Statement Analysis: Justin DiPietro's 911 Call



Analysis by Peter Hyatt

The following is Statement Analysis of the 911 emergency call made by Justin DiPietro to report his child, Ayla Reynolds, missing, from his home.

Statement Analysis is in bold type.

We use the SCAN method of analysis, which sets up The "Expected" versus the "Unexpected"

Very simply this means that we begin by asking ourselves what we expect to hear from the father of a missing child.

The SCAN technique (Scientific Content Analysis) deals with not only the words spoken, but what words are missing from a statement.

When we find the "expected" words missing, we are left to deal with the "unexpected", confronting the words and absence of words, to learn, in this case:

Are there signals present which indicate that the caller has guilty knowledge of what happened to his child?

Is Justin DiPietro a "guilty caller", feigning a missing or kidnapped child report to police in order to cover criminal activity?

Justin DiPietro, father of two children, while unemployed, took out a life insurance policy against one of his children, Ayla Reynolds, and not his other, weeks before making this call. Is this call a genuine call for help for Ayla, or is it a deceptive ruse to cover a crime?

Statement Analysis gets to the truth.

II.  The text and analysis
III.  Analysis Conclusion


I.  The Expected

What do we expect Justin DiPietro to say to the 911 operator about his daughter, Ayla Reynolds?

In a call to report a missing child, we expect the caller to seek help for the child, and express concern for the child.

We look for a complete social introduction indicative of a good relationship:  "my daughter, Ayla" is a good sign, using her name, title, and the possessive pronoun.

We look for a sense of urgency.  A child is in danger...imminent danger.

We look for a sense of need, since the child is incapable of self protection, and expressions of such.  We think the parent might mention that she needs her "blankie" or her "binkie" or favorite toy, medicine, or food.

We look for a deep rooted panic and parental anxiety, protective instincts inflamed from the caller, with a sense of urgency, not for himself, but for his child.

We listen for a sense of impotency and utter frustration and fear, in a parent, left utterly bereft of strength to help his vulnerable child.

We listen for impatience, even rudeness, as the father cares only for his child, and not politeness, or worse, over-politeness, in a manner more consistent of guilt.

We expect to even hear foul language as the father of a missing child may become unhinged at the thought of terrors facing his beloved daughter.

Will he ask for help for Ayla?

How often will he use his daughter's name while speaking of her?

Will he ask for help in finding her?

Will he offer tips to the police to assist them?

We do not expect a dull, scripted call, with a bare minimum of information given.  We expect to hear a father filled with resolve in finding his daughter.

II.  The transcript with Statement Analysis in bold type.



911:  Where is your emergency?

In Enhanced 911 systems, this is unnecessary and the better question is, "What is your emergency?" which allows the caller to chose his own words and begin his response according to his own priority. 

A:    *** Waterville

911:  "What's going on there?"

Instead of "What is the emergency?"

JD:    "Ah, I woke up this morning, my daughter is not here."

Please note that the order of the call:

"I woke up this morning" is mentioned first.  What is first said in an emergency often speaks to priority.  To this caller, that he was asleep is first.

"my daughter is not here" is a truthful statement.  He does not say she is "missing", only that she is "not here."  To a deceptive caller, "missing" would not be truthful.  Only that she is "not here" is reported.

People rarely lie directly, as lying causes internal stress.  Most lies are by omission, or missing information.  

Order speaks to priority.  What is most important to the caller is that police believe he was asleep, by reporting first that he "woke up"

Please notice, however, the additional wording, "this morning", which is not necessary.  This should make investigators question whether or not he was asleep, since he does not say so, and he feels the necessity of adding that he woke up "this morning."

Please note the name:  "my daughter" is "not here", and not, "my daughter, Ayla" or "my daughter, Ayla Bell..."

This is an incomplete social introduction (ISI) and may suggest a troubled relationship.  

Commentary:  This can be seen in light of the reports of physical abuse of Ayla at the hands of her father including a black eye, injured legs, and a verified broken arm, which timely medical intervention was not sought by Justin DiPietro. 

911:  Okay, how old is she?

JD: She is an infant she's only twenty months years old.

Here is the mention of her young age.  It is that she is "only" twenty months that means she is vulnerable and incapable of self protection.  It is here we expect to hear something about her characteristics, particularly in regard to being so young.

Nothing more is reported, however.  This is not expected. 

911: She is how old?

JD: Twenty months old.

911: Twenty months old?

JD:  She's not even two- twenty months old.

911: Was there anybody else with you overnight?

The question is specifically to "overnight"

"Overnight" is when he would have been asleep if he woke up this morning.  The answer should be in the past tense. 

JD: My sister's here, her daughter and my girlfriend and her son are here.

Note that he does not say if they were there overnight, but speaks in the present tense. 
Note the order:
1.  Sister
2.  Her daughter
3.  my girlfriend
4.  her son

Please note the incomplete social introduction as he does not use his sister, Elisha's name, nor does he use his girlfriend, Courtney Roberts' name.

911:  Hang on, I'm putting you through- this is in Waterville?

JD: Yes sir.

911: What number are you calling me from case I lose you?

JD: (sigh) ***-****

911: Okay, hang on, I'm putting you through, do not hang up.

      (dial tone/telephone ringing)

WCC: Waterville Communications Center, what's the address of emergency?

911: DPS Augusta.  I'm putting through a report of a missing child from a residence at *******.

WCC: Okay.

911: Sir, go ahead.

WCC: Hello.

JD: Hello.

A greeting is not expected, though this is simply responding to the greeting, therefore, appropriate. 

WCC:  Hi, How long ago did you see your child?

JD: When I put her to-

Note interruption likely due to phone going dead. 

AV: December 17, 2011
      08:56:00

911: 911, where is your emergency?

JD: Yeah, I, I was just, I'd called, my phone just died and I have another cell phone now, so

Please note the stuttering on the pronoun, "I", which shows increase in anxiety.  Please note that the pronoun "I" is used millions of times and is not likely to be stuttered on since its focus is the person itself, unless the person is a stutterer.  Note no other stuttering. 

In Statement Analysis, this is called the "stuttering I of anxiety", since humans are highly efficient at using this pronoun.  

911: okay, where are you located?

JD: *******

911: ********, is this regarding the juvenile?

JD: It is, yes sir. 

Note the respectful and short response.  The respectful response is not expected during such an emergency, and neither is such short responses.  An overly respectful 911 call may cause some to question whether the caller is trying to 'make peace' or 'be friends' with law enforcement, rather than the demanding of help for the child. 

911: Hang on, I'll put you back through Waterville Com.

    (dial tone/telephone ringing)

WCC: Waterville Communication Center, what is the address of your emergency?

911: DPS, putting through

JD: Yes ma'am I was just on the phone with you and my cell phone died.

Note again that while his toddler is missing, he has the presence of mind to use respectful language.  Those who know him best would be able to say whether or not this is his norm.  This is not evidenced by his other statements.  It is not his norm, according to his televised interviews. 

That he would be very polite to police, while under such extreme circumstances, is indicative of one attempting to please police and be seen in a favorable light, rather than a frightened, urgent father. 

WCC: Okay yep, I tried calling you back it went right to voicemail.  What is your daughter's name sir?

                          END

WCC: Waterville Communication Center, what is the address of your emergency?

911: DPS Augusta- putting through a report of a missing child from a residence at *****.

WCC: Okay.

911: Sir, go ahead.

WCC: Hello

JD: Hello

WCC:  Hi, how long ago did you see your child?

The question is specific to Justin DiPietro:  how long ago, which is time period, did you, Justin, see your child:  

JD: When I put her to bed  last night.  My sister had checked on her.  Um, woke up this morning, went to her room, and she's not there. 

Any information that goes past the boundary of the question is to be considered very important information. 

1.  He answers the question with:  "when I put her to bed last night." instead of saying "when I put her to bed"; he adds, "last night" which is not necessary.  This unnecessary information, along with woke up "this morning" brings the time frame to the place of being considered "sensitive" information that may prove unreliable. 

2.  He went beyond the boundary of the question:  "my sister had checked on her" and not "my sister, Elisha," or "Elisha";

3.  "my sister had checked on her" using "had" to elongate time.  This makes the time frame, again, sensitive.  "My sister checked her" would have been sufficient. 

4.  "Woke up this morning" has dropped the pronoun "I" making it unreliable. He does not say that he woke up this morning, therefore, we cannot say it for him. 

