PORTLAND —A courtroom confrontation between the grandparents of missing Waterville toddler Ayla Reynolds ended with both sides being escorted from the Cumberland County courthouse on Wednesday.

Trista Reynolds, the mother of the child who was first reported missing on Dec. 17, 2011, went to the Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court with her family to confront Justin DiPietro, the missing girl’s father, who was in court for an unrelated domestic assault charge for allegedly shoving his ex-girlfriend, Courtney Roberts.

DiPietro’s mother, Phoebe DiPietro, called Trista Reynold’s father, Ron Reynolds, an obsenity in the courtroom, prompting him to follow her into the courthouse hallway, where their confrontation escalated, according to witnesses.

From above:
" ...Justin DiPietro, the missing girl’s father, who was in court for an unrelated domestic assault charge for allegedly shoving his ex-girlfriend, Courtney Roberts...."

IF the gf, Roberts, felt threatened enough by DiPetro that she called LE...
IF he had been charged with domestic assault on his gf...
WHAT then would he do to a small defenseless child he had just taken out life insurance on?

This person has a propensity for violence.
Witness his constant legal interactions.
He and his mother, his gf Roberts, and his sister ALL know what happened to the baby.... their individual silence is creating inner turmoil resulting in the acting out and the impatience with others.

" ...There was blood on a doll in Ayla's bedroom. There was blood on the living room sofa. There was blood in the basement where Ayla's father, Justin DiPietro, slept, on the floor, walls, mattress and sheets. There was blood on the tongue of DiPietro's sneakers, and even blood on Ayla's car seat in DiPietro's car.

Ayla's mother, Trista Reynolds, continues to release bloody details about her daughter's disappearance in late 2011 as she tries to get DiPietro arrested, according to CNN. She says police wanted her to keep the investigation confidential, but wanted DiPietro -- as well as his girlfriend and sister -- to "be prosecuted for it."

He actually says something to Trista at about 00:50 seconds in, but I can't make it all out.  It sounds like he says:  "Let me go.  Let me go.  Right."  And then he says something else I can't make out.

So, they dropped the charges on him because his 'victim' was no longer cooperative--hmm, now what could her reasons have been for suddenly dropping the charges?

I thought the two timelines are interesting when put together.  When he bought the life insurance on Ayla seems to be right around the time when he started beating on her.

_________________________


October 13, 2011 - DHHS gave Trista two choices: kick the alcohol, or lose the kids. Realizing the
adverse affect alcohol was having on herself and her children she admitted herself into a substance
abuse treatment facility in Lewiston that afternoon. Justin was never given sole custody of Ayla . No
complaints were filed with any courts or agencies. Trista never went to court and never saw a judge.
DHHS had put Ayla in the joint care of Becca and Jessica while she was undergoing treatment.

October 17th, 2011, 3pm - DHHS case worker and supervisor for child protection services (CPS),
called Jessica demanding that she turn Ayla over Justin. When Jessica asked," Why now?" she was
told that, "he's the father and he has the right to take her" and went on to say that "dad trumps the aunt - any day". Jessica refused to give Ayla to Justin.

October 17th 2011, 7pm - Lewiston Police and Justin (who waited downstairs) arrived at Jessica's
apartment and demanded on behalf of DHHS that they turn Ayla over to them. After Ayla was turned
over to Justin by the police, it was revealed to Jessica (via phone) that the CPS supervisor had given
the police authorization (and Jessica's address) to retrieve Ayla. Ayla was kicking and screaming
when turned over to Justin. While that may qualify as ‘without incident’ on a police log it was
traumatic for everyone else involved.

Justin was in the apartment when the officer handed Ayla over to him; his mom Phoebe waited in
the car - and Ayla tried to bite the officer as he was handing her over to Justin. After Justin and
Phoebe left with Ayla, the officer stated to Becky that: "if he had his way, he would not have let Ayla
go with Justin".

October 20th 2011, 2pm - A "family team meeting" was held. Among those present were; Trista,
Jessica, Justin (via phone), Jessica's attorney, two doctors, two DHHS case workers, and the CPS
supervisor. At the end of the meeting, all parties agreed (including Justin) that Ayla would be
returned to Trista after completion of her seven day evaluation. Justin was also ordered by DHHS to
bring Ayla to the treatment facility the following day for a visit with Trista, and to release her into the
care of Trista (at Jessica's Apartment) on October 22nd or according to the CPS supervisor "there
would be consequences".

Justin never showed up with Ayla at the treatment facility. Justin also did not release Ayla into
Trista’s care on 10/22/11. Trista called DHHS numerous times, only to be stone-walled by the chain
of command. Trista, at wits end, eventually agrees to leave Ayla with Justin provided she receives
regular visits with Ayla.

November 5th 12th 2011 - Justin calls Trista and says that they (he and his mom) were getting ready
to take Ayla to The Emergency Room. When asked why, Justin told Trista that he was coming home
from shopping the day before and had "fallen up the stairs" on Ayla while carrying her and a bag of
groceries. Later it was reported that Ayla's Left Forearm was broken and had been put into a splint
and ace bandage. Fractured Distal Humerus

November 14th, 2011 approx. 10am: Justin picked Trista up at Jessica's in Lewiston and drove her
and Ayla to an Orthopedic Doctor in Portland. After the examination Trista asked Justin if Ayla could
spend the night with her and was told she was not allowed to have her. When asked why Justin
replied," Because I'm not going to have you telling me what to do".

November 21, 2011 2 pm- Trista went with Ayla and Justin to a Doctor’s Appointment with her bone
specialist, that was the last time Trista, Ronnie, and Becca saw Ayla.

December 15th 2011, 12 pm - Due to her growing concerns of infrequent visitations, lack ofcommunication from Justin, missing doctor visits and Ayla's injuries while under Justin's care
(documented with doctors and DHHS) Trista petitioned the Cumberland County Courthouse for
Parental Rights and Responsibilities.

December 17, 2011 8:51 am - Ayla Bell Reynolds is reported missing from 29 Violette Avenue
Waterville, Maine

_________________________

"Before calling 911 that morning, DiPietro also called his longtime friend, Derek Tudela, in Winslow, Hanson says investigators told Trista. Tudela had sold DiPietro insurance on Ayla's life less than eight weeks earlier. Tudela is also the last publicly identified, non-family witness claiming to have seen Ayla at the DiPietro house Dec. 16. Roberts has not said publicly whether or not she saw Ayla when she stayed at the house that night."

