Food For Thought-Just Concerned For Ayla-Guest Submission

Not sure if anyone has brought this up but I wonder why the father's side was shown the slides first and then the mother had to fight to see them. Was the MSP waiting to see if anyone would speak? And then the mother decides to wait another 9 months to speak about what she saw.

 Ayla is out there and with the waiting game everyone is playing it seems time is ticking and everyone is playing like this is a game. When are all the pieces going to fit and she is found? Maybe never at this rate because it seems now everyone is waiting for the other person to make the next move and so many have not given up but the families and the MSP are not thinking straight.

I never heard of any police department putting out evidence in a crime , unless it is pictures of a person in a camera shot, and see if anyone will speak. I know maybe they may not have anything else to fall on but playing with the families emotions enough for them to have a meeting to release what they have been shown as far as the slides is way out there. I am betting they wish that they had not done this now and could take it all away. That is why we have laws so they can be followed and now they are throwing out slides that could lead the family to believe that Ayla is no longer with us and they just sit back and hope for the best.

 In 3 weeks Trista is going to pour her heart out to the public but whoever did this may not feel she deserves to know what happen and may be laughing in her face. I feel this needs to end and go back to the MSP for them to continue their case and quit just throwing up bread crumbs that may lead no where. We have all followed this because we want Ayla found and for her to have justice but maybe she is alive and all of this is for nothing. Someone knows and that is what everyone needs, is this person to speak up and quit putting out more info that leads to people getting more angry. It is not doing any good putting out false hopes and leads away maybe from the truth. I think in 3 weeks we will not know anymore then we do now unless someone speaks up for her. Pressure may work but it also may lead away from the truth

I received this via email today and thought it brought up something that no one else really has brought up. We have all expressed how we felt about the upcoming release of information and I for one have been quite vocal behind the scenes to Jeff and others about how uneasy I am about it all. This post brings up some good discussion questions and hits on some things that I would like to hear others views on. 

Thank you Just Concerned for Ayla for your email and be willing to submit something.

  3. Thank you quest for your thoughtful questions.

    It brings up many things I've thought about.
    I too think it's a pretty risky ploy.
    I can well understand Trista wanting answers and movement in the investigation, ..I can.
    However, I do not believe that this will provide the outcome that Trista wants.
    Yes it brings awareness to Ayla. It lets MSP know that the family wants answers.
    *If* this case was brought to the AG. It's very apparent they don't believe they have the evidence to win a court case.
    I don't believe it will have any effect on the AG.

    *If* this evidence release is meant to push and put pressure on someone, I don't think it will have that effect either. I personally see it as having the opposite effect.
    I see it as causing even further animosity between Ayla's maternal and paternal families.
    If MSP don't or won't comment on the release. Many won't believe it or accept it as fact.
    I don't see it as leaving Trista in a good light.

    Ayla, where is she at in all of this?
    That's just a few of my thoughts.

    1. Remember how I talked about lashing out? I think Trista is very angry about everything and that is as it should be. I think what she is doing is lashing out and wanting to cause who she thinks is responsible for Ayla being missing some of the pain she is feeling. That to I would think is normal, after all her and Justin are not together. At this point they probably don't like one another very much. They can't console one another at this point.If they had remained together we might see a different reaction from her, and Justin also.There may have not even been a missing Ayla. I think think we need to try to use a little understanding in Trista actions as she is reacting out of a lot of hurt and frustration for Justice. If we hurt because of Ayla gone missing multiply that many times fot Trista.

    2. Oh, I'm positive Trista is more than angry.
      I have no idea of the anguish and heartache she has had to deal with. However I can well imagine.

