Deborah Bradley admits to being drunk when baby vanished
Deborah Bradley admits to purchasing wine and consuming to enough to be drunk, but says she wasn't drunk enough to have hurt her child.
According to reports from MSNBC
, Huffington Post
and Miami Herald
, in a tearful interview on NBC's "Today" show, Deborah Bradley said she thinks she will be arrested in her 10 month old daughter's Lisa Irwin's disappearance.
Last week Kansas City TV stations obtained security video from a store showing Bradley buying wine and other items, and leaving the store with a man the family later claimed to be her brother. Bradley said she bought the wine, drank enough to be drunk that night but denied any involvement with her child's disappearance.
"No, no I don't think alcohol changes a person enough to do something like that," she said.
Deborah Bradley also changed a key point in her story: She first told police she last checked on Lisa at 10:30 p.m., but she told NBC she actually last saw her child when she put her to bed at 6:40 p.pm. She offered no explanation for her modification of the times. Family members were expected at the news conference Monday afternoon at the Bradley's' home, but it became unclear whether either her mom or dad would appear.
Sunday, military police from the Missouri National Guard joined with the FBI along with police from several departments from nearby communities in the search for Lisa in a large wooded near the family's home.
Lisa Bradley and the child's father, Jeremy Irwin, have told police that he arrived home from a night shift to discover the front door wasn't locked, the lights were blazing, a window had been tampered with and Lisa was gone. Bradley and their other two kids were asleep elsewhere in the home.
Police have already searched the family's home and neighborhood, the wooded areas, landfill and abandoned home. There are still no suspects and no leads in the case.