Post by Nan11 on Thu Sep 26, 2013 2:06 pm

This is a portion of the transcript from Dr. Drew's show last night.  I snipped out the portion on baby Ayla, as it begins after the leading story.
_________________________


CNN Transcript | Dr. Drew
Aired September 25, 2013 - 21:00   ET

There was a verbal brawl today in the Baby Ayla case. You will see it and we will explain it. There`s the dad with poor Baby Ayla.

Later, something is not right with this missing child story. Are her mother`s comments suspicious? Her father suspicious? We will tell you. We`re back after this.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PINSKY: I`m back with my co-host Jenny Hutt.

{Snipped as unrelated to Baby Ayla}

PINSKY: So, it`s a worthy conversation, something to continue to talk about. Now, in just a moment we`ve got a new video of missing Baby Ayla`s father in court. He was facing assault charge for pushing his ex- girlfriend into traffic. Yes.

HUTT: What?

PINSKY: Oh, yes, this man has not been arrested.

HUTT: Video games?

PINSKY: Must be the video games he plays.

Now, the toddler had vanished just before Christmas in 2011. Police say they`re still investigating, but there have been no arrests. Ayla`s mom is becoming increasingly frustrated. Take a look at what she`s doing.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is the largest criminal investigation in Maine history.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She disappeared on a December night, about a week before Christmas, after her father says he put her to bed.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We think they know more than they`re telling us.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Police suspect foul play, but have revealed virtually nothing about what they know.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: There was blood found in Justin`s shoes. There was -- there was blood splattered on the walls.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The child`s mother who spent time in rehab questioned whether the father Justin DiPeitro mistreated Ayla, suspicious about a small gash she had on her left arm the night she went missing.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Justin is a great dad. He truly, truly is.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Ayla`s bedroom she shared with her cousin, who was untouched that night. Her face is blurred.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You`re going to tell me there were three people in that house that night and not one of them hearty Ayla screaming?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There`s pa, and you being her father, isn`t enough enough?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Anything new I should know about? No, we`re still interviewing people. That`s awesome, you`ve been interviewing people for almost two years.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Spoiler:
PINSKY: Joining us Ken Altshuler, excuse me. He`s radio talk show host on WGAN 560.

Ken, can you give us any update on Ayla`s dad and his court appearance?

KEN ALTSHULER, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Yes, I can. He was in court, Justin DiPeitro, was in court for allegedly assaulting his section girlfriend Courtney Roberts. Remember, Courtney was the girlfriend in the house with him on December 17th, 2011 when Ayla went missing, as well as his sister, Alisha.

So, he was in court for allegedly assaulting her and for violating the terms of your bail. The real drama happened when his family was in the courtroom and she muttered a derogatory word to Ron Reynolds. She started yelling that her son kids his granddaughter, the fight went out to the hallway, marshals cleared everybody in the courtroom, all of them kicked out of the courthouse, except, of course, Justin DiPeitro, because he has to plead guilty to violating the bail conditions. He was not found guilty, did not plead guilty to the assault. That was a (INAUDIBLE) because his girlfriend changed her story. So, he`s got four days in jail for (INAUDIBLE) --

PINSKY: Ken, if I could interrupt, we`re also looking at the mom as sort of following this young man around, and sort of chastising him. I guess she was outside the courtroom yelling at him as well. Is that correct?

ALTSHULER: Exactly. This is the second confrontation. And this is drama we don`t see in Maine too often, Dr. Drew. As he came out of the courtroom about an hour later, the family confronted both him and Phoebe DiPeitro again. In fact Ella Reynolds yelled at Phoebe, what did you do with Ayla? When she said that, then Trista followed Justin DiPeitro and said, I know you care, what did you do with her?

He had to escape, Dr. Drew, by going to the police department which is right behind --

PINSKY: Ken, I`m interrupting you, because apparently I have footage of some of that actual interaction, so thank you very much for that report. I still have Ken, Lynn, Mark and Crystal. I beg your pardon, Lynn, Mark and Krystal with us and joining us is David Young, former criminal court judge and host of "Justice with a Snap".

As we said, here was the confrontation outside the courtroom today. Take a look at this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Just look at me, Justin, look at me.

(EXPLETIVE DELETED)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Justin, please -- Justin, look me in the eye.

(CROSSTALK)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I am Ayla`s grandmother and I believe she`s alive.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And I am her mother!

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes. We believe that she`s alive and tell us what you did with her.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PINSKY: So, Lynn, police have showed bloody images from inside the house, and why now two years later? Why the delay in getting the crime scene stabilized? There`s so many unanswered questions.

BERRY: There are so many unanswered questions. The big question is why is Trista coming out to the media and telling what police told her? Police are not approving of that. She says it`s to put pressure on the state to put charges against Justin. She believes he`s responsible for Ayla`s death.

PINSKY: Judge Young, do you think --

BERRY: This is --

PINSKY: Go ahead, finish, Lynn.

BERRY: There`s theories out there all around whether or not the police put it before both of them to see who would react and in what way?

PINSKY: I don`t know.

Judge, what do you think they`re up to?

JUDGE DAVID YOUNG, FORMER CRIMINAL COURT JUDGE: I think the right hand doesn`t know what the left hand is doing. It seems after two years, in such a small community, they don`t know what`s going on? And leaking certain evidence to the mother who spouts it out? Her comments in and of itself could possibly mess up this investigation, and they had all this blood in the father`s house and they have not made an arrest? They haven`t connected anything up?

What`s going on there? It`s horrible --

PINSKY: Mark, you let out a big oy. I`m wondering what, if you`re the lawyer for the baby`s father, what do you tell him to do?

EIGLARSH: OK. First of all my oy is this was like "Jerry Springer Live" outside a courthouse when there`s a pending murder investigation. You have a gal who`s right out of rehab, Drew. This can`t be good for her sobriety to make confrontations like this. But what do I tell him to do?