  4. I wrote this to Tori hoping people would realize that we need to step back and think that we do not deserve to hear about the slides. The police said "that they were what a mother should know" and I may not have quoted this but yall know what I mean. They were meant for her and not for us. It is her choice who she tells but for Jeff to get on here and start up like he was so important to have info on what happened. Ok Jeff what happened because slides are pictures and still may not point to a person. Maybe I would change my mind if I was going to listen but I will be aol Sept 23rd till 30th because I have sit on a capital murder trial of a 6 week old boy that was murdered and why would people want to hear that info besides from being on a jury is beyond me. I will be lighting 2 candles each day, one for Ayla and one for Trista. Why can't Trista go back to raising awareness that Ayla is still missing. She may not be alive, as what has been said, but she is still missing and even if someone is found guilty they may still not tell where she is. I would think they would step up and ask for a lighter sentence in exchange for info that would lead to her being found. I would want that first and conviction second. I am sorry but that empty hole in her heart will never go away and with Ayla not being found would make that hole even bigger. People have not given up on finding Ayla so I wish her whole family, and I am saying all of them if they were not involved in her missing, to come together to spread the word that Ayla has not been found. Kyron Horman's family have not given up and had a search this weekend. I know Trista just had a baby but the whole family was not pregnant so why are they not out there spreading awareness. For sure they are not going to give up on her ever being found and just want whoever did this to go to prison and just walk away. Or are they out there doing awareness and I have not heard because nothing is out there for anyone to read. I do read of others doing things but all Jeff ever saying is "Everyone just wait until Sept 23rd when Trista releases the info on the slides." Maybe he needs to have a walk or a balloon release for Ayla or does nobody really want her found. I know people do but the whole family has not spoken for her all this year. It hurts me to know if my family did this I would think something was wrong. We fight as a family for each other. I will pray for something other the info being released. I work overnight and sometimes do not get back on here every day but I hope I opened some eyes and people will step back from Sept 24th and 25th and maybe pass out fliers or post on facebook that Ayla is still missing. We all want justice for her and someone to pay for it but for people to seems excited about the upcoming press release, which I know they are excited thinking someone will be arrested, I feel the police would be there standing beside Trista for one or they would be release the info themselves. I am not saying I am not backing Trista either. I really am not taking sides. It is not my place to do that. All I am here for is for Ayla and for her to have justice nothing more or nothing less. Where are you Ayla? You can not speak for yourself and someone can.

    Thanks

    1. I am also not pointing at any person, blog or facebook page. I feel this is nation wide. You see some families do the same thing when their child is missing or some are out there everyday searching or raising awareness. I have never been there but have lost a granddaughter when she was 5 months old due to an accident so I know about the hole in the heart. It never gets smaller but I feel I can not blame anyone or question why. Every step you take you wish they were here but it is something you get a grip on early on and thank God every day that I had her my life and never wish she had not happen or she died. God has a plan and if though we plan our life sometimes his plan comes into play and our plan ends. My daughter, which was her mother, told me the other day that she will not grieve until her deathbed over her daughter because it is hard to grieve over someone that brought you so much joy. She was her life and when she was gone, my daughter lost it for awhile but realized that she was her world and she did not cry when she was alive and wanted to remember her for what she brought to her life and then she had another daughter and they make up songs about her even though her youngest never knew her sister. Everyone grieves different but sometimes grieving is not the answer. I cry a lot even after 10 years next month. I cry for my daughter not getting to raise her and all the family get togethers she is not at, which we do every month for the other 7 grandkids to see more often. Your life does change but make their life worth every thing they meant to you. Donate or do something to change another child life. What you can not do for them do for someone else. Do the same for Ayla if you feel you can not do anything else and want to help. If you can not do awareness or searches, do something foe another child. I guess that is the main reason I do this for Ayla because I can not do it for Krisstine and hopefully we all will have an answer soon.

    2. I really think we do deserve hear about the slides because I believe no prosecution will go forward and bring justice for Ayla unless Ayla's body is found or somebody with knowledge realizes that the blood proves Ayla was hurt in the house before she was "abducted" and she has passed. I think finding her body is not in the cards. I think the AG is stalling about an indictment because they have no body.

      If those slides prove that Ayla was harmed in that house, it may be the only way to get the case to move forward. Someone who had been holding back information about the night of the 16th because he/she could not believe that anything bad happened to Ayla, will come forward and tell what he/she knows when knowledge of the amount of blood is made public.

