SHAWNEE, Kan. - The FBI confirms the search of a Johnson County landfill was connected to the case of a 10-month-old missing Kansas City girl. More than a dozen law enforcement officers searched the Deffenbaugh Industries Johnson County landfill in white protective suits. By a little before 2 p.m. CDT, they had cleared the scene without appearing to have taken anything from the landfill. An FBI spokeswoman confirmed what NBC Action News first reported, that the search is in connection to the case of Lisa Irwin, who was reported missing Tuesday morning.

There are several landfills on the MO side. Something must have led the police to this one, way on the other side of town, in Kansas.
I read on another site that Jeremy Irwin is not the baby’s father and that the actual father didn’t know of Lisa’s existence until contacted by the cops. Anybody else hear that? Why would she have his last name? This gets stranger and stranger, if true.
Sad, but in cases like this it seems it’s almost always the parents. I thought it was kind if fishy to begin with. I mean who snatches a baby AND takes the time to hunt down and steal all the cellphones?
It is possible the baby was handed out the window and the phones were taken to slow down any calls for help.
I heard there were three cellphones, but only two were taken. If it was one of the family, why not dispose of all three phones?
I'd rather think the baby is alive somewhere and can be returned. If I recall, Elizabeth Smart's father was the suspect, when in fact she was abducted.
Well, the mother said the three cell phones were on the kitchen counter, so it wouldn’t have been hard to just pick them up. However, I have heard reports that her cell phone had a 2:30 am call. Haven’t heard any details of who was called or where call was made. Not sure what to think.
“If I recall, Elizabeth Smart’s father was the suspect, when in fact she was abducted.”
And, her story is such a big story to a great extent because of how rare the conditions of her kidnapping were.
I don’t know a lot about body language but the father (or whomever we saw with the mother) sure looks guilty. Have a feeling the mother is terrified of him. Father have any history of violence??
Seriously. That is one creepy dude. Just stared into the camera the whole time. I am not even sure if he blinked.
The story makes it sound like the baby was home alone?
I thought the opposite, with the Mom talking nonstop this morning and the dad not saying a word, that the Mom had perhaps accidentally done something, panicked and texted and they had to get rid of the phones due to the texts. Still, the phone company might be able to generate something, like the numbers and the times of any calls or texts.
oh and the other thing. Why accuse the parents with no evidence?
Of course they are going to clam up. And yes, the police of course suspect who she is living with, you have to. But not to the point of making them clam up. You gotta do a little Columbo on ‘em............act like you believe them while their story falls apart.
Well, I have no way of knowing what evidence the cops have. Obviously they would get cell phone records and search the home. Probably would look for fingerprints not belonging to family members. I have heard from different sites that Lisa reportedly had a cold. Did mom give her something to make her sleep and overdosed her? I would think the cops would test the bottle the mom said she gave her in the crib. There was a report a neighbor saw a man with a baby out that night. Never heard a follow-up about that. The cops have searched the landfill twice. Why? They must have had a reason to. Were they looking for the baby or cell phones? Lots of questions.
Saw one interview this morning where the mother was asked if she was involved in the disappearance. She looked at the husband real quick before saying “no I wasn’t”. He looks guilty as hell.
I think that creep told her to cry and cry and cry....I think she’s terrified of him and will go to stay with a relative real soon (with police protection).
Not certain as to the father of the baby, it would have been Irwin, had the couple actually been married but as they are “engaged” with three children, I’m supposing that the rumor that he is NOT the baby’s father, is just that - rumor, at this point.
Lisa Irwin is the youngest of three children who live in the home. Irwin and Bradley are engaged to be married, and also have two children, 8-year-old Blake Irwin and 6-year-old Michael Bradley, from previous relationships.
The husband was at work and the police have already confirmed the fact and eliminated him as a suspect!
They didn’t even ask for a polygraph on the guy whereas the mother failed one .. miserably!
That’s assuming the event occurred at a particular time and it is confirmed. I’ll wait to see the outcome.
So, by virtue of them using his last name even though the couple aren't legally married, one would presume that he is her father, or at least thinks he is and has no reason to suspect otherwise.
Amazing to me; it is always only 'she' and her husband in glare of lights/cameras. Am wondering why no visible signs of support from her friends/family. No Grandparents, siblings, ANYbody, wanting to stand with her/them; during this critical time (and saying what a wonderful Mother she is. . .
( Usually, you see some support; zip/zero/nada for Mother, who cries; but seems, disingenuous in her demeanor, nonetheless.)
Have any 'dogs' been brought in to help? Any teams, out on search? Perhaps I missed that. But whatever. . think this child is dead or less likely, option - 'sold'. But whatever; this whole thing is horrendous by worst case probabilities.
They had dogs search a wooded area behind he home and nothing was found. Searched a landfill twice and apparently nothing found. Cops keeping a tight lip as to the 2:30 am phone call made from one if the cell phones. A relative (not sure who) has made several statements regarding the parents’ cooperation with police. At first I suspected parents, but am watching the interview with them on Fox and now I am not sure what to think. I just pray the baby is found unharmed and soon. As for the mother saying she failed the polygraph, not sure I believe it. Cops have been known to lie.
That said; could be other reasons for 'sweat'. . .and bad chart; just not too many, IMHO.
(Remember Susan whateverhernamewas, from SC after pushing her car with two sons in it; into water. Oh, she cried and cried; and it all rang hollow and she seldom, if ever, showed tears in her grief display - which by turn, reminds me of Amanda Knox! Oh well. . .another story altogether.)
Again; want to see someone else, speak on this Mother's behalf. Perhaps ex husband, might weigh in on his ex wife's personality or 'issues'. . .
Am thinking with that 2:30 am cell phone call; and perhaps some other not yet public, disclosures, that police know a bit more; what of they speak.
