Today, December 17, 2014, Ayla Bell Reynolds has been missing for three years. At 20-months old, Ayla was reportedly taken from her bed in the night, while two other children and three adults (Justin DiPietro, Courtney Roberts, and Elisha DiPietro) slept only yards away. Since that night three years ago, Maine State Police have concluded that no abduction took place, and found troubling amounts of Ayla’s blood on her father’s basement bedroom floor. Police also assert that the three adults who were present are not telling all they know about Ayla’s disappearance.
When I realized in June of 2012 that Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, and Jeff Hanson, spokesperson for the Reynolds family, were actually protecting and working with Justin DiPietro and Courtney Roberts to obscure the truth of what really happened to Ayla, not only from the public, but likely the authorities as well, I called Maine State Police and provided them with all the information and resources I had. My hope was that investigators might find it useful in solving this case and finally put poor Ayla to rest. Alas, this has not yet come to pass. [click to continue…]
