Conspiracies, Innuendo, Rumors and Lies


Conspiracies, Innuendo, Rumors and Lies

        

Reading online lately, whether on Facebook or different blogs, I realized that there are so many things about this case that are made out to be more than they really are and this occurs on all fronts, no matter what you think happened to Ayla and who is responsible. It is quite ridiculous actually.

It has never been a secret that I do not like Trista as a person so if I ever had a reason to pin what happened to Ayla on her, I would be the first in line pointing the finger. It really doesn't matter if you like Jeff and what he stands for or if he creeps you out or if this latest evidence release was orchestrated or shown to people not associated with LE before it hit the media. What it simply boils down to me is who has the most to lose by talking? Trista may as well open her mouth and insert her foot the majority of the time and Jeff may skirt around questions or not answer them in the manner someone demands but it makes no sense to me that by them speaking out they are really attempting to divert attention off of themselves or trick LE. Usually the person with the most to lose won't talk to LE and for the past two years the only people not talking are the ones in the home the night Ayla disappeared and the ones many believe know what happened to Ayla and that includes LE based on their own comments. 

So maybe some of the information Trista has released either in previous news releases, interviews, or by way of Jeff have discrepancies. Do any of the discrepancies have any bearing on the night in question? In my opinion, the main thing that Trista has been less than truthful regarding are why she lost custody of Ayla and why she didn't go get her of she thought she was in danger. If you were a less than stellar parent for any reason and had the eyes of the world on you, what would you say in response to some of those questions? Trista likely was trying to preserve her image but as most of now eventually the truth does prevail and it is almost impossible to lie when so many people know the real story. I think she is guilty of nothing more than being self absorbed and worried more about what people thought of her than telling the whole truth from the start about the events leading up to Ayla's disappearance. So maybe she knew Justin was going to file for custody of Ayla so she tried to beat him to the punch. If I was in her shoes, I know I would do the same thing. The person who files first is usually the one the courts side with.  Maybe she didn't tell the media right away that the father of her young son was in prison for arson and the day she found out Ayla was missing she was on her way to visit him. Would you want all the judgmental people of the world knowing what bad choices you made in the men who father your children? I sure as hell wouldn't. 

When you factor in that Trista is immature, likes the media attention and probably any attention for that matter, and that she makes bad choices regarding more than one aspect of her life, some of the comments made by her that others think are part of a conspiracy and that she really knows what happened to Ayla can really be chalked up to immaturity, lack of education and/or common sense, and a need for attention. Does it make her responsible for what happened to Ayla? In some way, yes it does. It was her actions that led to Ayla being taken away but on the other hand Ayla could have disappeared on a weekend visit although I find that unlikely since it is a lesser time frame for an accident to happen as well as for someone to get so angry and frustrated they snap and harm a child and also the expectation that she be returned on a certain day and time. Overall though, unless Trista went to Waterville in the middle of the night and whisked Ayla away, which I also find unlikely based on Trista's financial and intellectual capabilities, she most likely is not responsible.

Before anyone attacks me for putting Trista in such a harsh light, save it. I know her character probably better than any of you and have met her personally. Nothing I said above is a lie.

On the other side of the spectrum, we have the three in the home that night who avoid media like the plague. Who do not speak out for Ayla or even really speak at all about Ayla. In the early stages we got a few comments from Justin, Elisha, and Phoebe but not a peep from Courtney. Why? Justin also made a few suspect statements, one LE called out as being untruthful. Justin claims he "smoked" his lie detector test but LE say that isn't so. Justin said he wasn't given the results when he was in fact given them. He also told media that Ayla did not come to her demise down in his house. Was that a slip up that ended any media interviews? Why specify down in his home? Not speaking has seemed to work for Justin and those in the home if you believe that they are guilty. Almost two years and no arrests, no suspects, no solid leads on where Ayla can be found. Only a bunch of Internet rumors from time to time stating she has been found and someone, usually Justin, is in jail. Everyone berates a sigh of relief that this ordeal is over and that Ayla can be laid to rest finally only to find out later that it wasn't true and LE still doesn't know where she is. If the rumors affect the public who never met Ayla personally so emotionally, imagine the turmoil it puts the family through?

