Skip to comments.Baby Lisa's Mom: I Was Drunk When She Vanished
Posted on 10/17/2011 5:39:02 PM PDT by truthkeeper
In the latest twist in the case of a missing Kansas City infant, the childs mother admitted that she was drunk on the night of her babys disappearance and expects to be arrested.
Breaking a nine-day silence, Deborah Bradley, the mother of missing 10-month-old Lisa Irwin, told NBC News about her behavior on the night of Baby Lisas disappearance and her fear of possibly being arrested given the nature of the latest questioning by investigators.
Judging on how the questioning went, thats kind of the fear that I have, Bradley told NBCs Peter Alexander in an exclusive interview alongside the babys father, Jeremy Irwin, that aired on TODAY Monday. The main fear is that if they arrest me, people are going to stop looking, and Ill never see her again, and Ill never know what happened.

On or off the Baby Lisa pinglist, let me know.
I doubt the kid vanished.
The mom’s not ready to own the responsibility yet.
Earlier today, the police took dogs to the home of the neighbors the family was staying with.
This afternoon, they supposedly took trashbags out of the grandparents house.
Don’t know what all this means yet.
Sounds like the cops don’t think it was a random kidnapping by a stranger. The cops have to be getting frustrated.
I sure hope that this isn’t another one of those new “the justice system worked” deals where they find a few bones wrapped in duct tape and some fool on a gaseous jury says, “Aw heck judge! Mom must be innocent! Day ain’t no body!”
Oh, please keep me on all your ping lists.
Poor baby...I saw the Mom last night on Fox News...and she looked so devastated. Maybe that is because she let the baby die. I hope not...but this is looking bad.
A little baby! So much to give to the world and so innocent. Makes me cry, while I post.
Have not heard of this one yet. Is it the new one on rotation to replace the Casey Anthony crime story?
I am not sure what to think yet. I would hate to think it was accidental and they are covering it up.
I guess we may find out sooner or later.
There’s always the possibility a family member decided to ‘teach Bradley a lesson’. There have been few reports on the extended family - just a mention of the younger brother who went shopping with her; the sister who discussed her ‘pending arrest’. The boyfriend has an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend (mother of the 8 year-old). There may be in-laws (Bradley’s husband’s kin) - we have no idea who they are or where these people live and how much interaction (feuding) exists.
If she was drunk, and still an accident, I’m guessing she may have suffocated it by mistake.
Ah. The good ol’ Jim Morrison defense. It’s always those pesky Routine Blackouts.
Is this going to be a replay of Casey Anthony?
It was reported she was also doing serious pharmaceuticals.
What “it” did she suffocate?
I watched her interview with Megyn Kelly today. She may be totally innocent, but it still smells ‘fishy’. Nothing seems to make sense in this case.....as the parents admit. So many contradictions. I still don’t know who was watching the children while she was buying the wine, baby wipes and baby food. The dogs that didn’t bark is an enigma.
The police seem to be playing a game with her. Said she made a call from her cell phone at 2:30 that morning, but her cell phone was blocked from out going calls because they hadn’t paid their bill.
Her tears and remorse look real, but are they?
Please add me to your ping list.
add me, would ya? :)
Another really sad one. I guess we need to hope the child was kidnapped—she might still be alive if so. If not...well, it looks like one of the parents did something horrid.
Probably not, the mother isn’t out hootin’ it up at the hot body contests.
I saw her interview today and she said, yes she has blackouts “like everybody does when they drink.”
so she is lying about what happened with her drinking and now this??doesn’t look very good for her.
Please put me on your baby Lisa ping list.
Lord above, but this just keeps getting more bizarre by the day. I would think that no one would have a problem with a non-nursing mom having a glass of wine or three at the end of an exhausting day, but to be so blotto to not remember the last time you checked on your child is neglect at best.
Even though she was drunk, and possibly high, she’s still a mom.
I can easily imagine a scenario where the mom either rolled on top the child or, while the mom cuddled with the child and passed out, the child slipping into a bad position and the mom was incapable of responding.
I agree with you, Mom does look devastated. I can't help but wonder if she was so drunk maybe she passed out the child had an accident? In any event, something's rotten in Denmark, IMO.
It appears so...there may be an arrest soon.
So far. There may be parallel things going on though. Now she’s claiming she was drunk when her baby went missing? How many different stories will she come up with?
The mom sounded so sincere. I'm such a bad judge of character...but...SHE SOUNDS HEARTBROKEN!
Another reason (and I “get” we don't want too much police interference) I feel for the cops.
I could never do their job and am grateful that some have the strength to do it.
My odd guess: If it was his first and only night shift....Some creep at his work wanted to take the baby to sell it. Thought it would be an opportune time. Probalby not the way it went down. The cell phone call and then all 3 phones going missing is a bad sign Mom and Dad are the perps.
Uggg. A little baby!
You are on. I also heard about the call made from one of the cell phones at 2:38 a.m. Dad arrived home from work at 4:00 a.m., FWIW.
If the baby is dead, you got to hope mommy did it.
You are on.
If the mom did do something accidentally, she should have come clean.
The law tends to be lenient in such cases.
I think this woman was so wasted that she might have smothered baby Lisa accidentally..it has happened, mother is intoxicated, and ends up falling asleep..the father comes home(Just look at his face during the interview with Megyn today, he has totally zoned out, he knows what happened!) finds his wife passed out and baby Lisa dead and disposes the body. It is possible that is what happened. No way did some random person stroll inside the house, kidnap the child, and oh yeah, have enough time to take all the cell phones in the house(Taking cell phones makes NO sense, as they can always get the phone records without needing the phones)
The report I’d heard said that she had also taken pills for anxiety attacks twice that day.
I also have a sad and creepy feeling that something like that may have happened. Horrible if true.
The phone company does not have the pictures.
I still think dad knows something. Don’t trust him at all. So many questions, so few answers.
I have worked a couple accidental deaths that were exactly like that.
Mom lays baby down with her, then rolls over on the baby and suffocates it, all in an either drug or alcohol induced stupor. Truly sad.
Its the first thing that popped in my head when she said she was drunk, then I saw the look on the father’s face, he hardly said a word..he knows exactly what happened. It’s possible she has no idea she accidentally killed her own child
Or more likely... guilt-ridden... or both.
She said she takes anxiety medication. Combine that with alcohol - not good.
I wonder if the baby had an overdose of the Zany pills or what ever you call them.
If you all remember, Dad said Mom was asleep on their bed with her son when he came home after 4:00 a.m. I wonder if the baby had ALSO been on the bed...
I think I’m already on the Baby Lisa ping list. If so, thank you!
Not an expert, but if she consumed 5-10 glasses of wine, and if she had medication in her system... if she breast feeds the baby (don’t know, but imagine she was), is the baby in danger of poisoning? How quickly would the alcohol/medication transfer to the baby’s milk. Perhaps this would cause sudden death.
It is sad.
I could see that if the baby was younger- at 10 months I would bet the baby would not just get smothered, 10 month olds are capable of moving their head, neck, shoulders easily- squirming- or pitching a major fit when in a bad spot. Most are even walking or about to- pretty mobile and vocal anyway at that age.
Not another Casey Anthony situation?
I can’t see her being the type of person who would go into a drunken raise and beat the child to death, but she might get drunk enough to pass out on the child and the child can’t do anything about it.
Sometimes SSRIs are given for anxiety