5.  "Went to her room" also drops the pronoun, reducing commitment.  He is unable or unwilling to say that he woke up, and he went to her room.  We cannot say it for him.  We cannot say that he went to her room which will cause readers to believe that Justin DiPietro is revealing that he knew she was not there to be found prior to entering her room.  

6.  "and she's not there" is to speak in the present tense, and not the past tense.  The test for reliability in language is the pronoun "I" connected to an event by a past tense verb.  He violates this by dropping his pronouns, and switching to present tense verb. 

This is a very strong indictor of deception in his speech. 

WCC:  Okay, how old is she?

JD: Twenty months old.

WCC: Twenty months?

JD: Yes ma'am.

He stays very close to what now appears to be a 'script' giving very short answers with little additional information.  


WCC:  All right.  So you saw her last sometime in the evening?

911 operators should avoid leading questions and specifically avoid introducing new language whenever possible.  Training in Analytical Interviewing needed. 

JD: Yeah, yeah, I put her to bed (inaudible)  at 8:00.

The 911 operator gave him reason to agree.  Note the repetition of "yeah" making it important to him. 

WCC:  Alright, hold on just one second while I get somebody started right over there okay, don't hang up the line.

    (brief pause)

WCC: Sir.

JD:  Yes ma'am.

WCC:  Hi, I've got officers on the way over there.  What is your name sir?

JD: ****** ********

WCC: ******* ********?

JD:  Yes ma'am.

WCC: And you said ***** or ***** sir?

JD: ********

WCC:  Alright.  What was she wearing the last time you saw her?

JD: Um, she had some pajamas on, um, they were green pajamas.

Note the extra word "some" to describe the pajamas.  The subject is initially vague and inconclusive in his description of the pajamas, then describes them as "green." Why would the subject's initial description of his missing daughter's clothing, an important piece of information in locating her,  be vague? 

WCC: Green pajamas?

JD: Yeah

WCC: Okay, can you remember the exact time you saw her last or somebody saw her last in her crib?

        (JD referes to Elisha in the background)

Please note that unless an inaudible portion in the transcript contained the word "crib", we have not heard Justin DiPietro use this word.  If so, the 911 operator should have followed the rule of not introducing language and should not have assumed she was in a crib.  

This is an error.  

JD: Um, Elisha, when was the last, when is the last time you went in her room last night when you saw her?

Note that rather than ask the question, he gives additional information which suggests scripting by agreement:  

He could have simply entered the language of the operator and asked "when was the last you saw Ayla, Elisha?

Instead, he has not yet used Ayla's name (outside being asked her name) and he uses the additional, "when you went into her room"; making this needless.  Here is why:

If she was, really, in her room, and Elisha checked on her, there would be no other room to check her in.  Yet, DiPietro feels the need to add the location which should have been presupposed. 

This is indicative of scripting by Justin DiPietro. 

EP: 10:00

JD: 10:00, 10:00

WCC: 10:00 okay.

    (radio communication)

WCC: (inaudible) units responding, she was last seen her crib wearing green PJs approximately 2200 hours  last night.

WCC: What's a good phone number for you sir?

JD: ***-****

WCC: ******, okay.  I've got officers on the way over there right now sir and well help you, okay?

      (disconnect/return call)

WCC: What is the address of your emergency?

911: DPS, putting through

JD:  Yes ma'am I was just on the phone with you and my cell phone died.

WCC: Okay yep, I tried calling you back it went right to voicemail.  What is your daughter's name sir?

JD: Ayla Reynolds

WCC: I'm sorry, Ava Reynolds?

JD: A-Y-L-A

WCC: E-Y-L-A, okay.

Thus far, he has not used his daughter's name except when asked.  This is distancing language and not at all expected from an innocent father. 

WCC: Okay, and you've checked all through the house, is there any way she could have climbed out of her crib?

JD: No ma'am, she, there is no way she could a got, there's no way she could.

Self censoring is when one stops himself from completing a sentence.  What was he going to say here?  "there is no way she could a got..."?  Gotten out of the house?  Out the door?

Note that he attempts to only answer the question by using the 911 operator's words.  This is not expected.

This is minimized responses.  

An innocent parent will, when given an opportunity like this, not only use his child's name, but will jump in and speak of her characteristics, how well she was walking, climbing, opening doors etc. 

The lack of information here is unexpected from an innocent father. 

It should also be considered that the caller self censored here because the child was not in a crib, as this may have been language introduced by the operator.  If the child was not in a crib, it would be difficult for the caller to place her there in his mind and subsequently his language.

WCC: Okay.

WCC: Okay, the officer is there with you right now. I want you to go out and speak with her, okay?

JD: Okay.

WCC: Alright,  Bye-bye.

     END

III.  Analysis Conclusion

Justin DiPietro said as little as possible and entered into the language of the 911 operator whenever he could.  

There is no urgency in his words, no impatience for help. 

He does not ask for help for Ayla, nor even for himself to find Ayla,

He gives no description of her abilities, character, nor even her needs.  This is strongly indicative of distancing himself from the child. 

He does not use Ayla's name, other than to answer the direct question.  This is strongly indicative of distancing language. 

Not once does he express concern for the child.  He does not speak of her being vulnerable, nor in danger.  In fact, not once does he say anything that shows concern for the child. 

We do not find complete social introduction indicative of a good relationship:  "my daughter, Ayla" is a good sign, using her name, title, and the possessive pronoun.  Instead, he says as little as possible. 

We look for a sense of urgency.  A child is in danger...imminent danger, and find none. 

We look for a sense of need, since the child is incapable of self protection, and expressions of such.  We think the parent might mention that she needs her "blankie" or her "binkie" or favorite toy, medicine, or food.  Here, we find not a single mention of anything about Ayla. 

We hear a man previously described as a prideful bully, fighting, getting arrested, assaulting others, speaking with hyper-respect to the 911 operator.  This over politeness is indicative of one who is more concerned to appear to be cooperative, than concerned for his daughter.  We expected impatience and even foul language, yet we found none. 

He began his answer wanting the police to believe he was asleep overnight. This need, itself, told police that he was not asleep, nor was Ayla in her bedroom, nor in a crib, that fateful night. 

He did not ask for help for Ayla. 
He distanced himself from Ayla. 
He did not offer tips to police, nor even suggest what might have happened, or who might have taken her. 

He offered nothing other than direct answers.  

Statement Analysis conclusion:

This was a scripted call and it is deceptive and is designed to deceive police into believing that Ayla was fine that night and in bed, when she was not.  

Statement Analysis indicates that Justin DiPietro has guilty knowledge of the fate of Ayla Reynolds, and his call was scripted and an attempt to deceive police.

perhaps the analysis will answer this question.

CG said...

Peter, this is a great analysis and for me it's one where statement analysis and common sense pair up perfectly. Most of us parents know the urgency we would feel if we had to report our baby missing and we would be bursting at the seams to give every piece of relevant info we could think of. Our minds would be fully of what ifs and we'd be begging the dispatcher to hurry. We now know that of the three adults in the house at that time, at least two were standing by the phone, not looking for Ayla. If Justin really thought someone had taken Ayla, for all he knew, they could have just left with her and going outside and going through the neighborhood he or one of the others might have spotted them.

Do you think it's significant that Justin didn't bother to correct the misspelling of Ayla's name?

stop_playing_dumb said...

I also noticed he changed from the past tense to present tense when he asked his sister "When WAS the last, when IS the last time you went into the room, when you saw her?" This seemed like a mistake he made while on the phone and does seem pre-rehearsed, as you noted.

stop_playing_dumb said...

Yes, he doesn't correct the spelling of his daughter's name. Strange. Also, he changes phones during a 911 call because his cell phone "DIED". Weird.

Terrifying. His comments are absolutely terrifying.

“They're strategically releasing that information because it's going to ratchet up psychological component of people who were in the house that night because someone knows something,” said Loughlin. “No doubt about it."

A parent pridefully puts their child into PJ's that says Mommy's girl or Daddy's princess, etc. You would never forget putting that outfit on.

When he says: No ma'am, she, there is no way she could a got, there's no way she could. -- He won't elaborate because he doesn't want to be questioned further on his response. Just like the rest of his convo.

Jazzie said...

One small step for FOI, one giant leap Justice.

Jazzie said...

I meant to say: "One giant leap for Justice."

