The Interview With Chelsea Hoffman

Before all the drama unfolded the other day, Chelsea Hoffman published an interview with Trista Reynolds. I know most of you have read it and if you have not you can find it HERE.

I know feelings about Chelsea Hoffman are mixed and many readers here do not like what she is about. I do not follow her, I have all that I can do to follow the insanity that surrounds this blog but I did read this article and something really stuck out to me. 

She was told by police that Justin DiPietro had barricaded himself in the bathroom of his home on the morning that he reported baby Ayla missing.

I was really surprised to hear this information and more surprised that there has not been more discussion about this. Why would Justin barricade himself in the bathroom when LE came to investigate Ayla's disappearance? Why would Justin hang up more than once when on the line with 911? I am sure someone who views Justin as the innocent victim will say because he was so distraught, he privately went into the bathroom to cry. 

Based on the release of the information about the Grand Jury meeting in February and based on the info that LE believe that Ayla is no longer alive, and now this information about Justin barricading himself in the bathroom, I have my own thoughts about what possibly may have happened the night Ayla was supposedly taken and what transpired shortly afterward.

It has been said more than once in comments here that Courtney Roberts did not arrive at the DiPietro home until after 8:30pm on the night of December 16th. There also have been reports that Courtney never saw Ayla that night because Ayla was already in bed. I have gone back and forth about whether or not what happened to Ayla happened that night or prior to that night. I tend to believe it happened earlier in the day or possibly even a day or two before. I think Justin found out that Trista had filed for PR&R and he knew that he was running out of time to report Ayla missing. I think he asked Courtney to spend the weekend and asked her to come later, hoping she would lie to police and say she saw Ayla that night, even if she never really did because he was counting on her trusting him when he told her that Ayla was in her bed that night. 

In the morning, when Ayla was found to be "missing", Justin called 911. He wasn't anticipating the questions they would ask and was starting to second guess Courtney's loyalty to him. He hung up the phone to avoid answering questions that he did not have an answer to right off the top of his head. By hanging up and making them call back, he bought himself time to think of an answer. The wildcard was always Courtney. Maybe she did not know what had really happened to Ayla. When LE got to the house, Justin pretended to be so distraught he had to barricade himself in the bathroom, but what he was really doing was protecting himself so that LE could not see what a horrible liar he was and see right through him. Unfortunately for Justin, it didn't work. LE apparently did see right through him and focused their efforts on finding out what REALLY happened to Ayla. 

I believe Justin also stayed out of the limelight and avoided media as well because he knew he was a terrible liar and any time he talked, the more likely he would slip up. As time went on, and he wasn't arrested, he got more cocky in his mannerisms even calling out LE on their incompetency, not because they were focusing on him and he was innocent, but because they hadn't arrested him yet even after finding the blood. I don't think Justin ever anticipated LE would use luminal in the basement. Whoops Justin, that may have been your fatal mistake. 

I think LE knew all along that Courtney was the weak link. I think they got information that Brianna was selling drugs out of the house that Courtney shared with Brianna. Is it a coincidence that this happened shortly before the Grand Jury convened? You know how I feel about coincidences...

Courtney was told that she was also going to be charged with the drugs in the house, LE had no way of knowing who the owner of the drugs were, Courtney obviously knew that Brianna was dealing so was guilty in that regard. LE told Courtney they would not charge her if she came clean about what she knew about Ayla's case. If she refused, her Criminal Justice career would be over before it started and she would no longer be eligible for any financial aid to change her major because of a criminal record. A drug charge would be devastating to Courtney and her future. Why wouldn't Courtney talk to save herself and her son? Especially if she didn't really know what happened except that Justin asked her to lie and say she saw Ayla that night, even though she never really did. 

LE may have thought that Courtney's admission along with other evidence collected was going to be enough to bring down an indictment against Justin for Murder but the GJ was not convinced at the time there was enough evidence so they did not come back with a "True Bill" finding and told LE to get more evidence and try again.  

Justin is now even more cocky. He thinks he is going to walk. I am confident he is not going to walk and he better enjoy the few weeks left he has of freedom. The Press Conference was what convinced me when they announced the expiration of the reward money. They have collected more evidence, enough evidence to publicly say they feel Ayla is no longer alive. I believe that they are giving someone the chance to come forward and lead them to Ayla and walk away with the $30,000 or even one of the people involved to fess up and possibly escape charges but their time is running out. The Grand Jury meets again June 20-22. I think that if this person does not come forward by the 20th of June, LE is going to take this to the Grand Jury again and I think they have enough to make it stick this time even without a body, although I am sure they would feel more confident with one. Justin's time is running out. 

I know that things have been crazy around here lately. I can only hope that we can all just ignore the drama and those who do not truly want Justice for Ayla and focus on Ayla. I have tried everything from reasoning with these people to fighting fire with fire and the results are the same. They choose to focus more on me and less on Ayla. I am not a celebrity, I am not a hero, I am not any different than any of you. I just may have the ability to view things in a unique perspective and articulate it into blog posts that are capable of being read and understood and currently have the time to do it. I never expected that people would make their sole mission to cause me pain and to obsess over what I say and what I do but this is not the first high profile case where the crazies have come out of the woodwork. What I do know is that because you all are interested in me, they think if they talk about me, you will give them the audience they crave. If you don't give them an audience, they will get tired and move on, maybe go back to playing World Of WarCraft or whatever it is called. I have always been an open book so to speak. If someone is interested in me, just email me and I will answer your questions.  

As far as the merger we all have been referencing, I will be posting about it soon. I did happen to see a comment today about posts that are missing, I did delete the posts that Grace wrote from the blog, although they lacked much substance so I doubt that anyone was looking for one of her's for reference. I did have to archive a bunch to try to make it easier for this blog to move over to the new servers. If there is a particular blog post that you are looking for, I do have them all saved in PDF format and can email them if someone is interested. I also have received a lot of emails from people wondering why there comments were deleted or not posted, I was at first perplexed by this because some of the emails were from very respectful and well liked readers who we would never have a reason to moderate their comments or remove them. It has come to my attention that Grace had been deleting comments, quite a lot of comments ranging from different topics although the most recent ones deleted were regarding the Tudela/Small connection when it was first mentioned on the blog the day I was in for surgery and oddly enough, comments referencing Tamara Merrill. I apologize to those whose comments were deleted and thankfully that problem has been remedied.

  1. When I read that about him barricading himself in the bathroom I assumed that he was disposing of whatever drugs were in the home by flushing them down the toilet or pouring them down the drain. IF he acted by himself and Elisha and Courtney did not know what happened to Ayla they may have made him call 911 and then realized they would search the house and find drugs. I think he was covering his butt in the bathroom, so to speak.