When you look back over this case and what is known about it, there really isn't a whole heck of a lot. The majority of it is innuendo, rumors or speculation that some have adopted as fact, and a whole lot of talk about conspiracies. It really is quite simply a tragic case of a little girl most likely gone forever. A little girl that LE holds no hope of finding alive. Police feel that Ayla met with foul play and did not wander away nor was she abducted. The people police want to talk aren't. Trista has done a lot of talking. She claims LE showed her evidence Ayla was not alive. Only LE really knows if she is telling the truth or not so why would she lie knowing that LE would know she was lying. What would the purpose be of trying to sway the public to force LE into action? To sabotage the case so Justin can walk free? Even if the public forced police to make an arrest wouldn't there still be a trial? Wouldn't actual evidence need to be released at that trial and not just the word of Trista and Jeff? This case is not some big conspiracy or some episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Stop trying to make things more complicated than they are and keep it simple.

    That sounds an awful lot like you want people to stop questioning and discussing their views. Why have a blog, then, other than to disseminate propaganda? Not an accusation, just surprised to read you say that since it doesn't seem like you.

    1. "Stop trying to make things more complicated than they are and keep it simple."

      I say this respectively. I have to agree with Tori. Most "missing" child cases are simple. There rarely is mystery/complexity involved in the cases of harmed children. I think it is easier to accept the alternative then it is to face reality which is that some people/parents do harm/kill children.

    3. Hi, Jazzie.

      I'm all for a blog that allows balanced discussion and questions regarding Ayla.

      I'm turned off by blogs that "disseminate propaganda."

      Personally, I like Ayla blog comments that provide links...all the better with direct quotes.

      And I like thoughtful, intelligent opinions.

      I don't care for half-truths, retractions and corrections.

      I don't care for gossip and behind-the-scene antics.

      I don't care for personal attacks.

      I like Corona beer. I don't care for Budweiser.

      Anyway, nice to make your acquaintance!

    4. I don't think Tori is trying to silence any voices nor do I think she is disseminating propaganda. I think she is being honest in her views. I do try to provide links if I make a statement that needs validity. I too think it is important to backup what you say. As for all the Ayla Reynolds blogs, I think they are all basically dysfunctional. LOL. How can they not be when they are based on a group of individuals from all walks of life seeking justice for Ayla Reynolds. It's all good. At times it can be just plain maddening, but at the end of the day I believe every voice creates a path that leads to justice for Ayla.

  2. I love how you can be so judgmental to Trista because "you know her" seems that I have seen a few skeletons from your closet showing up on this blog. Must be nice to be perfect and to have lived a perfect life. Trista is not responsible for what happened to Ayla and we all know that, not in any way, shape or form. Thats like saying that a person being abused is responsible for the abuse because they said the wrong thing. The person who is responsible is hiding behind a bunch of lies. Trista is a grieving mom who deserves respect no matter what her past was. This blog post really disappoints me. You just couldn't write it about the Dips who were the people taking care of Ayla at the time she "disappeared", even though they knew someone was watching their house and he was afraid someone was going to come and take her he did nothing to protect her, instead he puts her in a room by herself. If these people were even close to being innocent they would be begging for Ayla's return, if they truly believed she was "kidnapped", they would be pleading with the kidnappers. Thats common sense!

    1. I am with you 100%.... I would like to know as well, why you "Tori", can talk down about Trista but no one has the right to tell you how wrong you are. Obviously you do not have a heart because then you would not be talking crap about a mother who is grieving for her MISSING (presumably dead) CHILD!!!!
      How dare you act so righteous but sit there behind your computer and make a grieving mom look like crap. I pray you find some heart and compassion for those who are hurting.

    2. Oh yes, Tori. you are showing your character to us also, and I can truthfully tell you, that you don't have any space to be talking. Rightous too much for someone who begs for money to pay her bills.

    5. Tori I really think out of respect for Ayla you should be removing the posts from people who are using disgusting language to describe Trista, obviously its someone from the Dipietro family who is starting to feel the heat. Please out of respect for Ayla (which is the reason you say you are here) remove the posts!

    7. I don't buy that you just now are seeing this considering Dana is posting the same thing. Im sure they were left up for Elisha so she could see her words on the blog and know that she is continuing to disrespect Ayla who she was alway jealous of. Of course friends should help friends.

