I know I have been infrequent in my writing blog posts on Ayla's case or any other case but in light of recent events, I felt there were some things I needed to say as well as wanted to say.
For starters, I find Justin's arrested very curious to say the least. When the news first broke on United4Ayla.com I looked throughout the internet as well as Cumberland County's arrest sheet and could find no hint of it except on United4Ayla.com. It wasnt until the next day that it was in the news and online in other places. Anyone who is arrested and booked at the Cumberland County Jail has their arrest record on the website usually within a week of their arrest regardless of whether or not they bailed out. The police chief claimed it was a clerical error. I guess it could have been but I am noot buying it. Someone leaked the original unedited arrest log to U4A so if it was a clerical error how did it make it to the arrest log and then get deleted. If it had never made the arrest log then I would be more apt to say okay, maybe it was a clerical error. Whomever sent the unedited log into U4A knew that Justin's name was going to be scrubbed from it or else they could have just directed them to the website, right?
I also find it coincidental that an officer just happened to drive by to see Justin assault Courtney. Talk about good timing although it would not be uncommon for a police officer to be patrolling the area near the Holiday Inn By The Bay since it runs parallel to Congress St. and is very close to the Civic Center. We know Justin and Courtney had broken up, I am curious as to why they met. Was it to talk? I would love to know who initiated the meeting. Did Justin call Courtney to talk or did Courtney call Justin?
My thoughts on this, and my thoughts ONLY because I have no verification only my hunch to go on, is that IF Justin and/or Courtney DO know what happened to Ayla that night maybe Courtney went to LE after their break up and told them what she knew to save herself. Maybe Courtney agreed to wear a wire and meet Justin to talk. IF Justin was guilty, he certainly would think it was in his best interest to talk to Courtney to find out if she planned to talk or not. Maybe things got heated and once Justin grabbed Courtney, LE intervened in order to keep her safe. Maybe Justin grabbed her to see if she was wearing a wire?
OR, Maybe Courtney was the culprit and and Justin covered for her because he was in love with her and didn't want her to lose her son. Maybe now that they are not together Justin went to LE and agreed to meet Courtney wearing a wire. Maybe Justin was so angry that she had hurt Ayla that he grabbed her. In order to keep Courtney safe and not blow Justin's cover, a police officer happened upon the scene and removed Justin. Maybe they planned on tossing out the charge which was why they didn't want the charge to become public knowledge? Or maybe the whole scenario is an unrelated coincidence and neither are to blame?
As far as Jeff's comments that bloggers probably know more than he does, there is no conspiracy at least not with the bloggers here at J4A as they are all I can speak for. I have been given information from Jeff but as far as knowing the whole story, I can honestly say I do not because I am only hearing info from Jeff not from Justin's side and as far as I am concerned, only the person or persons responsible for what happened to Ayla really know the whole story. I have not released the information that was shared with me for a couple of reasons. The first and foremost reason being that it is not my place to share it. If LE wanted it released, they would have released it. If LE is okay with Jeff and Trista releasing it, then Jeff can do that and I will let him do it here because I want this blog to be well rounded and if Justin or Courtney or Elisha want to use this forum to release something here, they also have permission to do so. I do not want to be responsible for hindering the investigation.
I also have not released the information because I can not corroborate it. I do believe Jeff was given this information by LE. I don't think Jeff is involved in Ayla's disappearance at all, I do not know if Trista or others in her family are, I tend to believe that they aren't but I don't think Trista is 100% innocent in all of this. I do apologize that Jeff came across to some of you as taunting and acting as if he knows something you all don't know, because LE meets with him directly he of course is going to know things we don't know. I think his intentions were to get LE to act not to tease the readers here. If I am mistaken, then I apologize.
Initially, I had started this post the other day and it was entirely different. I was curious as to where people stand now? Over a year later do you still feel the same as you did during the first few months of Ayla's disappearance in regards to what happened to her and who is responsible or have things that transpired over the last 19 months changed your viewpoints? Do you think that with Justin's arrest that it might get the ball rolling? Anyone convicted of a domestic abuse charge is prohibited from owning firearms if Justin is innocent will he spill what he knows in order to try to get the charge dropped to simple assault? Or in the grand scheme of things, is taking a domestic abuse charge a better alternative as opposed to a murder charge or a conspiracy to commit murder charge? Or is Justin just one really unlucky guy who can't catch a break to save his life and really innocent in all of this?