Now, I get to play the devil`s role, I guess. And that is, I tell him to keep his mouth shut. Obviously, they have strong evidence that had probably was involved. Beyond a reasonable doubt, that he probably knows if not played a role, but that`s not proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and they cannot arrest him based on what I have seen, because you can`t eliminate every reasonable hypothesis of innocence.

PINSKY: I love Mark playing -- him doing the devil`s job, but, Crystal, finish this up.

EIGLARSH: Well, I agree with Mark, this is probably one of the few times that I agree with Mark, that it happens, but I think two things -- one thing that nobody said, what troubles me is nobody is mentioning the fact that neither Trista or Justin were ever married, Dr. Drew.

PINSKY: Yes, I`m aware of that.

EIGLARSH: This goes back to, she was a druggie, and she`s been in rehab, very unstable. He looks like there`s a lot of evidence, like Mark said, attaching him to something of foul play going on with his daughter. You had blood on the sheets. Blood found on the kids` toys, her little slippers. There was vomit in the car, blood in the car.

And it`s just unseemly all the way around. But I want to go back to the fact that why aren`t we asking questions about people can just have babies and abandon, they don`t have to get married?

I think people should have to get licenses to have children. They have to have licenses to drive. We`ve got to get licenses to get married.

This is the real -- the failure here starts with the fact that these two individuals never should have had this baby, and tragically now, she`s dead.

PINSKY: I`m going to let that fall on our viewers` ears, but there was, you know, back when Carolla and I used to do "The Love Line", we always said the same thing over again, the real problem is screwed up people having screwed up kids. That`s what the cycle is going.

But hold it on here. Behavior bureau is getting to the bottom of the missing child mystery and I`ve got Baby Ayla`s grandfather is here with us live.

And later, the killer`s good friend is going to join me. He says this murdering pal of his was caring and helpful, and maybe not the guy we think of. It`s confusing. I think it`s even confusing to him.

We`ll get to it after this.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You can`t comment on the blood that was around the house?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Again, I`m not here to answer any questions. I`m just here to show my support for the community that is supporting Ayla.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PINSKY: Time for the behavior bureau. My co-host, Jenny Hutt. And we are discussing the missing baby Ayla. Her father was the last one to have seen her two years ago. He was in court today on a domestic violence charge, and things got crazy outside, even in the courtroom.

Joining us, Samantha Schacher, host of "Pop Trigger" on the Young Turks Network, criminologist and attorney Casey Jordan, host of "Wives with Knives" on Investigation Discovery, Danine Manette, criminal investigator and author of "Ultimate Betrayal", and Janine Driver, the author of "You Can`t Lie to Me."

Janine, you have a screwy connection with us here through your Skype, I`m wondering if you had a chance to look at him in the court today, his domestic violence charges. Did you see anything?

JANINE DRIVER, "YOU CAN`T LIE TO ME": I did, Dr. Drew. Can you hear me?

PINSKY: Loud and clear.

DRIVER: I`m in New Mexico.

PINSKY: Say hi to Walter White for me while you`re down there.

DRIVER: Yes, I will. I`m sure he`s play praying for you, too, and being cancer-free.

PINSKY: Thanks.

DRIVER: Very brave, I was so proud of you sharing that news.

Listen, with (INAUDIBLE), it`s very interesting. He`s very reserved. He pulls himself in a lot. We don`t see a lot of emotions. The emotion I`m looking for is anger.

He should be angry, Dr. Drew, that the baby mama is showing up with his family, calling her a murder. I`m simply not seeing anger. I`m actually seeing more sadness with a furrowed brow, which makes me concerned that maybe in fact he did kill his daughter.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.

PINSKY: Wow. Interesting.

Sam, you want to react to that?

SAMANTHA SCHACHER, SOCIAL COMMENTATOR: Yes. I mean, obviously, emotions were high today outside the courtroom, but how can you blame Trista? I mean, if I were here, I would do far worse than berate him with questions. I probably would have been locked up. Clearly based on this evidence, this guy did murder his child.

PINSKY: I know Jenny would have been like you, Sam. But I`m watching Danine shake her head in ominous way.

What do you have to say there for this?

DANINE MANETTE, CRIMINAL INVESTIGATOR: Dr. Drew, this is has been a mess. The only thing that I think is going to cause a break is for them to attack the weakest link. And the weakest link here is Courtney.

She`s keeping quiet for one of two reasons, either because he has convinced her -- Justin has convinced her she was involved to be just as culpable as him and she`ll go down with him if she says anything. Or maybe she did help. Maybe she did help, you know, with the disposing of the body or cleaning up after the fact or whatever.

So, I think they need to isolate her, find a reason to arrest her, maybe on a three-day weekend, so the judicial calendar won`t wind, and she doesn`t have to be charged until Monday or Tuesday, and work her over. Put the squeeze on her. Put her kid in foster care, and squeeze this information out of her.

PINSKY: Casey, what do you think?

MANETTE: She`s the weak link. She`s get them somewhere.

PINSKY: Casey?

JORDAN: I like what Danine is saying, but the only plot hole is what if Courtney did it? If she did it, she`s not going to crack. And considering that you have Justin with domestic violence assault charges on Courtney right now, now might be a good time to revisit Justin.

But to be honest, this case is two years old, at this point, he`s in this wonderful, placated mode where he thinks he`s gotten away with it, assuming he did it. And I think the evidence point at him.

You have three people -- I`m agreeing with Danine, you have a trial of three people who know something.

PINSKY: Yes.

JORDAN: You got to play them against each other if you want to figure it out.

PINSKY: I want to bring into this conversation Jeff Hansen. He is Baby Ayla`s step-grandfather.

Jeff, you were at the courthouse today. Things got chaotic today. You`ve heard our conversation here. What do you got to say?

JEFF HANSON, BABY AYLA`S STEP-GRANDFATHER (via telephone): Well, Dr. Drew, I believe Phoebe initiated it. She called (INAUDIBLE) an insult as she was walking by. That set things off. And, there was still a press conference that went on afterwards, but when we went out in front of the courthouse, Phoebe was sitting there, and Trista had had enough, and she went over and confronted her.

PINSKY: Jeff, what do you think happened to your granddaughter?

HANSON: I think -- this has been my contention since the first week, I think Justin had an accident with Trista. Nobody wants to believe that someone could do this purposely.

PINSKY: Danine, I wonder if you have a question for Jeff.

