Yesterday, Statement Analysis posted an article entitled, Where Is Ayla Reynolds?, which also served as an outline of facts presented to date by Law Enforcement. The reason I reference his article, verses any others, is because as we know: Peter Hyatt of Statement Analysis happens to maintain the same overall theory of this case as we do at this Blog; granted, he may firmly maintain that Ayla is no longer with us, while some of us may choose to keep hope and faith alive in that Ayla is alive and returning home, but the general consensus is this: The three adults that were present the night of Ayla’s “abduction” know more than they are sharing”, and Justin more than likely is in tune to all of it.
First, I’d like to provide a screenshot from a post J4A shared containing the list of Justin-isms; in it was a post that Justin shared somewhere online (my assumption is that this was pulled from his Facebook page, but I’m not sure on that).
To me, the tone in his post is quite telling. Historically in this case, the commentary shared by Justin has literally been a bad choice; we’ve all read the Statement Analysis posts where Peter broke apart his interviews word-for-word, and we all can see pretty clearly that the general opinion of Justin’s stance is that he is 100% deceptive. To what degree, we still do not know. The post on Ayla’s birthday showed me that he just very well MIGHT miss his daughter; and I’m expressing extreme emphasis on “might”. We know Trista does, and we know that Trista’s family does; but when it comes to the DiPietro family, thus far we have reason to assume that Ayla wasn’t as important to them as the rest of their family. (If you’re new here at Justice for Ayla, please read our previous posts ranging from February until now so that you understand our opinions of Justin and his family, and why.)
What I see is Justin posting a message directly to Ayla, whereas in the past, he hadn’t done anything to speak to her (or even her “kidnapper”). On her Birthday, he reached out to his daughter. I see an emphasis on the comment of, “WE WILL”—he is assuring his daughter that they will get her home. (Who are they?) He then stated that he was planting a tree (a peach tree) as a “beacon of hope”…which considering the timeline of events on Justin’s side to date, was rather ironic. You know, since his beacon of hope is literally contrary to what is/has been expected from him. Additionally, it was shared that Justin’s nickname is Peachy; obviously, the peach tree is a comfort zone to him as it reflects his own nickname and is dedicated to his only child that quite literally is his twin.
Could this be genuine emotion Justin is starting to display for Ayla, or do you think the opposite?
After seeing that post from Justin, it threw my mind in several directions of thought process. As a mother, deep in my heart I’d love to believe that Ayla’s father truly did love and care for her, and that he would not intentionally harm her while she was in his care. That being said, I revisited some earlier commentary across the internet where Courtney was addressed. As we know, Courtney Roberts was one of the three adults present the night of Ayla’s alleged abduction, and she is also one of the three that has remained silent MORE than the other two. It makes me wonder: Why is that? Why has Courtney chosen to remain completely silent…or has she?
One of the posts on the Facebook group page contained a link from Statement Analysis again, where he picked apart the now infamous (and now deleted, *surprise, surprise*) story told on Angela Harry’s This Little Light of Maine blog, which was launched almost immediately after Ayla’s reported disappearance. Here is the direct link to the article posted: http://seamusoriley.blogspot.com/2012/01/deception-indicated-ayla-reynolds.
After you’ve read through that analysis (for the first time or as a refresher), I’m curious as to what your thoughts are NOW on Courtney Roberts, if you have yet to form an opinion in her direction thus far. With our emotions all over the place for Ayla and her family, it’s natural to forget about one person versus the other that was assumed to be involved. For me, I admit that my focus was OFF of Courtney this entire time; but now, I can’t get her out of my mind.
