The search for missing baby Lisa Irwin continues, but new information that has been released that revealed exactly what prompted the judge to sign another search warrant for the home. In what amounted to nearly a full day of work, investigative teams including the FBI and local law enforcement gathered bags of evidence and removed a large carpet from the famiily's home. Crews, wearing white, hazmat suits could also be seen raking and shoveling in the front yard of the home where little Lisa was last seen. Brown paper sacks were carted from the home, but investigators did not reveal what was inside of those bags. It has now been learned that they have removed several articles of clothing, a toy, some rolls of tape and one tape dispenser in addition to that carpet.
Joe Tacopina, the high powered attorney from New York that had been hired to represent the family questioned why this additional search had been deemed necessary as well as asking why the family had been barred from being in the home when it was conducted. The official word, gathered from an affidavit signed on Tuesday is a positive hit by a cadaver dog in the area of Deborah Bradley's bedroom, right near her bed. Cadaver dogs are specifically trained to smell the scent of decayed or decaying bodies whether they are in the area or not.
New information is also being discovered that may reveal more conflicts from the original statement given by Bradley when she was interviewed by police. On the night of Lisa's disappearance, Bradley claimed to have put the baby to bed around 10:30 pm and then going to sleep herself. She later changed that story and the time, saying that she last seen the baby just before 7:00 pm. Bradley tearfully admitted to being drunk that night, drinking enough wine to become drunk but denies that she could have injured her child.
Now, people that are in close contact with the family have told police that Deborah admits that she did not want to search behind her home that night for fear of what might be found there.
Tacopina is calling the police department's move to release the information from the affidavit "unfortunate". The concern is that it will slow the search for Lisa or may end it altogether. In a harshly worded press release, dated October 21, Tacopina and his law offices take great exception with the Kansas City Police Department as well as the FBI and their handling of the case and the parents themselves. Tacopina's statement finished by accusing law enforcement of effectively "starving" grieving parent of any information that they have gathered to date and keeping them in the dark on purpose.
