They aren't accusing Justin and the others in that house that night of not telling the whole truth because they think they are innocent.