ANOTHER THEORY (NOT A FACT):
Re-referencing the Birthday post from Justin, it appeared to me as heartfelt. He wished her a Happy Birthday (which is also directly against what the other blogger shared on their un-Birthday post for Ayla on her special day, if you recall). Justin wished her well on her birthday in his own, “safe space”, which could be due to the fact that at this point in time, his fellow neighbors and peers alike of Waterville are naturally angry with Justin. They are ready for him to start speaking for Ayla. Although the public claims that he should have attended the Birthday vigil, in my opinion I feel that if he DID attend her Vigil, it could have gotten ugly very quickly. Logic tells me that even though there were hundreds in attendance to support Ayla and her maternal family who claimed they would respect Justin for attending, there may have been those select few that would have acted on their own emotions against Justin (et al) had he attended…vigilante justice these days is rather scary. I also want to reiterate my thought on “comfort zones”: He planted her a peach tree on her Birthday, which is very in line with his own nickname of “Peachy”…was this deliberate, to fool the public (myself included), or was this a direct response from his heart that went against what others expected of him (which is historically, NOTHING)?
Could Courtney have had the upper hand here since December of 2011? What we have seen from her is nothing short of selfishness, and a lack of concern for anyone involved but herself. We’ve posted an article regarding Courtney and her Pinterest boards back in March, which contained a screenshot of what her Pinterest profile looked like originally: Not a single mention of Ayla (aka “the one she called her own”), outside of the default image chosen for her account, which is of Ayla and her son. She also was posting wedding ideas, pretty little crafts to do at home, as well as ideas for her son’s upcoming Birthday. Now of course, after our article was published online, she quickly went and changed her profile around; She added a profile description that stated, “Find Ayla!! ♥” and also created a separate board JUST for Ayla’s missing flyers and images…so timely of her. I guess she felt the need to keep up with appearances, huh?
Moving on: Following Angela Harry’s depiction of Courtney being the A+ mother, full-time student working towards her Master’s, superstar girlfriend and caregiver extraordinaire which was shared on TTLOM, it makes me wonder where she got that from! Can you take a guess? If Justin was too emotionally unstable to give an interview, why would he speak to Angela Harry to give a detailed description of his girlfriend, her life, her history with Justin, her current college course, her parenting…the list goes on, really. Why would he do THAT, of all things immediately after his daughter was “kidnapped”? And share this with a person who not only doesn’t live in Waterville, but apparently hadn’t seen him in years. Hmmm. Weird.
Here’s what I want to know: When did Courtney’s college courses for criminal justice begin? Was this before Ayla was conceived, before Trista was established as “the other woman” in Justin’s life (which could have lit the fire of jealousy in Courtney)? It appears that the detailed outline of Courtney Roberts, shared by Angela Harry via Justin DiPietro could have been intentional, so as to additionally paint the opposite picture of Trista: An “alcoholic” mother, without a clue of how to raise a child or co-parent, etc. etc. (You know where that is going.)
Could Courtney have had a stronghold on Justin, just as it appears Justin had on Trista?
It’s been alleged that Justin and Trista didn’t have a relationship and that their hookup was brief (and resulted in Ayla’s conception); yet in recent weeks, what I have read from various commentary of Trista’s in the one-sided text messages published recently, could paint a different picture altogether. Clearly, in the on and off five-year relationship between Courtney and Justin, they both had their side relationships which resulted in the births of two children; that is obvious. It appears that Trista was Justin’s other relationship, and Courtney’s son’s father was her other relationship. Obvious.
In terms of a potential stronghold that Courtney has on Justin, could she have leverage on him for whatever reason? Here are some considerations that could support leverage between them: Pregnancy, drugs, crime(s) committed in their relationship that involves members of their family…the list could go on from here, but you see where I’m going with this. Additionally, if Courtney has any type of leverage here, this could also define the stronghold that Justin has over his immediate family that warranted a fierce loyalty to him, which would have them “cover’ for him to a deeper extent than what one would consider “normal”.