MANETTE: I do. I want to know how long the baby had been in his care when the baby`s arm was broken, because I`m trying to figure out how long she`d been there before she had her first accident.

HANSON: Well, the total time was 59 days. I believe it was months before she went missing. When she had the accident was November 17th, I believe.

PINSKY: Jeff, I`ve got to say, we`re going to have to take a break. Please stay with us. I`m going to keep Jeff. I`m going to keep the panel. And again, I`m talking to people who`ve been involved in these horrific cases. I hear the anguish in poor Jeff`s voice, and I`m sure it was all enflamed today by the court situation. Stay with us. We`re going to continue this conversation.

{Snipped as unrelated to Ayla}

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PINSKY: Back with the "Behavior Bureau," my co-host, Jenny Hutt, and we are going to look at Baby Ayla`s mother at the court house confronting Dipietro`s mother and Dipietro, himself. There she is. Janine, I wonder if you had a chance to look at this footage and what your thought. I would say, I see a desperate mom. I certainly see that. What do you see?

JANINE DRIVER, HUMAN LIE DETECTOR: Well, first of all, not only I see a desperate mom, but we hear her say "our daughter." You know, we spoke recently where someone didn`t say -- the baby in the microwave, the woman never said my baby or my daughter. Here she says, "our daughter," which is ownership. This tends to be someone who is telling the truth.

Now, with him, again, we`re not seeing this anger. We actually see a little bit of a smile on him. You see him raise his hands up over his head. This is like I give up, but the baby`s mom, Ayla`s mom is very interesting, very confrontational. Look, right in the mother`s face, the baby daddy`s mom`s face. Right there, confrontational.

However, Dr. Drew, I want to caution you, just because she`s aggressive and confrontational does not mean she`s not involved. Think about who is confrontational and aggressive that was a liar. Lance Armstrong. Lance Armstrong confrontational to the point where he sued people, destroyed their lives.

This is what we call gas lighting. Gas lighting is when one person attacks the other and we automatically give them the benefit of the doubt.

PINSKY: Yes, I get that. I hear you, Janine. I understand that, but my gut tells me something a little different. I appreciate you bringing that up. I`ve got on the phone Jeff Hanson who`s Baby Ayla`s step grandfather, the stepfather of the mom.

And Jeff, I`m going to ask you a crazy question, first off. The people have been sort of pointing at your stepdaughter and her extent in treatment for chemical dependency. To my eyes, she looks like a person who is secure in her sobriety. Am I right on that?

HANSON: Correct.

PINSKY: Yes. And so, that`s an issue for her. He, on the other hand, I`m not so sure. I don`t want to -- I can`t -- I`m purely speculating, I don`t know these people, but has that been a part of the problem here?

HANSON: You mean on Justin`s side?

PINSKY: Well, I don`t want to -- we can`t confirm or really confirm any of this. I don`t want to speculate, but I just wonder if, you know, -- I just feel like drugs and alcohol are sort of a cornerstone problem in all of this. And I feel like your stepdaughter is doing something about it. I`m not sure anybody else is.

HANSON: Well, let me tell you what I left out of the case -- actually, let me respond to what the previous caller -- I didn`t get the name -- they say police had stated publicly that a kidnapping did not take place. So, that rules out Trista, period.

And what -- in answer to your question, I left out -- what I left out, when I was putting it together, was one of the statements that the investigators said to Trista when they showed her this evidence was the (INAUDIBLE) that was littered with beer bottles. One of the detectives commented the house -- it looked like a hoarder`s house.

PINSKY: Hang on, Jeff. Casey, I wonder if you have a question for Jeff. Do you see the kind of road we`re going down here?

CASEY JORDAN, CRIMINOLOGIST: Yes, I do. I`m with you, Dr. Drew, on the idea that I think that Trista`s made enough progress in her recovery where she`s overcome her guilt, because she was in rehab. Is that correct? I want to ask her grandfather that. She was in rehab when Ayla went missing, correct?

HANSON: That is correct.

(CROSSTALK)

JORDAN: And she`s doing well now is what you`re saying. Yes. I think that Trista has made enough progress in her recovery. She actually feels like she has the upper hand over Justin and has the courage to get in his face over what she`s always believed.

PINSKY: Right.

JORDAN: But she couldn`t do that from a moral standpoint when she was having trouble with substance abuse.

PINSKY: Right. She --

JORDAN: So, that`s just clarity.

PINSKY: You`re right. Shame and guilt has lifted a little bit in her recovery. Jenny, you want to talk about this?

JENNY HUTT, ATTORNEY: Yes. I just want to say one thing to Janine. Janine, I understand that gas lighting thing you were talking about before, but if anyone gas lit, it was the police, it was the people who told her about the evidence and lit the fire under her. And so, she, to me, justifiably went at Justin. Every mother would go at Justin, right?

SAMANTHA SCHACHER, SOCIAL COMMENTATOR: Well, yes, and not only that, let`s talk about the fact that Justin failed his polygraph test. He took out a life insurance policy on Baby Ayla like weeks before that she was reported missing. Come on!

PINSKY: Janine, finish me up.

DRIVER: I just want to say --

(CROSSTALK)

DRIVER: There`s no definitive tell when someone is being deceptive, but at the end of the day, I put my money on Justin. There`s more to the story there. But you`ve got to keep an open mind.

PINSKY: Speaking of gas lit, I`ll give Danine the last word?

MANETTE: Yes. I still think we need to go after Courtney. She`s a mom, and she doesn`t want to lose her kid. She doesn`t want her kid taken away from her. She may have been involved. She needs to cut a deal with the D.A. and talk and they need to go after Courtney.

(CROSSTALK)

PINSKY: Danine is into the thumb screws, guys.

(CROSSTALK)

MANETTE: Yes, yes, yes.

PINSKY: Thank you, Danine --

MANETTE: You have to squeeze.

Regarding why Justin took baby Ayla from her, I disagree with Trista.  I think his true reason was much nastier and evil at it's core.

