Justin DiPietro, single unemployed father of two children from two mothers, took out a life insurance policy against one of the children. The target of the life insurance policy suffered a series of injuries consistent with child abuse, including wrenching of the legs and a broken arm in which medical intervention was not sought for 24 hours.
He then sent text messages feigning concern that someone might take Baby Ayla, the target of his life insurance policy, telegraphing his plans.
Less than 2 months later, Ayla went "missing", leaving a trail of blood throughout the home and vehicle.
DiPietro failed his polygraph and deception was indicated from him, his sister, and his mother, including an initial past tense reference early on; a verbal indication that Ayla was deceased.
Nancy Grace picked up the story, giving it national attention, meaning that there was a good chance that a celebrity high powered attorney might be willing to take on DiPietro's case pro bono.
State prosecutors have declined to move forward with justice in spite of the simple explanation of the case (for those who insist that jurors must have a motive) and the trail of blood.
How much blood must be found in the home to satisfy prosecutors' "beyond a reasonable doubt" burden of proof?
Justin DiPietro has been protected by women. He issued a challenge to Nancy Grace to spend 24 hours in his shoes, but would not answer the door from NG producers, while being defended by his mother, his sister, his girlfriend, and his buddy's mother, who's own son sold DiPietro the ill fated policy, piggy backing a bet against Ayla in a larger insurance package.
