Detectives and FBI agents showed up on Sunday at the Kansas City, Mo., home of the missing girl's parents Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley to restage what may have happened on the night of October 3 when baby Lisa went missing.
Pretending to be intruders, investigators climbed through a window in order to gain access to Irwin and Bradley's home. The "break-in" was no easy task, as the detectives climbing through the window needed to be boosted in, and afterwards the window slammed down on the detective's legs.
The staged break-in was undergone by investigators to test the story told by Lisa's parents -- that a kidnapper entered their home and snatched Lisa away while Jeremy Irwin was out working an overnight shift and Bradley was sleeping. Police believe that the re-enactment may help validate or discredit the parents' story.
A police re-enactment in the Baby Lisa case today raised scepticism about her parents’ claims that the child was plucked from her crib by an unknown abductor in the middle of the night.
The operation proved difficult for two officers acting as a potential kidnapper, as each had difficulty getting into the Kansas City, Missouri house and needed help from other investigators.
One officer got his legs caught in the window after it suddenly slammed closed while he was climbing in.
The Clay County Prosecutor's Office has served a grand jury subpoena on KCTV5 as part of the investigation into the disappearance of baby Lisa Irwin.
KCTV received the subpoena late Monday afternoon. Prosecutors asked KCTV5 for "all footage, including raw footage of any interviews or statements given by neighbors, family or friends of the family, regarding missing baby Lisa Irwin."
KCTV5 was ordered to bring the footage to the "Grand Jury Room" at the Clay County Courthouse on 9 a.m. Oct. 18.
Management at KCTV5 has turned over the subpoena to our attorneys. We do not know what this development means in this case, including what a grand jury could be considering.
At least two other media outlets reported receiving on Monday grand jury subpoenas from the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
KANSAS CITY, Mo.—
Monday marks the seventh day of the search for 10-month-old Lisa Irwin. Police found a receipt from the Festival Foods Store at I-35 & Chouteau during one of their searches. It gives investigators an idea of Lisa's mother, Deborah Bradley was doing hours before the child disappeared. FOX 4's Eric Burke has the latest on the search for the missing baby.
The mother of missing baby Lisa Irwin is preparing to be charged in connection with her baby's disappearance, according to a family member who says she thinks that an arrest is "inevitable."
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A well has been discovered under a deck in a backyard near the Irwin home and fire crews are working to access it.
Crews have started disassembling the deck to gain access to the well. A tripod has been setup to give crews better access.
North Brighton Avenue is closed in this area.
On the news they mentioned something about a handy man? Was he with her that day?
Agreed. The mum's been mauled enough. Amazing how buying some wine and party plates can be turned into a black mark on someone's reputation.
What more do we know about the well and the Moms lover? Could this have been an accident while the Mom was drunk and the boyfriend helped bury the little girl instead of facing the truth to the authorities?
Do you think that the well will be the location?
