Exclusive

Still no exclusive from Justin Di Pietro, Elisha, Courtney, or Phoebe. What do you think will happen after the 24th? Will the so called Waterville 4 remain silent, or will a lawsuit be filed against Trista and family?


Either way I would not want to be in anyone's shoes, that is involved in this revelation about to be released. It is easy to sit on the side lines and say go for it Trista you are right, or remain silent Justin you owe no explanation to anyone if you have done nothing wrong.

I have no doubt people's hearts are still breaking over the disappearance of Ayla. Trista has a new son and is getting her life back in some kind of order. That does not mean there is not still a void in her heart and life left by the loss of Ayla.

Justin still seems to be continually getting into trouble with the law. Things in that aspect don't seem to bother him much. We don't know how he is coping with the loss of Ayla because he is not very involved with the local media, except for legal problems.

Elisha and Phoebe are very quiet also, they have an attorney so that may be the reason for that.Courtney also very quiet as she has been from the beginning. She has distanced herself from Justin, one would hope if she has any information she would be talking to LE.

There have been no recent releases by LE on how the case is progressing. Their reaction is a lot like Justin's no reaction. No announcements of searches going on or areas eliminated. No one ruled in or out, no persons of interest, or suspects.

There has been numerous photo's of Ayla, Justin, Trista, Janet Mills, and McCausland. With this post only one, the one person that matters the most in all of this.

  1. Dana...I have no idea what will happen after the 24th and 25th. I would hope there would be a response from LE indicating confirmation or denial of Trista's recollection of the evidence.

    If LE does not tender such a response, it would indicate to me Justin's involvement in Ayla's fate. Also, if LE does not refute and/or correct Trista's account of the January 3 meeting, the DiPietros will be at risk of serious danger. I believe the DiPietros are in danger now. Remember...windows at 29 Violette were smashed with a bat relatively early in the case.

    If there are inaccuracies in Trista's account of the meeting, LE has a responsibility to set the record straight.

    5. In all actuality there have been many people deeply hurt throughout the past 18 to 19 months. Many, many innocent people. Not by fist, but the tongue.

    7. Who have I read mean, nasty, hurtful, spiteful, disparaging comments about, that I'm sure were extremely painful and hurt deeply? The list is long;

      Trista, Jeff, members of the Reynolds family, Justin, members of the DiPietro family, Courtney Roberts, the Tudela family, Angela Harry, members of TLLOM.
      Persons who have spent long hours and hard work making Websites, Blogs and Facebook pages for Ayla. Certain groups that have formed to bring awareness to Ayla.
      As well as people who comment at the various websites, blogs and facebook pages.

      Who of all of them are guilty in the disappearance of Ayla? Most likely 1 or 2.
      So yeah, a lot of innocent people have been hurt, out of pure spitefulness.

      I intend to sit this one out. I suggest you consider doing the same.

      Trista will present her evidence, hold a press conference, and then all hell will break loose.

  2. Personally not very worried about the Dipietros being in danger. .. . really, I worry about where and what happened to Ayla. If Trista releasing this information put the Dipietros in danger so be it. . .. they deserve whatever comes their way. Maybe if they would speak up things would be different, but staying quiet and not denying or admitting anything is stupid on their part . . . . especially with another grand daughter in that house!

    3. At this point in the whole mess the Dipietros either step up to the plate or take the KARMA that is coming their way, who protected or worried about poor Ayla while she was suffering. Mckeekitty think what you want I and will think what I want, but after two years of watching those 4 walk free and live their lives, I have had enough of the people that are protecting them. They don't deserve protection at this point. If they had come clean from the beginning or even begged the "kidnappers" to bring this precious child home I may have some simpathy for they, but after two years, they get what they deserve. They didn't protect Ayla and they don't deserve to be protected. .. .KARMA!

    4. I will say it again. *IF* LE does not counter Trista's assertions that Justin harmed Ayla, I will take that as a strong indicator that Trista's recollections of the January 3 meeting are accurate.

      So far, that appears to be the case. LE has not responded to Trista's assertions that Ayla's blood was found all over the place.

      So in all actuality, we're on the same page...

      Delete
    5. Anon 5:53. The Dipietro's can't beg for the kidnappers to bring Ayla home. Kidnappers never took Ayla and the Dipietro's already know that. The Dipietro's are cowards, who use others and have done everything in their lives with "lies". It's what they learned, it's what they know and eventually, those lies will catch up with them. Lies always do.

