I was reading the comments and saw "Chicago" mention Juliette Geurts and explained a little about her case, which in my opinion mirrored some of the same feelings I have on the direction Ayla's case has taken. I did a Google search and have spent most of the afternoon reading up on this precious little angel and my heart hurts.

I have worried many times that Ayla will never get justice, that the three people in the house that night will never talk and that if Ayla is not found, LE will not move forward with any arrests in this case. Juliette's case brought those fears to the forefront again because there was a body in her case and almost four years later, the three that were in the home the night Juliette was beaten to death still have not been brought to justice. They are off living their lives as though nothing has ever happened. I worry that the press conferences from Stephen McCausland are filled with remarks made because they just have no answers. I worry that this investigation has stalled. I worry that the reason they have not released any more information on the case is because they have none. I worry that Ayla will not get the justice she deserves.
Juliette's paternal family are fighting daily for justice. Juliette's twin sister doesn't get to share that special bond that only twins can. They have not given up hope and are truly doing everything they can so Juliette's sister, Jaelyn, will be able to look back and know they tried. Trista and the rest of Ayla's maternal family have been doing everything in their power to get justice for Ayla and Ayla's little brother, Baby Ray, will also be able to look back and see all his mommy and maternal family did to bring his sister home.
It has been speculated over and over in Ayla's case how unlikely it is that the three people in the home that night would all keep this secret for this long. In Juliette's case, the three people that are keeping secrets are not even related to each other! Juliette's mother, Charyse Geurts, her boyfriend at the time but not any longer, Dustin Chauncey, and Dustin's friend (and rumored ex boyfriend of Charyse), Brandon Townsend, have all went their own separate ways years ago so if it was so hard to keep a secret, why haven't any of these three made a deal with the D.A.?
Justin and Elisha DiPietro are tied together for the rest of their lives since they are brother and sister, it seems likely that neither of them are going to turn on the other and Courtney apparently is either too stupid to talk because she is in love with Justin or really doesn't know what happened to Ayla. Five months have passed and still no arrests have been made, LE has not publicly announced any suspect or suspects. We all sit and wonder why? Many have speculated that LE wants a solid case since the Casey Anthony debacle and are looking for Ayla's body but after reading about Juliette's case, I don't think that will be enough. Juliette's body was recovered and LE still were not able to put together a strong enough case for an arrest, EVEN WITH PROOF OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT, because they could not tell which one of the three in the home that night killed Juliette.

There was evidence of abuse in the case of Juliette Geurts that was never followed up on by C.P.S.. Juliette, just like Ayla, suffered unexplained injuries at the hands of those she was living with. Juliette was taken to the emergency room only a few weeks before she went missing needing stitches on her head. Ayla was taken to the emergency room only a few weeks before she went missing with a broken arm. It makes you wonder if the Dept. of Health and Human Services were doing their jobs maybe these two children would still be here with us today. It also makes you wonder why LE has not went ahead and filed abuse or neglect charges in either case in an attempt to get someone to talk and pinpoint the person responsible in Ayla's disappearance and in Juliette's murder.
Another disturbing similarity in the two cases is Charyse's refusal to talk. If Charyse was truly innocent why not plead with the other two in the home that night to come forward and tell the truth? Why not join the fight for justice for her daughter? Why not cooperate fully with LE? Why aren't those who were present the night Ayla disappeared cooperating with LE? Why are they not doing everything in their power to get Ayla home?
Juliette's family is upset that LE in their case did not follow proper protocol by securing warrants correctly the first time for the house and not sealing the house up immediately. They also have accused LE of failing to interrogate those involved immediately and instead waited, giving those involved time to perfect the story they were going to tell LE. I am not suggesting that is the case here. I think the Waterville PD did secure the house as they should have, they also interviewed both families right away and called in other agencies to assist them immediately.
There are a lot of differences in Juliette's case compared to Ayla's case but the most disturbing similarity is the fact that three people in the home in both cases have not talked and because of that LE cannot prove who committed the actual crime so in turn all three in each case are getting away with it. I can only hope that the reason Juliette's case has not been officially closed is because LE did botch the investigation and that is not the case in Ayla's disappearance and that LE will close this one and Ayla will be brought home and those responsible brought to justice.
Oddly enough, another similarity in the two cases is that the parties involved in Ayla's case and in Juliette's case have a penchant for beating people with baseball bats.
Less than a month before Juliette's murder mommy & her boyfriend were involved in an assault on a
man with a baseball bat where her boyfriend eventually went to prison for this crime and the man he
beat with the baseball bat eventually murdered another man. These were the types of individuals that
mommy had her two year old twin's exposed to. If the police had arrested them when the assault
occurred then maybe DFS would have gotten involved to protect my nieces before Juliette could have been beaten to death less than a month later. So many issues with this whole case.
I went in for my appt Monday and the test results came back good. The cancer has NOT spread and is confined to my cervix for the time being. I will be going in for surgery on the 30th and will only be in the hospital for a day or two and then will be able to come home to recuperate. I appreciate all the well wishes and the prayers, Thank you all for expressing concern for me. It was truly heartwarming. I am blessed to have such wonderful, faithful readers here who all want Justice for Ayla.
