Missing Ayla Reynolds' Mom Had No Choice But to Share Horrifying Details of Daughter's Case

Heartbreaking 49

Ayla ReynoldsFor a month now, the mother of missing Maine toddler Ayla Reynolds has been threatening to release disturbing details from the scene of her daughter's disappearance. Now the time has come. This week Trista Reynolds shared never-before-heard details about her ex-boyfriend Justin DiPietro's home and what police found when they were first searching for her missing baby girl. And from the sounds of it, there should be a series of arrests being made ... immediately.

Because 21 months ago, cops found a little girl's blood. Everywhere.

Literally. Everywhere.

According to the information Trista said she got straight from the cops back in January, Ayla's blood was found on a fan cord in her father's (DiPietro) basement. A "fist size" stain of her blood was allegedly found on Justin's mattress. There was allegedly blood in her carseat, on a doll, on the sofa, in Justin's sneakers, on a plastic tote in the basement, on a sheet, on the floor and walls, on a wood pallet in the basement, even on her pink princess slippers.

Is it any wonder Trista Reynolds is demanding her ex-boyfriend's head on a platter? Along with the folks who were there the last night her daughter was scene, way back in December 2011?

Something horrible happened. And someone knows about it.

That much blood, folks, isn't likely to have come from some little cut. Even head wounds -- which every parent knows bleed in often scary amounts -- aren't likely to spread that much blood to that many places.

So why hasn't anyone been arrested?

Why is this case still sitting out there?

In case you doubt the veracity of Trista Reynolds' claims, the cops aren't denying the details of Ayla's case. They aren't confirming it, but a spokesman also said specifically that they aren't "refuting" this horrifying evidence.

I feel for the cops; I really do. You can't take a case to court until it's rock solid. You don't want to risk losing a chance to prosecute because you don't make your case.

But 21 months have gone by, this woman hasn't seen her child, and she's got to live with these horrors they've shared with her every day ... while she doesn't see any action. Releasing this information may make it harder on the cops, but they aren't giving her much choice in the matter. She wants justice for her child!

Right now she's becoming the squeaky wheel hoping to get some grease, and they need to do something. Make an arrest, if they can. And if they can't, then explain to her WHY NOT. Give her something!

Because she's not going away, and from the sounds of it, I can't blame her.

What do you think of Trista's decision to release this information? Are the cops being fair to her?

Like the writer said the cops are in a tough spot. The jury is supposed to convict only if the evidence proves beyond reasonable doubt. Blood with no body leaves a lot of questions. If they go to trial and he is found guilty, and new evidence comes out he can't be retried.

This is so sad! What could he possibly have done to that baby that would cause her to bleed so much? I haven't really been following this case closely because it breaks my heart. Has police talk to the other people who were that the last night she was seen? I really hope this mother gets answer about what happened to her daughter.

They have to have a rock solid case before they arrest him and take him to trial... Justice is not a speedy thing, but it's the best thing.

If a child goes missing in your care with circumstances like this, why are there no charges for oh, I dont know, endagering a child, negligence, abuse, SOMETHING along those lines? Same thing with Casey Anthony. There was "supposedly" not enough evidence to convict her of murder, but HELLO, Child abuse? And why when it was found she wasn't working, and had no nanny, nobody ever investigated to see where her daughter was all those times Casey claimed she was with the nanny?

Obviously she wasn't with the mother! My personal belief is that Casey was selling her daughter to child molestors and people who made child porn, and would drop her little girl off with them then go and claim she was with the nanny. Then one of the movies went "wrong" and the little girl was accidently smothered, or Casey was trying to subdue her (hence the search for Chloroform) or the little girl threatened to tell her grandparents, and she was killed. Then Casey dumped the body, In THIS case, with so much blood found, the guy could at MINIMUM be charged with not providing medical care when it is so clear the little girl suffered a horrific injury, or worse.

I say it's enough evidence for an arrest thats a lot of blood too me it seems as tho there is a cover up they need to arrest this man NOW I would have released this info as well and a long time ago they need to do their jobs plain simple

Continued: The police are CLEARLY being pushed somehow to NOT charge this man, or they are simply NOT doing their jobs. I have seen MANY cases where the police don't do their jobs, so I suspect that is the problem. Children go missing, and are murdered and abused all the time, and in cases where it could have been prevented, the cops and CPS didn't, and in cases where it COULDN'T be prevented, many times there is no real justice anyway. The country needs to wake up and take crimes against children more serious. A JOINT will get you in more trouble then killing your KID a lot of the time.

My family had 4 members brutally murdered and our case has stalled due to a technicality. I feel this poor woman's pain all- be-it not on the same level though.  I pray for some peace and resolution in her case. I couldn't imagine the loss of a child

Janice Halsey

No the cops are not being fair, that amount of blood tells it's own story what wrong with DA , state police somebody should be doing something arrest everybody who was there, maybe somebody would talk,
