I feel it is time to write a post about Baby Lisa Irwin who was reported missing by her father, Jeremy Irwin, in the wee hours of Oct 4th. Jeremy returned home from a night shift around 4 am on that date to find all the lights on in his house and the front door unlocked. He also said that the screen was pushed in on the bedroom window of Lisa’s room. Lisa was not in her crib. Jeremy roused Lisa’s mother and a quick search of their home did not turn up Lisa. That is when Jeremy called 911.
When we first learned of Baby Lisa, we watched a very distraught Deborah before the cameras, pleading for the safe return of her, then 10 month old baby.
Jeremy stood very quietly by Deborah’s side as she begged and cried so hard, she was barely coherent but did most of the talking.
Our hearts were breaking for this couple. Jeremy and Deborah have two other children, from different unions, and Deborah said she and Jeremy had plans to marry in the near future. Now it seemed their happy little world was falling apart, their precious baby Lisa was gone.
As the days passed and updates came pouring in, we found out that Deborah failed, not one but two, polygraph tests. I put this down to her being so emotionally distraught but later I was proven wrong. It seems that Deborah was not being completely truthful. With permission from Jeremy and Deborah, Law Enforcement searched Lisa’s bedroom and other areas of the Irwin household but some locations of the home were off limits to LE searching. We were not aware of that fact until today just why Deborah and Jeremy’s bedroom, in particular, was a restricted area and the Irwin’s didn’t want it searched.
During their search of the Irwin home, LE found a receipt from a Food Festival store and after contacting the store, the following surfaced.
Once the surveillance video was made known, Deborah decided to fess up to the fact that she got drunk the night that Lisa went missing. She thinks she may have passed out. She related that her neighbor visited and they shared some wine. Deborah said she drank 5 glasses of wine. My question is, if she blacked out, how does she know she only drank 5 glasses of wine? Was this a blackout of convenience so she would have an excuse for what really took place during her binge?
When you view the above video, you will note that a wealthy benefactor has paid for the services of a Private Investigator, Bill Stanton, a retired NY police officer to come aboard the Irwin case. You will also learn that a high profile lawyer, Joe Tacopina, along with a local attorney are now representing Deborah and Jeremy.
We had some breaking news in the Baby Lisa case today. Maybe this will help lead us to what really happened to that baby. You can read about today’s events here….
Lots of information has been posted at Jonathon’s Coffee Café by our contributors re this case, if you wish to read there.
Folks, let’s hope this case is not a repeat of the three-ring-circus that we have been involved with over the past three years. Caylee did not get her justice, well yet anyway, let’s hope Baby Lisa will get hers.
