This is the Lawyer They Chose?

Ben McCanna published a new article last night about Phoebe and Elisha's lawyer debunking McCausland's claim that the paternal family of Ayla is not communicating with law enforcement.

I think Mr. McCausland pretty much summed it up:
"Communication is a two-way street," he said. "If your daughter, granddaughter, niece was missing, wouldn't you occasionally call police to ask for the status of case? Put yourself in those shoes."
McCausland added, "I will say (the communication issue) is not the case with Ayla's mother and her relatives in greater Portland."

That's right, while Trista and her family call investigators to ask if they have any new leads, what law enforcement has found, or what they are doing to find Ayla, Justin and family are not. Instead according to Pheobe and Elisha's lawyer:
Bourget reiterated Tuesday that his two clients are fully cooperative and they are in the loop.
"We get information from the Internet and by word of mouth," he said. "I'm hoping that if (investigators) find something, they would contact us."

What? They are in the loop because they look on the internet and get their information by word of mouth. Are you kidding me? If someone in my family went missing, I'd be getting it straight from law enforcement, the internet would be the last place I look. Plus, I would be calling law enforcement to make sure they are doing everything they can to find my missing family member. I would contact them so much they would be sick of me.  But it's okay, they have hope that IF investigators find SOMETHING, investigators would let them know.

If this is the lawyer they are planning to use for their defense, it may be time to find a new one. Maybe one who could come up with a statement that doesn't show their lack of concern for what law enforcement is doing to find Ayla.

  1. Is this the same lawyer who doesn't know if his 2 clients took polygraph tests?

    I guess the public is more "in the loop" than their lawyer. And, the public is "in the loop" just as much as his 2 clients.

    I can't wait to see how they (all of them, as McCausland named "daughter, granddaughter, niece") are going to spin this and cry "poor me". How LE is "leaving them out". We already know that Justin thought Ayla was getting enough coverage. There has been so many excuses from emotionally incapable to enough coverage, what is left? They are pretty much out of excuses...

  2. Ayla's father, Justin DiPietro, could not be reached for comment.

    Again?!

    2. Justin is "emotionally incapable" of commenting at this time. Or any other time, for that matter. IMO, the reason for this is that Justin is not capable of any emotion.....unless it is anger. THAT emotion he is VERY capable of.

  6. So, I have a question and maybe you all can help me out. Actually, I think it's a few questions:

    We keep hearing from anonymous internet sources that Justin, Courtney & Elisha are cooperating. Yet, the highest ranking law enforcement official involved in the case says that's a lie. Hmm, who should we believe here? (rhetorical!)

    Each time an article is published, the DiP's are unavailable for comment. What is the excuse for this? Is it the "enough coverage" excuse or the "emotionally incapable" excuse? Or, are we to believe they'll comment when "the time is right" and we'll be "shocked when the truth comes out"?

    One of Justin's minimal public statements included him directly addressing the kidnappers and telling them "you are not her parent". But now, we're supposed to believe the malicious lie that Trista is somehow hiding her?

    The DiPs do not communicate with LE, nor do they follow up to find out the progress in the search for Ayla. Yet, we are supposed to believe they are all doing things to find Ayla that we just don't know about.

    The Dips and their lawyers get all of their info about the investigation on the Internet and through word of mouth. Yet, we are not supposed to believe anything WE read on the internet, because it is all a pack of lies aimed at framing Justin.

    The only internet presence we can find for any of the DiPs would seem that they're currently interested in all manner of activities, except for the campaign to keep their missing baby in the public eye. Why would they want Ayla so far off of everyone's radar?

    So, I ask, if we are to believe that they are doing things in their own way to find Ayla or aid in the investigation, why is their participation a SECRET?

    When looking at the available resources and advice for parents of missing children from The Klass Foundation, John Walsh, NCMEC, Lost N Missing, Laura Recovery, etc., there are some commonly held beliefs about the best things to do to help find your missing child.

    So, why are Justin and his family and friends doing EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE?!

