Conspiracies, Innuendo, Rumors and LiesReading 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.
