According to the petition update, there will be a press conference today.
Update 3:48 PM 10/3/17 From Jeff –
It was decided today that a press conference will be held once William Childs Esq. has his full team in place and the target date will be a Tuesday in October.
From WCSH –
Lawyers for Trista Reynolds have been asked whether they will file a wrongful death suit.
They said they’ll reveal their decision in the near future.
From Press Herald –
The declaration of death order was entered by Mazziotti on Wednesday, according to a digital docket entry. It says that Ayla “died on or about December 17, 2011,” a determination Mazziotti made based on testimony by Trista Reynolds; Lt. Jeff Love, of the Maine State Police; and evidence introduced at the hearing. Love, who oversees the state police unsolved homicides squad that is investigating Ayla’s case, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
Trista Reynolds did not return a call Wednesday seeking comment, and her stepfather, Jeff Hanson, referred questions to Childs.
Childs, who said he is handling the case pro bono, said by phone Wednesday he was traveling in the western U.S. and would be back in Maine this weekend.
“I’m going to get together with Jeff and Trista, make a plan and do a press conference sometime next week,” Childs said.
He said he had received about 20 calls in the previous hour about the case and he wanted to discuss everything in one setting. “I want to do it all at once,” he said.
I’ll try to post updates here as they come in. Please post any articles with links in a comment.
