On May 22nd James Graham was arrested and subsequently charged with attempted kidnapping and assault. On May 29th I received this anonymous tip from Ayla's Website:
"has anyone made a connection between James Graham and Ayla? I heard he used to hang with Justin and was in town...."
John P. did some research and (with some help from friends) found that James Graham's brother, Scott Graham, went to Waterville High School with Lance and Justin Dipietro. John P. also uncovered Facebook friend associations linking the Graham's to Elisha, Lance, Justin and Courtney Roberts.
James Graham had also lived in the Waterville area and graduated from Waterville High School. In response to my inquiry, a lead detective on Ayla's case informed me: "...to date, there is no information connecting Graham with the Ayla’s case" and the State Police has told the Associated Press/Media outlets that the recent incident with Graham was a "random act".
To say nothing of criminal profiling, how many "random acts" against children has James Graham committed? Where was Graham on December 17th 2011? Was he "in town" as the anonymous tipster suggested? Had James Graham been to the Dipietro’s house? Had he met Ayla or was he shown photos of Ayla?
In any case, an implied kidnapping scenario of Ayla does not account for the scheme of blood found on the Dipietro’s property, but there are too many coincidences to ignore and I believe it deserves a closer look. Maybe the time is right for the Dipietro’s and/or supporters to be a part of the solution..
