I have been wondering if poor Ayla Reynolds will ever be found. I have come to grips that she is most likely deceased and hidden someplace very well; I've even thought to myself that they've most likely transferred her to another location by now. One can only handle so many sick thoughts about child murder in a day, and it is devastating to watch all of this play out, unfolding like the pages of a poorly-scripted movie. I just can't mentally let this case go; my mind has been racing non-stop!
With all of the buzz from LE about the "items" found in the sluiceway, and then recovering more last week, it just doesn't settle right with me. One thought that came to mind was, “why would LE even toss Ayla’s name into a news article about these items and then release it again that they "may" have found something related to the first items?” IMO, they should have drained that sluice in their first dive attempts in the Kennebec; it could have played a vital part earlier on. Do I think she was put in the river? NO; but, I do think that there may have been incriminating evidence dumped there.
I am hoping with all of this "new" evidence in play, they can link something for an arrest or at least respond to further questioning by the public. I think they need to start thinking and making decisions on who they should question first; I know for a fact if LE got something and they brought Elisha in for questioning and started threatening to remove her child, she would start flipping the dime on the rest of her cohorts!
Something needs to be done; this has gone on too long, and I'm just waiting to hear that someone has been taken in and is being questioned. LE has been way too tight-lipped and it appears they have motive behind what they release to the public. They haven't discredited any of Trista's claims for a reason and that’s simply because, in my opinion, Trista is being honest.
I think given the fact that Justin was cheating on Courtney with Trista, Courtney should be infuriated, especially with the added pressure of LE breathing down her neck so she will speak. Maybe what LE needs to do is start taking away their children. LE is so sure that the people in the home that night are lying to them; they need to step it up!
In the words of Justin, "When the time is right"; but, when will the time be right to make arrests, present the evidence to a grand jury, or at the very least bring them back in for questioning?
I don't think LE is done processing the pieces of evidence they have been collecting. I also think that LE got more tight-lipped and stopped talking about the case because of the threats made to the DiPietro's and also the vandalism. Believe me; I'm sure that LE would love to see them fry but they can't have our citizens who feel for Ayla lashing out at the DiPs every time they release something to the media.
Media is our outlet; we rely on the media to give us new details and that’s something that hasn't really been happening here. A lot of media outlets do smear the facts just a bit, but most of our local news stations like WMTW are fairly accurate in their fact giving.
I don't like the silence from LE but obviously they're being quiet for a reason; the reason for their silence in the media would be? I believe they are beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle together and are preparing to present the evidence to a grand jury. If the evidence is enough, they will be able to make an arrest without a body. I think the reason they have waited so long to do this is because LE wanted to wait to determine if Ayla was in fact alive somewhere; they wouldn't want to say she was deceased without the proper evidence pointing to anything different. Sadly, I think that even LE has given up hope that she is alive.
It's very disturbing to me that there hasn't been a discovery made in this case for any crucial pieces of evidence; or has there been? We all wonder what the items are that they have found in the river. We may never know what the items were and if indeed they are/were related. I hope that whatever the items are, that they are the pieces of the puzzle that LE needs to start making the proper arrests.