  3. If they had even worried half about Ayla that you are worrying about their wellbeing Ayla may still be here.

  4. Nice post Dana.

    I don't really expect the DiPietro's or Courtney to make any statements about what Trista releases on the 24th. I wish they would, but don't expect it.

    I do not expect the DiPietro's or Courtney to file a law suit against Trista or her family.
    Contrary to what others believe, I don't see that they could.
    Trista is revealing *her interpretation* of what she was shown and or told by MSP. I don't think you can sue someone over their interpretation of something.
    The only thing they can dispute is the evidence itself.
    I think they'd have to take the up with MSP, and MSP is not confirming what Trista is revealing.
    So I don't think they have any recourse, as far as what Trista is revealing.
    So I disagree with those saying that if they don't demand a retraction, or sue, this makes them look guilty.

    The latest I know of from S. McCausland about the investigation:

    "No one has been eliminated as a suspect," McCausland told CNN. Police have been careful not to name anyone a suspect and have warned against speculation.

    The investigation remains "full and active" and more searches are expected, McCausland said.

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/13/justice/maine-missing-toddler-ayla-reynolds/index.html

    ...I agree with their warning, not to speculate on who is a suspect and who isn't.

    1. The Dipietro's won't say anything. They are too afraid of exposing their lies and deceitful ways. They think if they keep their mouths shut the truth will never be told. I think others know and that they will speak. It may be a long time coming, but the murderers of Ayla will see justice done. I'm sure of it.

    2. A1...it is my understanding that Trista's intention in releasing the details of the January 3 meeting is to "press for prosecution." The AG won't take action based upon public pressure.

      Public outrage puts the DiPietros in danger.

      If LE doesn't respond to the release, I'm sure vigilantes will act.

      That is one hell of a calculated risk for LE to take IF there are inaccuracies in Trista's account.

    6. The other part was innocent people could be hurt. Which if there was a crowd there, and a fight broke out an innocent bystander or child could be hurt. That seems to be the mentality in all this you think if people are against the release and siding with the state, then they are a Justin supporter. On the contrary some people are for Liberty and Justice for all. Our judicial system may not be perfect, but it is better than the alternative. Maybe you would love to see someone hurt by a mob, well if one comes for you think about it, you get what you deserve we need no system where you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Only popularity contests.

    8. I don't know why anyone would assume vigilantes will act on the Dipietro's. Most people in this country were outraged at the Casey Anthony verdict and vigilantes didn't act. Many people were outraged at the George Zimmerman verdict and vigilantes didn't act.

      My hope is that releasing this information will cause someone who knows what happened to come forward. I hope it makes life very uncomfortable for the people who were in the house that night. LE has stated they know more about what happened to Ayla then they're saying. Someone needs to come clean.

  6. Wasnt it stated that Phoebe owns a gun? Theres their protection.The Dipietros have plenty of options to counter Trista's interviews, and the evidence, if they choose not to..then so be it.

They can pretend to go ahead with their lives, but they best be always looking over their shoulder, because "we"(the public) are watching. We won't stop speaking up for Ayla, even though the Dipietro family has never even tried to speak up for her. Sick family!

    6. "...and the liklihood of success". Hmmm. Bet this is paramount with the AG. If they are not positive that a jury will convict from their evidence, they're not going forward.

      After Susan Powell's sons were killed by her EX, who has always been the #1 suspect in her death, the Utah LE involved admitted they had blood evidence and other evidence that he, the Ex, was guilty. And yet he was allowed to leave the state, go to another, get unsupervised visits with his sons. We all know the tragic results of the Utah LE/prosecutrs timidity in bringing him to trial. The two little bous are dead at his hands.

  10. At least Trista is doing SOMETHING! That's more than Justin has ever done for his daughter. He has no love or caring in his body. He could care less about Ayla or anyone, except himself. All he cares about is his own skin. That's been obvious from day one. He knows exactly where Ayla is, he put her there. He had his "vigil" (funeral) at church for Ayla and moved on with his life. His only worry is who will talk, what will they say? He needs good swift kick in the a$$ and his mother should have done that year ago. He's no father, he's barely a man.

  11. I feel sorry for those who have trusted and believed Justin. You can close your eyes to the possibilities, but sooner or later the truth will be known. You will get to see how Justin used the woman he slept with and how he used YOU, too. Unfortunately, Ayla suffered because of his abuses toward woman.

  12. OT: It is being reported on U4A that Trista tried communicating with Courtney Roberts when Justin was arrested for assault, and that Courtney wanted nothing to do with Trista. From the Portland Press:

    After DiPietro was charged with domestic-violence assault stemming from an incident in Portland in which he allegedly shoved Roberts, Reynolds tried calling Elisha DiPietro.