CG said...

I just noticed something else. The question about when he last saw her was asked twice because of the phone issue.

The answer he starts to give and the one he ultimately gives are word for word (up until the last word which was cut off the first time due to phone issues) the same. Neither is technically a correct answer to the question.

How long ago did you last see your child asks for an elapse of time like an hour, ten hours...

He answers both times by stating when he last saw her. In the precise same words. This seems scripted.

He could have said the time elapsed, he could have said simply last night, but both times he said "when I put her to..." and in one case got to the word bed.

"His mother, Phoebe DiPietro...'Why not release the 911 tape? Who is that going to hurt?' she said."

http://www.pressherald.com/news/where-is-my-daughter__2012-03-29.html?pageType=mobile&id=1

Good question. It could only help AYLA.

Maggie said...

Oh my word, they finally released the 911 call. I can't believe it. I haven't read the article yet, I am in shock that they have finally released the tape! OK, now to read.

CG said...

Jazzie, I wonder if what Phoebe wanted to know was whether the tape picked up Elisha speaking. She has two kids at risk and knowing how far the evidence reaches in each case seems like an important part of defense.

http://www.wmtw.com/news/ayla-reynolds-911-transcript-released/24267548

News breaking, Video linked.

There is two pdf's labeled, transcripts, 911 call 1 and
911 call 2. Each Pdf has after the the discloser of legality written. A key of who is who via transmission of the calls placed.

The first pdf is of Justin using his cell phone. If you pay attention to the transcription. He was automatically within connected to yes 911, it was not Waterville.

Augusta Maine is stated. Not to be the connection his cell phone reached upon he initially calling 911. His 911 call was received by ESC1 who wasn't in the locality.

As they questioned his address, of his said. His first call was cycled through other agencies. Which leads me to believe his cell phone was not in Waterville, his call placed. And OR his cell phone was tapped. Not as in listened into, yet he tagged within code of his IP his cell, all is tech today, would set off bells, he to call 911.

Why I say this, he was prior to Ayla reported vanished. He noted by MSP, he in Portland, with two other males at Cumby's caught on video. This of him at Cumby's hit the press, after Ayla was reported missing. The walking distance from Courtney's, his once said apt, to Cumby's less than 100 yards. He on tape 12/14 - 12/15 respectively depending upon, what is considered wee hours of, it wasn't said Military time. In press it was not clear exact time he discovered on surveillance. It was within the 24 hour period, no doubt, leading up to his reported, Ayla no longer.

The bust of Brianna Roberts? 36 Pine Street, shortly after Ayla. They the authorities following him, his cohorts. As she is reported to have spilled her guts, she a informant, she given protection. Was she an informant prior to the bust? prior to Ayla? This why Courtney has never been of statements? she too is of immunity?

There is something very odd within the short few mins he dialed 911, within his cell phone. Pdf 1.

His cell was tapped, of monitor, as it didn't ring auto into Waterville. As he dialed in, agencies were automatically connected to his cell, they tapped into his call upon him dialing 911.

Is my take, reading the 1st pdf. There is other agencies, his cell automatically was retrieved, collected, connected, upon him dialing 911. His cell number within code to be of " flag" due to his own doings in Portland. He though had to dial 911 for the ricochet.

Anonymous said...

It was a FOIA request by, I believe, the AP that was granted. If not for that, I don't think LE would have ever released it.

Maggie said...

JD: Um, Elisha, when was the last, when is the last time you went in her room last night when you saw her?

Note that rather than ask the question, he gives additional information which suggests scripting by agreement:

He could have simply entered the language of the operator and asked "when was the last you saw Ayla, Elisha?

Instead, he has not yet used Ayla's name (outside being asked her name) and he uses the additional, "when you went into her room"; making this needless. Here is why:

If she was, really, in her room, and Elisha checked on her, there would be no other room to check her in. Yet, DiPietro feels the need to add the location which should have been presupposed.

This is indicative of scripting by Justin DiPietro.

Peter--Great catch on the scripting! I would not have caught this. One thing I did notice is that he seems to be "feeding" Elisha the words "when you saw her". As in...wink, wink, nudge, nudge, when you saw her (even though she wasn't there).
As you pointed out, it should have been phrased "when was the last time you saw Ayla, Elisha?"
I agree, there are many signs this was scripted out between them. I also notice that Justin's statements to the 911 operator do not match the Angela Harry story. In the 911 version, he is the one that finds Ayla missing--not Elisha! In the Angela Harry version, Elisha finds Ayla missing from her crib and goes down and tells Justin who runs upstairs knocking over the gate. He does not tell the 911 operator that Elisha found Ayla missing.

I am so for FOI. In CT, Stephen Sedensky III, state's attorney for Danbury, wanted to suppress the release of 911 tapes re: Newtown Massacre.

He forgot that his primary service is to the State of CT and not to special interest. FOI won. We are currently grappling with many restrictions.

Maggie said...

JD: She's not even two- twenty months old.

This is odd to me.
One could perceive it as concern--emphasizing how young Ayla is. He had earlier stated she is an "infant".

Was this part of Justin trying to come off as convincing that since Ayla was an "infant" she could be kidnapped?
Technically, AYLA WAS NOT AN INFANT. She was a toddler.
Justin is trying hard to emphasize that she is a "baby/infant" rather than toddler.

Jazzie said...

VITA:

When I recently called in an accident in front of my house, the dispatcher asked me my name, phone number and address. And I was thinking WTF? Don't you have GPS or Caller ID?

VITA, You are so perceptive.
Portland Cumby Video.
Who was on the video with Justin?
Derek?
Lance?
A Roommate?

CG said...

Jazzie, me too. Arizona is good with this stuff. Other states should take a look.

Vita said...

Nov 2013, me to witness within my own city. Officers taking a complainant report within a business. A repeat offender who was no longer wanted in this place of business. This person on the books, records as a habitual offender of LE's known. The officers to speak to the business proprietor, me to witness. I heard the officer and I was confused. As I never knew of such technology.

The officer to state, we have his the(offender), his personal cell phone in code, he is a walking gps via this code we have created, of his personal cell.

We will implement this code within the phone lines of your business to connect to our station. He will be detected instantly upon you dialing 911. You do not have to say a word. Just dial 911, we will know he is inside your business or in your parking lot. Officers will be dispatched to arrest him.
---
Yes all within his cell phone, they said he is monitored, - the connect to be, the store calling 911, no words necessary.

Who's to say of Justin's cell phone wasn't tagged? he was or wasn't being tagged, monitored, within his call made Ayla. Then came the bust of Brianna ? was his cell, tagged before Ayla, before the Bust? He dealing? that he was of known prior to Ayla reported missing.

Brianna walked away clean, no record, no foul. Not a word out of Courtney, their family to date, Ayla. He arrested again in 2013, twice, as if he was being followed by LE.

Lemon said...

Vita, thank you for the link.
Peter, excellent analysis. I thought JP's 911 call would be bad, but I didn't expect it to be this bad. It reminds me of Billie Jean "I was at work" Dunn.

Maggie said...

911: Was there anybody else with you overnight?

The question is specifically to "overnight"

"Overnight" is when he would have been asleep if he woke up this morning. The answer should be in the past tense.

JD: My sister's here, her daughter and my girlfriend and her son are here.

Maybe because someone else WAS there at some point overnight and he is omitting this info. My guess would be Phoebe or Derek.

Maggie said...

Vita--I agree that is extremely strange how many times the call gets disconnected. I even wonder if this may have been why LE withheld the 911 call recording from the public. Something very strange was going on with the information being received and channeled to the right place. This doesn't make LE look good. Maybe you are right that they had his phone tapped?

Vita said...

Jazzie, you would think that being you were outside your house, 911 would be of your area, dialed.

Question landline or cell phone? you dialed out ? as my area is podunk we do not have a 911 system. I am, I guess thankful, in this regard. 911 rings directly into my local police station.

I in 2011, I was home, awake, a man attempting to break into my house. As he was kicking in my window, I dialed 911 hysterical, me not giving my name nor address. As he was interactive vocal with me screaming back at him, as he kicked my window. The officer to hear me screaming. Within 2.5 mins my house was smothered in Blue. He picked up feet from my home, as he was trying to get to his car, parked down my street. They knew is my point, by my not even landline, yet voip, where my location was. They to send multiple squads.

