1. Single, unemployed young male grew up with reputation as a bully along with his brother. Small, hot tempered and entitled, he learned that he was a father and fumed over child support payments.
2. He attempted to get custody to stop child support payments. He is rumored to be a low level street drug dealer, mostly in oxys and vicodin.
3. While having the child (Baby Ayla) at his mother's home, Ayla experiences a series of injuries and ill explained bruises. This culminates in a broken arm in which neither he nor his mother sought medical attention for at least 24 hours.
4. Father is unable to control his temper and cannot hold even a menial job. He also has another child by another young woman. He purchases a life insurance policy against Baby Ayla's life, although she is healthy, betting on a large sum of money to come in to him in the event that said healthy baby dies. He does not buy life insurance against the other child's life.
5. While in his care, father text messages the mother expressing fear that baby will be taken by someone.
6. Approximately Six weeks from the purchase of the life insurance, he calls 911 to report her "missing" and "taken" by someone.
7. Tough guy father says he is "emotionally incapable" of speaking to media so that he can 'negotiate' with the kidnapper to get his child back.
8. Police investigation uncovers:
a. cleaned up blood in the basement found by luminol
b. Evidence of "foul play"
c. Announce that Ayla is dead
d. indicate that father failed polygraph and is not cooperating.
9. Father keeps up payments on Baby Ayla's life insurance so he can cash in when she is declared legally dead.
What makes for the collateral damage in this case is two young lives that are not spoken of mostly.
In the home on the night that Ayla Reynolds met with "foul play" and her blood was spilled, were two adult women with their two babies. Courtney Roberts, girlfriend of Justin DiPietro, and Elisha DiPietro, sister of Justin DiPietro, and their young children.
What did police say about Courtney Roberts and Justin DiPietro?
Police publicly announce that they are also, both lying, with indication that Elisha DiPietro failed her polygraph, while Courtney Roberts refused to take one.
If a child's blood is found and police publicly state that the two mothers are lying, how is this not legal jeopardy to both of the babies in the home?
This remains a mystery in the case.
Two mothers who are willing to lie, via withholding information to police about the whereabouts of a toddler both pose a risk to their own children, who are incapable of self defense.
How is this not child endangerment?
If it is that prosecutors have balked because they fear having a jury listen to the only three eye witnesses conspire and lie, how is it that Child Protective Services has not intervened on behalf of the other two children?
It is too late to save Ayla, but what of the other two children?
They continue under the care of their mothers who lied to police about the safety of a baby.
Are they exposed to the violence of Justin DiPietro and his brother, Lance DiPietro?
Months after this, the DiPietro hunger for violence continued as Justin DiPietro's brother, Lance DiPietro, who has seen too many episodes of The Sopranos while far too young, drove with Justin DiPietro to beat up the father of Elisha DiPietro's baby, using a baseball bat and a two on one odds maker. Lance got a slap on the wrist and Justin, driver of the getaway car, was not even summonsed.
While on probation, Lance sent this author emails hoping to meet, face to face.
Lance would do well to remember that this author is not the size of Baby Ayla.
|fun to meet....|
There are other ways to prosecute. Note what took place here as an example of prosecuting on circumstantial evidence without a child's body.