    "I thought by reaching out to her and talk to her and see where I'm coming from, mom to mom, but that failed to happen. She just doesn't want to talk to me at all," Reynolds said. "She was one of the last people to see my daughter. I just have questions about what Ayla's last few hours were like."

      And the issue becomes more critical when it addresses Trista's recent statements re: evidence.

      There is something way off about all this. If Ayla's blood was found on Justin's shoes and in his vehicle, why no arrest? Why would Maine spend $600K plus looking for a toddler that they knew from jump street perished in the home? Why is Ayla still classified as missing and not a homicide victim? Why won't MSP react to Trista's statements regarding the evidence she was shown? What gives with showing Alex and his mother the evidence but not Courtney? Why was the trip to Machiasport kept under covers for four months? Why doesn't Robert Fortier chime in?

    7. They do not have a body, no one is talking. They don't know which of the three (four) did anything. Those removed from the incident, but know about the "acident" and the disposal, all are not talking and probably won't talk.

      Unless one of them not involved, but knows can "trade" info for a lighter sentence in some other crime, i.e CR talking so her sister gets a lighter sentence. If that is even done.

      Blood on someone's shoes merely means that person was at the scene. That person could have stepped in it while the clean-up was going on. Blood in the truck does indicate that Ayla was in the truck for disposal. Or maybe blood was tracked into the truck from the house. Was anything found in CR's car?

      The ones involved either know or think it was an "accident". And it won't happened again. Just an one-time bad incident. They see no reason for anybody to go to prison for something unpremeditated. After all, it could happen to anybody.

      I'd like to know what about the "accident" could not be reported.

      If it wasn't exactly an "accident", say, if it was neglect, the people involved still wouldn't have reported it. Ditto for abuse. And that probably couldn't be proven at this late date, even if they found the body.

      Okay, all of the above... if Ayla is NOT living in health and happiness with some kind and caring savior, but at the bottom of an unused well somewhere in Maine.

      This will go to a cold case. But the heat around the DiPietros and even close friends and relatives covering for them, will be intense for sometime.

      Delete
    8. I'd like to know what kind of accident couldn't be reported as well, especially with a 25K life insurance policy on Ayla, it seems to me Justin was just waiting for an accident to happen, a potentially fatal accident.

      Only things I can think of are Ayla ingested illegal drugs or was "unintentionally" beaten to death, both would win Justin a murder charge. But why would anyone, Tudela's included, protect a drug dealer/child beater?

      Courtney's chance to make a deal for Briana is over. Briana got the deal of her life, and no arrests have been made, ergo no deal for Courtney. She still has a chance to save herself, however, letting it go this long, I doubt she would get any thing as sweet as Briana's deal.

      I agree. I think they are simply not sharing their hand in what they think because to do so could compromise their investigation. It is probably a lot easier, and more desirable, to talk to people who might know things when you haven't publicly broadcast your suspicions of what went down.

      "I think they are simply not sharing their hand in what they think because to do so could compromise their investigation. It is probably a lot easier, and more desirable, to talk to people who might know things when you haven't publicly broadcast your suspicions of what went down."
      ______

      I totally agree. Ayla's case continues to be called "an active and ongoing investigation." As such, it is likely standard LE protocol not to publically rule out anyone.

      Hope you are well, Scout.

    9. I am well, thanks, mckeekitty.

      The little MSP says seems to say quite a bit or nothing at all in this case depending on how you look at it. It would be nice if we didn't have to analyze their statements and read between the lines but that is what we're left doing. For Ayla's sake, I hope they know what they are doing.

      OT - have you seen or heard anything locally about the guy in FL who was brought to authorities attention as a suspect in the case of Molly Bish? It seemed rather promising a while ago and Molly deserves justice.

      I fear Molly's case has gone stone cold.

      At least Molly's remains were recovered, and the Bish family has closure.

      I also agree with this and I also believe that if LE had never said "we believe the 3 are not telling all they know and abduction did not happen" this case may have possible been solved by now. By putting suspicion on those 3 from early on, I think that may have made them calm up as they did and also by telling the public that there is a good possibility that someone may have remembered something but blew it off because they were told that abduction did not happen. I will never understand LE saying all that they have and then saying Justin is free to come and go as you and I.

    2. Dana, thanks so much for pointing this out. But then, we know the media is not necessarily known for vetting their sources or actively engaged in getting to the truth and obtaining exact quotes. It's the fuzzy lines between news reporting and feature writing which cause a lot of problems and that fuzzy line seems to be the "journalism" of the day.