    1. That is exactly what I thought. I got an added thought though in that if he had not told Elisha and Courtney as they claim, he may have been disposing of any drug stuff they may have had on them whem he was barricaded in the LITTLE boys room! JMO

      Delete
    2. I think Justin removed all drugs and paraphenalia the night before when he left the house, he likely would have brought them to a friend's house he could trust or hid them somewhere safe, no drug addict is going to flush their stash, especially since he knew LE would be at the house the next morning, he would have used it all first and no dealer is going to flush potential money. JMO

      Delete
    3. J4A I agree plus LE can recover flushed evidence. Hiding in the bathroom is the last place he'd be when the cops arrived (assuming his has a drop of intelligence) if he'd just flushed drug evidence.

      Delete
    4. Ita, besides, you may be able to flush drugs but you wouldnt be able to flush the utencils needed to do them. Not sure which drugs they used but pipes needles ect, are not flushable.

      Delete
    5. I agree Stormy, FC, & J4A but pills can be flushed and not neccessarily recovered in some of the older plumbing. The new plumbing all has traps and drains but some older houses do not.

      And I thought I saw where Elisha was possibly using diet pills or something like that. And we know Courtneys sisters had 1000 Oxys!

      Just wondering because if this was the case, it would reason that Justin lied to both of them the night before! Hope this makes sense?

      Delete
    6. Her having all those pills on her person makes me think the agreed on strategy was to hide drugs on person if cops came. Did they think their persons wouldn't be searched? I am not convinced those were Brianna's drugs. Maybe the criminal justice major novice dreamed up that plan and Brianna was dumb enough to go along?

      Delete
    7. It absolutly makes sense john. I even thought, yes pills can be flushed. Then I was thinking about how it was said that drugs were used.to put the kids to sleep and as far as I know marijauna is the only drug that makes you tired, hense the would need a pipe to smoke it from. Sence no such pariphanilia was found I assume it was removed from the home way ahead of time.

      Delete
    8. Good points. Although, some people use rolling papers.

      But that makes me think that the 911 call was planned ahead of time, due to the fact there hasn't been drug charges on the 3 in the home. They must have cleaned out the drugs and paraphernalia before calling. Even if they did that means a delay in calling 911.

      Delete
    9. I had not even thought of papers anon! I still find it unlikley that all they used. Drug users take pride in their utencils and though ive heard of people that only use papers its unlikly everyone did. While idk much about other drugs I grew up around marajauna users and everyone of them had at least one pipe.

      Delete
    10. I tend to think the drugs being used had to be a little harder than marijuana, how many people have you heard being violent or killing someone under the influence of pot? It is also not likely that if she got into drugs, she would die of a marijuana overdose. I am sure Justin did smoke pot, but I think it is likely there were stronger drugs in the house if any at all at that point. JMO

      Delete
    11. I absoulutly agree and due to the pill bust and speculation on bath salts im sure there were harder drugs there. Im also sure they are stoners as well and since you cant flush a pipe these items would have had to be removed way earlier? I just dont find it believable justin was hiding in the br flushing drugs ( why wouldnt he have removed them when he did the other utencils) and wouldnt le question why he was flushing the toilet? He was hiding from them cause he was panicing and had to get himself under control.

      Delete
    12. maybe the stuff was at the motel with mama PD

      Delete
    13. I also agree about the marijuana thing. Unlikely that they were on just pot if anyone in the house was violent. It's just too relaxing of an herbal substance to lend to this kind of crime (assuming they are responsible)-- though, I do know that pill heads and tweekers behave sporadically.

      I will say that during my conversation with Trista, I did blatantly ask her if justin was a tweeker and she honestly didn't know what I meant. I had to explain to her that it meant a user of crystal meth or other similar substances. She didn't seem to believe Justin would be involved with those type of drugs but she also said she couldn't be too sure. (that was left out of my published piece because it was pure spec)

      Delete
    14. You can flush a jipe[something used to smoke pot,which is about the size of a cigarette and a one hitter] (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hitter) down the toilet. A glass pipe however is not flushable and a bong is without a doubt unable to be flushed.

      Weed does not make people aggressive.. unless it was laced with something [it can happen].

      The Dipshits are probably mostly pill heads.

      Justin also looks [high] in these pictures http://mytinyurl.com/nsbgd0dc07

    15. JDip "Barricading" himself in the bathroom is the thing that stood out most to me, more than the gun comment. Why PDip would have made that comment about the gun is anyone's guess but she could have been trying to intimidate Trista by saying that. She allegedly intimidates her own kids, so why not try to intimidate and control Trista too? Who knows if there was really a gun in the house? LE hasn't said anything about it, but we also don't know everything.
      JDip in the bathroom is a whole different thing. If LE's words were actually "Barricade" then that makes him look all the more guilty. Barricade means he locked himself in and blocked access with something. When you've called to report your small child is missing from the house and the police show up to help, what possible reason could there have been to barricade yourself in? Nope, not so upset he's sick to his stomach or some other lame excuse - he's shown he doesn't care that she's gone and you don't need to block access to the room to throw up. I don't think it was to get rid of drugs either. If there were any in the house I think he'd have gotten rid of them before he called 911. Was he going to commit suicide thinking they'd lock him up and throw away the key? Or is he just that much of a wuss that he thought he'd hide out for a while and let the women deal with it? I'd be interested to know if the door was actually barricaded and if he came out of his own accord or they had to coax him out or break in.

    16. My opinion2! Dont forget about JDs panic disorder! ;/ I believe the drugs were already taken care of by the time JD locked himself in the potty. IMO he was:

      1) trying to come down off his high (compounded by the adrenaline of LYING repeatedly to LE)
      2) washing and washing and...trying like he** to make sure he got rid of every bit of evidence he felt clinging to his nastiness
      3) attempting to keep secret his utterly apparent broken nose/ face from
      -doing a face plant/ nose dive down the stairs OR
      -meeting his bother Lances fist/ over-active boot with blunt force
      4) mistook the shower curtain for his mommy's n Hiedin's crispy skirts!!!
      ...sorry I have NO patience for pansy arsed, lily livered killers! And its been a looong week!

  2. Tori, I have seen a few comments about the items found the first time in the river have been linked to Ayla. I know I have speculated, but do you feel or know that those items are related and possibly some of the additional evidence they will use the 20th-22nd?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think that the items found both times in the river were related. I think LE's comment to Trista about the items found the 2nd time was "They were not what we were hoping for" was taken by Trista to mean they were not related. I think it was what clenched it to LE that Ayla was no longer alive. I think all testing has been completed on the blood and I think in conjunction with the items found in the river, LE has a solid case against Justin for murder

      Delete
    2. God I hope you are right!

