Investigators in the case of a missing Maine toddler, Ayla Reynolds, may have a new lead implicating Ayla’s fathers in some sort of foul play. Leaked reports state that Ayla’s blood was found in her father’s home. Ayla was last seen on December 16, 2011, where she was staying with her father, Justin DiPeitro. The tot was reportedly wearing a soft cast because of a broken arm.
Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, was in drug rehab when the girl went missing. She and her family have been outspoken about their suspicions of DiPeitro in the toddler’s disappearance, however, DiPeitro has been just as outspoken about his insistence that he had nothing to do with it.
On January 20th, Ayla’s mother walked out on a polygraph in mid-session. She claims on the family’s website ‘Bring Ayla Home‘ that her prescription medication prevented her from giving an accurate account of events. According to MSNBC, DiPietro completed a polygraph but the results have not been made public.
The family’s website also quotes the police, in regards to the amount of blood found in DiPietro’s home to be “more blood than a small cut would produce”.
Police say that three adults were home at the time Ayla went missing, including her father and her paternal Grandmother. Police have been united with the Reynolds family in their suspicions of DiPetro’s accounts of that night as well. They believe the adults present during the disappearance have not told Police the whole story.
