Two maternal relatives of missing toddler Ayla Reynolds have taken polygraph exams. Previously, Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, took a polygraph exam January 18; however, was not able to complete it due to a medical condition. Also, Ayla’s father, Justin DiPietro, took a polygraph test as well DiPietro says police did not provide him with the results. The police say that is not the case and they did.
Ayla’s uncle passed the exam, while Ayla’s grandmother was unable to complete it, according to aylareynolds.com.
In an interview with the Morning Sentinel, Becca Hanson, Ayla’s grandmother, declined to discuss the exam’s specific questions, but said she told the polygraph examiner she had nothing to do with 21-month-old toddler’s disappearance.
The exam was administered Friday by Maine State Police at Cumberland County Jail in Portland, she said, but the polygraph administrator couldn’t conclude the exam because Hanson’s daily medications interfered with the results. Hanson takes “muscle relaxers, pain-killers, depression medication and an antibiotic,” she said.
