Addressing Another Theory

Some of you may recall my post on the Facebook group page where I requested some feedback from the readers; my intent is to engage all of you as best as possible, so that you all know that we truly value your thoughts and opinions at J4A. This post will go over another theory to consider in this case, as well as opinions referenced in previous blog posts here, and also some thoughts shared on the group page. I hope that we are now able to move passed the “blog wars” and get back to the discussion that brought us all together in the first place: Ayla. There was a reason for the posts yesterday, and we will leave it at that.

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.)

    I think the birthday message was another farce. He changes from I to WE a couple times. Why the change? I would question whether buying the tree was his idea and whether he paid for it himself. It doesn't sound like the type of idea that Justin would concoct on his own. It's more sentimental from a female perspective. Maybe Angela or HeiTud came up with the idea for him. Heidi may have coughed up the dough from her mansion. In any event, Justin planted the tree to try to make himself look good. Doesn't he realize once he gets arrested that Nancy Grace will be slamming him for this garbage?

I understand she tries to keep up with each new case, but I wish she would follow up here and there and not just completely drop talking about a case, until arrests are made. She could maybe spare a little time here and there, even if not a whole entire show. JMO

    8. Saying happy birthday is one thing but even if he did plant a tree why publicise it? When I give a gift, I don't flaunt it and especially with the sensitivity involved I would think this gift should be a private matter for him. So why advertise it? Selfish reasons.

  4. It has always struck me as odd that we have never heard from Courtney at ALL. Law enforcement called her out also when they called out Justin and Elisha for stopping communication. While Justin, Phoebe and Elisha had an interview to counter that claim, Courtney was missing. She didn't feel the need to defend herself and it seems like she is trying to avoid the least amount of attention to herself. She also does things to make the public "happy". Someone made a comment about her changing her Facebook profile picture from Ayla to a picture of her and Justin and soon after that comment her picture was changed back to Ayla. You already mentioned her adding Ayla to her Pinterest after it was brought to her attention. Why does she feel the need to appease us? None of the DiPietro's do. She can call Ayla her own but she hides from the public more than Justin does.

    1. T4A,

      My thoughts are that she is trying to remain low profile and hope that everyone forgets. LE has not forgotten and they will arrest her when the rest of the evidence is gathered and processed. Not to be morbid, but if CR and EP's children could spend years total in that house wothout evidence of injury, how is it possible Ayla recieved so many injuries in 50 days? This tells me logically that JD was not the only abuser in that house. The abuse will be the low charge filed, the highest charge is yet to be seen!

    2. The Bride Wears BLOOD RedApril 10, 2012 at 1:14 PM

      That is so sad John P. 50 days in the house of horrors and sweet Ayla was abused regularly. How is it the other 2 managed to come out unscathed? Fishy.

      Delete
    3. I wonder myself how those other two baby's haven't had anything happen to them yet poor Ayla ... bruises, broken bones, hurt, pain, suffering it makes me sad to think that someone in that house was either (a) jealus of Ayla and was not good to her or (b) just an overall SHITTY parent or (c) all of the above. None of us knows for sure what Ayla went through, it is hard for me to imagine that ANYONE could be so calice but people are. In my opinion I definately think Courtney is involved in this to some extent if nothing more than knowing what happened to Ayla she is still involved. Maybe that's the reason to pump herself up as the good one because maybe she idn't do anything and does not want the attention on her. Just a thought though, we won't know for sure until LE does there thing ... hopefully soon, I'd love to see an arrest or many arrests, something.

    4. ITA Tammy,

      I look forward to many arrests 6 at a minimum. That will allow the evidence to be heard at trial and we will know why so much of Aylas blood was spilled in such a short period of time

    5. Im with you John P, I'll be here waiting with you, and I will be here celebrating with you the day justice is searved. I will also be right here with you when we find out why so much blood was spilt ... Patience is a virtue that I have yet to master, but I will in due time :)

    6. IMO- the other children in that house may be abused but poor Ayla, not being use to it and use to all the attention that her mom gave her, did not know better to keep to herself and not "bother" the parents. OR if little Ayla was the only one abused- you have to look at the one that was "incharge" of her care.. Justin. Although, IMO also- If two people were "sleeping" in the basement where Ayla's blood was found then both TWO people are to blame. No matter what, IMO, Courtney is not innocent. I believe that she either caused Ayla's injuries, but if not, I believe that she knows and witnessed who did. After hearing that she laughed at Trista, I am even more convinced.

