Missing baby Lisa Irwin was believed to have been discovered recently when the remains of an 11-month-old girl were discovered in the state of Virginia. It's hard to tell whether it's a good or a bad thing that the recent update has shown that this body is not the missing child. It's a rather bitter feeling, actually, knowing that not only is Lisa still missing but another young little girl is dead under unknown circumstances.
So where is this missing Kansas City infant? Lisa Irwin has been missing since October of 2011 and it's quite clear where suspicion lies in this case. In fact, the mother herself has even publicly acknowledged that she anticipates being arrested in connection with her daughter's disappearance. She publicly acknowledged that she failed a polygraph test as well. While her lawyer says she passed and that the police lied to her as an interrogation technique, the KCPD have not confirmed these claims. It wouldn't be the first time the lawyers representing Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have said something false to the media, in fact.
So where is she? Who took her, if anybody even did? Why are there so many inconsistencies and story changes in this missing child's case? Another question to ask: Whose body was found in Virginia? Has there been another 11-month-old child reported missing that isn't making media headlines, or is this the case of another murdered child gone unreported?
At least Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin had the good senses to report Lisa Irwin missing, whether they're responsible or connected in any way. Nonetheless, it's strange if you observe the mother's behavior. She acts off, and shifty, and speaks of her daughter in the past tense which completely contradicts her claims that she believes she is alive. At least that's what happened when they appeared on Dr. Phil. She also seemed more inclined to talk about her hurt feelings than the urgency in finding her missing child. Her behavior didn't feel entirely sincere. Remember, she had made the statement from the very beginning that she wouldn't look in her backyard because she was "afraid of what she may find." -- and that was from day one of the case!