    8. Can't say that I am suprised at her jealousy, Ayla was a BEAUTIFUL GIRL INSIDE AND OUT. She had the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. The competition must have been tough! Now that Ayla is out of the picture Im sure her life is back to normal.

    11. Whether you believe me or not is your choice. I woke up to 32 emails this morning, 20 something of them being here. I also woke up and got myself and my two kids ready for the day, off to school, and then after finishing my errands finally sat down to read these. I'm sorry, again, that it took me so long. I'm sorry you expect me, or Dana, or tori (who is not even living in her own home at the moment), to sit at our computers and monitor this 24/7. Get a grip on reality. We will do this as often as we can, but we all have our own families and responsibilities outside of this blog that may occasionally cause us a lapse in time in editing inappropriate comments.

  3. This is a case of a beautiful little girl that deserves justice even if it was her father that wronged her and people want to stand behind him. I think if I ever ran into him on the street I would have a hard time containing myself. I know I would have a hard time containing myself and I would be fighting for Ayla!

  4. Nina, I agree with you. The whole point of a blog is to talk, roll around one's thoughts and opinions. Share them with others and see where it goes.

    Sometimes I think we all get frustrated with the direction and depth of conversation, but it's like a runaway train, it can't be stopped.

    I still maintain the family not talking knows the truth and is hiding it. If Trista had anything to do with Ayla being missing, certainly all her public talks would have revealed it by now.

    Someone advised Justin to stay silent and he thinks, so far, that's working for him. Actually, it's working against him.

    The truth will come out, in the meantime, everyone should keep talking it up. The good, the bad and the ugly, because that lets the people who harmed Ayla know we will not stop, until justice is met.

  5. I know this has been questioned repeatedly, but did Trista actually lose custody of Ayla? Ordered by court?

    It's so confusing, because it doesn't seem that she did. This issue arises for any set of parents who do not have a court order custody and visitation set in place. If there is no court order, each parent has equal rights to the child. That's why dhhs (supposedly) said, "father trumps aunt". It doesn't make it right a lot of times, but it's legally right, sometimes unfortunately.

    A lot of people don't know that. They think, well I've been the childs primary care giver, or ex would never take child, etc., but that's the law.

    So, I guess she lost custody, but in my eyes it wasn't legally ordered by a court, yet it technically was legal. Its kind of a gray area, I guess, during the time when no court order is in place.

    I think Trista thought that Ayla would be ok with Justin, until she was back on her feet. Even with a few past episodes of possible neglect on Justin's part, there's probably always a shadow of doubt that he actually harmed her, until everything is pieced together into a bigger picture. I would imagine she thought Ayla would be safe, not in grave danger, at her fathers, grandmothers, and aunts house, especially with Ayla's little cousin there.

    I think it was all a big confusing mess.

    Yes, Trista had issues, there's no denying that. She seems to have grown and matured in the past 2 years. That doesn't help Ayla now, but at the same time, Ayla should have really been safe with her fathers side of the family. And like you said, any personality conflicts in regard to Trista, have nothing to do with Ayla missing.

    There are lots of unanswered questions about Justin, that I see getting asked everywhere too. Trista's personal life has been broadcasted publicly, where Justin's has remained much more private. Is that because Trista likes media attention, or because she wants to know what happened to her baby?

    It seems like Trista, at least in the beginning, has no filter. She says what comes to her mind, without actually thinking of how it sounds or looks to others. Does that seem like someone hiding something, and trying to trick LE? For 2 years now? Justin, on the other hand, has not just a filter, but a shut off button I guess. He has hardly spoken at all, and when he did, it was usually something pre-written and prepared by someone else.

    I was wondering about the rumor yesterday. I don't think Trista knew that person was going to announce that, that she apparently got from her old friends mother. I actually think a rumor like that would upset Trista, as much if not more than Justin. Obviously if it's not true, Justin knows he's not sitting in jail, whereas Trista has to wonder if her baby has been found, but she hadn't been notified yet.

    I think these rumors are put out by people not even involved. Neither by Trista or Justin. Some people just like attention.

    1. As far as I know there was never a time that Trista lost custody in a court of law. She had filed for custody, but Ayla disappeared before any court hearing could take place.