      Delete
  5. Where was the tree planted "on a partially wooded hilltop with sweeping views of the Kennebec River valley"? He didn't even mention Ayla's name. I just don't know how Courtney & Elisha could risk not seeing their children grow up. Everyone is linked to Justin: son, brother, boyfriend. But I would never protect someone & risk not having my child unless I was involved too. It's late but not too late for one of them to step forward & tell what really happened. (although I believe the investigators know a lot more than we can even imagine) I seriously can't see how any of them can sleep at night, never mind get through a day. The guilt & knowledge would destroy me. How can you live, plan, enjoy life always looking over your shoulder? It may not be today or tomorrow but some day the truth will come out and I would not want to be any of them when it does.

  6. JMH,
    Still reading the whole article but I wanted to post on your statement below first:

    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)?

    On her birthday, a poster from the other blog stated on this site that the tree was planted by another member of thier site. Then retracted saying that the tree was the daughter of the other member, then retracted that saying the picture was someone elses tree. I don't even know now if he did plant a tree, if he did was it even a peach tree, etc. Because of this and past performances/comments by him, I believe this was one of two things:
    1. His handler/lawyer posting for him
    2. A fabrication/forced entry made by JD to win public support
    Either way, I do not feel it was truely a heartfelt emotional birthday wish to Ayla. JMO for those reasons.

      You're right John P, the fact it is a peach tree must be based on his nickname. Again, I don't see this as an idea Justin came up with himself. No way. It has even crossed my mind that he didn't dig the hole to plant the tree himself. I believe it that someone else planted it for Justin. This is another ploy and a bad PR stunt.

      Delete
    3. I was just about to post the same, JohnP!
      I'm really confused...HAS the "peach tree" FB posting been sorted out??

      If NOT...I'd chalk it up to someone trying to take opportune credit on BEHALF of Justin, for planting a tree, in an effort to make him "look good" on Ayla's Birthday.
      I think someone recognized the posted photo, and QUESTIONED it.
      This lead to some attempts to back-pedal out of the "Justin's Tree" lie, and trying to reframe "what was meant" in their post.

      I agree with JMH:
      CR's hatred of Trista played a BIG part in this child-abuse atrocity.
      I DO NOT think, however, that Courtney played the BIGGEST role in what happened.
      Perhaps Justin and Courtney share EQUALLY in blame, though?

      I see Courtney more as "the force behind the scenes"...a director of sorts:
      Encouraging escalation of Justin's abuse of Ayla, encouraging the plot to murder her for money, etc...with JUSTIN actually being the one to carry out the dirty work.

      This is NOT to say Courtney NEVER laid a hand on Ayla, because I'm sure she DID... I doubt the MAJOR instances of abuse, such as the broken arm and spilled blood were the result of her direct actions, though.

    5. And even if there was a tree planted for Ayla. Aren't trees planted as memorials for people that have past. Ayla's Birthday vigil was like a birthday party where the main guest wasn't there yet. I find this ironic considering many Dip supporters get upset and state the Reyonolds family are trying to convince the public Ayla has past. I think complete contrast of these two events say the opposite. Also if this "tree planting" did occur I find it incredibly NARCASSISTIC to pick a tree that relects your own nickname. It was also mentions that a tree that does not thrive here in Maine climate. Why not a lilac tree/bush: grows like crazy here and also one of Ayla's favorite colors. I agree John an attempt to win support and not authentic, I don't believe he wrote the statement. "Beacon of Hope" I don't believe these are his words. Remember when asked by Matt Lauer on the Today show what he missed the most of his daughter: he fumbled and said "Uhhh, cause she is my daughter" Those are his words: Ayla was property, a possesion of HIS, that is what he missed about her (a narcissistic reflection)

    6. Uuggghhhh,
      DiPshit's responses to Matt Lauer in that Today Show interview REALLY INFURIATE me!!

      How can a father---even a CRAPPY one---fail in being able to name ANY personality traits, or unique qualities, that make his daughter SPECIAL?

      REALLY?!?!?
      He couldn't even come up with
      O N E
      THING
      to say about
      A Y L A.

      That one Matt Lauer interview question posed of Justin---and his ABYSSMAL response to it---pretty much sums up Justin DiPietro's entire persona.

      You can tell by the expression on his face, and all the stammering that Justin is SO wrapped up in HIMSELF, that he is completely stunned and taken-aback, by Lauer's question.