      Could what they were "hoping for" been the weapon or even a container large enough to hold Ayla? The commnet is so open ended!

      Delete
    3. If their case is solid then why aren't they arresting him??? Why is he free to come and go?!?!?

      Delete
    4. You may be correct. I think at least one of the searches uncovered items related.

      I think by the end of the month, IF no one comes forward, and IF Ayla's body is not recovered, LE will move forward. I hope...

      Delete
    5. @Hope For Ayla, I think once the GJ convenes and the GJ agrees that they have enough evidence to successfully prosecute him, the arrest warrant will be issued. Whereas Ayla has not been found yet, it may be more beneficial to the police at this time to have Justin coming and going freely and talking to whomever he is talking to, it may lead the police to information that may direct them to Ayla's whereabouts

      Delete
    6. Hope for Ayla, I am counting on the answer to your question being that LE is simply trying to get cooboration to what they already know! JMO

  3. Justin barricading himself, in the bathroom, is yet another example of his cowardly ways, IMO. He was once again, leaving his "dirty work" up to others (especially seems to be women with him).

    I don't think he was getting rid of drugs, at that time, UNLESS courtney or Elisha needed to get rid of something.

    I think 29 Violette was voided of drugs and alcohol long before 911 was called. Phoebe and Elisha's "lawyer" stated there was no drugs or alcohol in the home that night. Probably true... For THAT night.

    I think he was def probably freaking out before, during and after calling 911, but for himself, not Ayla.

    If your BABY girl is missing, would you -

    Hang up on 911 TWO times?

    Barricade yourself in the bathroom, once help arrives?

    Or would you be blurting out everything possible about Ayla? About the last moment you saw her, where you looked already. All the while probably BEGGING for them to go find her, and probably attempting to go find her yourself.

    1. LE would have had to search the neighborhood for me when they arrived because I would have been out searching before they even got close enough to hear me yelling AYLAAAAAAA!

    2. Exactly! He wasn't acting like a despondent father at all. He was acting like a guilty criminal.

    3. I can't say how I'd react if it were me, but I do agree that Justin's behavior was strange from the get-go. I remember the first days of this case when it was believed that Trista may have abducted her own daughter, but his behavior has been the driving force in the suspicion hanging over his family.

      Delete
  4. And just so everyone knows, DHS did not take Ray away from Trista, it is a lie started by a Justin Supporter. I have also seen comments elsewhere that my daughter has been or will be taken away next, these are all ridiculous rumors only intended to cause more hurt and anguish on the INNOCENT parties involved.

    3. John P NEVER be sorry for posting your opinions and your thoughts, when they come out with things like this it only proves further that when we hit too close to home and they cannot refute what we say, they lie and personally attack people.

  6. Wow! Due to job searching and other family related issues I have not been on here for a few days, I cant beleive how much is going on. The possibility of ayla being adopted, considering the alternitive I hope thats the case though not likely because of the blood in the basement.
    What really gets me is this is the first I have heard of a loud noise heard by neighbors that could have been a gun shot. As far as I know shooting someone causes a splatter and I have not heard le found anything like that. I do suppose that could be avoided using a pillow or something but I also negate this idea because unless the bullet became lodged it would have left a mark wherever it hit after passing through.

    2. I have been seeing some of the comments on the GJ and I believe they have enough to convict. This is why they expired the reward money, they no longer need to use it but wanted to keep it out there a little longer in case they could obtain even further evidence. I have to say Trista is a VERY strong woman. If I was her I dont think I could control myself upon seeing my pos baby daddy in public ; /

    1. LMAO Boo! I did not dissect the whole interview because I did know many people have issues with her. I figured that Trista told her this and if Trista did not, Jeff would correct me. Since I have not been corrected yet, I am going to assume she got this much right. I do find it kind of creepy that she called Trista for a pseudo interview when she isn't even really a "real" journalist.

    2. I went looking after posting...that info's on other sites...so unless the whole web copied one hack, I think it's safe to assume it's not all bullshit...

    3. Thanks :) You've got Mail BTW :)

      Delete
    4. I don't find it creepy. She's a self promoting copycat playing monkey see monkey do. The only problem is she has no idea what she's doing. She put things in quotes and said Trista said them, then admitted later they are her recollections, not Trista's words. That is pretty bad. She also says she did the write-up from memory, indicating she didn't take notes. This indicates higher than normal probability of error.

      Delete
    5. I have interviewed Trista by phone and can tell you that the composition set out by Hoffman doesn't sound like Trista at all. The info may have come from Trista but the sentence structure in the manufactured quotes (Hoffman admits they aren't real quotes, so why she put the info in quotes is perplexing). Also Hoffman said she talked to Trista for about an hour, then she tried to remember everything that was said. That's pretty ridiculous. Think how much can be said in a hour long conversation. Considering she has a news org's photo accompanying her article with no attribution or indication permission was granted for its use, it's obvious she has no concept of what she purports to be doing.

    6. HerpeHam is inserting herself into Ayla's case because it's back in the news and she's a gloryhound hack. She's not doing it to help or 'cause she gives a shit...she does it for hits and to get her moment in the sun...Who else is doing something like that? Oh, yeah, Grace's crazy ass. Squelchy can't even bother to fucking fact check or get shit right, you think she's gonna record shit or write anything down? She's gonna spin and make it sound good, like any yellow "journalist" would...She's a glorified blogger struggling to get her fifteen minutes, so take every bit of "reporting" she does with a grain of salt.

    10. Chelsea, I have to ask because this has been bothering me since I first started seeing comments about this. I the article ytou simply state that LE told Trista that Justin had barricaded himself in the bathroom the morning he made the 911 call. There have been several comments since about him "barricading" when the police arrived. Do you know for sure if it was before, during, or after LE arrived? I have not seen it reported as to when and, like you I want to try and be accurate!

      Delete
    11. I wasn't told specifically, but if/when I speak with Trista again I will ask for a clarification.

    12. Thanks Chelsea, I appreciate the response. I am glad you decided to post some comments here on J4A, we are happy that our readers speak openly and ask questions so maybe something jars loose in someone that will help find Justice for Ayla. We really do have a great group of commenters and posters here.

    13. NP, most of are here for one thing: to find Ayla or seek justice for what happened to her.

      I think any source (this blog included) that is dedicated to spreading the word and keeping facts straight is doing its job perfectly.

  8. Eagerly meeting LE at the door, anxious to speak with them regarding your abducted daughter = Nothing to fear from LE presence, because you KNOW you're innocent of wrong-doing.

    Hiding in your bathroom when LE arrives, trying to avoid having to personally speak with them regarding your "abducted" daughter = FEARFUL of LE presence, because you KNOW you're guilty of wrong-doing.

