Ayla Reynolds Father 'Justin DiPietro' takes polygraph test but says results are 'irrelevant'

The father of a missing toddler says he took a polygraph test shortly after she disappeared from his Maine home but neither he nor police will reveal the results.

Justin DiPietro reported 1-year-old Ayla Reynolds missing from his home in Waterville before Christmas but tells the Portland Press Herald he doesn't know how he did on the test.

'I asked for a polygraph on day one,' Mr DiPietro told the Morning Sentinel.

'I’ve taken one, and the results, I was never allowed to see them. It’s something you’re going to have to ask law enforcement about,' he said.

Police say they told him the results.

'He knows how he did, because we told him,' Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland told the Herald. 'To say that he didn’t know, is just not true.'

Mr McCausland said Friday he couldn't disclose the results to the press but that they cannot be used in court cases as evidence, serving only for investigative purposes.

Mr DiPietro says whether he was told he failed the test by police is 'irrelevant' as he has not physically seen the results himself. Read More