      LE can't release this information themselves because it might cause problems in any future prosecution. Yet, LE wants the information out there and if it comes from a private citizen, and LE acts as if the mother couldn't be stopped from releasing it, it's a win-win.

      LE may also want the info out there in the hope that public pressure on the people in that house will bring forth a response from one of the people who may not be able to stand the pressure, especially if that one is innocent. That innnocent person will not want their work or school or friends to think badly of them and will give up information. Public pressure can sometimes work miracles.

      You are not on sitting on a jury that is hearing this case, you have no right to see the slides or hear what is on them. That would compromise the prosecutions case. They don't need to convince us of anything they need to convince the AG and a Grand jury . We want to know because we are curious as to what they have.If they wanted any information out there they would leak it through one of their own so they could control it and the direction it pointed.Do you really feel they are incompetent to the point that they need our help making the decisions?

    6. I believe that if law enforcement did not want this information revealed to the public by Trista, they would somehow make that known or initiate an injunction (gag order) to prevent it. It could very well be that they want Trista to release this information. By law enforcement's comments, they do not have to take responsibility for the release of this information if they claim they have nothing to do with it. Regarding the search for Kyron yesterday and today, the search involves human remains detection (HRD) dogs; Desiree believes her son is deceased and is searching for his remains. I sicnerely hope that Ayla receives justice soon.

    7. I meant, 'sincerely".....

    8. I wish people would contrast Desiree's continual search for her son with that of Justin's non-action for his daughter.

      From the time Kyron "disappeared" and even to this very day, his mother has been the most pro-active of parents never abandoing the search for her missing child.

      What courage Desiree' showed in placing posters all around Terri Horman's home town asking Teri "Where is Kyron?" Terri hunkers down and refuses to say anything. Her family supports her.

      Now, the usual cry is "All people with missing children react differently. Not everybody grieves the same or shows the same anxiety or engages the media and the public." Myth! If they are innocent parents in their child's disappearance, yes they all act the same in the basics.

    9. Anonymous September 1, 2013 at 8:35 PM, it is also interesting that no matter what Desiree Young does to search for answers in her son, Kyron's, disappearance, and the silence on Terri Horman's part, there will ALWAYS be a small group of Terri advocates who will do anything and everything to bash Desiree Young. Just read some of the comments on here (keeping in mind that one individual, Sandi Lessman aka "thatkewlgirl" is known to create multiple OregonLive alias'). Sickening, isn't it?

  5. Isn't it funny, more maybe tragic, that no matter what Trista does she is wrong. She just wants the media attention. She is going to put impediments in the way of finding an alive Ayla. She will just bring more grief to the people who managed to lose her baby in the first place. She will put Justin on public trial without giving him due course of the law.

    That "wicked welfare woman", who really is the cause of all that's happened to Ayla cannot do anything but wreak havoc. Her addictions inadvertently caused Ayla to go missing. If Trista had been a good mother, she would never have left Ayla in Justin's care and opened the way for the abduction.

    Some of us can't even acknowledge Trista's deep feelings of grief for her missing baby. Oh, she didn't suffer; she just likes to fake the tears for TV. Trista is really not like most normal mothers. She really doesn't feel things the way an ordinary women would.

    We can dismiss any information that Ayla was happy and well-loved with her mother as that is all Reynolds propaganda. Justin after all, had to take Ayla because Trista was such a lousy mother.

    Some wonder why Trista deserves any answers from the DiPietros at all; they've been very fortcoming to Trista and answered all her questions already. Whoops. Evidently not, unless you count Justin's text messages to Trista about Ayla...verbal punches to the solar plexus when her child was missing!

    And then there's the DiPietro's stony silence for over a year and a half. Strange comfort for a mother who wants answers, but Trista deserves no better.

    Yes, she does deserve better.

    No matter if she has three babies with three different sperm donors, Trista is entitled to some answers.
    No matter if she has lousy taste in men, she warrants the knowledge of what happened to her baby girl.