    Just sayin'!

    1. Oh VTLady,
      how you put it so well ill never know, lol. If my child were missing my phone would be on an answered, I would not hang up on a 911 call( though I might have had someone else call in my need to be activly searching every corner of the block) I would be available 24/7! In short I would be frantic and not hiding, this makes no sense unless hes GUILTY.

      Delete
    2. When I read that he barricaded himself in the bathroom, I immediately thought one of 2 things, he did it because he was avoiding them, which tied into the hanging up on 911 info and his avoidance of media etc OR that he instantly got cold feet and knew he forgot one major detail that was going to be his downfall and he was hiding in the bathroom so LE could not arrest him like the coward he is. Both reasons explain his attitude getting more and more sure of himself as time went on and his comments criticizing LE...

      Delete
    3. Barricading oneself in a bathroom suggests blocking the door with something so no one could open it.

      Delete
    4. That is what I thought, so I initially thought he did it to prevent his arrest.

    5. That is a very good point, Anon!
      The term "barricading" means something very specific...
      If they'd MEANT Justin "shut" or "locked" himself in that bathroom... they probably would've SAID it that way.

  11. Another thought,
    I have not heard one word of jd saying he feels guilty or responsible, at fault, for aylas dissaperance. It is NORMAL for a parent to feel that way when something like this happens. If you look up the word guilty on wikipedia it gives you a link to psycopath/sociopath/anti social dissorder and say says these people feel no guilt or remorse. When guilty they try to, rationalize their behaviors, blame someone else or flat out deny it.

    1. I think he certainly fits that description. He has been more concerned with how he is viewed and that people are making him out to be a monster than he is about Ayla. It is not normal. It is disgusting! I was just watching the Feb Nancy Grace episode and it showed a clip of when he was the vigil and reporters asked about the blood and he answers that he isn't there to answer questions. Anyone who has nothing to hide would be explaining that blood and making sure people knew it was not related.

    2. Ive watched that video several times and everytime all I think is are you fn serious? It sounds like he was advised to keep his mouth shut? Ive never seen someone look so uncaring he actually looks bored and annoyed to be there!

    3. Yes, like it was a favor to the public that he attended and it was a burden to him and that being asked about the blood was wrong and what nerve that reporter had. Justin needs to get off his high horse or hopefully soon, LE will knock his smug ass off it

  12. The news conference kind of shook things up in unpredictable ways. I've watched it once all the way through and shall watch it again in a few days. All the blog drama is a natural distraction from the facts of the case, a natural force of delusion meets the facts. People shut down to protect their delusions that they can escape the effects related to the causes they created by their actions.

    At the moment when clarity appears they engage in storm creation to keep the general fantasia of believing they shall escape the effects of the cause they created, which is the mysterious vanishing of a little girl.

    My faith in you remains the same T.

    I have no emotional-intellectual beef with people who follow crime issues or advocate for children, but I see that as a long term effort whereas Ayla's case shall have a beginning, a middle and an end. We have definitely entered the earliest stages of the middle. LE has a strategy based on what can hold up in court and what is not viable and convincing.

    I walked away from Chelsea's interview with those key facts; the gun comment and Justin barricading himself in the bathroom. In a way all the commotion is good, it means the tiniest bit of reality is registering with the people who think it is no big deal Ayla has vanished into thin air never to be seen again.

    A mystery such as this demands a jury's help to sort it out. :-)
    If after a well handled trial they declare Justin innocent so be it.
    I think "Twitchy" is going to begin dreading the smell of oak paneling and furniture polish pretty darned soon.

    Rest up be healthy and don't get lost in details.
    As to G. her pain is irrelevant this is about Ayla.
    There are no perfect people in this world or any other.

    Tune of the day "Shock The Monkey"
    There's a benign second level to the song where they are protecting the monkey from being shocked into oblivion and madness and on that level the monkey escapes damage. The good monkey's that is! :-) The bad monkey gets zapped again and again. When the young people are gaming they call it "spawn trapping" where you drive your opponent back to their home base and lock them into it keeping them off the battlefield with a withering level of ordinance fired as a perpetual stream of destruction in their direction.

  13. When I read the interview I was shock to hear about a gun. Hmmm now Trista is talking about a gun why didn't she mention that in the first place. Now we are hearing about it now. If a gun was used wouldn't they find gun powder residue on him? It really just amaze me her story keeps changing and keeps adding to it. I am so confused now what will she come up with next? Not one interview a gun was never mention ?????

    1. I'm sure she's told others before. The problem with this is that the mainstream media (i.e. local affiliates and national headline news sources) tend to either ignore things, twist things or completely disregard things. Also, these sources sometimes are told by law enforcement and lawyers of the "opposing side" not to publish certain things.

      I believe that I am not the only person who has been told about the gun story. I think that maybe I'm the first to say "fuck the police" in that aspect and just release everything (almost) that I was told. That's just my point of view/opinion. Can't pass that off as "fact," but I do believe she has told people this before.

      It's best to keep in mind that our conversation was not arranged by lawyers. It was not scripted. It was all very impromptu and uncontrolled. I got the "real" Trista when I spoke with her.

      And for that I am a million times grateful and a million times confident that Trista is absolutely NOT involved in her daughter's disappearance. This is all on the DiPietros. I am 100% certain.

      (of course we can all be fooled)

      Delete
    2. No I'm sorry I'm sure the gun info would have been made public. Also with all the interviews she has done and being so upset about her daughter missing she would have said something about it. Also I really think that would have had Justin's family or who ever was in the house speak up or would lite a fire under his butt and for him to speak up for once. So I am very sorry I don't not believe the gun story. Now I am having really serious doubts. Stop and think about it a gun that is very important info and the police would had said something about a gun in the house.

      Delete
    3. I am hesitant to believe a gun was in the house, I am not saying Trista wasn't possibly told thar but if there were a gun registered to anyone in that home LE would demand it to test for gpr and if they didn't or couldn't produce it I would imagine everyone would be tested.

      I am not going to rule it out on the off chance it was one of the items found in the river searches but I am thinking it is unlikely

      Delete
    4. J4A, you're assuming the gun was registered. Given the lifestyle of the parties involved I would be more inclined to believe the gun was an under the table sale.

    5. I'm not so hesitant to believe there was a gun in the home. I'd be willing to bet if there was, it was most likely not legal. IF there was a gun(s) in the home, I'm sure it was removed prior to the 911 call, along with the drugs and alcohol.

