After several days of researching, I have come to the conclusion that unless there is some unknown connection, the resemblance between Tripp and the baby born on April 18, 2008 to Amber and Levi is simply a coincidence.
I don’t think this exercise has been entirely futile, though. I now have questions about Tripp that I never had before. Those little niggling doubts about Bristol’s late 2008 pregnancy have grown stronger. Something just doesn’t add up. I am going to be working that angle now. If anyone runs across information that may be useful in proving that there was something amiss with the Tripp pregnancy or that Tripp is older than his stated age, please comment or email me.