    No matter if Trista had another baby and has, according to some,resolutely refused to better herself with a job or with an education, she deserves to find out where Ayla is.

    Trista, has been shown slides, that prove, allegely, that her baby is no longer alive, but according to some she shouldn't do anything about it. She shouldn't be going public with this information. After all, some of us believe that Trista only lives for the chance to bash Justin and she is dishonoring Ayla when she uses her baby to get even.

    Trista should just shut her big mouth! Or not.

    1. No she shouldn't shut up, she shouldn't be encouraged to act unwisely either.People talk how they Trust believe what LE and the AG has said and found for evidence. Yet they don't trust their judgement when to act on what they have. To me it is simple in that if you really believe them and have faith in their findings, then have faith they know when to bring charges. If they are not bringing charges yet there is a good reason. I would say their faith in LE and the AG is very shaky.

    8. Where do so many people get the impression that law enforcement (including prosecutor) is an authority to which the people are beholden and not the opposite- that law enforcement is a public agency answerable to the people? If Trista does not feel Ayla's case is being handled properly, if she believes that evidence exists for prosecution but for reasons we don't yet know, prosecutors aren't moving forward, why shouldn't she speak out?

      I don't think releasing the evidence is going to damage the case because... think about it. What you or I think has no bearing on what happens in the courtroom when the case is tried. If one of us is in the jury pool, we will not be selected as jurors if we are found to be prejudiced.

      At least two of the three in the house that night, have already seen blood evidence so there's no surprise element in questioning in play either.

      LE is not some magical, all-powerful entity with all the answers. They are accountable to the public. And if the public is not happy with their performance in any particular matter, of course the public or any individual member of the public has the right, arguably the moral obligation, to speak up.

      Delete
    9. Some feel it is a mistake I don't know how many. The law enforcement do work for us, I am for letting them do their job. She does have the right and no one is stopping her. They may advise against it as not a smart thing to do. I don't know if it will do any damage, both sides must know what LE said. If they told Trista something they didn't have proof of that is their problem. If they asked her not to say anything about something they did not have solid proof then she should honor that.They are the only people with all the answers they can prove at this point. If they can't win a case or prove who is responsible Trista you or I can not force them to prosecute before they feel they are ready.

  6. Lee says: September 1, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    "In fairness I want to say that I believe many who are perceived as DiPietro supporters are not. To my thinking they are Ayla supporters who feel there has not been evidence shown to support the idea that Justin is guilty of anything. To these people I have respect."
    _____________________________

    I often don't agree with your comments, Lee. But I sincerely appreciate this one.

    There are some of us that are simply reluctant to jump on the Justin-did-it bandwagon. Consequently, we've been called "skirts", willfully ignorant, a disgrace to Ayla, and more.

    I personally don't care much for the DiPietros. But that is neither here nor there. I cannot conclude they harmed Ayla simply because I don't like them.

    Anyway, thanks again for your comment. Ayla deserves the truth.

    Nothing but the truth.

    1. Am I a DiPietro supporter??
      I don't see it that way at all. However, I can see why some might think so.
      I believe that Ayla is alive. I believe that she could have been abducted.
      Therefore I don't think any of the DiPietro's or Courteny hurt Ayla.
      I'm sure my comments reflect that. How could they reflect otherwise?

      Even if that was not my believe, I haven't seen the evidence to conclude Ayla is deceased. Muchless who was the cause of that.

      Delete
    2. Just curious...Anon 1. Will evidence of much blood cleaned up in the house change your mind about Ayla being alive?

      If it doesn't change your mind, do you believe Ayla is still alive with her abductor?

      What is your idea of a good abduction which would pretty well seal the fact that Ayla's alive?

      I'm not being snarky, although, I'm sure I won't be believed. I really want to know.

      Can you handle the conflicting ideas that a criminal abductor (which is what this person who kidnapped Ayla would be in the eyes of the law) would be a kind and caring caretaker, yet at the same time, criminally mentally disturbed? Because, to stalk a child, and to abduct her from under her parent's closed eyes during the night, doesn't, imo, speak of such a good, mentally adjusted abductor who intends a good, safe life for Ayla.