      I'm actually leaning more towards there was a gun(s), than not. I'm not saying it was used against Ayla, but I do believe they, or at least Justin, probably had illegal gun(s). JMO

    6. Sadly you are probably right, it is far easier to buy a gun off craigslist as a private sale and legal in Maine than it is to go to a gun shop.

    7. 1. What Steve said


      2. The investigators have been notoriously standoffish in this case. The ONLY reason why we even learned of the blood in the basement was because Trista leaked it. Otherwise, we may never had heard about it.

      I believe her. Again, we can all be fooled, but I believe her.

      Delete
    8. Another point to consider, If there were a gun in the house and If the suspected parties in the house were indeed involved in the drug trade or there was a significant amount of illegal substanses in the house, wouldn't that immediately raise the charge to a class 1 felony? Add to that a "supposed" abduction at the time and you'd have an almost automatic life sentence for someone plus major jail time for others?

    9. Could the gun missing be one of the unusual things Phoebe claimed to be missing/out of place on returning to the home? Trying to cover up it was gone? Maybe police did not release gun info because they believed she was lying and thought keeping it confidential would further the investigation.

    10. I have no doubt that Pheeb's Violette Ave. "home" has seen it's fair share of fire-arms.

      If rural Maine is *ANYTHING like* rural Vermont, there may actually be MORE guns than people taking up residence!
      [Hey. It's a redneck thing, what can I say?]

      I know for a fact, that (here) MANY firearms end up traded for cash between neighbors, hunting buddies, and the extended family members of the original owner... USUALLY, without there being any overtly nefarious intent for the gun changing hands.

      I think that if someone were to actually AUDIT and trace all of the serial #'s on every supposedly "registered firearm" owned by residents of VT, plus inventory all of the still-operational, exempt "antiques"...

      FC, I am also wondering if maybe when LE said "they did not find what they were hoping for" after the second recovery of items from the river, might the gun have been one of the items they were "hoping for"?

    13. @FC:

      I think Pheeb's intentionally vague allusion about "noticing" certain oddities, and things "missing/out of place" in her home, following Ayla's supposed "abduction" was just another LAME attempt on her part, to add credibility to her kids' claims.

      It's one of the details about this case that I've chosen add to the compost pile, where it now enjoys the company of:

      *Derek Tudela's claim of a December 16th "playdate" between his son and AYLA...

      *Elisha's claim of having done "fine" on her polygraph...

      *Justin's claim that he neither witnessed anything, nor questioned Lance regarding, the broad-daylight beatdown he dispensed to JLinnell..

      *The tale concocted by Phoebe and Justin, regarding HOW Ayla came to have a broken arm, that went untreated for at LEAST 24hrs

      And, OF COURSE...

      *The claim that the LIP purchase was "totally innocent and unrelated" to EITHER Ayla's blood found cleaned-up next to Justin's bed, OR her reported "abduction" by ninjas in the night!!

    14. If LE/fbi thought a gun was involved in the "disappearance" of Ayla, but did not find it in the home during the search, they're NOT going to release that missing evidence to the public. Perhaps, now, with the evidence found in the Kennebec, they can "let that cat out of the bag" (or should I say- Baby's backpack)

  14. Thanks for sharing this. The point, as always, is to push for justice for baby Ayla -- not the strange behavior of those who follow me from crime story to crime story.

    As an advocate for missing children, I am only interested in justice being served.


    And to make things perfectly clear the quotes shared are indeed the words of Trista Reynolds, but they are put together in context. A lot was said in our conversation -- some of which I will not publish because SOME of it was private. I have a lot more respect for Trista in this than to air out our entire conversation when I was not only giving her a platform from which to speak but a sympathetic ear to vent, because she needs the support.

    As for being a blogger only interested in page views -- yes, page views are nice. Page views mean people are reading. They mean people are being aware of Ayla's story (or the stories of any of the other missing women and children I cover). So to use the fact that I have a large audience as a way to degrade what I do is absolutely childish and wrong.


    This is about Ayla, not the petty nonsense ;)

    1. Chelsea, I only became aware of you because we were both the subject of ridicule but the JSTL blogger at one point, I don't know much about you or what you do and maybe read only a handful of posts by you in various places since the start of this case, regardless of people's personal opinions of you, I am thankful that you posted about Ayla because it keeps her name out there in the public and gives her a broader audience. I was not under the impression that you were a reporter, I may have been misinformed, I was under the assumption you were in college and blogged about different criminal cases. I personally would never interview someone because I have no training on how to do so and would definitely not attempt to interview the mother of a missing child for fear that I would do something or say something that could be damaging to the case inadvertently. I was surprised you reached out to Trista however if you were doing it to give her a sympathetic ear, I am sure Trista appreciated that. She does need support. This has to be the absolute worse thing she will ever face in her lifetime and she is extremely young on top of that she has a small child, her coping skills cannot be fully developed. I hope you take no offense to anything I have written

      Delete
    2. I took absolutely no offense to what you wrote. In fact, I am pleased that you wrote about it. The more people who read and know about the interview, the more people will realize that there are elements in this case that are not being covered by the mainstream.

      No, I am not a "reporter" but a lot of people like to call me that, and even friends of mine because I do happen to "report" on crime stories and interview people from time to time.

      Yes I am in college, but have been working as a crime analyst for quite some time (as that is what I am by title.. a crime analyst and criminologist in training) I just have a soft spot for missing cases and try to advocate for them as much as possible.


      As for the ridicule.. it is not something that bothers me. I am not the most professional person on the planet and I have been known to fire back at people with a tongue that cuts just as deeply as they invite. In the case of this "bookitty" character, I have had run-ins with her in the past. In the Samantha Koenig case I defended someone was falsely accused of abducting and murdering the young lady, and I became a target of extreme vitriol by her and others. Of course, the real man responsible is behind bars awaiting trial and the falsely accused gentleman had to leave his home just to pick up the pieces of his life (with his child and mother as well)so that goes to show that the ridicule of this individual and her ilk really held no weight in the work I try to do, and it never will. Interestingly enough, even though she was wrong and is guilty of cyber-bullying off of a belief that she was proven wrong upon, she is still behaving as though there is some type of grudge or bad blood between us.. behaving as though she was still in the right for conducting a campaign of bullying against someone who was defending the wrongly accused. Attacked me because I wouldn't sharpen my pithfork in a mob against a young man who was simply different. It is my opinion and honest observation that "bookitty" isn't interested in justice but entertainment instead. That is not something I am interested in, so other than this statement about the situation I won't acknowledge her presence. I just figured I would let you know what this is about. There is a delightful thread on the Dreamin' Demon in which she went into total meltdown mode just because I was given kudos for uhm.. being correct.