HLN | Baby Ayla's mother: I blame her father the most

By Alexandra Thomas | updated 4:11 PM EDT, Thu September 26, 2013

{Snipped}

"As a father, you have a job, you have a duty, you are to protect your child. That was the whole reason he took her from me, because he thought I was unstable to raise Ayla…I did a better job than he did," she said. "In my eyes, Justin is full to blame because he should have protected her and he should be the one to speak on her behalf. But all three of those people were in that house that night. All three of them know what happened to Ayla, and all three of them should be prosecuted for it.”

The statement by his mother is hardly worth mentioning, but I don’t see how see justifies her ‘hope.’

The video beneath is mostly a bunch of talking heads all speaking over each other, but I’ll link it for reference.  



Immediately below is a transcription of the note from Justin's mother, Phoebe.  At about 3:35 minutes in:
_________________________

Law Enforcement believe the 3 adults know more than what they are saying... if they so strongly believe that, why are they not asking the questions?  Why are they not scheduling meetings with my family or with my attorney?

We choose to hold on to hope that Ayla will be found and brought home.  If 3 adult women were held captive for over a decade and finally rescued then please believe there is hope Ayla will be found alive...

...Ayla, my granddaughter is out there live so please do not give up looking for her.

_________________________


I wonder what it is about the following that Justin’s mother doesn’t understand.  I guess she never researched to discover that the three women went missing without a trace.  No one found a room so full of blood that it looked like a crime scene at any of their residences.
_________________________

Quote:  “I’m sorry, but it’s the truth,” Reynolds said with tears in her eyes. “There was just, like, Ayla’s blood everywhere. There was blood on sheets, blood and saliva mixed on a mattress, blood on a fan cord, on the TV, VCR. There was blood found in Justin shoes, blood spattered on the walls,” Reynolds said. “There was a tote that had blood on it and in it, and then inside of that tote there was a white sheet that was wrapped up with all kinds of blood spots on it, like someone could have wrapped Ayla’s body in it. The blood was just everywhere.”
Reynolds said police told her that about a cup of blood was found in DiPietro's basement, and they had determined foul play was involved in her daughter's disappearance. Reynolds told Candiotti that police said the blood they found was from internal and external injuries, and after finding that much blood, they could determine Ayla wasn’t abducted. She said police also told her the people in the home that night, including Ayla’s father, “aren’t telling us the truth.”

What is the link between NOT arresting Justin?
Something smells so fishy with the lack of action on the part of the local LE I have to wonder...
Do we know if family members have connections with LE?
Do cousins/aunts/uncles share a business together?
Are they renting property or does some LE have a relative who is employed by someone in Justin's family and is relying on the income?
Is someone in a witness protection program and is being counted on for future testimony?

Something just is not right.

Waterville walk for Ayla Reynolds includes prayers, brief confrontation

March seeking 'justice' for missing toddler goes from City Hall to Violette Avenue home, where participants claim brief encounter with Elisha DiPietro, Ayla's aunt


Wearing T-shirts in honor of Ayla Reynolds today, three of about two dozen participants in a walk pray for the missing toddler at the Violette Avenue home where she was reported missing in December 2011. In the background is a photograph of Ayla Reynolds. Staff photo by David Leaming

Staff Writer


WATERVILLE — Starting in front of City Hall, a group of area residents, many wearing pink shirts with pictures of Ayla Reynolds on them, said a prayer today before walking to the 29 Violette Ave. home where the toddler was last seen Dec. 16, 2011.

~Snipped~

"We just want people to understand that Ayla deserves justice," Verdejo said. "She's an innocent child. She needs a voice and if it has to be us, then we'll do it."

The group said it had a brief confrontation with Elisha DiPietro, who was leaving the house on Violette Avenue. DiPietro, the sister of Ayla's father, Justin DiPietro, was one of the three adults at the house when Ayla disappeared.

"As she started to drive by she slowed down and we started saying 'Where's Ayla?' Out of her car window she said 'Why don't you ask Trista?'" Francis said. "It's just ridiculous."

Statement Analysis Blog | The Death of Ayla Reynolds Part Two: Child Abuse

Monday, September 30, 2013 | Peter Hyatt



{Snipped}

Ayla was said to have a black eye.

This was not good.

The excuse we heard was quite revelatory; that is, an insight into the life she lived, and died, in.

Justin DiPietro reportedly stated that "she got into a fight" in a ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese.  People jumped on the fact that there was no ball pit at the Chuck E Cheese restaurant, rather than hear what he said:

"She got into a fight."

Do you know any toddlers that "get into" fights?

They don't.  They're too young.  They might grab and push, but they do not "get into fights" and throw punches.  Yet, it is important to note that in his world, that is, a world of violence within the home, that he thought he could float a lie that only a violent household would accept.

Unexplained bruises and marks are the norm when someone has a fierce temper; one that will not accept his station in life.

Levi Page Show . com | Is Phoebe DiPietro covering for her guilty son?

Posted on September 29, 2013

Phoebe, and her daughter Elisha also retained the services of an attorney weeks after Ayla vanished. Phoebe claimed she was not in Waterville, Maine the night Ayla vanished, then why does she need a lawyer?

It’s obvious this woman is in defense mode and knows more about what happened to her granddaughter. She reminds me of Teresa Neves, the mother of Ronald Cummings, trying to divert attention away from her obviously guilty son and the unsavory characters that he chose to be around his daughter.

She makes me sick.

I emailed them months ago asking why if she is the number missing person in Maine why was she not listed on there website. Their response was "That is a good idea". Well maybe after Trista went public with all the blood info last week they decided instead of responding to what she had reported, they would put it on their website as if they are backing everything she said.

Nene I think that possibly little Ayla was not listed as LE may not consider her missing (per se), I believe that they considered her deceased and that they were thinking recovery! JMO as much as it hurts to say it!

Thanks for staying with this, Nan.
I came across the following link at the United for Ayla blog, and I thought of your comment, Freckles.

If you haven't seen it yet, it's quite interesting.  This is Tudela, Ayla's father's childhood friend.

Some suspect that he was one of the people with DiPietro around 2:00 am in Portland during the early morning hours of the day DiPietro reported Ayla missing.

http://www.waterville-me.gov/departments/police/content/1501/student-intern-program-2011.php

It is also suspected that DiPietro's mother has a friend with the Maine DHHS, and may have been behind the sudden phone call to have Ayla suddenly swept away from the care of her maternal Aunt and Grandmother.

