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.