      Delete
  6. Custody rights differ from.state to state. In Missouri and Kansas both parents have equal rights to their child unless a court order specifically grants primary custody to a certain parent.
    Example: dad and mom split up. Both parents verbally agree to a loose visitation schedule, with mom keeping primary physical custody. Things go ok. One day dad comes to pick up the child but decides he wants to keep child the majority of the time, he wont bring child to mom.
    Is that parental abduction? No.
    Because neither parent has been granted primary (full) custody by a court of law, parental responsibility is 50/50. Both parents have exactly the same rights to physical custody of the child.
    Trista and Justin obviously reached a verbal agreement after Justin was proven aylas father regarding visitation. Trista may have had some doubts about Justin's treatment of ayla but chose to believe Justin's flimsy excuses. Why on earth would she give the father of her child the benefit of doubt? Because even though he's a douche she saw good in justin because she saw justin in ayla.

  9. Interesting post Tori.

    Some of your points I agree with, others, not so much.

    I'm not going to comment on Trista, other than this one area you commented on ,,
    Not necessarily concerning Trista, just in general.

    "So maybe she knew Justin was going to file for custody of Ayla so she tried to beat him to the punch. If I was in her shoes, I know I would do the same thing. The person who files first is usually the one the courts side with"

    ....I don't believe a judge decides who will have custody of a child on who files first. There are a whole list of things a judge must consider when determining who is better equipped to have custody of a child/ren. I'm sure who files first has no bearing on that decision.

    "Stop trying to make things more complicated than they are and keep it simple"

    I'm not so sure that this case is so simple. I believe that if it were simple, there would have been arrest long ago. I'm sure that LE would have loved for it to simple.

    I don't believe that talking about Ayla and what may or may not have happened to her, has, or is going to hinder MSP investigation in any way, shape, or form.
    I should think that considering any and all aspects of what may have happened to Ayla would be encouraged, not discouraged.
    At the same time I'm sure that some discussions cause stress and hurt feelings to Ayla's family members. I try to be mindful of that.
    However, my main goal is to find answers for Ayla.

    I also do not accept the idea that believing that Ayla could be alive, or having hope that she is, brings any kind of disservice to her.
    Nor do I believe that anyone having that hope is any way diverting or obstructing justice. I don't care who the person is, a friend, a relative, someone who knows the family, or someone who doesn't know the family.
    Their beliefs or hopes will NOT hinder the investigation. MSP will go where the evidence leads them, no matter what people believe.
    No matter what is said on a blog, website, or Facebook page.

    Keep talking about Ayla!!!

  10. Yes I agree Anon 1:46, I was shocked as I read, and very disappointed that she would bash Trista as she did. Unbelievable. Everyone with a head on their shoulders and their heads out of the sand know who is responsible for Ayla not being here. And to say that Trista is partly at fault because she sent Ayla to Justin's in the first place is ridiculous!

I do and if it was my child I would because as a parent you always think you could have prevented it.

      I would certainly hope not, Dana.

      I have great respect for Trista getting help. I have NEVER faulted her on that front. That is what healthy people do...get help when needed.

      I question why Trista made an agreement with Justin to care for Ayla if she suspected Justin of abusing Ayla.

      Trista, Justin, Ronnie, and even the Lewistown police confirm that Trista and Justin had this mutual agreement prior to DHHS taking action.

      I question why ten days became 59 days, and Trista did not retrieve her daughter earlier. According to Trista, she "let" Justin keep Ayla because it was the "safest" place for their daughter while Trista was getting back on her feet.

      I don't give a rat's ass about Trista visiting Ray in Machiasport. Ray was her fiancé, they had a child together, and she was going to have a visitation with her fiancé.

      I question the cell call exchanges between Ron, Sr., Robert Fortier, and Trista on that fateful December 17 morning.

      Trista should not blame herself for confronting a substance abuse issue. She should be commended for doing so.

    6. I must be wording it wrong I don't think you get what I mean. I am glad she got help too.If it were me I would say to myself if I had never got mixed up with (drugs or alcohol which ever it was I had to go to rehab for) then my daughter would not have had to been staying in Waterville. Because of bad choices I made in life I would feel partially responsible I would blame myself. Does that make sense?

