This is a guest submission I received anonymously. I know lately things have seemed to be more one sided on the blog without a post from Katie offering up a different perspective. I encourage anyone who has a theory, a question, a point they want to make, whatever to submit a post to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for submission. It can be posted anonymously, under a username, or under your own name just let me know beforehand. Don't worry about formatting or spellchecking or proper grammar, I can take care of that without altering the message. this blog is chock full of intuitive and intelligent minds. All perspectives are welcomed here and even if I or others don't agree with the opinion, we all should respect each other for their opinion and if we can't, we shouldn't be on this particular blog. Debate and discussion is normal, healthy, expected, and encouraged but by no means do I want anyone's voice silenced.
What if, let's play what if. (WARNING: This is all a story, it's not true.)
For the sake of this story, I am going to assume that Ayla died in the Violette Avenue home that night, with the three adults present. This is a story, purely speculation and pretend. But let's just say:
That the three adults in the home know what happened to Ayla. That one of them caused the injuries that killed Ayla. The other two were helpers in the cover up. So together, they decide to stay silent to protect the one. Of course, they also believe that they are protecting themselves as well. After all they did help cover up and nothing can be done for Ayla now, she's gone.
Subject 1 removes Ayla from the home and leaves to hide her body. Leaving Violette Avenue, subject one heads down Rangeway to Kennedy Memorial Drive and on to Washington Avenue. The other two, subject 2 and subject 3 are left at home to start the clean up process. When subject 1 returns, they continue to clean up as they discuss what to do next. This is not something they wanted to happen, but now that it has, they must come up with a story. This is when they decide that the only story that makes sense is if Ayla was kidnapped. There isn't much time. They agree to the kidnapping story as they continue to clean. They spend a good part of their night trying to rid the house of any evidence of Ayla's injuries and subsequent death. All the while, making sure they each have the same story to tell. They are counting on each other to stick to the same story.
It's time. Subject 1 calls 9-1-1 tries to tell the story, but panics and hangs up. The other two tell subject one to call again. This has to be done, there is no other way. Subject 1 tries again, but hangs up once more. 9-1-1 calls back, subject 1 tells them the story. It won't be long now, the police will be at the door. They discuss their story one more time, just to make sure they have it straight. They walk the house and make sure they have not left any tell tale signs.
They think they are all set. The investigators take control of the house. Almost three weeks later, the investigators have gone over the home with a fine toothed comb. There is nothing the investigators missed. They turn over their findings to the labs. Now, they just have to wait.
Six months have passed. No arrests. They are safe.
It's been more than a year. The three subjects are pretty confident that they have done everything right. They have convinced the other people around them, that a kidnapping happened and they are being persecuted in the media and by the bloggers. They have friends putting up flyers and billboards, helping to build a pretty picture of how they miss Ayla. Not all are so easily convinced.
There are many who do not believe in the subjects innocence. Information regarding the results of some of the investigative finds are put out in the media. Some from law enforcement, some from the family of Ayla herself. Investigative findings are not matching a kidnapping scenario. The adult subjects are starting to become nervous, but they assure each other that they will each stick to the story. They strongly feel if they all do that, none of them will be found out. They remind each other of what needs to be done to maintain the farce.
But, subject 2 and Subject 3 are reading what people are saying. They are nervous, they are sure the police know more than they have told them. When will law enforcement come for them? What if they are all arrested? It feels like playing russian roulette, wondering when the police will be on the doorstep. How can they know who will stick with the story. Subject 1 and Subject 3 discuss whether or not they can trust Subject 2 to keep silent. They are concerned that Subject 2 might cave in and say something. They don't trust Subject 2.
Subject 1 and Subject 3 come up with another foolproof plan. If law enforcement comes to the door, they will each turn in Subject 2, before Subject 2 has a chance to tell all. Surely, if Subject 1 and Subject 3 stick together, they will get away with it. Everyone will believe it was Subject 2 that committed the crime and they, Subject 1 and Subject 3 were duped into helping with the cover up. After all, they have friends and family that believe them. They will believe them again and stand by them. Surely it is better for one to take the fall and the others can walk?
If what we imagined here is what happened, it's only a matter of time before law enforcement is ready to make charges. We all know, when it comes to people who lie to protect their own skin, they won't worry about their cohorts skin. So, who will be the one to turn on the others? That's a question each of the three subjects should be asking themselves. After all, people can say what they will or won't do, but when their skin is on the line, who are they going to protect?
There is a saying, when you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas.
