Ayla Reynolds’ mother, grandfather, and step-grandfather say their attorney believes there is not yet enough evidence to file suit against Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, claiming wrongful death.
Friday marks 5-years since Ayla went missing from her father’s home in Waterville, Maine. She was 21-months-old at the time and had been living there while her mother, Trista Reynolds, was in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction.
DiPietro’s mother, Phoebe DiPietro, owned the home but was not there the night Ayla disappeared. DiPietro’s sister, Elisha DiPietro and his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts were at the home. State police have said those three people know more about this case than they have told police.
In the basement and throughout the DiPietro’s home as well as in Justin’s vehicle, blood had been discovered by police. ‘More than a cup full of blood’, has been the terminology used to describe the amount.
Trista’s family believes that Justin DiPietro is to blame for Ayla’s death. (As does just about everyone else who has ever heard of this tragic case). Trista Reynolds’ stepfather, Jeff Hanson, said he heard from the family’s attorney Wednesday morning and the attorney stated that there was not enough evidence to prove a civil case against Justin DiPietro.
Hanson said, “The biggest thing holding everyone back is witnesses, credible witnesses. There’s a lot of incredible witnesses. There’s a lot of blanks into what happened before Ayla went missing. So we want to ask anyone who was at the Dipietro’s home to come forward.”
Reynolds and Hanson said even people who may have visited the home three weeks before Ayla was reported missing could be helpful.
Trista does plan to take steps to obtain a legal declaration that the youngster died.
How three, rather uneducated individual’s were able to get away with losing a small child for five-years is beyond many. With the amount of people involved, law enforcement and small town antics…it is truly mind-blowing.
Here you can read the transcript of the 911 call made by Justin DiPietro the morning of December 17th, 2011, the day Ayla supposedly went ‘missing’. The call is broken down and analyzed by a professional profiler.
If anyone has any information regarding the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds, they are urged to contact the Waterville Police Department.