Maggie, the Feds were in on the Bust of 36 Pine, just days after Ayla. The DEA. This goes deep. This isn't a small op, this is of tentacles.

DEA had to within collaboration of MSP come together to gain search warrants. Many months of monitor was within this sting. The addresses noted is 35, 36 and 37, is my recall, may not be exact numbers. One owner, relative of the Roberts. 36 to be of Courtney and Brianna, the two other addresses are One housing Unit split for rental. The Housing split is across the street. This where Justin flopped. There is one Mailing address, which is 36 Pine. As they are all within Maine documented as of one plat. If this makes sense. The properties are grandfathered, documented.

For him to gain Mail other than he to never have his mail forwarded from 29 Violette, his home address would be 36 Pine, Portland. As the two other splits do not have a registered Mailing address. The search warrant for 36 Pine, was sought and signed by a judge, just days after the Dips gained their house back from MSP, FBI.

The Warrant to be of 36 Pine, would include his dwelling, apt, his flop across the street. As they are legally all the same property, documented: 36 Pine. This was a tactical played out RAID, not a welfare check upon the properties. DEA doesn't play. He Justin never to speak of any relationship his living in Portland. His always is he moved back with Phobic, to become a father. No. I do not believe he ever went back to his mothers. He to dump Ayla from time to time. He did not take up residence there, as he has stated. It's all BS.

The Dips are who they are, none of them to come forward, for Ayla. Why? because Ayla wasn't to them a Dip. She from birth was a problem. They to be of silence till this day, it's them, who they are. They sleep very well at night. It's only when they are subjected to public scrutiny do they react.

Tomorrow will be ? Maine News Media, we attempted to contact Peach, he didn't answer. They to let it go,...as they know he is lock stock, unreachable? Ayla who to him.

Ayla may not have ever meant anything to the Dips, she isn't of them. She since reported missing, she is no longer theirs. Justin by reporting her missing, his coward, his family to back him, is his, their "saga" born. Ayla is everyones daughter, granddaughter, due to their lack of outreach to aid in finding her, bites them. Ayla will never be forgotten, She to be located, is her rest, her deserved, as She was here. She existed, she a blessing, nothing less.

JD: "Ah, I woke up this morning, my daughter is not here."
He says she couldn't get out of her crib but then says she is not here instead of she was not in her crib.

JD: She's not even two- twenty months old.
To me, this sounds like what you say when someone has died. She wasn't even two..... I would be curious if he referred to her age in months prior or if he would say she will be two in March (or whenever her birthday was) Did someone script that for him?

JD: Yeah, I, I was just, I'd called, my phone just died and I have another cell phone now, so
I was "just".... Just calling to report my daughter missing?
Way too much info about the cell phones, why the need to explain the hang up? Why didn't the owner of other phone just dial 911 themselves? Did he disconnect on purpose to get the time straight? 8 and 10 seem too perfect of times. 8 may be bedtime but who puts a kid to bed and is in and out exactly at bedtime. And then checked on at exactly 10.

VITA:

When reporting the accident I called from my landline. I use landline if at home, cell if not near home. Landline call can't be dropped like cell. But does dispatch ask (is it protocol) name, phone #, address regardless? Just wondering.

On our 911 system the information pops up automatically for most calls and the dispatcher will confirm. Occasionally for cell phones, it will not pop up.

Jazzie said...

Our 911 calls connect to local town Police. I was surprised the dispatched asked my name, and phone number. The question of address I can understand to locate accident and send emergency response. Does the phone number and name information come up automatically when the dispatcher answers the call? Is it protocol to verify? Just wondering.

In my county all 911 calls go to the county seat then back to the town, just like JD's call did.

In addition to the incomplete response about the crib, JD also didn't confirm that he had actually looked for Ayla. Here or anywhere in the conversation!

Thank you for providing this analysis, and for the others you've posted.

I've recently been started studying statement analysis and taking the LSI Scan course. I work in a law firm as a Human Resources Manager, and still work with a Lawyer I assisted prior to completing my education and taking that position. We receive transcripts of cases very regularly. When I first applied these principles, I often saw deception in both the people we were against, as well as those we were representing.

The most critical thing I've noticed in transcript reviews to date has been the use of articles, as you've mentioned many times. I've seen "we" in rape claims, I've seen "you" instead of "I" (ex: "you're being attacked from behind and you don't know what to do").

In HR contexts, the most common thing I've run into thus far has been the use of qualifying words.

In both contexts, I've been amazed at the results. Will definitely continue reading this blog, I think it has helped both my (still amateur) analysis abilities and my critical thinking skills.

Sus said...

Great analysis, Peter. I wouldn't have noticed the script when he speaks to Elisha.

I'm still wondering about this statement, "No ma'am, she, there is no way she could a got, there's no way she could."

Ayla slept in a bed, not a crib. It would have been easier for her to walk away, yet he doesn't entertain that thought.

JD self-censors twice: "she" she what?
"no way she could a got" got what?

Besides knowing she wasn't in her room in the morning, I wonder if he almost revealed the shape poor Ayla was in when taken from the house. Or if it flickered through his mind.

Lemon said...

JD: No ma'am, she, there is no way she could a got, there's no way she could.

As in, this doesn't fit the narrative of a "kidnapping".

One wonders how this rocket scientist, even with the suburban vista-ed protection of 'Skirts' Tudela, is still roaming the streets with his mini-bat loving kin.

elf said...

He sighed. People in a panicked situation don't sigh. He doesn't want to be calling 911. He doesn't want to answer any questions about ayla. HUGE DIFFERENCE between Justin's 911 call and Ronald Cummings reaction when misty crosslin called 911. Ron Cummings reacted exactly the way alot of people would react if they'd lived that lifestyle. I mean, isn't Justin supposed to be a bad ass? How come he's not ready to hunt down the person who invaded his home and stole daddies princess? How come he's not screaming at Elisha that her door was right by the room.ayla was in? Hailie Cummings dad raged. Aylas father sighed.

mainah said...

Excellent Peter, thank you!

I'm local, it's common here for 911 calls to go to county on evenings and weekends, directly to local PD stations M-F 8am-5pm.

I read guilty knowledge when he sticks to the script saying no way she could get out of her crib. She surely could have unless he knew she was dead or she was tied down.

Glaringly unexpected: polite, non urgent, giving answers rehearsed, limiting information, no mention of taken or kidnapped or break-in, dropped pronouns, missing proper nouns. Need to persuade.

Also, in Maine it is standard practice of LE to not release calls if/when there is an open/active investigation, regardless of relevance or importance. We seem to do things just because "it's how we've always done it." Reminds me of the story about three generations of women who always cut a piece off the baking ham and cooked it separately. New young husband asks why, No one knows, ask great grandmother she says it's the only way she can fit it in her small pan.

Anyway, my point being, better training and communication is needed. There may be better ways but cops in particular don't like being questioned about why they do things the way they do. These dispatchers don't seem too inquisitive or urgent either.

yeh they know where you are. if you dont say anything they will send lots of cops fast because they dont know what the emergency is.
i bet when whomever had him tapped realized he was calling 911, they cut themselves out of his connection and that why his phone "died", the tower lost his signal.
that may also be why LE didnt want to release the 911, it would prove he was illegally tapped by LE.

Great analysis Peter and very interesting to read.

I must admit that I would never have included my daughter's name, initially in a 911- call either. I only refer to my daughter by name with people I know, otherwise I use "my daughter", so since a 911-dispatcher is a stranger I believe I would automatically stick to "my daughter". That to me is nothing out of the ordinary in an initial 911-call.

The second thing I also would have answered the same way as Justin, is to the question if anyone else was there "overnight". That's a very strange question, so I would have assumed the question the dispatcher really meant to ask was if anyone else is there in the house (living there).

People are commenting that it's strange to switch phones because your cell phone died. Isn't that very normal? You grab whatever phone you see first and dial. I don't always have my phone charged 100% at all times.

And the misspelling of his daughter's name. It's two letters that sounds similar: A and E, and you are talking on the phone. It's easy not to hear that. And getting one letter wrong in her name is not going to help them find her faster..

My thoughts ;)

In the state of Maine, all *cell phone* calls go through the Maine State police dispatch center in Augusta. Or at least they did as of a few years ago.

Peter Hyatt said...

Michelle,

regarding using your daughter's name:

most parents in this situation will use their daughter's name BECAUSE she is so highly in the mind, so very personal, and the parent will be constantly giving information about her, particularly her needs (like medicine).