      As if, the very IDEA that Ayla HAD "special qualities" of her own, never once crossed his mind before that moment!

    7. Annie & VT- I agree 100% with the both of you. I think someone gave JUSTIN the tree, someone that related the peach to HIM! The comment about planting it for Ayla is bull!

  8. He COULD actually miss Ayla. It doesn't mean he's not guilty of whatever has come of her. I'm not fully buying missing her, for his reason for planting a peach tree for her, on her Birthday though. IF he even planted it, and IF it was his tree/in his yard (wherever that might be).

    Anyway, I do think people can do horrible, unforgivable things, and regret it later on. He might be missing her, he might be regretting whatever happened, or he might not care one little tiny bit and just be trying to appear like an honest, innocent father of a true missing baby. All events/statements/interviews point to the latter, thus far though...

    I think any guilt he is feeling, is probably guilt of possibly not committing the "perfect crime". If he had any feeling toward Ayla, this would have been ended a long time ago. He would have manned up/fathered up for his daughter and not have let this continue on for so long.

    2. I respect your desire to imagine that EVERY human being has the capacity to love, feel remorse, empathize with others, etc...

      But, I really think what we are seeing here
      is a display of
      JUSTIN feeling sorry for JUSTIN.

      Justin may REGRET having "ended up in HIS SITUATION" and/or "the nightmare HIS LIFE has become"...

      But, IMHO, we should NOT confused this with
      true REMORSE for his actions, or EVEN a real "sense of LOSS" over Ayla's absence.

      Justin DiPietro has shown not one IOTA of concern about his daughter.
      No concern that she might have been in *severe pain* from her severely injured left arm.

      No concern that she suffered a severe injury causing her blood to be spilled, next to his bed.

      No concern for what she "might be enduring" or "how scared she might be" in the hands of her supposed "abductors".

      Sorry, but I feel like you are guys are projecting 'normal human emotions' onto this man, who has NOT shown himself capable of such.

      You are trying to imagine how YOU would feel had YOU done what he did:
      Guilt. Remorse. Self-disgust/shame. Sorrow/Grief.
      YOU'D be heartbroken to see Trista suffering and know you caused her pain.
      YOU'D be inconsolable over the loss of AYLA, whom you are sure you'd miss greatly, and is now gone forever.
      YOU'D be guilt-racked by the knowledge that you are responsible for robbing AYLA of her chance to grow-up, and live her life.

      The thing is, what you are doing falls under the category of "empathizing".
      Empathizing is something sociopaths, psychopaths and other *broken* humans like JDiP are simply not CAPABLE of.

    3. That's true VTLady. I think it's hard to wrap your brain around someone having no concern whatsoever for their own baby. I have to remind myself that people ARE capable of doing horrible, unthinkable things to their children. It often surprises me, I don't know why. It's something hard to get used to. :(

  9. Possibly the amount of contact between Justin and Trista really bothered her... perhaps she questioned any amount of kindness Justin showed to Trista... maybe she didn't want them to ever have a reason to speak again. If Ayla was hurt, was it deliberate or accidental? Was it planned or spontaneous? Is it possible the Dipietros believe Ayla was kidnapped that night Courtney was there, but that it was Courtney who removed her from the house without them being aware? The neighbors said they heard a car, Courtney's was behind Justin's. It seems more believable that one person could/would lie vs. many.

  10. Tree's are and can be planted to honor many things besides a memorial.
    My husband and I planted a tree in honor of our 20th anniversary.
    We planted a beautiful Magnolia to honor the birth of our daughter.
    I don't know if Justin planted a tree or what kind it may have been, but to say that trees are usualy planted as memorials to those who have past is certainly not true.

    1. However, planting a tree n not addressing the kidnapper seems a little morbid to me.

    2. That's true heartbroken. To anyone with children, if you truly thought the child's other parent came in your home at night and "stole" your baby, would you not be shouting it from the rooftops? Telling EVERY media outlet that would listen? Has HE, himself even ever stated, anywhere, that HE thinos that? I wonder if he put that idea in peoples heads (TTLOM, JSTL, etc.), or if THEY put the idea in his head? Has he encoutaged the attacks on Trista and her family, or just sat back and allowed it? It is crystal clear that she wanted to work together with him, to find Ayla, but he had no intention of working with her. Why would that be? Probably the same reason he stopped work with LRC.

