The DiPietros and Company

What Really Happened to Ayla Bell Reynolds?

According to Ayla Reynolds’ own mother, Justin DiPietro is the last person to have seen Ayla alive. Courtney Roberts, Justin’s girlfriend, and Elisha DiPietro, his sister, are also said to have been at 29 Violette Avenue the night Ayla went missing. Phoebe DiPietro, Justin’s mother, lied on television, first claiming to have been home that night, then claiming she was elsewhere. Derek Tudela, a longtime friend, sold Justin a $25,000 life insurance policy for Ayla.

During the past year, Justin DiPietro and his family have made very few statements to the media. The Maine State Police have announced that the DiPietros and Courtney Roberts are not telling everything they know about Ayla’s disappearance. On January 28th, 2012, police revealed that Ayla’s blood had been found on the floor of Justin DiPietro’s bedroom. The DiPietros and friends have been strangely quiet since that time and have never given a direct plea for the return of Ayla Bell Reynolds.

Justice For Ayla find their scant statements and unusual behavior very telling. What do you think?

The Tragic Life of Phoebe DiPietro

by Grace4Ayla on June 22, 2015

Recently Maine Governor Paul LePage has been in a battle with the Maine legislature over the 2015 year budget. Part of the dissension is the funding of  the “cold case squad” supported by the mother of missing toddler Ayla Bell Reynolds. What seems strange to me is the silence of Ayla’s grandmother, Phoebe DiPietro. She […]

The Parent Trap: Cooper Harris and Ayla Reynolds

by Grace4Ayla on July 12, 2014

On June 18, 2014, around 9:20 am, Justin Ross Harris strapped his 22 month-old son, Cooper Harris, into his too small, rear-facing car seat and drove the short distance to his place of work. Normally, Justin Ross Harris would drop off Cooper at the onsite daycare, located in a different building around the corner, but […]