In these multitude of sentences such things as, "Ayla doesn't even have her medicine!" and so on.

DiPietro was not afraid of this being released because he was a minimalist and thought this would help.

It doesn't.

He is deceptive and uncooperative. By uncooperative, I mean that he only answers the questions, and offers nothing.

Nothing.

This is what a guilty caller looks like, no different than the dopey babbling of Sergio Celis.

heartbroken said...

I was at a friends house a few years ago and a 2 year old wandered off in the woods with the dog.(obv we didn't know at the time where she was)....Anywho, after 15 mins or so of ppl searching I called 911. I was frantic and it wasn't my child. The dispatcher had to keep telling me to calm down and talk so she could understand me. I was crying and begging her to hurry and get help there. I see nothing FRANTIC in justin's casual call. WOW!! WTF is wrong with OUR MAINE STATE POLICE?? Seriously

Anonymous said...

"This is an incomplete social introduction" It's incomplete because the situation is NOT social. You aren't introducing someone at a party, it's an emergency. (And yes, I know DiPetro is guilty as sin so I am not defending him.) Look at transcripts of other 911 calls, where we know the caller is not guilty, is the subject introduced there? I've called 911 twice for dire situations I know I didn't 'introduce' who I was calling for and I certainly would not have used their entire given name (Ayla Bell.) Anon J

Lemon: And all of Justin's skirts are proclaiming that the 911 calls show how normal everything is!

To answer your question I think it's simply that not enough of Ayla's blood was found in the DiPietro house to convince a jury that Ayla is still not aliv.

Even if LE, through some miracle, would discover Ayla's body, what, after all this time would the remains tell? Besides, the DiPietro and Tudelas would simply claim a stranger perve killed Ayla.

Even with Hailey Dunn's body, nothing is happening to bring justice to Hailey.

Maggie said...

Vita--I am very open to the idea Justin never moved back home. After all, why would he have given up living away from his Mom to freely drink/do drugs/sell drugs/party "to become a great Dad and give Ayla a better living environment"?! That doesnt pass the straight face test for me! I wonder though, if Ayla did live there with Phoebe and Elisha on Violette Ave? I have always been convinced Phoebe committed some of the violence against Ayla.
Peter astutely identified scripting in the 911 call. I wonder where Justin learned this from. I have always had a hinky feeling about Ayla's broken arm wondering if Phoebe hurt Ayla and didnt just "hear it from the other room" and then feel more concerned for Justin's wrist and encourage delaying Ayla being brought to hospital.
Now that Peter has identified that the 911 call was scripted, I am wondering who wrote the script? Justin, Phoebe, Derek or all 3?

heartbroken said...

All three and that's why his Cell phone died. The more I think about Justin's early statements.....Ayla didn't meet her demise down in the basement. The night Ayla' arm was broken was burned in his memory and his floating comment makes me think she was killed, burned and ashes discarded in the river :(

Anonymous said...

So..Peachy was sure Ayla could not get out of her "crib". Was she tied down because of her broken arm? Did her broken arm prevent her from getting out?

They knew she couldn't/didn't get out...they never looked for her in the neighborhood. Did they even look for her in the house? Justin did not say whether they looked for her in the house. He gave scant info.

Why no mention of her soft cast or sling, Justin? it was in all the reported accpunts of what she was wearing.

Maggie said...

Heartbroken--Right, absolutely.
The incident of how Ayla's arm got broken was "burned" into Justin's brain. I had wondered, in the past, WHO burned the incident into Justin's memory. In other words, I wonder if the truth about how and who broke Ayla's arm was replaced with Phoebe's version (this is not to remove guilt from Justin just to state that I believe Phoebe was involved in the incident) and may have helped create the false description of how Ayla's arm was broken.
It is disturbing that Justin used the word "burn" and it is also extremely disturbing how Phoebe used the phrase "Pandora's Box" in reference to Ayla having gone missing.
Jazzie had brought to the board's attention an old local newspaper article about the Ayla case under which an extremely angry commenter had left comments severely bashing Trista over the course of an entire year underneath the article. That commenter had used the phrase "Pandora's Box" in reference to the case long before Phoebe made her public statement in which she used the phrase "Pandora's Box". This led me to believe that that commenter was either Phoebe or an individual who may have prepared Phoebe's public statement. Aside from these facts, the phrase itself is extremely disturbing in the context of Ayla's disappearance and may hint at how Ayla was disposed of.
I wish Justin had said more in the 911 call. As Peter pointed out, Justin truly is a minimalist with words.

Anonymous said...

JD: Um, Elisha, when was the last, when is the last time you went in her room last night when you saw her?
..............................................................

He didn't want to utter the words "last time you saw her".

I think Elisha knows what happened to Ayla. Maybe Elisha was watching, or supposed to be watching Ayla. Maybe Justin did put her to bed, maybe not, maybe he went out after putting her to bed. When asked who was with him last night, he proceeds in present tense, not to hide who was there, at the house with him, the previous night, but because I think he wasn't actually there himself. JMO though.

Anonymous said...

Just as others have pointed out, Ayla wasn't in a crib. What would absolutely 100% prevent her from getting out of her toddler bed? If you didn't really think someone got out of bed, you'd probably say, I don't think she got up or out of bed, not that there was no way.

Jen Ow said...

Zero urgency! If I were calling 911 because my daughter was missing, and I was 'disconnected' and transferred repeatedly, I would be screaming like a maniac, and geeking out on someone.

Even if it weren't anything THEY were doing wrong, it would be so frustrating for your phone to die, and to be bounced from operator to operator while panicking about what is happening to your, 'infant, not even two..twenty two month old'!

But, JDip displays no urgency, no frustration in being transferred, his phone dying, or having to repeat his story. As I try to imagine this call I wonder how strange it must have sounded. A father reporting a toddler missing, just waits to be asked a question...and answers....dead air. Operator asks another question, he answers...dead air. No over talking from JDip or the others in the house as the frantically search, and scream back in forth. No frustration with the 911 operator. Nope, he's calm, collected and offering no more than he's asked.

I guess some people can't even fake being human.

Eliza said...

All the signs of guilt are there.. Poor Ayla!! I hope justice is served soon!

Rachael said...

How do you decide when the subject is giving too much information, versus too little? Both are highlighted in this analysis. It is simply the expected vs. the unexpected?

This is a chilling call. No urgency, no asking for help for her, and he SIGHED when asked to verify his phone number! That sigh may have angered me more than anything he had to say, it was so telling. Justin has better things to waste his time with than this.

rob said...

elf, you made some good points!

Trigger said...

It sounds like Elisha was the last person to see Ayla alive according to Justin.

Justin put Ayla to bed, then Elisha saw Ayla in bed later, then she's gone in the morning.

Why wasn't Elisha's daughter put in protective custody right away, since Elisha was the last person to see Ayla alive?

Justin and Elisha should both be considered persons of interest or suspects.

Sella35 said...

Words from Jdip-
"It is a fact that her blood was found in my house. Yes, it is a fact that she broke her arm in my house. But, it is not a fact that any of it was intentional.
"My daughter did not come to her demise down in my house. Nothing bad ever happened to my daughter in my house. She never got anything but love from the people in this house," he said.

He said, my daughter did not come to her demise DOWN in my house. I often wonder why he says DOWN? I think he was about to say Down in the basement of my house, yes I am speculating. I am also confused why he used the word DEMISE? That means DEATH. Not kidnapping, but DEATH.

Innocent parents would still hold onto hope, but the word demise means he knows she is dead.
He is a guilty SOB, IMO. I personally think he killed her, DOWN in the basement.

He also adds in....
But, it is not a fact that any of it was intentional.... This confuses me, because I would think he would have said...It is a fact, that none of it was intentional. Instead he says it is not a fact...and he throws in a BUT...ANY.../smh

Sella,

About his claim she did not come to her demise DOWN in his house, maybe he is trying to distance himself from other family members. Phoebe's domain was upstairs; his was downstairs. Is it the equivalent of saying "it didn't happen on my watch"?

Sella35 said...

@CG I do not know. I am still stuck on the intentional issue. I am wondering if he is building a defense. Okay yes she died, yes I hid her, but it was not intentional, it was an accident.(Much like Caylee drowning in the pool)....

Problem with that defense is the blunt force trauma.