Just sayin'

Sorry about that.

That picture just breaks my heart.  I agree, you can see the whole hand--fingers and thumb included.  I wonder who took that.  They must have realized what they were seeing.

Everything about this case makes me furious--who could see a child being so obviously abused and not reach out to help?  Who?
_________________________

@ Freckles:  In the spoiler I've enclosed some directions as to how to add a picture.  It looks much more complicated than it really is because I got too wordy and decided to add a few screen shots.  LOL

But I have bolded the important parts, so if those little bits make sense you won't need to read the whole thing.

Spoiler:
1.  Right click on the picture you want to add.  You should get a pop up menu that looks similar to the one below.  Scroll down to the very bottom and left click to select the word “Properties.”




2.  Click on “Properties.”  This will bring you to a pop up box that looks like the one below.  (Minus the red outlined box.)




3.  Select the address by left clicking at the start of the address and holding your mouse key down as you drag it over the address, (that I have put the red box around in the screen shot above.)  It should highlight.




4.  Once you have the address highlighted, right click in the highlighted area.  From the drop down menu that appears, left click to “Copy” the address.  (You can click the ‘cancel’ button to close this box once you have copied the address.)




5.  Go to where you want the picture to appear.  First left click the spot where you want your picture to appear; then right click.  Another drop down menu will appear.  Click the word “Paste,” and you should see the URL you previously copied appear.





6.  Now type what is in yellow highlighting in the box below at the very front of the address.  Then type what is show at the very end of the address.  (Because it is code it won’t show if I type it here.)

Type it just like I’m showing it in the shot below.  Don’t leave any spaces between the start and end of the address and the / is very important.




7.  And that it’s—you are done.  When you click the “Preview” button, you picture will be there.  (Like everything else on these computers, there is an alternate way to have the picture appear without manually typing in the square brackets every time.  I'll explain that way, too; if you want.)

These days I'm not often in agreement with Mr. Hyatt, but on Ayla's case I think he is pretty much on the mark.  He clearly states the following at the bottom of his post:  

Quoted and Snipped:  "The opinions here are only that of the author.  No one has been charged in this case, to date, and all are judicially given the status of Innocent until proven otherwise."

Oh, we all know DiPietro's great friend Tudela sold him the life insurance policy on sweet baby Ayla, right.

Statement Analysis Blog | The Death Of Ayla Reynolds Part III: Motive

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 | By Peter Hyatt

{Snipped}

Ayla Reynolds was a victim of child abuse which escalated to the point that the life insurance policy taken out against her looked more and more attractive.

The guilt that must run through the veins of the man that sold the policy must be so unbearable that he must deny it and defend it, instead, in order to cope.

Ayla Reynolds was unwanted but it was the Life Insurance policy against her that gave traction to the selfish love of money that ultimately was paid for by Ayla's spilled blood.

No greater love has man than he that lays down his life for another.  After two thousand years, this simple sentence remains as relevant as it was when first said.  Love sacrifices for others.

Ayla was sacrificed for money.

The motive was initially being unwanted, but it was the money, itself, that gave force and power that led, not to the spilling of blood, but to the greater intensity of spilling of Ayla's blood.  As her blood was spilled, it became a little less difficult with each blow against her.

Eventually, the lure money overwhelmed whatever restraint was still in place, and Ayla paid the ultimate price.

The love of money is the root of all evil.

Sadly, Ayla's life was cut short for this very reason.  It may not have started out that way, but it did end that way.

I know first hand that the life insurance on a child will not pay until an autopsy is performed if they are until 2 years old. My oldest granddaughter was 5 months old when she died and my parents had taken the Gerber life insurance on her. It was only $5000 but was not meant to bury her, it was for college later. I had to make the call to them once we had everything set up but they said it would be months so we borrowed money to make sure she had the best. It was about 6 months before they paid off. Also in Texas since my daughter and the father were never married that policy was split between both parents and that was not an option but here in Texas if you have life insurance and you do not put down your spouse as the beneficiary they are noticed of that.

Nan-
The link for Adam Tudela is very interesting!
http://www.waterville-me.gov/departments/police/content/1501/student-intern-program-2011.php

I was trying to recall the name of the person Justin was with when a person complained of walking down the street and Justin and another person drove up and tried to engage the walker in a fight.
IIRC, and that is doubtful, it may have been Justin and his brother?
Justin and a friend?
IIRC, alcohol was involved and an arrest was made.
This was around the time Ayla disappeared...

I am now curious as to what happened to Adam more recently.
Is it still in close contact with Justin?

I had heard of someone at social services being friends with someone connected to Ayla. I wasn't sure who and it has been a long time since I read that. Thanks for clarity!

BBM - Yes, you are right about that.  Justin was driving the car and his brother, Lance, did the beating--to their sister, Elisha's, ex.  (The father of her child.)

Here are a couple of articles about that.

And, yes, I believe Justin and Adam are still buddy buddy.  (He was not involved in the street brawl, though.) Adam's mother is quite outspoken in the defense of Justin, is my understanding.

Kennebec Journal | Ayla's uncle calls fight 'unfortunate'

By Ben McCanna bmccanna@centralmaine.com | February 8, 2012

{Snipped}

Linnell is the father of Ayla's cousin, Gabriella Linnell. He is not married to Gabriella's mother, Elisha DiPietro, Justin and Lance DiPietro's sister. A protection-from-abuse order forbids Linnell from seeing his daughter or her mother, according to court records.

"I just wanted to confront him and maybe have a war of words. It's pretty unfortunate that things escalated the way they did," Lance DiPietro said.

A short fight ensued. DiPietro knocked Linnell to the ground and kicked him in the face, according to police. DiPietro then got back into his brother's car and they continued toward Fairfield.

Justin DiPietro said he was unaware of the fight.

This is a very decent read, too.  I get what he is saying, but I'm afraid that we are looking at "no justice at all."

They are quite bold and smirky--which translates to me that they are pretty confident no further traces of beautiful baby Ayla will ever be found.

We need a miracle.

Portland Press Herald | Bill Nemitz: Justice for Ayla is easier demanded than done

September 27 | By Bill Nemitz bnemitz@pressherald.com, Columnist | 2 page write-up

Contacted Thursday in Augusta, Deputy Attorney General Bill Stokes said for the umpteenth time that he can't discuss the details of an investigation that appears, at least for now, to have dead-ended.