    8. It was like when our son died as an infant for a long long time my wife along with myself blamed ourselves. If we had the crib next to our bed, If we hadn't gone to bed so early.

The doctor told us this was normal when you lose a child you always feel there is something you should have done you blame yourself even though you could have done nothing.

    11. Dana...you're not wording it wrong.

      People from all walks of life struggle with alcoholism. It makes me sad to think that Trista might think confronting her problem was the root cause of losing Ayla. Whether voluntarily or mandated, she entered rehab (but I do believe she was given an ultimatum...get help or lose Ayla and Ray).

      I question her choice of Justin as caretaker, not the circumstances.

      What if Trista had to enter a rehabilitation facility for two weeks after suffering a stroke?

      Would Ayla have been safe with Justin?

    14. "Whether voluntarily or mandated, she entered rehab (but I do believe she was given an ultimatum...get help or lose Ayla and Ray)."

      And the reason why she may have had an ultimatum is because substance abusing parents are by nature neglectful parents. That's not an opinion, that's a statistical fact. I am the child of neglect. Because my mother wasn't there for me I was the victim of numerous crimes. Thankfully I am strong and recovered from them, one day at a time.

      Delete
    15. Mckee the answer is no, no safer, but I still think Trista would say if I had not had a stroke and been put in the hospital this would probably never have happened. As a parent you blame yourself with the what if thing, even though it is circumstances beyond your physical control.

    18. mckeekitty, in answer to your questions why Trista allowed Justin to keep Ayla, I believe that there were possibly several reasons. First of all, I do believe that Trista wanted Ayla back with her after she left rehab, and I do believe that Justin was supposed to return Ayla to her. I also believe that Trista gave in quite a bit to Justin upon her return from rehab because she was trying to get her life back together, still had deep (albeit mixed) feelings for Justin, and Justin refused to cooperate with returning Ayla. I also consider Trista's young age, lack of resources (both financial and familial) to help her with having Ayla returned, the fact that she was also trying to take care of an infant, and that she was being stone-walled by the DHHS. I also believe that Trista became increasingly concerned about not being able to see or even speak with Ayla, and because Justin indicated that he was filing for custody. Hence, her court filing just before Ayla "disappeared".

      Also, this portion of a person's earlier post sums up quite well what feelings Trista may have been experiencing in relation to Justin's contact and relationship with their daughter, Ayla, in my opinion:

      "Trista may have had some doubts about Justin's treatment of Ayla but chose to believe Justin's flimsy excuses. Why on earth would she give the father of her child the benefit of doubt? Because even though he's a douche she saw good in justin because she saw justin in ayla."

      As another poster commented, hindsight IS 20/20. Unless we have walked a mile in Trista's shoes and experienced her life, (both before and after Ayla's disappearance), I personally would not ever want to pass judgement on her or her family for that matter. If Ayla had not disappeared while in the care of her father, and his family, Trista would not have been thrust into the national media as she has. I actually commend Trista for continuing to BE AYLA'S VOICE, and trying to do the right thing in spite of the fact that people have spent months on blogs dissecting her character, her parenting skills, and her personal life, in general. Yes, people can say that Justin and his family's life has been dissected too. But, I also consider the fact that Ayla disappeared while in the care of the DiPietro family, and they have refused (for the most part) to call out for Ayla. Without saying it outright, law enforcement has implied (not so subtly) that Justin, Elisha, and Courtney are the de facto persons of interest in Ayla's disappearance and likely death--not Trista or any of her family members. It is a normal inclination of human beings to become suspicious in such a case when persons of interest refuse to talk or explain descrepancies (i.e. Ayla's blood found in the home). For the record, the only thing I care to discuss regarding the DiPietro family is in terms of how Ayla came to be harmed in their home and locating her. I have never cared about what Justin drank on such and such day, who he was sleeping with last month, whether Phoebe has fur boots or not, whether or not Elisha attends school, who Courtney's son's father is, etc. To me, all of those things are irrelevant unless of course they lead to the location of Ayla and/or justice for her. I also don't expect you--or anyone else--to agree with my thoughts here. That is all they are.....thoughts. :)

    22. Hey, Rose!

      Well, no surprise. I respectfully disagree with several of your points

      You present many speculative excuses for Trista's actions. I wonder how Trista feels about being depicted as confused, immature, having mixed feelings for Justin, etc. on a blog.