      Delete
    3. The Daily Mail is barely a step above the Enquirer and Weekly Word News here. One must consider the source and their history and reputation. I don't think a UK gossip rag is the best example to use, but I think that LOCAL media has a duty to better report on this case. By "better report" I mean they should be a lot more aggressive in chasing this case than they have been. If they weren't such ********, we'd probably know a lot more about this case and the people involved.

    4. Using publicity to push a case along "is a very bad idea," said Bruce MacFarlane, a professional affiliate with the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law and former deputy attorney general of Manitoba.

      "Public and media pressure ... poses the greatest risk for distorting normal decision making in the criminal justice system," MacFarlane wrote in an academic paper on wrongful convictions.

      In an email last week, MacFarlane said the release of information to the public is unlikely to advance justice.

      "The bottom line is that the planned press conference, at least for that purpose, is a very bad idea," he said. "Victim lobbying efforts, though well-intentioned, can backfire badly."

She needs to follow her heart and follow what she believes is the right way to go. God bless you Trista.

    6. Foil, we can only imagine how hard it is for the family to "know" things and to have a constant barrage of people who have been mislead by lies and the hiding of the truth. I would imagine it can be quite painful to know one thing is true, but see people being led astray. If nothing else, there is a relief in letting the public know what the insiders know. Not that it will change everyone's opinion, because frankly, people tend to believe what they want to believe (it's why Justin has been able to remain silent and gather supporters) regardless of clear evidence that a crime took place in that home. I often wonder how people can totally convince themselves of that, oh yeah.. they think everyone who says anything contrary to their beliefs is lying. I hope that by releasing this information, it may open the eyes of some of the blind followers, though... I doubt it. But what it will do is give Trista some tiny bit of relief and that's ok.

    When violence is perpetrated against a child, it leads to a level of hysteria among the public, he said, and rural Maine is just the type of place where public outcries are most powerful.
    "If it's in a smaller community, things like abductions and missing toddlers and violent crime is uncommon and it upsets the community," he said. "People in the community talk about it. Sometimes things they hear aren't true."
    The net effect can be imprisonment for those who are innocent, and freedom for those who are guilty, Tepfer said.
    Many times, seemingly airtight cases have unraveled and the initial suspect is eventually proven innocent, he said.

    1. If I lived in rural Maine I would be offended by this statement. It implies the place is a backwater, its people not as sophisticated as those from cities. Some people move to rural areas not because they're ignorant or unsophisticated but for the peace it brings. Just sayin'...

    2. I fail to see what harm Trista can do to the case by releasing the info LE told her. LE didn't release it. They can deny it. They can ignore it. They can say they
      plead with Trista not to release it.

      LE probably wishes that they hadn't had a few minutes of common humanity and told Trista "what a mother should know". Then they sat on their hands for months, in Trista's eyes, without doing a dammed thing.

      The prosecutor appears to be very firm that nothing Trista says will affect how they proceed with the case. So why is he up in arms? He's a wee bit anxious about public pressure in the wake of her announcements and again, says, nothing will affect the way he does his job.
      Public pressure ain't nuthin' to him!

      Perhaps if LE and the prosecutors in Utah had experienced more public pressure and arrested Josh Powell for Susan't murder, Susan Powell's little boys would be alive and happy today with her parent's instead of dead from their father's murderous hands.

      If Ayla's death was an accident, why didn't anyone in that house call 911? Doesn't anyone think that is strange? That she bled in that house and then disappeared doesn't give anybody a chill?

      Why has no one explained the blood? If you were Trista, wouldn't you want to know what happened to your child when the evidence says your child bled in that house? When your child's blood was in Justin's SUV? And nobody is talking. They refuse to talk to her. What would you do?

      I think she is doing the right thing. She found out "what a mother should know" and she is damm well doing something about it when no one else will.

      Trista is not willing to wait patiently and keep silent for two, five, ten, or twenty years so that the MSP and the prosecutor can save face while continuing to avoid their sworn duty.

      Arrest them all for obstruction, and let them simmer for a while. Some of them might not want to be separated from their children and spill some beans. Right now, they have nothing to lose. Silence is working for them, and so why say anything?

      As someone who has lived in a rural area of a small community for 20 years, I'm not offended by the statement in the article at all.
      It isn't implying that the people are ignorant or unsophisticated at all.
      There is a different mindset of people in a small community, rather than a large city. (of which I lived for over 30 years). That has nothing to do with sophistication or ignorance.