    3. Hey Kit I said before that I think Courtney may be the puppet master, with what you just explained I believe that theory more now. He is doing everything he is TOLD to do. He wouldn't have a damn clue what to say or do if someone wasn't telling him, turdella blew up in his face because she can't write shit lol angela harry is a moron and who's that leave with any sort of education ... Courtney.

      Delete
    4. Kit--well said! My sentiments exactly.

      Delete
    5. Yes, I tend to flip flop back and forth as to who the puppet master is. It's really hard to figure out. I can see reasons why it could be Justin, reasons why it could be Courtney, even Phoebe.

      It's true he comes off as a dummy. I think he's pretty well educated in street smarts though. Such as, ALWAYS using his defense of not seeing, hearing, knowing anything, not getting out when Lance beat JL, never (as far as I know) getting into legal trouble. So between his street smarts and CR supposed book smarts, I think they really think/thought they had/have this all worked out TOGETHER. I'm soooo curious as to who's idea the "kidnapping" was though.

    6. Me too Kit, who's idea was it to say Ayla was kidnapped? Boy that one is probably going to be the real shocker of this whole mess. I agree with you after thinking this through it could be any of the above referenced three ... Elisha's too dumb to be the lead, but she could have done something to Ayla and Pheobe could be the protector. Too many scenarios ... I hope the truth comes out.

      Delete
    7. Tammy, Not to cloud the matter even more but a fourth possibility, you all have stated your very well, but another is Phoebe lost control, hurt Ayla and directed the cover-up. This is based on a logical assumption that most people try to distance themselves from the crime. Who was the only one of the 4 that tried to lie about not being there the night in question. That is if you believe the harm occurred on that night which I do not.

      Delete
    8. I have thought that too John P, and anything is likely given the fact she is the mother and the "leader" of that family. You may be onto something.

      Delete
    9. Yes, me too. I've even thought of that possibility with Elisha. There are so many what if's, especially with there being so many people involved.

      Delete
    10. One of the people there, out of four, inflicted the harm. The other three are accomplices. Lance became an accomplice when he found out and did nothing but give Justin a black eye. That person in Texas then hindered prosecution by doing the dirty deed on behalf of the DiPs. That I think will be the first 6 people charged.

  11. I want to say that Peter did an amazing job analizing that "story" from TLLOM. My thought is that it was definately wrote by a woman. My next thought is why would anyone try to make Courtney into some kind of marter? Whats the purpose? My only thought there is to protect her. But why does she need protecting. I believe that Courtney may not have been involved with Ayla's disappearance, but because of the relationship she gets to be the puppet master. There is something keeping her with JD and keeping JD with her. I have an ex husband and if something happened to one of my children I couldn't imagine NOT showing support for each other. From day one we have seen none of that. Justin hasn't gone near Trista ... why? In the beginning I would have expected to see them supporting each other. I think there is still a threat there somewhere to why nobodys talking yet. I am not sure what is keeping them all quiet though ... Anyone would have thought in the beginning that we'd have known who did what by now and where Ayla is. I have to say they are all involved to some degree, just curious "who's wearing the pants" in that house.

    1. What house? ;)

      I think what's keeping them together is their guilt or at the very least knowledge of what really happened to Ayla. She was there, at 29 Violette Ave on Dec. 16-17. Therefore, I think she either knows exactly what happened that night to Ayla, but more than likely she knows what happened on a previous day/night, whether she was directly involved or not. I don't think she's just "standing by her man", nor do I think she's stupid enough to really not know anything AND think he's innocent.

      They don't need to plan a wedding, unless they want to make it official. They are already "married", until death do them part. OR, anger, jealousy, arrests etc.

    2. :) HI KIT! Love reading your stuff too!!! I agree 100% I would just like to know what the bond is??? Is it the abuse of Ayla, the murder of Ayla? The "kidnapping" just what is that bond and how does one break it. If she were any kind of mother she'd spill what happened to Ayla. I just have a hard time understanding that bond ... it'll come to an end I think, Because she shows a jealus side ... something has to happen soon.

      Delete
    3. The bond is probably all of the above, and then some. Maybe things we don't even know about yet. I think the bond will only get broken if and/or when one turns on the other. I thought it would be CR, but the more I think about it, I think it will be Justin. I think Courtney is more disposable to him than he is to her. Why? I don't know. I think he probably has her talked into completely trusting him, trusting that he knows what he's doing, that she won't get in trouble etc. I think she will not turn on him, UNLESS it puts her son in danger of being taken away from her. He has probably assured her that she is safe, her son is safe. I think they are feeding off of each other, but I can't see that lasting forever. She has waited too long, to remain hopeful that her son won't be taken and she won't go to prison (I think).

