Heidi Tudela is the mother of Justin's best friend, Derek Tudela. I can understand a friend of someone suspected of killing their toddler, come to the defense of their friend and standing by them through thick and thin, even being vocal for them and proclaiming their innocence. In all actuality, Derek Tudela would be a person I would like having by my side in times of trouble. But why is the mother of Justin's best friend being more vocal than her own son? Why is Heidi Tudela online defending Justin at every turn and explaining away each piece of evidence as unrelated or a misunderstanding? Why is she doing interviews for him and speaking for him? Why is she trying to make the public believe Trista is responsible despite the police saying on more than one occasion that this was not an abduction, this was not a kidnapping. This is a criminal investigation that the blood evidence is specific to Ayla's disappearance and that they believe there was foul play involved? Why is she fighting so hard to try to prove Justin is innocent, and while doing so jeopardizing her reputation, her business, her credibility?
Is Justin really feeding this information to Heidi and Heidi is buying it, even when there are discrepancies in the version of events after time goes by? Or is Heidi taking it on herself to speak without Justin telling her to and in doing so contradicting things that Justin has said. How are we supposed to believe them when they have been caught in lie after lie?
In Justin's statement to the media he claims he has no idea who took Ayla. He does not know what happened to her. A statement from Heidi that was emailed to me by an unknown source states something very different.
Heidi Tudela Jody I think what you are asking about Justin in this is why did he leave her alone and the answer is he did not. She was within hearing distance of someone in her bedroom. Just across the hall. The problem is as we have said is that if no sound is made you hear nothing. And also Justin did not have a fear that Ayla was going to be taken. Even if he was told that or threatened it would you ever in a million years think that that certain someone was serious! That that person who said that in anger who was often saying things in outbursts of anger perhaps wa serious. It might be until after something crazy happened that you look back in hindsight and said OH my God that person said that to me me a few times! They were really serious and I did not believe them!
So either we believe what Justin fed to the media and released as his official statement that he has no idea who took Ayla or what happened to her and Heidi Tudela is lying or Justin is lying and Heidi is telling the truth, or they are both lying.
If Heidi is telling the truth, it can be inferred from her comment that Justin may not have thought this person was serious, so he would have to know this person well enough if he could hear these threats often enough and not feel they have validity. Justin would certainly have information to share with the police as to how to reach this person and I would have thought the police would have tracked them down along with Ayla well before the 3 month mark. Is Justin telling his side of the story and Heidi embellishing on it to make it sound more plausible to make sure people are believing Justin's story? Why does she have so much stake in the outcome of this? Why put yourself out there for the benefit of your child's friend? Why try so hard to point the finger at Trista? Certainly police have investigated Trista, before they seemed to want us to believe that a random person walked in off the street and stole away into the night without leaving any evidence and no one hearing a thing even though she states above that Elisha was within hearing distance of Ayla and should have been able to hear her. She says 2000 children a day are abducted under these circumstances, I would like to see where she gets her information from. Justin?
Heidi Tudela Guys not EVERYONE trusts Trista 's family it just seems like it when you go to the same blogs. Take a walk in the real world talk to real people. And even if at first a few of them are unsure I find that after talking to them they quickly say wow.okay now I get it.
Heidi Tudela She seems way too like she is saying Ayla is dead with nothing that says she is. Think about it. What proof is there? Children go missing everyday I will say that till I am blue in the face 2000 a day in the US. What proof is there that Ayla is dead just because she is gone? Tell me that Trista. Not the 4 drops of blood that is for sure. That can be explained by a cut on her foot. And the rest is not being said to be hers. So again I say what evidence is there I would like to know? Does she know something we do not?
I would like Heidi what evidence there is to tell us she is alive? No one has spotted her in 3 months, there is no sign of her. Trista has been investigated, taken a polygraph and although it was not fully completed, police were satisfied with the results enough to not request her to take another one, The same with her mother. Her brother passed his so unless he has totally been left in the dark that they somehow got into the house and took Ayla, they also have kept her whereabouts hidden from him.