      Trista had no problem sitting down with the Today Show and slamming Justin just days after Ayla disappeared.

      She failed to mention that she felt Ayla was "safest" in his care.

      As always, wishing you well, Rose.

    24. Hi mckeekitty,
      I have no problem with you disagreeing. Although, you did take my words out of context regarding Trista, The mixed feelings about Justin you got right, though. But, Trista has indicated that several times without outright saying it. Anyway, I highly doubt that she would be offended one bit by what I have written or care what my thoughts are. I have never insinuated that she had ulterior motives, craved media attention, was a bad mother, abducted her daughter, conspired with others to take Ayla, etc., etc. What I have done is put forth the possibility that Trista is guilty of nothing more than being painfully human. I also do not blame Trista for slamming Justin on the Today Show after Ayla disappeared. I will have to go back and find that video when I have a chance; I don't recall it exactly. Although my life circumstances do not mirror Trista's, I can totally understand and relate to what she has gone through in her life, mostly in terms of being confused, immature, and having mixed feelings about the father of my oldest child at her age--totally.

      It is perfectly okay (with me) to disagree. I respect your opnions. I wish you the best.

    29. Southern gospel--that's neat. I am a guitarist/vocalist myself and love music. Well, Gary Moore is from Belfast Ireland, and his start in music goes back to when he was playing alongside the likes of Rory Gallagher and being mentored by Peter Green (original Fleetwood Mac). Perhaps you've heard Green's Black Magic Woman (his was the original)? Gary has done Celtic rock/blues, heavy metal, easy-listening, country, jazz-fusion, and pop. Relatively unknown in the states (except for his later blues) he has collaborated with members of Cream, Greg Lake (of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, B.B. King, Albert King, George Harrision, Bluesbreakers, and others. He is most recognized for his time(s) with Irish rock band, Thin Lizzy, particularly Phil Lynott.

He used the famous Gibson Les Paul "Greeny" guitar that he inherited from Peter Green and did a whole tribute album for him, half of the songs were Peter Green's with Gary's newer interpretation:

    35. Hi Rose!

      I'm glad we can respectfully disagree with no hard feelings!

      My issue is with Trista's contradictory statements. I'm concerned about how frequently her story has changed.

      I, too, sense Trista has had a very difficult life. But I'm trying to find the truth of what happened to Ayla, as I know you are.

      BTW...I think Justin stinks. I'm troubled that he doesn't speak out for his daughter. I don't like the dude.

      But at least he's been consistent in his position.

      Wishing you well, Rose.

      PS: I'm glad there's another here that knows Peter Green was one of the original members of Fleetwood Mac!



      Delete
    36. Mckeekitty, consistent in his position, its easy to be consistent when you speak once and then go silent. That in itself shows his guilt. You should spend less time trying to figure out new ways to say that you think Trista is a looser and spend more time on your own life.

    41. "kitty" I think you should start concentrating on the person who caused the disappearance, you good friend Justin instead of trying to insult a grieving mother, it doesn't make you look very good. I'm sure being shown "evidence" that her daughter is no longer alive might have something to do with her problem of keeping thoughts straight. I'm sure if it were you in this situation you would be thinking clearly every minute of every sad day. Judgmental much?

    They are both fighting for Justice for Ayla.

    I'll just say that from my very limited knowledge, Tori has been through a lot to keep fighting for Ayla. She has put up with so much! And I'm sure there's much more that I don't know about.

    As for Trista? Do I think she's Mother Theresa? No.

    Do I think she's done the best she can? Yes.

    Do I have compassion for her? Absolutely.

    I want to see Trista be able to get Justice for Ayla.

    I hope somehow that something good is able to come out of all this. That this heartbreaking situation will somehow bring a positive change for children at risk. That Trista will be able to see her potential as a child advocate & that she will be able to be part of the positive change I spoke off.