      ;)

      And the Madeleine McCann "exposing the myths" blog. 0_o we might as well just read the weekly world news. I'm not bothered by that blog. My points of view mesh right in line with several experts on that case. The McCann hounds can have their fun. It's done nothing to harm my credibility or track record.

      Let me speak in caps for a minute so as to clarify since I do not know how to italicize in the comment box (nor do I think I can)

      WHEN YOU REGULARLY COVER CRIME CASES AS AN ADVOCATE FOR VICTIMS AND THE WRONGLY ACCUSED, YOU WILL RUN INTO THE LOONIEST OF THE LOONS. IT'S TO BE EXPECTED THAT THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO TREAT THIS LIKE IT'S A GAME IN WHICH YOU "CHOOSE SIDES" WHETHER THESE PEOPLE ARE EVEN CONNECTED TO THE CASE OR KNOW ALL THE DETAILS. -- That is why the nonsense truly does not bother me. And it's something I hope everyone takes into consideration when covering crime cases or even talking to people who do on the regular. It's not glamorous. You take a constant beating when you jump in and get your hands dirty -- which I do!



      I truly want to express that if there is anyone on this planet who needs a hug right now, it's Trista Reynolds. I'm an atheist so I don't do the "prayer" thing, but really we should all just keep her and her family in our thoughts and just hope for the best as the next few weeks go by.

    3. Chelsea, on the article you said, "Of course I am paraphrasing some of her quotes..." Quoting and paraphrasing is an either/or proposition. That, I think, is the source of the confusion. Is the material you put inside quotation marks her exact words or your paraphrasing of what she said or a combination of both?

      Delete
    4. The words with quotes are exact words but placed after introductions written by me for the sake of the article.

      To clarify:

      I didn't sit there on the phone and say "question #1 -- bla bla bla" -- we just talked, and I asked her questions she answered them but we talked a lot. We hit it off pretty well so we had a lot of normal conversational discussion that is irrelevant to the interview. I wrote down what she said, taking up about five pages of my sketchpad (as I ran out of lined paper!)

      When I say they are paraphrased, I mean the quotes are placed together in blocks. For instance, when she called Justin DiPietro a monster (her exact words were "Justin DiPietro is a monster, so is Elisha and so is Courtney." -- and then we discussed more stuff that isn't going to be published.. then she added more that was put right after the quote.

      In other words: Everything there are things that Trista Reynolds said to me. All I did was put them in text form and cleaned them up for readability -- as she and I agreed upon myself doing. I put in brackets clarifications (as what is supposed to be done) and put quotes together that were part of the same conversation, but were spaced apart in real time.


      I hope that clears things up a bit. :)

      Delete
    5. I like your writing style, however when facts are so vital to proving and disproving one's character in Ayla's case, your readers don't want you to paraphrase. Because it is important to us to know the facts as they were revealed to you. It may have been useful if you had clarified your use of paraphrasing in the original article. If it was important enough to reference you were paraphrasing, it would be important to clarify how you were paraphrasing instead of assuming your readers trusted you implicitly. As much as we love you and your articles, especially in Ayla's particular case, there are massive blog wars that demand facts. Bloggers are calling everything into question, it has nothing to do with you personally. I hope I made sense and did not offend. Thank you.

    6. Oh, yay, more spin...Tooting of horns and making an ass of U and Me...The comments made by myself on the Samantha Koenig thread had pretty much zero to do with that actual story, but I like how I suddenly conducted some kind of campaign...it was more a call out to hypocrisy...And since it was brought up, anyone can see who had a "meltdown" and where a sore faced blogger even twists shit around, yet again...

      The "years of experience" shit seems to vary quite a bit for this one...from 20+ years and now it's just "quite sometime"...And for someone who does a lot of addle-brained harassing, this one sure is quick to toss out cyber-bullying whenever the criticism hits...If I recall correctly, she even regurgitated someone else's sentiments on the Casey Anthony fiasco and not getting why people could become emotionally invested in it...for someone who displays such a lack of empathy, one has to wonder why this kind of person would insert themselves into a similar case, where people are, once again, emotionally invested in this case...when this is over, do they get the same mockery at their expense? Bullshit is still bullshit no matter how hard you try to cover the stench...now go ahead and throw your online quiz IQ score at me and steal someone else's kudos for the book they wrote to pass off as a rave about your own self-pubbed fan fic....

  15. I thought Chelsea's interview was Trista was pretty darn good. She did fully disclose that she was basically working off memory. I thought it was in depth, and good detail. IF there was anything totally "off", I'm sure Trista or Jeff would let her or someone know. I'm hoping she attempts to contact Justin, even if she just gets a "no comment", or no response.

    I have never read any of Chelsea's other articles, besides ones related to Ayla, so I can't/don't have an opinion of any other articles besides the ones regarding Ayla. I've read, I think, all her articles about Ayla. They always appeared, to me, to be completely factual, noting sources, along with her own thought/opinions.

    Basically, I thought it was a great interview, by someone not afraid to actually ask some questions.

    1. Thank you Kit. I do try.

      I have been looking into getting ahold of the DiPietros, but I am nearly positive that they will not speak with me.

      Getting in touch with Trista was extremely easy, but it was probably because of my presence online and the fact that I have notoriously sided against the DiPietro's suspicious behavior from the beginning with the exception of two (out of like 50-100) in which I question whether or not Trista is credible. Naturally, by now I believe she is truly a victim in this and a distraught mother who needs everyone's support.

      Chelsea, I have to ask because this has been bothering me since I first started seeing comments about this. I the article you simply state that LE told Trista that Justin had barricaded himself in the bathroom the morning he made the 911 call. There have been several comments since about him "barricading" when the police arrived. Do you know for sure if it was before, during, or after LE arrived? I have not seen it reported as to when and, like you I want to try and be accurate!

    6. I also enjoy CH's articles. I love Carol Bengal's too. This particular article took me by surprise. It just sounded a little careless and sounded like we should just take every word because it was printed and not necessarily factual. To me, it seemed like the entire article could have possibly been mere opinion. Why? Because of the one sentence regarding paraphrasing. For me, and me alone, that discounted the rest of the reading for me. I am not a professional journalist, I am certainly not a professional critic, and I truly enjoy CH"s writing. It's just that for me, this one particular article was not what I expected. That's just one gal's opinion and I am nobody of importance.

    1. No and I believe what Anon 8:54 says below is incorrect. Police went to the motel where Trista and Jessica were staying and also contacted Ron Reynolds, Sr. Trista was en route to Machiasport with Ray Fortier, Sr., sleeping, did not answer her phone until RF finally woke her up because he thought it might be important when the phone kept ringing. Justin did not call Trista.