Hello, My name is Laura and I live in the Waterville area, I have been tracking this case from day one.

I will be up front with you as you have in your blog. I currently work for a mental health agency and one of my jobs are to transport to the methadone clinic in Waterville.

The morning that Ayla was reported missing by her dad, it was already going through the methadone clinic before Justin had even reported sweet Ayla missing, since that morning I have felt that something was "Not Right".

I feel for the family of this sweet girl, I could not even begin to imagine what they are going through. I pray everyday and check everyday for an end to this. Deep in my heart I don't believe that Justin is guilty and again that is my opinion.

I was getting frustrated reading the post from the other web sites with all the he said she said B.S

I am not sure of the out come of the investigation, but I did hear a one person really complaining that the cops showed up to her resident asking questions, so i know they did look into it.

Hi Laura,
Do you know if you reported that info prior to Dec. 23? According to Waterville Police logs, officers questioned someone at Discovery House at 5:39 a.m. Dec. 23 regarding the Ayla investigation.

The information they gleaned from the interview was followed up on, but it did not lead anywhere.

Link: http://justiceforayla.blogspot.com/2012/02/what-happened-to-ayla-reynolds.html

Laura White did not respond to Ben McCanna's reply. Laura White did not provide the name of the methadone clinic, Waterville. White Pages there is more than one clinic, Waterville area.

Ben McCanna a reporter for Morning Sentinel, would LE, local or State provide him investigative inside information? Since Ayla's case from jump has been very little released by either agency.

It's Laura Whites reported tip, that Ayla was known missing via the locals prior to Justin's 911 call. If true, it would be before 8:49am 12/17 the word was out. Never stated by LE or anyone of the Dips, where Phobic Dip was, night of 16th, am of 17th, before Justin's calls to 911.

This article says when Justine phone died it was because he HUNG UP!
---------------------



Justin DiPietro never told Trista Reynolds their baby Ayla Reynolds was missing. On Dec. 17, some two and a half hours after DiPietro dialed 911 at about 8:50 a.m., Trista finally learned Ayla was gone. The news came not from DiPietro but from Trista's father, Ronald Reynolds, Sr., who had been contacted by the police.

In a series of emails Thursday, Jeff Hanson shared Trista's story of what happened that morning. Trista and her sister Jessica were staying at the Maine Motel but Trista happened to be en route to Machiasport when the South Portland police came calling at 10 a.m. Jessica was in the motel room. She let the police in and agreed to their searching the room for Ayla.

It would be another hour and a half before Trista would hearthe news. In the meantime, the Portland police had visited her father and searched his home with hisconsent. Once Trista got the news, her companion Robert Fortier turned thecar around and they headed for the police department in Waterville, as instructed by the Portland officers
DiPietro Allegedly Hung Up on 911 Dispatcher-- Twice

On the website Answers for Ayla, Hanson shared new details about three 911 calls between the DiPietro residence and Waterville police made the morning of Dec. 17. Police allowed Trista to listen to two of the three 911 calls Jan. 28. Her impression? Justin "was not really sounding sincere… he did not sound concerned…" Trista said it seemed to her Justin was "acting."

Justin allegedly hung up on the 911 operator not once but twice. The first time, the operator instructed him to remain on the line and he hung up, Trista said. When the operator called him back, he hung up a second time.

Police have refused to publicly release the 911 call transcripts.

Morning Phone Calls - Or Lack Thereof- Constitute Critical Evidence

Undoubtedly police and prosecutors will consider Justin's motive for refusing to remain on the line and answer critical police questions if he believed his baby was missing. There were three adults in the DiPietro home that morning, leaving two to search for Ayla had he either remained on the line or handed the phone to his sister or girlfriend.

Justin's failure to contact Trista undercuts recent suggestions online that he believed she was responsible for their daughter's disappearance. If he thought Trista might have Ayla, wouldn't that have been the first call he made?

Trip to Portland and Call to Derek before 911
------------------------------

February 13, 2013
--------------------------

This was posted this morning by Carol Bengle Gilbert

Here is what the article stated. Please use the link above to view the imbedded links.

Missing toddler Ayla Reynolds’ step-grandfather, Jeff Hanson, offered startling new revelations concerning her reported disappearance in an e-mail exchange Tuesday. Acting as family spokesperson, Hanson wants to share with the public some of the information Trista Reynolds, the baby’s mother, learned from conversations with Maine State Police investigators. Among that information, Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, took a 160-mile drive before dialing 911.

Where Did DiPietro Go?

At 8:41 a.m. Dec. 17, 2011, DiPietro dialed 911, reporting Ayla missing from her bed in his mother’s Waterville home. A family friend, Angela Harry, claims to have told Justin’s version of events at a now-removed blog post, preserved on a statement analysis website. The discovery Ayla was gone occurred about 8:30, Harry wrote. In the corrected version of the story, she said DiPietro’s sister, Elisha, told his girlfriend Courtney Roberts, who’d spent the night with DiPietro, that Ayla was missing, and Roberts went downstairs to tell DiPietro.

What Hanson says investigators told Reynolds happened that morning conflicts with the version of events published by Harry. Before making that 911 call, DiPietro allegedly took a trip of approximately 160 miles, to Portland and back.

“He told police he drove to Portland because he thought Trista had taken Ayla,” Hanson said. But not only was Trista living in South Portland rather than Portland, DiPietro did not contact her or any of her family that morning.

Both DiPietro and Roberts rented apartments in Portland, but Hanson did not know if one of those apartments was DiPietro’s destination. He said investigators are considering the possibility the trip’s purpose was disposal of Ayla’s body.

Before calling 911 that morning, DiPietro also called his longtime friend, Derek Tudela, in Winslow, Hanson says investigators told Trista. Tudela had sold DiPietro insurance on Ayla’s life less than eight weeks earlier. Tudela is also the last publicly identified, non-family witness claiming to have seen Ayla at the DiPietro house Dec. 16. Roberts has not said publicly whether or not she saw Ayla when she stayed at the house that night.

Police searching for evidence in the case found two items in the diversion channel near Hathaway Arts Center. Hanson, blogging as “Answers for Ayla,” identified those items on the blog United4Ayla Tuesday as two blankets, about the size for a single bed. One had a pink and brown checkered pattern, and the other was white with blue angels and the words “God Bless.” The latter blanket style is associated with baby gifts.

Trista did not recognize the blankets, Hanson noted. Justin allegedly offered no response when investigators showed him the blankets.

Maine State Police public information officer Stephen McCausland did not respond to an email requesting confirmation of Hanson’s report by press time. Justin DiPietro could not be reached as his telephone number apparently is not listed in a public directory.

Why Now?

Trista Reynolds’ last sit-down with investigators occurred in January when, according to AylaReynolds.com , investigators shared “unequivocal evidence” Ayla died in DiPietro’s house. Hanson explained, “I put off posting the information on Ayla’s site for more than a month because we had our closure. I came to decide that the people who have been fighting for Ayla from the beginning also deserved to know the truth.”Hanson is realistic about potential reaction to his words, after experiencing a year of blogosphere reactions ranging from fully supportive to hostile.

“I realize that people are going to believe what they want,” he said, “and it is not in me to convince them otherwise as we are only interested in the justice of bringing Ayla home now.”

Vita--Regarding the methadone clinic rumor, it is probably true. Maybe Phoebe or Phoebe's companion either attended or knew people who worked at or received methadone from the clinic.
I do not believe Justin killed Ayla. I believe Justin is an abuser (spouse and child abuser) and certainly COULD have killed Ayla accidentally as has been theorized. (I absolutely do believe he abused Ayla and helped dispose of Ayla and certainly may have harmed her--I just believe someone else also contributed to her death).
There are way too many signs of a premeditated attack on Ayla, and these plans do not originate from Justin himself.
They originate from Phoebe and Derek.
Phoebe, in my opinion, has displayed the most severe callousness towards Ayla. This can be found in her shocking rendition of what happened to Ayla's arm where she says how she

1) heard the "fall" from the other room
2) was more concerned about Justin's wrist since he had broken it in dozens of places in a snowboarding accident (REALLY?!)
(Here you can see she has a tendency to lie about medical issues because if had he broken his wrist in 60 plus places, he would not be using his wrist as it would not work).
3) Phoebe is also the one who NOTICED the swelling on Ayla's arm underneath her sleeve while SIMULTANEOUSLY discouraging prompt medical attention to Justin.
Who was Phoebe trying to protect by delaying medical attention? Justin or herself??? Or both?