  7. The lawyer sounds like he knows the truth, too! Only he's going to pretend they are innocent so he can get a paycheck. Time to take your head out of your as....umm....the sand, lawyer.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Because Ayla's father wants to forget about her and he wants and hopes everyone else does the same (imo).

    They can't understand why people get so MAD, ANGRY, SAD, UPSET? Especially when THEY refuse to speak the truth, refuse to speak for Ayla... It's called emotion. We know Justin has no emotions. He is emotionally incapable. That is the truth. Strangers have taken on the emotion for Ayla that her father lacks.

    If Justin or any of his bud's need reminding why everyone else is SO emotional, here is a reminder (make sure to watch the video):

    How ANY/ALL of them can view that, and still refuse to speak for that precious baby, is beyond my comprehension. :'(

  9. I sincerely doubt they chose this lawyer. I would guess he was appointed Blythe state. Do these clowns have jobs to pay for lawyers?

    Replies
    1. Can't be appointed by the state until the charges have been filed. At least I believe that is the case. I know it is in VA.

      Delete
    2. I believe it's usually appointed by the court. I think you have to prove your income for that. I think Pheobe has a decent job so I don't know if she would even qualify, unless she claims responsibility for herself, Elisha and Gabby. I don't know if it's household income or just per person.

      Maybe they got a free one somehow. I've seen people mentioning legal aid. Maybe it's someone they know, or maybe it's someone they have used before (for their past crimes).

  10. StacieDee, you said it!

    BTW if anyone doesn't know, this lawyer also got into trouble with the Maine bar for harassing a woman. Great choice on that count, too. Gives him extra credibility when they want to heap blame on Trista.

  11. So I guess this lawyer went to law school with Lionel Hutz? You know Lionel? He's been in front of every Judge in the County, sometimes even as a lawyer.

    (little Simpsons humor)

    Anyhoo...While the rest of us are worried about this baby these clowns are in hiding, using half assed counsel to give half assed reasons why they could care less. Damn, it speaks VOLUMES!

  13. I think about the families of missing persons who try so desperately for any kind of media attention. Then, I think about this family that cannot even be bothered to respond to media requests for comment. Then of course, I get really, really pissed off!

    I think it should also be noted that this about the 4th or 5th time that McCausland has openly declared Justin, Elisha and/or Courtney a LIAR. He obviously has no problem pointing out inaccuracies when he sees them. And, he will point them out publicly to any media outlet who asks him.

    This leads me to believe that if there had been any inaccuracies on the "Answers for Ayla" blog, he would have pointed them out by now. That, along with McCausland's previous positive statements about the blog, leads me to only one conclusion....... that what Jeff is telling the public on "Answers for Ayla" is most definitely, unequivocally TRUE.

  15. ITA StacieDee!

    Also, I think this is (maybe?) the first time he included Phoebe. He usually says those 3 that were in the house that night. This time he said "If your daughter, granddaughter, niece was missing, wouldn't you occasionally call police to ask for the status of case? Put yourself in those shoes."

    SHE needs to step up for her GRANDDAUGHTER! We know thats not going to happen. She would have done so since day one...

    1. Oh, I didn't even notice that he called Phoebe out too! Thanks for pointing that out. (Of course, we were already aware that Elisha & Justin had learned to lie, avoid and deflect from their mama!). It is nice to know that LE is skeptical of the whole clan.

      Delete
    2. It's sad that LE has to tell you what you should be asking about in terms of a baby family member missing...

    3. imo: Phoebe played a bigger role in Ayla's "kidnapping" , maybe she drove the get-a-way car. ( transported Ayla to her final location) She is mighty quiet about her whereabouts that night.

      Something is not right with that woman. She is a liar, just not a good one. And, her attorney probably advised her to remain silence.

      Delete
    4. He did advise her to remain silent, he couldnt concentrate on sexting, and her yapping mouth at the same time.