I just don't understand why she would say that they never contacted her before the conference . I agree with you 100% what they said was a mothers worst nightmare. I am sorry for what she is going thru

    1. What about the rest of your comment Anon? The phone logs showing what you state as facts, the statement they called JD too to tell him but ignoring that his reaction was no reaction, etc! It is comments like this that cause me to question the intent of the message. And to respond only to a piece of the reply causes me to believe you were trying to set a double standard like many others have done in the past few weeks. If that was not your intent, then I apologize, if it was then you truely do not have a heart because a person being told this news of thier child is liable to say the sky is purple and not realize it!

    2. ITA, JohnP!..

      I also wonder if Trista refused to process and/or believe that MSP's "final word" was going to remain that they believed Ayla was dead, following that courtesy phone call??

      Perhaps some small part of her was still clinging to the hope that new evidence could be uncovered last-minute, that would change investigators' minds, OR, that this was some sort of "tactic" to gauge reaction.

      Perhaps knowing that LE has said MANY things to her "off the record", but has ONLY confirmed publicly that which they are 100% sure of, meant that hearing and seeing this PUBLIC statement made by MSP, had a DEVASTATING impact to Trista, that hearing the news in the private phone-call, simply DID NOT??

      I cannot imagine the hell she's going thru...

    3. When a family is member is elderly or on a death bed, we prepare ourselves for the inevitable. We know they are going to die, we know we will be sad when it happens. We come to accept and understand that death is close at hand. Yet somehow, no matter how well we prepared ourselves, it is still "shocking" to get the news. How is that possible? We knew what to expect, we toyed with the scenarios in our mind and we felt prepared to deal with the news when it came. It's just that somehow, life has a way of reminding us that we can never truly be prepared when we hear confirmation of the tragic news.

      I haven't bothered to stick up for Trista on this until now, because to me, this is common sense and anyone questioning Trista crying, is just a DipSupporter looking to stir up chit.

      Trista responded the exact same way ANY OF US would have responded under the circumstance. PERIOD.

      Pray you never have to be in Trista's shoes to find this out for yourself.

  20. Excuse me but I do have a heart. Ok let's go back then. In the beginning the police did say when they took Justin's phone it did show that he did call her. And as far as his reaction when they called him it does show he is hiding something. Also let's go back when you said in one of your response to another anon that Trista was poor couldn't afford much and the part about staying at a motel. Then answer one question why in the world would she have too many cell phones? From what I understand when your on state asst they check to see if you have your own cell phone. I do work and I am very lucky that I do not have to be on state asst. oh please do not accuse me on putting people down on state asst dont even go there. I know times are tough and there are people that do need help. So as a mother I do have a heart.

Also, KJ just posted an article about a Maine man found guilty of insurance fraud and having to spend 2 years in jail for it. Insurance fraud is real and could play a bigger role in this case than what some would want us to believe.

  22. I skipped over all of the comments so I can point something out. A drug charge will not prevent anyone from receiving finacial aid, nor will it prevent them from eligability from loans of any sort. My boyfriend has drug charges (weed) on his record and was in jail for a little while (before we got together). When he was attending the University of Iowa, he received finacial aid, took out loans and received many finacial rewards for having good grades. He was also a Gamma Pi Beta and graduated with a 4.0 and at the top of his class.

    Maybe during Courtney's prison stay she will be able to complete her education, since they do allow some immates to receive a college education during their stay.Prisons and jails also have rehabilitation options for offenders to help steer them in the right direction and make better life choice after they are released. After release there are programs that help an offender feel like they are part of the community again.But I am sure that Courtney knows about most of her options, since she is supposedly in a criminal justice program.

    There is something called the inside-out program that allows offenders to participate in a classroom setting with people on the "outside". http://www.insideoutcenter.org/
    It is a rather interesting program.

    Anyway,drug charges do not always prevent people from finding future employment either [depends on where you are applying]. It is sometimes more difficult for someone with a record to find an apartment, than it is for them to find employment.

    1. You are incorrect about drug offenses. The U.S. Dept of Education administers the federal student grant and loan programs and this is what they say about drug offenses: http://studentaid.ed.gov/students/publications/completing_fafsa/2012_2013/elig.html

      Delete
    2. Sorry Forever Curious, but it is you who is wrong. "If you have previously received federal student aid, you may not be eligible to receive additional federal aid if WHILE you were enrolled in school and receiving federal student aid you had a drug offense for selling or possessing illegal drugs and that offense led to a conviction under federal or state law."

      My boyfriend's "offense" didn't occur while he was in college, so therefore he was eligable for student aid.

      Courtney most likely does not have any offenses either. For 1. you are NOT allowed into a criminal justice program what so ever, if you have a criminal background.. that has drug charges or other serious offenses on it. They do background checks on a person who before they can be enrolled into a criminal justice program. 2. if she has been currently charge with a drug or any other offense, she would be kicked out of the program and removed from the FAFSA grant/loan.

      Delete
    3. As far as I'm aware, if someone is convicted of a federal drug charge (I'm not sure about charges other than drugs), the criminal is then not eligible for federal assistance/aid. This is regarding federal convictions, idk about non federal. I don't know what happens if you're already enrolled, using federal aid - if they "revoke" it...? But if the conviction is before you try to get federal aid, you're def not going to get it.

  25. First we hear all the excuses about how the phone at Pheeb's house "cut out" and disconnected during the 911 call(s) and that Justin allegedly did not hang up intentionally. Instead, we are to believe the phone (which apparently never encountered these issues until this call) took a life of it's own during this one 911 call and continually malfunctioned. We hear that 911 workers called Justin's house back every time. NOT that Justin called 911 after each disconnection, just the opposite. In fact, Justin hung up on 911 on several occasions. But once again, we are to believe that coincidence after coincidence, poor Justina met with bad luck.

    Next we hear about PussyMan hiding in the bathroom. LE is at his house and the poor little scumbag couldn't finish his phone calls to make a police report and instead of waiting outside to speak to the first cruiser, PussinBoots is hiding in the bathroom. Too distraught to talk????? HUH?? YOUR FREAKING KID IS MISSING CHITFORBRAINS, one doesn't hide and avoid LE, one seeks them out and grabs their hand desperately trying to communicate every piece of information available.

    A parent wastes not a single second to find their child. They don't hang up, they don't hide in bathrooms and they don't run out of police stations when they see Luminol pictures of their child's blood. They actively seek out and demand answers.

    Pretend someone stole your coke Justin. I bet you'd have more questions tracking down your drugs than you do for your own daughter. The daughter to whom you took out a 25K LIP.