I also find it suspicious that Ayla normally slept in a different room, so how did this supposed kidnapper know that Ayla was in a different room that night and where to find her? How did they know she would not be sleeping in the same room as her cousin that night? How did the blood get in the basement and cleaned up so that luminal had to be detected to see it without Ayla not waking up and Justin, Courtney, and Ayden not hearing a thing? How can Heidi say the blood is not related when police have announced it is SPECIFIC evidence in this case that was released to show the public the magnitude of this case?
So I am just going to say this again then why is someone trying so hard to frame and yes this time I used the words frame one person? Because that is what it appears if you really look back all the way to the beginning. They try to make it look like they are concerned about Ayla. But I still maintain as a concerned parent I would be more focused on wanting to believe she was okay than trying to prove she was not. And from day one they immediately thought that she was not? Why would you? I believe the back and forth you see in Trista is genuine. I believe she does not believe Justin would ever harm Ayla. But that she is being reminded by others that or prodded by others into her outbursts so to speak. If you look at her history. If you knew more about her family dynamics this would make even more sense to you. I was privy to some conversations and let me tell you the back ground conversation of her family was scary enough for me. The extreme nature of violence coming from her family members in background was something. And it went on for a long time not just minutes! And from what I understand that is the norm. Fist fights among all family members. Drug use not just alcohol or pot. Her and her sister not speaking because phone hit over her head and that is right now. Her and her mother barely tolerate each other. She is not actually allowed at her fathers home, the very one who misses Ayla so much? SO much anger in that family is all I am getting at. Also I would like to add. Has anyone noticed that if you are a "Justin supporter" You a likely to be threatened. Your livelyhood, some even have had threats of their children being kidnapped to know what Trista feels like. I have not heard of that happening to Trista or her family and friends. Seems as though there is quite an intimidation factor happening. Sorry to go on and on. And I am sure some will not be happy with me. But I am tired of this . Why do they and by they I mean Trista and her family get to put false accusations out there. And they do not have to be under the mircoscope at all? There is something fishy going on here all right I say Jeff but maybe what you smell is right under you nose!!!!
Umm, so now I am confused?!? Which is it Heidi? Why would Trista go back and forth over whether or not she thinks Justin hurt Ayla if Trista supposedly kidnapped Ayla herself? Heidi, are you not doing the same thing by putting false accusations out there? If you don't think it is fair to put Justin under a microscope, the person who was supposed to be caring for Ayla when she went missing on his watch, the person who bought a life insurance policy payable upon his toddler's death, whose bedroom her blood was spilled in, why are you doing the same to Trista and her family? Is it more a case of do as I say, not as I do?
Heidi Tudela As a theory what if she thought he would just call her and not the police because he would be so mad. She might have thought he would assume it was her and call demanding she give her back. And she would just say no. It is not after all a crime to kidnap your own child. And if the door is not it is not technically even breaking and entering
So if the above is true Heidi, why wouldn't Trista just have told the police she had Ayla if it technically isn't a crime? Why would she go through the extent of being on the news, lying to police, taking a polygraph, regardless of the result-If she knew she was guilty she would have known on the way to the station to take it she would fail it so why offer to do it? Why waste thousands of dollars on searches and draining rivers and having billboards made? Makes no sense, Heidi...
Why Heidi do you have so much invested in this case and proving Justin's innocence? Did your own son witness what really happened? Did he help Justin hide Ayla's body? Are you so invested because your son is involved with the insurance policy, was Ayla already deceased when the policy was purchased? Did Derek doctor the documents to make it appear the policy was purchased earlier than it really was? You have inserted yourself into this case and many of us are curious as to what you have to lose yourself. You have already been caught contradicting yourself, why are you lying to protect someone who is half your age and not even related to you by blood? Shouldn't be Ayla you protect? She was innocent in all of this. Doesn't she deserve to get Justice and have the truth be known?