And then onto Derek: He, according to himself, initiated the sale of the life insurance on Ayla's life. To the best of my knowledge, he has never explained why he asked Justin to buy life insurance on Ayla's life but not for Justin's other child. He initiated this sale promptly after Phoebe and Justin grabbed Ayla from Trista's sister.

Phoebe, in my opinion, is a character more diabolical than Justin himself. This is why it frightens me of what she would have been capable of.
She has also revealed that she is someone who lies about physical injury
1) lied about the extent of Justin's broken wrist from snowboarding (or did he even ever break his wrist?)
2) lied about how Ayla was injured when someone broke her arm
Phoebe is capable of some diabolical lies and had no empathy for her. She claims to have heard and observed Justin having fallen with his full weight on Ayla, but yet after noticing swelling on her wrist discouraged medical attention.
I am also concerned as both of these injuries Phoebe has lied about involve the wrist (Justin's and Ayla's). It makes me feel like Phoebe is a generator of lies.

Sella35 quoted JD:

Words from Jdip-
"It is a fact that her blood was found in my house. Yes, it is a fact that she broke her arm in my house. But, it is not a fact that any of it was intentional."

If this is a complete quote, he identifies two injuries (loss of blood and broken arm) yet, then states "any of it" that makes his statement sound singular. So which was not intentional? The loss of blood or the broken arm? For both of them to be unintentional one would expect his statement to be something like this:

"It is a fact that her blood was found in my house. Yes, it is a fact that she broke her arm in my house, but it is not a fact that either were intentional" or "that any injuries were intentional" or "that any of those was intentional" etc...

I think he did hang up on the 911 calls. He needed to regroup or he was using a traceable phone that he had on him during the evening that he did whatever he did to Ayla. It was likely also his drug-dealer phone. LE needs to find the pings on all of his phones. Or maybe they have.

H said...

In "normal" houses don't people charge their phones overnight? And in "normal" houses if their phone died while they were phoning in an emergency, wouldn't they call back immediately with one of the other phones (2 other adults in the house) immediately? Instead of in 5+ minutes?

Vita said...

My brain is all over the transcripts, I am jumping around.
The transcripts of dialog between the 911 Operators, and JD: C1

ECS1 Okay, how old is she?
C1 She is an infant she’s only twenty months years old.

ECS1 She is how old?
C1 Twenty months old.

ECS1 Twenty months old?
C1 She’s not even two – twenty months old.

ECS1 Was there anybody else with you overnight?
C1 My sister’s here, her daughter and my girlfriend and her son are here.

Tone of question without audio is not detected,

Was there anybody else with you? overnight? "was there anybody else? with you? overnight"

My sister's here, her daughter
and
my girlfriend and her son are here

What isn't said Elisha,Gabby are residents of the house, as it's the house they live in. He does not answer the question of who was overnight. His answer is catalog of persons present, as he adds "and"
My sister's here, her daughter, AND, my girlfriend AND her son. There is no AND between my sister, her daughter.

Question, is it that my girlfriend and her son, were not there overnight. Courtney arrived at a point in time, did not spend the night, she wasn't overnight.

Courtney arrived time not said and Ayden was not with her. Ayden was brought in by a 3rd party as alibi? she had him brought to her?

AND my girlfriend AND her son ARE here /am of 17th. - who was overnight? he did not answer.

Photos of Courtney's car were in presser 12/18, 12/19, her car was moved. Where it was parked first by her (?)one photo of it on the street in front of the house, then it was shown parked behind Dips SUV, in the driveway. Both Vehicles towed by LE.

SUN, 12/18/2011 -wider photo, LE, JD,CR,PD, Ayden is asleep over CR's shoulder, and standing further away is Elisha. Dips SUV, then CR's car, LE car, driveway.

WCC All right. What was she wearing the last time you saw her?

C1 Um, she had some pajamas on, um, they were green pajamas.

WCC Green pajamas?
C1 Yeah.

WCC Okay, can you remember the exact time that you saw her last or somebody saw her last in her crib?

(Transcriber’s note: C1 refers to Alicia in background)

C1 Um, Elisha, when was the last, when is last time you went in her room last night when you saw her?

EP Ten o’clock (10:00)
-----
Where Dip was inside, outside, not known while he was speaking. The added, um's, is his brain cranking, he pausing, thinking. *my question it being days before Christmas, did he pull the color green from viewing a green object.

The Op's question is compound, what was/is she wearing, what was she wearing when you saw her last,

JD: UM, she had some pajamas on
UM, they were green pajamas

Ayla wasn't clothed
She wasn't wearing pj's while she was vanished, and he knows it. She had Pj's on, they were removed.

She has on green pajamas, or was wearing green pj's is not what he responds,

UM, she had, past tense,'some'on, they were pajama's -

Green color is adjective, as in attribute, color or no color, color is irrelevant, Pj's are Pj's, as Shoes are Shoes, his said is she HAD some on, they were pj's

- the Daddies Princess embellished, bright green jammies so said were gifted to Ayla by her Aunt. They were vanished with Ayla? separate of her? or he rid them away as soon as he obtained Ayla in Oct 2011. Ayla never wore them. Her soft cast is not said within the transcripts. What is a constant is the number 20. He says 20 four times in pdf transcripts, he repeats, 10 o'clock twice, which = 20. 20:20 Military time is 8:20 PM

WCC All right. So you saw her last sometime in the evening?
C1 Yeah, yeah, I put her to bed (Inaudible) at eight o’clock (8:00)

Omit green (as I believe Green was added in, not truth by Peach)

UM, she had some pajama's on, um they were pajama's

How do Pajama's change? that they are no longer pajama's, you remove them

How many times did the 911 call disconnect? When reading the transcripts it looks like twice to me, is that right?

Anonymous said...

Wait, maybe the call disconnected once, not twice? I'm not sure why I'm fixated on the number of times it disconnected. One phone battery going dead I could see but twice not so much. There was also a disconnect in the AK 911 call. It seems odd in my opinion.

Randie said...

I understand he hung up twice. That would mean he had called three different times. Kudos to whom ever it was that caught the 5 min. lapse!!!!!

"On the website Answers for Ayla, Hanson shared new details about three 911 calls between the DiPietro residence and Waterville police made the morning of Dec. 17."

Three 911 calls!

Vita said...

The week of Dec 11-17 2011
After Ayla was reported missing Feb 17, 2012 press,

A source told The Sun that Maine State Police contacted the overnight store clerk at the Cumberland Farms, located on Pine Street in Portland's West End, saying that a credit card under the name of Justin DiPietro was used to purchase cigarettes at the store around 2 a.m. on Dec. 15, 2011.

Police were told that DiPietro was at the store with two other men, only one of which police were able to identify. The clerk was told the third man was a person of interest to the investigation.
----------
2 am Dec 15th, is a Thursday.
49 Pine Street, Cumby's address, 194 feet from 36 Pine Street, walked. Waterville: 36 Pine street, 74-83 miles, one way, route depending, to Phobic's house, 29 Violette Ave. 1 hour 20 mins one way.

Weds Night ? he was out with his buds, he/they in Portland. Weds night the 14th, the clock rolled over, bar time, 2am to be Thursday, they strolled into Cumby's for smokes. Where was Ayla?

Thursday Dec 15th, 2011, TR went to court, filing out papers, custody Ayla. Documented.
--
Text messages posted of TR and JD. He in Portland night of the 14th Wed, to roll into the 15th Thurs, he sited on surveillance. Friday the 16th, Derek named non family member, to witness Ayla. Friday the 16th, Phobic went from her work out? not home first? not said.

Waterville, Friday evening 16th, JD,ED,CR 3 minor children, Ayla in bed, 8pm, 12 hours later she poofed. Cat was away, the mice to play. He is leading up to Friday? his Text to TR.

Text captured JD to TR:
Justin: She was at my house and i
went there after she went to bed to get my bed you idiot people saw her friday so good try

She was at my house/and/
I went there/after she went to bed
to get my bed/you idiot
people saw her *Friday*/so good try
-------
Week of Dec 11-17th 2011.
Ayla was seeing a bone specialist in Portland. JD requested the Portland area for Ayla's follow up care.