  27. First of all, I want to state that I am not a DIP/Courtney supporter. I think Courtney was a goody two shoes at one point in her life. Courtney's sister does some fucked up shit, but I don't think Courtney has anything to do with her sister’s drug shit. I think Courtney is gullible, wants to "save" people, and what have you. Courtney probably let her sister stay with her, in hopes that she could try to save her sister from the path she is going down, which Courtney has failed, undeniably.
    Courtney probably attempted to try to "save" Justin as well, since I don't see why else she would want to stay with Mr. Yuck. Especially, after all the lies and cheating he has done during their relationship. Now she has herself all tangled up, in the Dipshit spider web and she is about to become lunch.
    Most of us do agree, that the only reason Courtney isn't singing about what has happened to Ayla, is because Courtney is trying to mostly protect her son and possibly trying to continue on with whatever else she has {had} going on for her.
    Courtney should stop trying to save and change people. People do not want to be saved or changed unless they want to be. This is a fact.
    I think after this all is said and done…Courtney won’t be able to get a job in the criminal justices field. Her name is forever tacked to this case and not coming clean and hindering an investigation, isn’t going to look good. Plus Courtney why is Courtney in a criminal justice program, if she has no desire to bring justice to Ayla? Usually people in the criminal justice program, want to bring justice to people. Just guessing.
    The Dipietro’s remind me of the Fratellis, [who is the criminal family in the Goonies movie]. Justin, Lance, and Pheobe without a doubt in my mind, have play(ed) a role in Ayla’s disappearance and where Ayla currently is. I am not so sure about Elisha, even though she is 1 of the 3 who were in the home, during the morning hours, of the missing person report. I wonder if Elisha was even in the home at the time Ayla was fatally injured and/or was removed. Elisha could have been filled in at later date, about what has occurred to Ayla and she could have possibly been threatened to keep her mouth shut. Maybe someone threatened Elisha, which if she confessed to what has happened to Ayla, that Gabby would suffer the same fate.
    In the phone interview, Trista stated that Phoebe had mentioned a gun of being in the house and the house being watched (creepy). So if the house is being “watched”, wouldn’t it be highly likely that there is a witness or witnesses who could have seen Ayla being removed from the home? I am curious of why the house is being watched. Does Peachum’s or company owe money to someone and so they’re being watched to make sure no one skips town? This could be the reason of the L.I.P. and the attempt to claim Ayla illegal on the tax return.
    This whole situation/case is a tangled mess. I wish it were more like a sweater, one pull of a loose thread, and the whole thing becomes unraveled.

  30. A gun in the house with three small children present? I want to hear more about this if Chelsea is still in the buiding.

    Was the gun locked away? Was the gun loaded? Was Trista concerned about the gun? Was the gun registered? If not, illegal possession of a firearm is a crime. Where is the gun now? Is the gun missing? Reported stolen? Chelsea, I hope you didn't just let Trista's gun comment go without some follow-up questions.

    Trista has given many interviews, and not once was Phoebe's bizarre comment about a gun in the house mentioned. Nor has it been mentioned on Answers for Ayla.

    Hell, we don't even know if the doors and windows at 29 Violette Avenue were locked that night. If I had a gun for protection, I think I would be vigilant about securing my home. And God knows I would fire off a warning shot when my windows were being busted out late that night.

    Chelsea...did you run the gun detail by LE?

    I understand you will be reporting more on your in-depth conversation with Trista, but this gun issue is rather significant and time-sensitive, if you catch my drift.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Chelsea posts: "I believe that I am not the only person who has been told about the gun story. I think that maybe I'm the first to say "fuck the police" in that aspect and just release everything (almost) that I was told. That's just my point of view/opinion. Can't pass that off as "fact," but I do believe she has told people this before."

    "Fuck the police", Chelsea? You may very well be running this case into the ditch! And you advocate for missing children? Is that a joke?

    If this gun detail is indeed factual, I believe LE may very well have wanted to keep it under wraps for the good of the investigation. I don't know why Trista would run her mouth off about it with the likes of you.

    I will tell you this: If Trista told me about a gun in the DiPietro household, I would not be posting about it on my blog or on a comment board. I would immediately report Trista's comment to LE.

    This is about a murdered toddler, Chelsea. It is not about your sensational blog (which, up to right now, I mostly enjoyed).

  32. I have to agree with VT Lady on this one. If we called 911 it would take 30 minutes for the cops to get here, every house on our road has more guns than people. We're all law abiding people. Our kids take hunter safety courses, and our loaded guns are not accessable to our kids. I've had to shoot wild dogs while walking to the barn. There are legitimate reasons for owning a gun. While I think the Dips are capable of anything, the gun may not have anything to do Ayla. mountain mama

      I have not heard a peep about a gun until Chelsea's blog post. Why would Trista mention Phoebe's odd comment about the gun to Chelsea and not in any of her numerous interviews?

      And why Chelsea's "fuck the police" comment? Chelsea describes herself as an advocate for missing children. I question that. I now feel Chelsea just wants to garner wide readership to her blog. JMO.

    2. It's rather shitty that Squelchy would say those investigating are "notoriously standoffish" and the blood in JDip's basement is only out there because of Trista. Yeah, Trista put it out there, but it meant little until McCausland confirmed it. All anyone could do was speculate and wonder if it was true. It's pretty insulting to that entire group of law enforcement that are busting their asses to find Ayla and give her justice. They can't run their mouths about every detail and compromise their whole investigation, so the "standoffish" behavior is justified. And McCausland hasn't done much to mask his contempt for the DipShit Crew, so I wouldn't characterize the man as "standoffish"...He may basically be a mouthpiece, but he's speaking for the department and for Ayla...So "fuck the police" when they are the ones going to bat to get Ayla justice and hand JDip his ass is a pretty craptastic thing to throw out there....

    3. ITA BooKat. I've read some of Chelsea's prior pieces and thought they were okay. But to publish the gun detail with the "fuck the police" attitude (and actual words!) was unnecessary.

I write words that come from a human entity, I write my thoughts and my feelings about Ayla and what might have happened to her and thoughts about those who seem to be ultimately responsible for her disappearance. The trouble here is that all of you fit into that same category. Inconsequetial electrons floating around in cyberspace, but attached to a human being. It would seem that some forget that this is about Ayla and not them o their personal vendettas. I've read this blog for some time and interjected my thoughts, right or wrong, when I feel I should. Chelsea came on the blog offering her own interruptations and was soundly attacked. Is she right in what she said, did Trista really say those things? Ask Jeff. I'm sure he would set that straight. But this blog is about Ayla, so she should be offered the same respect anyone else here should. I offer this to the admins, if someone comes on here belittling a blogger for their opinion, provided they are tring to be constructive, then block that user from coming back for 1 week. If they come back and start all over again, block them for good. This is not about us, this is about a little girl who has been wronged and about justice for her.