    So it's not that the DiPietro family are refussing to communicatre with MSP, it's more that they have no questions for them right now. ..interesting

  18. I was told yesterday that the local media is simply playing Justin for ratings! Thats laughable. An out of stater who is getting her info and buying it from Justins defense team on the closed site where your not allowed to use your own brain, from what ive been told I have never been there because using my own brain is a must for me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am really curious as to why the lawyer is only defending Phoebe and Elisha. What is the reason he is not defending Justin, is it because if they go to trial or are charged he legally can't represent all 3 because of a conflict of interest? If they were all innocent, it is likely thy would all be represented by a family attorney but in this case it looks like defending Elisha and Phoebe would implicate Justin or vice versa. It pretty much solidifies my belief that one of them is guilty and it is either Justin or Elisha and Phoebe Any attorneys wish to answer that for me? Why would the lawyer not represent all three family members?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow. What a fucking load of crap. They're getting they're information for the internet? They're about as informed as we all are and we're not Ayla's family. That explains why this shitheads know nothing about the blood, "supposedly" or anything else. Ridiculous. What worthless fucking people. No fucking concern whatsoever, can't even be bothered to call up and ask how the case is progressing, more than likely because they don't want to be asked anything in return. It is so obvious these fucks know what happened to Ayla and are responsible for it. Assholes.

    2. What language I choose to use is of little consequence and has shit to do with this case. You know what doesn't help Ayla? One half of her family lying, not talking and hiding when they claim to not know what happened to her and that they want her home, but do nothing to actually help make that happen. And you're half-assed critique of my comment doesn't help Ayla either, so you come across as completely asinine. Since my potty mouth bothers you so much, I'm going to have to end this with a "go fuck yourself."

    3. Dana, you think your comment means shit to helping Ayla? Fuck off, and suck a DIP..You sound like you're more worried about Boo's creativness than what this thread is all about. I wouldn't care if the person who helps bring awarness to Ayla has a penis as a nose and says vagina every two seconds like a tick...What does it matter? Oh, unless you support the Dips...I see now. SO EFF YOU...Better?

    4. I guess you both can let your ignorance show. Just thought it would be nice if you could clean it up a little. It wasn't meant to start a big fight most people keep it clean. You want to sound like trash be my guest. I don't see anything creative in your language and I don't support Dips, I support Ayla and Trista.

    5. You want to sound like an uppity twat be my guest, but just remember, dipshit--we didn't start this fucking crap so blow it out of your ass. We've been here for AYLA, not for the fucking critique on what YOU like to read. If you have an issue, don't read my shit or Boos. And EFF OFF, you don't care about AYLA, you're a shit stirring waste of bandwidth.

    6. If we go back to your original comment, you were the one looking for a fight with what I guess you consider an insult. "I can't believe you think anyone thought you were intelligent at all." See? That's antagonizing and baiting. You were looking to start some shit and when you got it all you could come back with was "your ignorant." More of the same. When you can come up with worthier retorts, maybe we can get into it, but as it is now, you're not a challenge so I'd rather not waste my good material on you. How about you take issue with The Dips and Groupies instead of playing Vulgarity Cop? Oh, that's right. You aren't actually a supporter of Ayla or Trista. You're part of that whole TLLOM clusterfuck, looking to take the focus of what this entire case is about and start more fires. It's what you people do, what you're making a career out of. Censoring foul language is the least of your concerns, sweetheart. Get back to defrauding the public with phony charities and missing children funds.

    10. For the last part of your post I do not agree. I think Justin is wrong and if he did kill Ayla he will pay. No excuse to hurt any child no matter what. I also do not believe in any insanity pleas ever. You do the crime you pay for it with your life not just life in prison.

  21. Question:

    IF the DiPietro's COULD count on LE to "keep them in the loop" regarding any "new developments"...
    Then WHY WOULD THEY HAVE TO get their information by word of mouth or surfing the internet???

    By admitting they DO have to rely on these methods to "know what's going on", the DiPs are essentially TELLING US:

    "We NEITHER believe that we "HAVE BEEN" previously, nor "ARE BEING" currently, "kept in the loop by LE" with updates as to the status of Ayla's investigation.. NOR do we operate under ANY such illusions that we ever WILL BE."
