As anyone who has followed this case knows, Jessica had Ayla in her physical custody while Trista went to rehab for 10 days. We don't know why Trista chose Jessica to care for Ayla and I haven't asked Trista that nor do I intend to. In my opinion, it doesn't matter. Many have wondered why and asked why Trista would allow Jessica, who reportedly has lost her own children to DHHS, to care for Ayla in Trista's absence, especially since it was the fight between Jessica and Trista that prompted DHHS to become involved in the first place and step in.
In my opinion, I think that it is likely that Trista chose Jessica to care for Ayla because Trista lived with Jessica before she went to rehab so it makes sense that she wanted to Ayla to be as comfortable as possible in her absence. If Ayla was used to Jessica's home and had some sort of routine there, maybe Trista was hoping that if Jessica followed that routine with Ayla even though Trista was not there, Ayla would adjust a little better to her mother being gone. I have gleaned from media reports that Becca, Trista and Jessica's mother, was also reported as having Ayla left in her care so I am assuming that Becca was also asked to stay with Jessica for those ten days to care for Ayla and to make sure Jessica was taking proper care of Ayla. Maybe Trista requested this of Becca because she was unsure of her decision of leaving Ayla with Jessica alone.
Trista Reynolds told The Associated Press that she and DiPietro never lived together as a couple and that he showed little interest in his daughter in the 18 months Ayla spent with her mother. But Reynolds said a drinking problem prompted her to enter rehabilitation in Lewiston for 10 days in October; she said that although her mother and older sister cared for Ayla during that time, child welfare agents intervened to place the girl with DiPietro.
As far as what is floating around the internet, that statement sounds much different than Lewiston PD only called DHHS to verify if Justin was legally able to take Ayla. It sounded like DHHS was giving Justin to permission to take Ayla from Trista. How can DHHS authorize the removal of one child and not the other?
Getting back on the topic of Jessica kidnapping Ayla... In order for this to have happened, Jessica would have had to stay clean long enough to plan the kidnapping and to do the actual kidnapping. She would have had to sneak into the house in the middle of the night and not leave one piece of evidence, not one hair off of her head. She had to do it without anyone hearing her creak on the floor and without bumping into anything especially since it would be an unfamiliar house to Jessica. Unlikely right?
reported that Jessica and Trista were living together in the Maine Motel in South Portland at the time of Ayla's disappearance. Apparently Jessica moved out of her Lewiston apartment BEFORE Ayla went missing. Since Jessica was also living in a motel, she apparently did not have anywhere else to go so where did she go with Ayla? It seems that since Jessica is struggling with substance abuse herself, she is having a hard enough time being responsible for herself so how could she be expected to take care of herself as well as Ayla and while doing this, thwart LE for over 4 months? Jessica was also arrested on 2/19/12, if Jessica had Ayla, how come police did not find her then? Where was Ayla when Jessica was arrested? Who was caring for her then? Who else is aware of Jessica's superhero powers of kidnapping? How come no one has come forward and told LE the truth? How have these people managed to trick LE for this long and not drawn any suspicion on themselves?
If for some reason Jessica was able to do all of this, what about the blood? What about the Life Insurance Policy? What about the lies told by Justin and his family? Why is Justin acting like he is guilty of something if in fact he is innocent and Jessica is to blame?
The rumors started because Jessica has not made any media appearances recently nor did she attend Ayla's birthday vigil. I can only speculate that Jessica likely is upset that she allowed Justin to take Ayla on her watch and maybe the guilt she felt pushed her back into using. Jessica most likely is not appearing in interviews because she has gone back to abusing her substance of choice. It is doubtful she is hiding for the reasons that have been rumored but more likely that she has withdrawn from the public's eye in order to get high in private. This are only speculations and not meant to bash anyone or to hurt anyone's feelings.