{Snipped}

Someday, we can only hope, Ayla Reynolds will get the justice she deserves for what even police now concede was a tiny life cut short.

But as her grieving mother and grandfather now take their battle to the streets, they'd do well to consider the legacy of all-but-forgotten Eva Marie Knowles, who was a month younger than Ayla the night someone spilled her innocent blood:

Justice delayed, however painful, is better than no justice at all.

United for Ayla | On the Other Side of the Crime Scene Tape

Posted October 2, 2013

"In addition to the visible blood described in The Case for Ayla, there were two luminol photos:

The living room diagram shows both the visible silver-dollar-sized stain and blood evidence detected with luminol. The luminol evidence consisted of blood spatter surrounding the visible stain. This shows that Ayla lost significant blood while on or adjacent to the DiPietro’s living room couch.

The second luminol photo Trista saw was of Justin’s bedroom in the basement. This photo was a room overview photo with luminol highlighting additional blood in the general areas visible blood was found in the room. The photo was so upsetting to Trista that she is unable to recall it with any greater specificity and the slideshow was stopped.

As indicated in the crime scene diagram, the unfinished basement was littered with beer bottles; one of the detectives commented (during the slideshow) that the house was dirty and was “one step away from being a hoarder’s house”."

crime scene diagram

It was said on one of the blogs that they really did not know where the pink slippers were so they put them in her bedroom because they could not just place them outside or any other place so they choose to put them in a logical area. As it said at the top of the diagram that it is unofficial so this was pieced together so people could get a sense of what was shown or told to Trista. If I remember reading is correct, there were 3 members of the MSP and a grief counselor on hand when Trista, Alex and his mother where there to review the slides. I have wonder if it would help for Alex and his mother to come forward to answer questions because some feel that Trista has in the past mixed things go or given half truths so it makes Justin look bad more. I feel she is not mixing things up because of anger but remembering ever little details of what has happen to her daughter. It has played over and over in her head until she had to let it out and that was the reason for her to go public with it. Also it seem strange that the MSP did not back her up but finally put Ayla on their missing page of their website with details that the 3 in the house were not telling the truth. Seems to me they are backing what Trista said but not out loud. I still feel Justin did something to Ayla before everyone arrived at the house Friday night and they were informed and are covering for him. The mothers will not come forward at this point because of the fear of losing their own kids overrides the care for Ayla. The 2 mothers may also not know the details of how she died but hearing all the details of the blood, they have to know Ayla is not alive and Justin is a evil person which meaning they may be scared of him too. He just got off of assault charges because Courtney would not go to court to testify against him and they are no longer together so why else would she just walk away? Her son is one reason. Makes you want to beat it out of him but then it makes you as evil as him. Unless the police come up with something I am afraid this is going no where.Sad

Bold by me - yes, I linked the blog in my comment, but thank you for pointing that out specifically.

The MSP may not have backed Trista, but they didn't deny it either.  I think they have made it pretty clear on their website:

Quote:  "Investigators have ruled out any possibility that Ayla left the house on her own or that she was abducted."

I agree that until, or unless, they lay charges, they will never say more.

For those who are covering for the person who did this, I have no compassion--no matter what their reasons may be.  It is simply unconscionable.

For the one who did this, we must remember that his blows were directed at an innocent, helpless, defenseless, beautiful baby.  A baby.

Ayla Reynolds’ mother keeping door open to suing state over toddler’s disappearance

Posted Oct. 09, 2013, at 3:33 p.m.

Snipped:
-----
AUGUSTA, Maine — Trista Reynolds, the mother of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds, continues to keep open her option to sue state government for an unspecified amount of money because the Department of Health and Human Services put Ayla in her father’s custody before she disappeared in December 2011.

According to a document that was filed in June 2012, which was obtained Tuesday by the Bangor Daily News through a Freedom of Access Act request, Reynolds could seek damages for “severe emotional distress, deprivation of constitutional rights, injuries, and other compensatory, consequential and punitive damages, as determined by a jury.”

Reynolds’ attorney, Brian J. Hansen of Portland, said Wednesday that he filed the notice on behalf of Reynolds to keep open the possibility of a lawsuit against the state, though he said none is imminent, “not in the near future.”

Thanks for this link, CP.

I hope Trista does more than just keep the option to sue open.  I hope she forces the action.  That way, it will keep Ayla's case in the news; and keep pressure on those who are responsible for what happened to Ayla.

She definitely has a winnable case against the DHHS.  

But that is a little bit beside my point.

The following is quoted from the "Asking for Ayla" blog.  Jeff Hanson is Trista's step-father.

Why, oh why, would the authorities have taken beautiful Ayla and placed her with a 'father' who never, ever wanted her.

Prayers for Ayla to be found.

BDN Mid-Maine | More than 30 officials searching area in Oakland for Ayla Reynolds
Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013    Last update: 1:33 p.m.

OAKLAND, Maine — Numerous law enforcement officials began canvassing a wooded area in Oakland early Wednesday morning in an effort to locate missing toddler Ayla Reynolds.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said Wednesday in a news release that more than 30 personnel from Oakland police, Maine State Police, four canine teams, state police divers and game wardens are participating in the search.

Search efforts are being focused on an area off Hussey Hill Road, McCausland said. He would not go into further detail about the cause of the search. A warden told the BDN late Wednesday morning that searchers are focusing on both sides of Hussey Hill Road.

After search in Oakland, ‘We did not find Ayla’

About 30 Maine State Police, wardens service and Waterville police officers searched a wooded area with four search-dog teams and divers today.

By Amy Calder acalder@centralmaine.com
Staff Writer


OAKLAND — A morning-long search of a wooded area in Oakland did not uncover missing toddler Ayla Reynods or any clues to her disappearance.

“The upshot is, we did not find Ayla,” said Steve McCausland, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman at a 1:15 press conference.

He said a lead led to the search.

More than 30 police and game wardens are searching a wooded area, including a pond, in Oakland this morning looking for missing Waterville child Ayla Reynolds, who has been missing for nearly two years.