  15. Justin had rights as aylas father. A parent has 'first dibs' so to speak. Once Justin had physical custody of ayla, unless trista pulled the same stunt (agree to take ayla for a weekend or whatever and just keep her) her only legal a safe recourse would have been exactly what she did-file for custody through the court. All of that has no bearing on the case. Justin did not know trista had filed for cuistody.
    I am continually amazed that I actually see post condemning trista for trying to do the right thing. Rehab. Trusting her baby's dad (we all know now that that trust was a horrible mistake, but who knows what lurks in the hearts of men?). Legally filing for custody instead of pulling a custody grab. I digress...
    Whatever happened to ayla did not happen as a cosmic revenge on trista for her past transgressions. Quit kicking the poor woman, she's already down.

    What it should all boil down to is this: ayla is missing. Even though all the evidence points to aylas death, miracles can happen. One thing is for certain- Justin was responsible. Ayla was in his physical custody. If she fell down the stairs its his fault. If she got stung by a bee its his fault. If Courtney murdered her its his fault. If Elisha murdered her its his fault. Whatever scenario you can think of, its on Justin. Why? Because he's her dad. DADDY'S ARR SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEIR DAUGHTERS. END OF DISCUSSION. MAN UP JUSTIN.

  17. I had no internet for two days. We had electricity but I had to go elsewhere to pick up wifi until it was fixed today.

    For starters, the intention of this post was missed by many of you. Maybe because I wrote too fast and didn't think enough about my words but the post wasn't meant to bash Trista although it is not surprising that was focused on. I also didn't bash Trista. I called her immature, not financially stable, and craves attention which even if you don't know who she is but had seen her on television or at vigils etc you would be able to see for yourself. As far as holding her responsible for Ayla's disappearance, I don't. It makes no sense that she was responsible for taking Ayla and I never bashed her for rehab which was a choice made only by being given an ultimatum. I also never told anyone they couldn't tell me I was wrong. I am entitled to my opinions as is everyone else. The only thing Trista could be responsible for was that Ayla was sent to live with Justin. I wasn't blaming her but reiterating things said here on the blog and other places for the past two years by those who think she is guilty. As far as Ayla's disappearance that is her only fault.

    As far as what I feel the purpose of the blogs are, it is to discuss the facts of the case and to keep Ayla's name alive until there is justice. I do not think that they are here to make rumors and speculation fact and add confusion to the case. People can do what they want and think how they feel in regards to this case but I find the case a lot more simple than some big conspiracy theory that Jeff and Trista are involved or covering for Justin. I also only asked Dana to edit my post to remove typos not to remove it or retract anything. I could pick up a weak signal and was able to send emails but not load the webpage. He removed the post because the comments were getting to be a lot and I couldn't respond at the time.

    1. Tori, I disagree that this is a simple case. If it were, arrests would have been made. The fact that there was visible blood found and apparently little if any effort to clean the scene makes it complex.

      Delete
    2. It was a good well written post and created an atmosphere for discussion.
      If you remove all passion and speculation from the case it is difficult to guess the who what when where whys and hows of the crime. Each suspect has to be modeled as the perpetrator with sub models of each possible suspect employing the others as possible accomplices before and after the fact. LE would have done that repeatedly to examine the evidence from different angles. One way or another Ayla has not reappeared and the case is active so they have a "theory of the crime" ranking each possibility. I liked and bookmarked this theory because it sounds logical but deals with the complexity of why everyone is so tightly locked into their roles and positions.

    2. Considering Justin did Ayla wrong I don't believe it would be respectful to Ayla I believe Ayla would be happy that people that don't even know here are sticking up for her and trying to find justice in her name. She suffered at Justin's hands. Justin made sure she didn't see her mommy in her last few days.

    4. No at this point it no longer speculation. And if you were an advocate for Ayla you would feel the same way. The blood was on the Dipeitros, not the Reynolds. Did you miss that part? Do you not believe there was blood. Do you not believe that it was everywhere so that it looked like a murder scene. What else do you want. Take of your rose colored glasses and get your head out of your a**. That baby needs justice and it will come soon. Im sure even if the police charge Justin and company on this you will still be defending.

I can only guess Elisha, Courtney, and pheobe are covering for him because they are all involved to some degree. At the very least obstruction of justice or perhaps failure to report a crime/accident. Personally, I think all 3 dipietros and Courtney should catch a charge of conspiracy to fraud a government agency. Your not supposed to lie to federal authorities.
