Mom says she's being accused
The parents of a Missouri infant that went missing earlier this week have reportedly stopped cooperating with police.
Kansas City Police Capt. Steve Young said on Thursday that the parents of Lisa Irwin have “stopped talking to detectives” and did not give a reason for their refusal.
Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley said they put their daughter to sleep at about 10 p.m. on Monday evening, but when Irwin came home from his overnight work shift at 4 a.m. the next morning and went to check on her, he discovered Lisa was missing.
Irwin and Bradley indicated on Thursday that their cell phones had also been taken, and that there was an open window and lights were left on when they found out Lisa was gone.
Young said that the couple are currently not considered suspects.
But Bradley indicated differently during an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday.
“From the start when they’ve questioned me, once I couldn’t fill in gaps, it turned into, ‘You did it, you did it,'” Bradley said.
She added, “They took a picture down from the table and said, ‘Look at your baby! And do what’s right for her!’ I kept saying I don’t know… I just sat there.”
Bradley claimed that police also indicated that she had failed a polygraph test, and denied that her and Irwin had ended their cooperation with police.
Irwin said they simply “needed to take a break” after being “interrogated for a really long time.”
Bradley pleaded through the airwaves to her daughter’s abductor to “take her somewhere safe.”
“Take her to a church, a hospital, a fire department. Just drop her off with somebody and then leave, no questions asked. We just want our baby back,” Bradley said.
Police are asking anybody with information about the case to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
