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?

One of the more puzzling aspects in the disappearance of Ayla Bell Reynolds has been the extensive involvement of the Tudela family, including Darrell Tudela, Heidi Tudela and their son, Derek. Not only did Derek sell Justin DiPietro the oh so suspicious life insurance policy against Ayla (see also: Investigating the LIP), but his family […]

Since Ayla Reynolds disappeared from her father’s home on Dec. 17, 2011, I have had plenty of practice analyzing the statements of Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds. I am always struck by how vague and uncommitted her words seem to be, especially concerning her daughter. For this article, I decided to do a comparison between Trista […]