      Justin, evidently, believes that this benevolent, but misguided abductor, is the type who has Ayla. But I honestly don't know how he came to this conclusion. He didn't say.

      Delete
    3. For me to believe that Ayla is deceased, it most likely will take LE confirming that she is.
      That being said BEFORE hearing what Trista has to say.

      I've read everything, heard everything that everyone else has. Yet I still have this sense--feeling-whatever you want to call it, that Ayla is alive. What would you like me to do with that?? Understand I have questioned that so many times.

      I don't know if she was abducted. There isn't a lot else for me to conclude, since I feel that she is alive. I'm left with, abducted, given away, or sold.

      My feeling that Ayla is alive is not all I base my opinion on. It's MSP indecisive statements, searches that have lead to nothing. K9 dogs, cadaver dogs, nothing. No arrest, no suspects, no one ruled in or out.
      No confirming amounts of blood found at the DiPietro's home.
      Like McCausland said, it's a culmination of everything.
      I haven't heard any FACTS that make me believe Ayla is deceased.

      If Ayla was abducted obviously the person or persons are not of a stable mind.
      I'm not going to what may or may not be if abducted. Not going there.
      As for Justin, I understand why a parent would want to believe that whoever abducted Ayla is treating her well.

    3. To answer your question "It is food for thought". I have lost a granddaughter too. It was an accident. I know how it feels for the news media to suck the breath out of you wanting each piece of you to have a story. We watched as the media lined the street after the accident wanting a story but was pushed back by the police and later on, after they found out it was not news worthly, they packed up and moved on to the next dead child that may be big news. In Dallas that summer, a lot of children died from being left in cars but that was not the case in ours. I hate to see what will happen in this as Trista may feel that the news will help but if they see nothing in it, they will publish the story and move on if they feel it will not be news worthy also and then she will still be left with nothing else to try with. Awareness of Ayla still missing to me is the key to having someone arrested but that is her choice and I am not argueing this but it is not something I will watch because of the heartbreak of it. I can not watch a mother plea for help in an arrest with the police standing there doing nothing. It breaks my heart really. That is why I said I will not be watching blogs and seeing how people react because some will feed off the slides and what they tell and but I am hoping for a better outcome and some go out there and push for more searches to find Ayla and then hopefully that is when justice will come for her. Sorry if you took this wrong, not everybody can write their feelings down for everyone to understand them but I was just wanting to get people to understand that do not look at this as it will bring closure to this case because I feel it will not. And I pray for Trista to spread more awareness and to be more open about her involvement in them because that is what more want to see. Seeing a grieving mother pushes people to tears and want to help more. A mother out for revenge may come across as not as caring about where her daughter is and some may turn their back. These are my opinions and mine alone. I am like a lot on here, I just want to write them down and put them out there so maybe people will open up their too. Some may be the key to finding Ayla with their ideas and I pray that there is one person that will have all the answers but until then we will continue to blog our beliefs and answers we have and sit and wait. May Trista get her answers with the press meetings because it is never too late.

    I guess this is one reason I wrote my feelings down after reading this and knowing other efforts can be done to help find your child then what is fixing to happen. I know his mother has done countless things that she may wish she had not done either but to me this is the only way you can have justice and that is find your child first and then arrest the person that caused it second. Without the child the charges may not have the outcome you wanted. Waiting is hard but them walking away scott free would be harder.

    1. How long must the parent wait until the child is found? Bodies do not last forever to tell the details of the death. Is there a time limit? While waiting to find a body in the Maine woods, which may never happen, other evidence must be considered. We haven't heard it yet, but perhaps there is evidence which can equal that of the body being found. A great loss of blood by Ayla in that house tells a story.

      What are the counteless things Desiree' has ever done that she regrets besides allowing her dear little son to return to the house of his dad and stepmother, when he begged not to go back?

      I imagine this is what haunts Desiree', not the fact that she has been pro-active in trying to focus the limelight on whom Desiree'and LE consider the chief suspect. I don't think she regrets searching continuously for her son's body so some measure of justice will be enacted for him and her.

