For the same reason that Tristin didn’t become a series regular. Tristin was originally cast as one of the two potential girlfriends of Aiden. When he was brought back for the first casting report, he had a scene with Aiden in which he played Aiden’s ex-girlfriend, who was angry at Aiden for sleeping with her best friend. The producers liked Tristin but decided that he wasn’t right for this role. It was a mistake.

The former soap opera star was arrested on suspicion of felony murder and child endangerment after she allegedly left her five-year-old daughter with a babysitter while she drove back from a grocery store in Tyler.
Although this may be true, this information came from a fake news website, The Smoking Gun. Lori Meyer was never convicted of any crime. This may have been because, according to an ABC News report in 2001, the mother was not guilty of leaving her daughter with a babysitter.
Lori Meyer’s estranged husband, David, filed for divorce on July 12, 2000, but the judge delayed it until January 7, 2001, to allow time for “the investigation and resolution of all charges relating to the disappearance of their child.” In August 2000, David had filed a complaint alleging neglect. In response, Lori Meyer was ordered to submit to a psychological evaluation.
LORI’S MOTHER’S CARE CALLED INTO QUESTION LORI MEYER’S FATHER, JACK,
FILED FOR DIVORCE in October 2000, claiming that his wife had failed to properly care for him when he was ill. According to ABC News, Jack Meyer wrote in a sworn statement that Lori had left her husband alone for long periods of time while she was out at work.
He said she also neglected to change his bedsheets and gave him no assistance when he needed to use the bathroom. In addition, Jack Meyer claimed his wife told him she had hired an attorney. However, Jack said he was unable to reach his daughter because she was working and couldn’t be reached on the phone.
To summarize, Lori Meyer’s mother had called the police in October 2000. LORI’S HUSBAND DENIES CLAIMS Jack’s divorce was finalized on February 13, 2001, the day after Lori’s daughter was reported missing. Jack’s former spouse, Lori Meyer’s mother, Mary Jane, said she didn’t believe that Lori’s absence was an act of neglect because she “always took good care of her family.”
Jack and Lori had been married for 19 years and had five children together. Lori Meyer’s father had also filed for divorce in 2000, claiming his daughter had failed to care for him while he was recovering from surgery. The two men reconciled and divorced before their daughter was reported missing.
Lori Meyer was both accused of being rapists Lori Meyer’s mother, Mary Jane, also denied the sexual abuse claims against her DAUGHTER In the wake of the disappearance of her daughter, Lori Meyer’s mother, Mary Jane, accused her ex-husband, Jack, of sexually abusing his daughter.
She said she had been sexually assaulted by Jack when he was on an alcohol and drug binge. But Jack denied this claim. The following month, he filed a complaint against his wife, saying that she had left him and their children for three weeks to get away from him. A judge ordered a psychological evaluation to determine whether Lori was capable of caring for her children.
Take the case of Lori Meyer’s ex-husband, David. After the couple’s divorce was final in February 2001, David filed a custody complaint alleging that his ex-wife had a history of mental illness, was violent toward him and had endangered their children. David said Lori had tried to strangle him on one occasion and had held a knife to their infant son’s throat.
The judge granted David primary custody of the couple’s five children. However, the order provided that Lori could have visitation rights with the children. As you know by now, all of this occurred before Lori’s daughter was reported missing.
Lori Meyer’s babysitter was charged with child endangerment Lori’s babysitter was also arrested and charged with felony child endangerment. She was released after posting bond. During the investigation, it was discovered that Lori’s daughter had a high fever and had not been taken to the doctor.
It was also alleged that the daughter had been left home alone on several occasions before the disappearance of Lori. When interviewed by police, Lori’s daughter said she had not seen her mother for three weeks and did not know where she was. She said her mother sometimes went out with “bad people” and did not always tell her where she was going. Daughter recognized as missing child’s daughter Lori’s daughter was identified as the missing girl.
LORI MEYER IS A SUSPECT! On February 13, 2001, the day after Lori’s daughter was reported missing, Jack Meyer filed for divorce from his wife, alleging that she had abandoned the family for three weeks to get away from him. In May 2001, Jack filed a motion to modify his visitation schedule, citing a change in circumstances.
According to court documents, he had been working late hours and traveling out-of-state for business reasons. This interfered with his ability to care for his children and provide them with stable home life. On May 10, 2001, the day after her divorce was finalized, Lori Meyer married Michael Finney, a convicted child molester who was serving time at Atascadero State Prison.