      I agree with your post. There have been cases in which law enforcement had blood evidence (such as the Powell tragedy) and refused to arrest the perpetrator(s). There have been cases in which law enforcement even had the deceased child, and the cause of death determined to be the result of blunt force trauma (ruled a homicide), and they failed to hold the perpetrator(s) accountable.

      I agree--how long should Trista be expected to wait for justice for her daughter? It is highly unlikely as time goes by that Ayla's remains will be recovered. It is obvious that Justin is not going to do the right thing and reveal where Ayla is.

      I personally respect Trista's decision to at least try to move this case forward. MOO.

I have to question what her motives truly are with law enforcement asking, with good reason, that she not do this. They are the ones with all the evidence. Who knows what evidence they haven't shared? To me, this says, shut up and let us do our job. She should listen. To those over at u4a pitching a fit about this article, your speculation about evidence and the motives of others is null. You've been publicly called out for your action by the office of the ag.

    12. Anon 1:55 - the idea that this release of information, evidence and opinion will forever taint the public to the point that an impartial jury cannot be seated is silly in my opinion. Not everybody in the state is following the case, and even among those who are exposed to this information there are plenty who can serve on a jury without bias. The Yankee mentality is one that tends not to judge others and gives people the benefit of the doubt, while having a healthy skepticism.

      Simply being exposed to information doesn't disqualify someone from a jury. I think there are and will continue to be many more people who can serve without any preconceived bias as compared to the population who may have their minds made up.

      There's a misconception that jurors can have no knowledge of a case before trial. This is untrue. A juror must be able to enter the courtroom on the first day with an open mind that is ready to weigh the evidence to the standards of beyond a reasonable doubt. Trista's release of evidence can be splashed all over the front pages of every newspaper and lead the evening news on every station around this state - and it will still not be difficult to seat an impartial jury.

And she is doing this because there is absolutely nothing to suggest that anyone in that house did anything to Ayla?

      I guess it's hard to see your friends under the glare of public scrutiny when you are sure those friends (or relatives) are innocent, but doesn't a smidgeon of suspicion ever fall on Justin and the rest in your mind?

      Trista is still a likely candidate for abducting Ayla and, what? Killing her in the DiPietro house during the kidnapping, and then disposing of her body? Or are we back to that act being committed by the pervert stranger in the night?

      Relax, I think there will be no trial for Trista to mess up. Maybe there might be a plea bargain. Isn't that what the AG is hoping for? What's the Maine prosecutor's record for convictions as opposed to plea bargains?

      Of course, Justin, et.al. will have to keep a close eye on Courtney. She is the wild card with the drug-dealing sibling. Courtney may be intending to bolt from the guidelines set down by Heidi, lay counselor to the oppressed and wrongfully accused.

      Perhaps Courtney will trade some info for a better deal for her sis. Something CR has done badly has elicited a gentle shove from Courtney's former "stud."

      Wait, "Katie" came up with the info here almost immediately after the non-assault that CR denied that Justin did something or other.

      Looks as if she is still on board the leaky tub, SS Violette Ave. But for how long?

      How long will CR stay in line? Justin may have already thrown her under the bus, if it is true that he told LE that he left Ayla with Courtney that night while he went to get wine. A somewhat different story than he told the media.

    Inquest
    An inquest is a judicial inquiry in common law jurisdictions, particularly one held to determine the cause of a person's death.[1] Conducted by a judge, jury, or government official, an inquest may or may not require an autopsy carried out by a coroner or medical examiner. Generally, inquests are only conducted when deaths are sudden or unexplained. An inquest may be called at the behest of a coroner, judge, prosecutor, or, in some jurisdictions, upon a formal request from the public.[2] A coroner's jury may be convened to assist in this type of proceeding. Inquest can also mean such a jury and the result of such an investigation. In general usage, inquest is also used to mean any investigation or inquiry.

    An inquest uses witnesses, but suspects are not permitted to defend themselves. The verdict can be, for example, natural death, accidental death, misadventure, suicide, or murder. If the verdict is murder or culpable accident, criminal prosecution may follow, and suspects are able to defend themselves there.

    Since juries are not used in most European civil law systems, these do not have any (jury) procedure similar to an inquest, but medical evidence and professional witnesses have been used in court in continental Europe for centuries.[3][4][5]

  23. I've decided to not attend the press conference. I don't understand why Trista is now going to release the information this afternoon, according to the news I'm reading. I just want to stay out of the fray.

    1. The thing is Michelle they are already twisting what she has said. If they don't speak to the media they are wrong if they do they are liars. They can't win no matter which way they go. It has been 22 months of accusations of wrong doing and they are blinded to anything else. Yes Justin could be guilty, but he also may not be.