Fox 22 | Report: Ayla Reynolds 'Terrified' of Father
Written by  Jared Pliner | 23 October, 2013

In an independent investigative piece entitled, "The Taking of Ayla Reynolds," Terrilyn Simpson -- who's written extensively on Department of Health and Human Services child protective issues -- reports Ayla Reynolds was "visibly afraid of her father," Justin DiPietro.

Read more:  http://www.foxbangor.com/news/local-news/3366-report-ayla-reynolds-terrified-of-father.html

Below is the complete blog article to which Mr. Pliner is referring.  This got pretty much overshadowed today with the unexpected search occurring, but is well worth a read.

United For Ayla | The Taking of Ayla Reynolds
By Terrilyn Simpson | October 23, 2013
The untold story of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services involvement in the case of a missing child.


Ayla Reynolds, now presumed dead, was visibly afraid of her father. On the day he came to get her, up until the moment she saw him, she’d been a happy child. A Lewiston police officer who entered the apartment first, described the one-and-a-half-year-old towheaded toddler as, “laughing, playing and attempting to make conversation with me.”

{Snipped}

The officer told the aunt that Karen Small of Child Protective Services (a division of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services) had “authorized the custody.” Small is listed as an Office of Child and Family Services Supervisor at Portland DHHS. When Dipietro had arrived at the Lewiston Police Station a short time before, requesting the police accompany him to “retrieve” his daughter, the officer who met with him recorded, “I consulted my supervisor….who stated that he had been on the phone with Child Protective Services and had spoken with Karen Small who in fact had authorized Dipietro to take custody of his daughter.” Reportedly, no paperwork changed hands.

Link from above.
http://united4ayla.com/the-taking-of-ayla-reynolds/#comment-751584

" ... Although under Maine law both parents would have had equal parental rights, absent any formal custody agreement, Ayla had always lived with Trista. DHHS records indicate she’d spent only a few hours at a time with Justin – never an overnight. And even more puzzling, Small documented in the October 17 log, “I explained to Phoebe that the decision for the children to go with Jessica on Friday was not made by the Department. I let her know that we were there with Trista when Trista made the plan for the children to go with Jessica and that her son (Justin) was aware of that plan and supported the children going to Jessica for the weekend.”

The entry indicates that the parents – Trista and Justin – did have at least a short term custody agreement. It was an agreement in which Phoebe played no part. Altering the custody arrangement required a civil action – not a decision by a state child protective worker.

In such instances, the parent disputing the current custody setup would file in Maine District Court a petition for parental rights and responsibilities, according to Maine Attorney Brian Condon, who is not involved in the case. And the matter would be legally decided in the family court division of district court. Small would have no standing in this process.

The matter would be decided by a judge – not by DHHS’s Karen Small. Even if Small felt that a child should be removed because it was in danger, Small would have to file an affidavit with the court and obtain a temporary jeopardy order allowing DHHS to remove the child. And that order would be signed by a judge – not by Small. It’s not clear why no documentation was required when Small told Lewiston Police she’d authorized custody.

The scenario, as it unfolded, suggests, observes Condon that a DHHS employee “used the power of the state to effect or create an outcome in what should be a civil action between two parents....."

Wow, Nan.  Thanks for providing the link to the "The Taking of Ayla Reynolds" article on united4ayla site.  Just horrible to find out how irresponsibly DHHS personnel acted, that ultimately led to Ayla's disappearance.  The very people who were supposed to protect children!  That just makes this case that much sadder.

It does, CP.  This case is really heartbreaking.  I pray every night and every morning that they find this beautiful child--in whatever conditions she is in.

She deserves to be brought home; and to receive some measure of justice.

It's rumored that the women mentioned is a friend to DiPietro's mother--it is only a rumor, though. However, it is a rumor that I would not be surprised to discover has a great deal of truth to it.

Mom of Maine tot missing 2 years presses police

January 23, 2014 7:24 AM

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — The mother of a missing toddler and supporters are rallying this weekend at the Waterville Police Department to demand answers from law enforcement officials.

Trista Reynolds and her father are participating in the event Saturday in Waterville, where her 22-month-old daughter was reported missing on Dec. 17, 2011. The girl's father told investigators that he last saw the youngster the night before when he put her to bed.

Investigators believe Ayla Reynolds is no longer alive.

Waterville justice protest planned for Ayla Reynolds

A group demanding action on the missing toddler’s case plans to meet Saturday at the police department on Colby Street.

Updated: 8:44 PM


WATERVILLE — Groups demanding justice in the case of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds are planning a protest Saturday at the police department on Colby Street.

The event, Press for Prosecution Protest, will be held at noon, with protesters gathering at 11:30 a.m., according to organizers.

“It has been 25 months now and there have been no charges filed in the disappearance and death of 20-month-old Ayla Reynolds, despite the overwhelming blood evidence found in the father’s home,” an organizer, Heather Garczynski, wrote in an email this week to media outlets, state police, legislators and others.

that transcription is somewhat disappointing since it is only released now… I would like to hear the call… it is too brief and really does not give a sense of the the context. JMO

Ayla Reynolds’ mother seeks continued child support

Posted Nov. 03, 2014, at 6:53 p.m.

AUGUSTA, Maine — There’s a hearing this week to decide whether the father of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds should continue to pay child support for the girl.

Justin Dipietro reported Ayla missing from his home almost three years ago.

For the past year, Trista Reynolds, Ayla’s mother, has received an $82 check once a week from Justin Dipietro. It’s a child support payment for their missing daughter, Ayla.

...When asked why Reynolds thinks Dipietro should pay even though police don’t believe their daughter is alive, Trista said that “some people might feel that way, but I feel that until Ayla’s body is found and brought back to me, he should still be responsible for her.”

COLD CASE SPOTLIGHT: Ayla Reynolds

It's been more than three years since 20-month-old Ayla Reynolds vanished from her father's home in Waterville, Maine.

"This is still active and ongoing," Public Safety Spokesperson Steve McCausland told NBC affiliate WCSH6. "This case is the largest criminal case in Maine history. We are as determined today as we were three years ago."



Ayla was reported missing by her father, Justin DiPietro, who called 911 the morning of December 17th, 2011, after he said Ayla was missing from her crib. "We still feel that those three adults in that home that night know more than they've told us, and our doors are always open to tell the full story," McCausland said.