    2. Nene, what "countless things" has Desiree Young done that she may regret?! Not being able to take the day off from work in Medford and drive 5-6 hours to Kyron's science fair? Not knowing that Kyron would be harmed by his stepmother on the very day he was supposed to visit his mother for the weekend? Actually, Desiree feels that law enforcement already has enough evidence to arrest Terri Horman for Kyron's disappearance. But, she can't control what they will do. Arrest or not, Desiree still wants to find her son. Even if Kyron is never found, he still deserves justice. I believe that Trista feels and wants the same for Ayla.

  9. If Ayla is alive with an abductor we still need to look for her deceased or alive.
    If she was taken from the house by Phoebe and passed to people on cool st. We still need to look for Ayla.
    If she died in that house on Violette Ave. We still need to look for Ayla.
    LE has ruled no one in no one out. We still need to look for Ayla.
    Some people here think Ayla is still alive and we have not ruled that possibility out. We are still looking for Ayla why do people have such a problem with people clinging to hope?I just don't understand your thinking will it make you feel better if everyone here just says ok you win Ayla is definitely dead. Lets have a funeral tomorrow and stop looking will that please you?

    1. Actually Lance and Justin have already had Ayla's funeral. In the church where their grandparents were buried from. No reporters were allowed at the funeral. Except a couple who promised to ask no questions. Oh, and it was called a vigil. it looked like a funeral. A formal goodbye to Ayla , at any rate.

      It was a perfect opportunity for Justin to speak out for his daughter, the media would have been all over the vigil as they were with the neighborhood vigils and the events Trista attended.

      Justin, as always is afraid of the media. He cannot endure it even if it means PR for his missing daughter.

      See, I called her missing. I guess I mnust have a sliver of hope!

    2. I would hope you would as if she were to be found alive as Lee has said it would be a win win. If some of the people here are not convinced of the information release on the 24th I think some of their reasons will be the snarky comments they have received. I mean how can they come along side of someone that knocks them every chance they get. Who knows maybe everyone will believe it but just not like the snarky people. As snarky as they are they probably don't care how people feel about them, after all they are not here for a popularity contest just to sell their theory and rip someones theory down that doesn't agree with theirs.

    4. I think it is human nature to hope. In the face of unsolved crimes, many are left with only that. Because the alternative is too painful to accept. Who wants to believe evil exists? Who wants to believe someone could hurt or kill a child? I unfortunately do not think AYLA is alive, but that does not negate the fact I want her found or that I believe there will be justice.

    5. I know it is so refreshing to talk to people that have their own belief of what happened, yet are willing to let people have their own belief. I know there are a lot of odds she is not alive and will come to a point where I may accept it with more proof. Such as an arrest or LE to be more forthcoming.

      I was there and disgusted by the people who vilify Justin every day but yet go up to him and hug and send well wishes that night. A showboat for the cameras. Yes no media included in the church that is not odd it is a separation of church and state. Media as involved before and after. TLLOM handing out info packets

  10. Dana, I believe Ayla is dead but I don't have a problem with others clinging to hope. I suspect there are others who feel as I do and likewise have no problem with you or anyone else believing she is or might be alive. One of the problems here is generalization. If someone posts about "Justin supporters" or "Trista supporters," it's kinda murky which exact posters they're referring to. With the caveat that this comment too is subject to misinterpretation due to generalization, here it is: some posters deny everything that doesn't fit their assertion of what reality is whether it comes from a family member, McCausland, a newspaper, a blog, or an eye witness. There have been some posts that come across as downright delusional due to their insistence on a reality not supported by the sparse facts we do know. And when someone posts something critical of those posters, other posters seem to get their dander up, thinking they are being swept in by a broad brush.

    There are a lot of sincere people posting, people with whom I disagree, but who seem to be relying on logic and common sense to interpret this developing situation. Then there are the few who seem to be pushing an agenda at all costs. I think this is what is causing a lot of friction.
