The aunt of Ayla Reynolds, Elisha DiPietro, made recent claims that she had taken a polygraph test. However, she wouldn't answer 'yes' or 'no' to the question if she had passed the test. Now it's being reported that police will not confirm whether or not these claims made by Elisha DiPietro are even true. It's interesting that this is being reported, and even more interesting that there are no actual answers from police regarding this.
So could it be possible that Elisha DiPietro isn't presenting the utmost honesty? Or are police in Maine stirring the pot by refusing to confirm her claims? It's been public knowledge for quite some time now that police suspect dishonesty on the behalf of she, her brother and his girlfriend. Ayla Reynolds is still missing, so if the DiPietros are truly being dishonest, it's only a matter of time before their lies come back to haunt them.
As for the investigation regarding the missing tot, detectives are still awaiting results of crime lab analyses of items found in a recent search. The mainstream media has not reported on or speculated on the "items of interest" that were located, but it's been acknowledged by police that the items may be connected to the missing Maine toddler. Grapevine sources through various forums claim that the items found "belonged to a child."
A media reporter by the name of Rob Pointdexter claimed on his Twitter that the items found were possibly a pink baby's blanket and small backpack, but he also states that police in Maine would not confirm.
If these items do in fact belong to Ayla Bell Reynolds, do the DiPietros have something to worry about? The location of these items was just a couple of minutes from the home inhabited by Elisha, Justin and Phoebe DiPietro, so the proximity is suspicious enough.