Here’s another question in line with this theory: Could Justin have given his full-on support and trust in Courtney to care for Ayla? This would give Justin the ability to continue his schooling for truck driving, which would in turn progress him in his role to provide for his family (i.e., Courtney and her son), which would support Courtney’s comments referencing how she considered Ayla as her own. What led me to this thought was a comment in an interview recently, where it was stated that after Justin returned home, Phoebe directed Justin’s attention to Ayla’s swollen arm. It was this that apparently brought Justin to address Ayla’s injury and then to text message Trista that him and his mother were taking Ayla to the ER…but, the important part here (which is in line to a degree within this theory) is that it was Phoebe who directed his attention! Why? Because Justin wasn’t home. Granted, Courtney wasn’t there either at this time, but it makes me wonder when the last time Courtney was at the house with Ayla and Justin. And, what we also see there is that Justin reached out to Trista to notify her of her daughter’s impending hospital visit…while Courtney wasn’t around to cause a stink over the communication between the parents. (Again, this is just a theory—nothing further.)
Where is Justin’s timeline that was almost shared with Trista back in January (which was referenced in the one-sided text messages)? Also, who was the adult that took Ayla to Chuck-E-Cheese, which resulted in another injury to Ayla? As we know, once questioned about the injury by Trista, Justin stated that Ayla got into a scuffle with other children in a ball pit, which was later confirmed by Chuck-E-Cheese personnel to be a non-existent ball pit as of 12 years ago. Did Courtney take Ayla for a playdate with Ayden and feed Justin a bunch of bologna about what happened? (I wonder if video could be pulled from Chuck-E-Cheese to prove whether or not Justin was even present at this visit, or if it happened at all.)
It would be rather plausible that Justin believed whatever his girlfriend told him, not needing to dig deeper into it. However, Trista did dig deeper…as a concerned parent, to only learn that it was a lie. I know it makes me wonder; what about you?
My final take-away and further questions regarding this previously unaddressed theory are as follows:
1) Could the reason behind Justin fumbling around his words in interviews, and using poor judgment in what he says [publicly] quite literally be because he is panicked in wanting to cover for his girlfriend, while also attempting to reiterate that he really doesn’t know what happened to Ayla? (i.e., leverage between the two referenced above.)
2) Could Courtney have convinced him that Trista and her family members are to blame, forcing him to believe her word because SHE is the one that set this whole thing up behind-the-scenes? (Which would in turn leave Justin to remain focused solely on Courtney and her son, and their perfect life together portrayed on her Pinterest boards.) It makes me wonder, at the very least.
3) Lastly, this theory somewhat goes hand-in-hand with the text messages received; in them it was referenced that they (Trista and Justin) had come a long way, she hates to see him cry, etc. That wording tells me a more detailed story about whatever time they shared together, if even for just a short while.
There are so many possibilities that could support this theory at this point in time, and considering the lack of new details released by Law Enforcement, we’re really left to go over any and all plausible scenarios at this point in time which support the minimal facts released.
Here are a few screenshots taken from the comments section following my post on the Group page; as promised on the post, I said I would share some of the Commentators’ thoughts in my article that were in line with the subject matter. As a note: I have removed the last names of all those who commented in an effort to maintain a sense of privacy. If anyone whose comments are posted below would like for me to remove them, please let me know and I will gladly do so.
Later today, I will post another article that outlines some other thoughts that have been posted across the blogosphere in the line of psychic and Tarot readings. I know there are many people who don’t believe in that sort of thing, but there are others who do! And, there are some who find any and all sharing insightful when in such an emotional case, nothing else is being shared.
What are your thoughts on this theory, and what do you feel about the thoughts shared today? Remember, J4A reserves the right to remove any and all commentary that we deem inappropriate in context, so please be civil. (As a side note: I don’t care what people’s thoughts on Trista are, what their thoughts are of her past, I really don’t. What I see in all of this is that Trista was consistent with her care for her daughter and both of her children as a whole. So please, do not include Trista and her past in the comments section of this post, or they will be deleted as they are not related to the subject matter herein.)
