An Update on No Updates

by Grace4Ayla on June 28, 2013

There have been no recent updates on the disappearance of Ayla Bell Reynolds. For the most part, both sides of Ayla’s family, as well as Maine State Police, have gone eerily silent, save for one cryptic message found on one of the blogs.

It’s as if they aren’t even trying to hide the fact that this is how they are communicating. Let’s take a look at their most recent transparent attempts to see what is going on “behind the scenes.”

Same Sh*t, Different Day

When last we left our bungling anti-heroes, Jeff Hanson, official spokesperson for Trista Reynolds, had given up all hope in finding a way to make the “kidnapping” scenario work. It seemed he threw up his hands and left the “kids” to their fate, what with the “unequivocal” evidence of Ayla’s death being thrown into the mix.

Jeff even went to the trouble to discuss the kidnapping scenario, after all their denials, yet again with detectives to no avail.

Yet when James Graham reared his ugly head, Jeff was suddenly right back to his old tricks! He even tried to poke at the DiPietros and their supporters with this remark:

Maybe the time is right for the DiPietros and/or supporters to be a part of the solution..

The reply wasn’t immediate, but it eventually would be seen via the Just Stop The Lies blog. In the title of the latest post, the word “NEVER” in all caps.

The post itself is…strange to say the least.

Never Say Never

Posted on 6/17/2013 – JustStopTheLies:

I still believe that Ayla is out there somewhere ALIVE.

That belief will never change, but many other things in my life have.

I realize that my approach in the beginning was harsh.

Win some, lose some.

I haven’t been scared off by anyone—not by those of you with ill will, and not by those of you with good intentions who may be thinking that I thought you had ill will. (that makes sense, yeah?)

There has been no update. Nothing. Unless you count Ronald Reynolds’ arrest for assaulting a family member.

Do something productive.

In due time…

Maine State Police: it was beyond high time for you to put up or shutup. Seeing as how you all have been silent, I’m seeing what option you chose.


Obscure starts out stating that they “still believe” Ayla is “out there”  and “somewhere” alive. If the shortest sentence is the most honest (i.e. “I believe Ayla is alive somewhere”) then it seems Obscure doesn’t “still believe” what they are saying. Further proof is in the word “that” which is distancing. Why is Obscure distancing themselves from their belief? Deception indicated.

Use of the words “somewhere” and “out there” indicate a need to hide where Ayla is, which could mean Obscure knows this information.

In the next sentence we see Obscure further distance themselves from the first statement by again using the word “that” in conjunction with “belief.” They then go on to negate this same belief with the word “but” (behold the underlying truth) to explain that their life had changed. Yet they offer no explanation as to what has changed, and how it affects the belief that Ayla is alive. Why is it so important to state their life had changed, even if their belief had not? Anything stated in the negative is doubly important.

I am not going to use Statement Analysis on the entire post, however. Frankly, most of it doesn’t make much sense.

The most interesting part is the direct message to Maine State Police. Why would an unconnected blogger (this is still claimed despite the fact that Katie Hitchens, devoted friend and Justin DiPietro supporter, says she knows this blogger personally) be talking directly to MSP on their website? Is Obscure implying here that Maine State Police have opted for “shutting up,” or, in other words, backing down in their attempts to blame the DiPietros for Ayla’s disappearance?

Only time will tell, but time is not on the DiPietros side, regardless of how much their lives may have changed. The lives of many involved in this masquerade are changing, and not for the better. How long can Justin count on everyone remaining quiet? Maybe no one knows exactly what happened to Ayla, but enough people know enough things that, when put together, form the whole picture. Who knows what one of them may do if pushed to the breaking point?

Perhaps law enforcement in Maine is backing down. As the old saying goes, there is more than one way to skin a cat. Maybe it’s time to think outside the box.