      I think she has a def jealous side as well. I can't even imagine that she knew that Trista and Justin were texting back and forth as often as they were. I think even the release of those messages may have caused problems (if they are even fully true).

      Delete
    4. I think you are right on with the texts, she had to have been pist. I think that she is staying wuiet so as to not incriminate herself or anyone else. She gives the impression that she is smarter than the rest, with the exception of the above Statement Analysis if she is the one that wrote that post (essay) whoever did that is a very SELFISH person. I think it is going to LE really putting the pressure on to break the bond though.

      Delete
  12. Does anyone from the area know if there have been any searches going on? I'm sure LE is working full force in their investigation, I'm sure it is a lot of work for them and probably draining and emotional, but there hasn't really been any public news regarding the investigation/searches (which is fine, LE is not obligated to release all their efforts publicly). I'm just wondering if there are things going on locally, that the rest of the public are not aware of? Is there still snow/ice up there?

  15. Where did some get the impression that Justin and Courtney had a five-year relationship? Reading Courtney's posts on a single-moms site, I never got the impression that she was in any kind of a relationship with anyone other than the guy who impregnated her.

    Did she even know Justin while she was pregnant with her son? Courtney's son was born in August of 2009. At that time she was debating on whether to take her baby's sperm donor back into her life, but said she decided against that because he had gotten another woman pregnant, also, and that he then had three children by three different women.

    Besides he had dumped her as soon as she told him she was pregnant, and his efforts to get back into her life were half-hearted to say the least. An unreliable POS she made him out to be.

    I guess I just don't see the facts which tell us that Courney and JD had a "long-term" relationship. Where does that come from but Angela Harry? And we know she gets everything wrong.

    1. I believe that was put out by AH, possibly in one of her original fairy tale stories on TTLOM website, IF I am remembering correctly. Maybe someone else can remember with more certainty.

    2. Kit, I am betting Courtney hooked up with Justin sometime after her baby was born. Even after he was born, she was pondering in posts on the baby blog whether she would ever find anyone to "love me and my baby". Justin certainly doesn't appear to be on her landscape in August 2009 or why would she be so concerned about finding someone?

      I think the "long-term" relationship blather was deemed important to put out there for our consumption. Somehow "they" thought it would prove Justin was in a more palatable and stable condition with Courtney than he ever had been with Trista -- who was basically, according to most of the DiPietros and Co., merely a one-night stand whose contamination of poor Justin had caused the accidental advent of Ayla.

      A "long term relationship" also give a patina of benevolence and joint concern around both Justin (who had heroically taken Ayla away from an alleged unsafe environment)and Courtney (wonder woman who considered Ayla "my own").

      Such do-gooders in a "committed" partnership would hardly be responsible for Ayla being abused or going "missing"!

      Delete
    3. I agree. I think it was also put out, to try to make Trista look bad. For what? Having a "one night stand"? That may not be my choice of lifestyle, or yours or lots of peoples, but, realistically, it happens all the time. Trista is an adult. She's a big girl. IF that was her choice, then that's her right to choose. How in God's name would that make HER look bad, but NOT Justin, who was suppose to be in a "long term relationship"? It's actually laughable that they even tried that. It actually makes HIM look worse. Because now, we can add onto his list of characteristics, CHEATER! Backfire, once again Dip Camp!

      That being said... I don't think they only had a one night stand. I've voiced this before too. Trista has said that they were friends and they used to talk/get along (paraphrasing). I think there MAY have even been more devious reasons for this "one night stand" fairy tale. Possibly this is what Justin told Courtney. I think he might have even lied about knowing about Ayla to (at least) Courtney. I think he hoped he never had to "bother" with Ayla and that she would just "go away". This was working well for him, until Trista/The State wanted child support. THEN, he needed a paternity test. I think he had people pushing him into a fatherly role, that he really wanted no part of. THEN when Trista went to rehab/detox he saw an opportunity for SOMETHING, although not to be a Daddy, sadly. He was pushed, prodded and coached (to begin with, idk what exactly he truly followed through for - money, to hurt Trista, not to look like a dead-beat, control?).

    4. Courtney is not a happy camper finding out that Justin was not loyal to her. Going out to bars alone may not be the greatest choice for Justin being in a relationship.