Scheduled on Monday Dec 12th, Ayla had an appointment. JD did not cancel, he was a no show, where was Ayla staying? in Portland? Path to least resistance, keep Ayla in Portland.

His tyrannical text to TR,
She was at my house and i
went there after she went to bed to get my bed

We know where ever Peach lays his head he claims ownership. His bed in Portland. Why would he go get his Bed from Waterville?

She was at my (mothers/his flop/CR's) and I went there after she went to bed, to get my bed.
He claimed Ayla from CR? she in his SUV, she asleep.

He went to Portland? or he WAS in Portland. CR's house is across the street from his Flop Apt he lived in. CR to be babysitting a broken Ayla, 12th,13th, both nights?

To get his bed, Ayla he claimed from CR's apt, she asleep in his SUV? he while she was asleep, he to go across the street, on the night of the 12th, 13th, or not so, it was the 15th, he to enter his flop apt. To pick up his personals.

This would be he did not leave Portland, he remained there. He to head to Waterville, the Night of the 15th, or am hours of 16th. When did he sleep?

Rumor Mill is he was partying Portland Style, the night of 11th, and he wasn't fit to take Ayla to her Doc appt, 12/12. He hurt her? he hung over? he snapped? shook her? the vomit found, to be key to shaken baby, head trauma.

He rid her 12/12 pawned her off to CR? or not her, She to refuse his demands? He to have access to CR's Apt across the street. Ayla was dumped onto CR or he dumped her period elsewhere, to buy time.

He attempting to prevent Ayla being seen? Pine St, a daytime corner hangout for hooligan druggies? his place empty during the day? as Pine St, surrounding area was sited for foot traffic, in and out, neighbors complaining. The area monitored by LE. His roomies not to come forward, of who he shared his flop with.

Vita said...

Ayla with a soft cast on her arm. She was not appeared 12/12/11 to her Doc's appointment, bone specialist, by her father.

Post the 11th, who was witness to a happy, plucky, Ayla?

I am disregarding the Tudela 12/16 witness account.

The month of October (2011) to be said when Trista was admitted to Rehab, was kick the booze or lose the kids, right?

Searching her said last siting of Ayla, came across compiled interviews of Trista, her sister. These all in one, all pressers. I cached with Crtl F, to highlight, pick out, "November"

November 2011, is my recall of Trista's last to see Ayla, physically see her. November comes up, 7 times repeated, within the interviews/pressers. November is repeated to be when Justin obtained Ayla, isn't this wrong? It was October, not November. Trista does not correct the reporter. Her sister claims November Justin gained Ayla. Head Scratch.

Whitney Raynor, her mother’s stepsister, said Monday that welfare agents had placed Ayla with her father in November while the mother was in rehab for substance abuse

Reporter: At around 8 oclock on Friday night, Justin Dipietro, Ayla's father, says he put the toddler to bed.

When he went to check on her Saturday morning, he says she was gone.

He's had custody of Ayla since child welfare agents placed her with him in November, while Reynolds was in rehab for substance abuse. During that time, Ayla's mom said she became concerned when she saw bruises, and confronted him.

TR: He said well, you know, her and my niece like to go down on the stairs. Like, it could be from that. I just..I didn't believe it.

Q: Other reports suggest that CPS gave Justin temporary custody of Ayla. I don't think you agree with that. But, after you got out of rehab, a month went by where you never saw Ayla, why?

TR: No, I had went like two and a half weeks without seeing her when I first got out of rehab, and then after, um, like the first week of November, I didn't see her again until the 21st of November. And then after the 21st of November I did not see her again.

At times when I read quotes of TR, I become questionable of her memory. Does she remember exacts, or she doesn't know, she to ad lib? she to fill in blanks, at random.

Hi Vita. I think she might not have remembered specific dates. At the time of seeing Ayla, she probably didn't note the date to herself, so she'd have to really think about the day and actual date.

Maggie said...

Vita--Most of the pictures of Ayla were in JDips house during this time period. I bet you are 100% right Justin did not live there or at least moved away mid-stay.
That is great info about Justin rescheduling to Portland area for Ayla's follow up. I did not know this!
It does beg the question where was Ayla that night--was Courtney babysitting in Portland? Could she have even been babysitting at Violette Ave bc Elisha did not wish to? And maybe Justin said "I'll be right back but instead went out "partying " in Portland?
Phorbe's absence HAD to have played some role--was Ayla more vulnerable because she was gone or did Phoebe take her out of the house? Or, like you're asking I think, did she "disappear" in Portland?
That is totally new info to me that ge rescheduled follow-up care to Portland. Vita--do you think this means Justin actually did plan on taking her to the follow-up? Otherwise, he would have made the appointment with the original doc?

Maggie said...

Vita-/Now I am thinking why did he say he went there to get his bed? Fight with Phoebe? Did he grab Ayla and take off with her to Portland? Left Ayla there and went back to get her and then harmed her?
And we need to factor in timing of Trista filing for parental rights.

Anonymous said...

He is way too calm sounding and doesnt sound concerned for her. how long from the time they found her missing until he called 911? and he couldnt look at his battery bar and make sure he had enough battery for that 911 call? i would have been screaming that i couldnt find my baby and for them to hurry to my house. i wouldnt have waited for questions to be asked. i would have called and hysterically said i just woke up and my baby was gone and i cant find her anywhere. i put her to bed at 8 and my sister checked on her at 10 and we cant find her anywhere. i would have said she has a broken arm. i would have been hysterical freaking out. this is every parents worst nightmare. i've seen people more urgent over a lost dog.

Maggie said...

Anon @ 4:30--Good point about why didn't Justin check the battery bar. I feel like if it was HIS phone he would be much more likely to be aware of how much battery life left on his phone, but if it was someone else's phone, the likelihood would drop. How strange that his phone would run out of battery life seconds after he called 911 to report Ayla missing? Could someone else present have handed them their phone knowing the battery was about to die? Or he just calling on his own nearly battery dead phone to avoid telling what happened? It was prob his phone and he was obviously talking on it all night, although you would think police would know who he was talking to at this point? He did call Derek.
Oh Phoebe, when will you tell us where you were that night?

Jazzie said...

Did the 29 Violette Ave. home have a landline back in Dec. 2011?
Cell phone(s) were used to place 911 call.
A landline is unlikely to be "dropped" and would help expedite emergency response.

"When cellphones first started appearing in the 1990s, the Maine State Police, instead of local police and county sheriff’s departments, agreed to take 911 cellphone calls. Land-line emergency calls still would be taken by local police and county sheriff’s departments."

Maggie said...

Jazzie--good question! And if there was a landline, you would definitely think (particularly when during the first attempt Justin's battery died) that he would have made the 2nd call from the landline.

Anon who wrote this, have yo considered the other option he had for "daycare" in Portland? His son's mother, Amanda G?... I am guessing that neither Courtney, nor Trista, or even perhaps Phoebe or Derek knew about his son's mom, let alone that he even had a second child...I recall someone telling me that she had admitted to watching her several times before she went missing, but that was never confirmed by her publicly as far as I know...If this is true, this may be why Derek Tudela never offered a second LIP on the second child...He may not have known about him, or if he did, he hid it from JD's family by not offering an LIP to that child, unless his motive was to not offer a second LIP so as to target Ayla for financial gain...he either did nor did not know about Justin's second child, and that fact will be of PARAMOUNT importance...

Peter, Why do you think the cops didn't publish this until now?

"Maine State law does not allow 911 audio recordings to be released"

http://www.wmtw.com/news/ayla-reynolds-911-transcript-released/24267548

But the release of transcripts could establish timeline in the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds. And the subsequent comparison against individual statements.

The withholding of audio 911 could be that it is still an integral piece to investigation.

Its about damn time said...

The 'coward', Justin threw his sister under the bus, ran over her and left her holding the bag. I wonder, do Elisha realizes that saying she checked on Ayla last is a guarantee, she too will likely be facing charges.I predict in the very near future (within 6 months)the 3 in the house that night, along with the wicked witch will be indicted!

Great analysis.


I would like to add (though not related to statement analysis) that it was unethical
for an insurance company to allow a low income person with a violent past to take
out life insurance on a toddler.


What were they thinking?

Truth lover said...

Very observant!

I think Phoebe hates Trista. It was Phoebe who initiated getting the baby off of Trista.

It was probably Phoebe commenting to sling mud and distract attention away from her guilty family.

Do you have a link to that article with the Pandora's box comment?
