The mother of 11-month-old Lisa Irwin is reported to have spent several hours smoking cigarettes and drinking 5 to 10 glasses of wine on the night the little Kansas City, Mo., girl disappeared from her home.
According to the Kansas City Star, 25-year-old Deborah Bradley, the mother of little Lisa sat on her front stoop with a neighbor for several hours, as she smoked and drank 5 to10 glasses of wine on the night she last saw her daughter.
Reportedly, Bradley was so intoxicated it is hard to say if she monitored the child before falling asleep around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 3.
The little Kansas City girl’s father, 29- year-old Jeremy Irwin, would have typically been at home, especially since he was employed as an electrician during the day. He arrived home from work at 2:30 p.m., but was scheduled to report to work later that afternoon to a local Starbucks, where he had taken a job to help supplement his income.
It is reported that Bradley, accompanied by her brother, Phillip Netz, decided to make a trip to a nearby store in order to pick up baby supplies and a box of wine. Irwin had not yet left for work at Starbucks and remained at home with baby Lisa and her half-brothers, who were 5 and 8 years of age at the time.
Upon returning home at about 5 p.m., Bradley's brother, Netz, is reported to have left, and so did Irwin, who departed for work sometime later.
Next door neighbor Samantha Brando decided to stop over for a visit at the Irwin house, along with her 4-year-old daughter. The daughter soon began to play with Lisa's brothers.
According to reports, Bradley decided to put Lisa in her crib at around 6:40 p.m., while her neighbor, Brando, went to the store to purchase her own liquor.
Brando returned around 7:00 p.m. and the two women sat on the front stoop, while they smoked, talked and drank well into the night.
By around 10:30 p.m., Bradley was so intoxicated, after consuming 5 to 10 glasses of wine, she decided she would go to bed. Brando departed.
At bed time, the boys decided to sleep with Bradley. It was reported by the Kansas City Star that the door to Lisa’s room was also closed at this instance, due to previous concerns that she might have been awakened by the noise emanating from outside.
Having finished working at 3:45 a.m., Irwin headed home. Arriving, he reportedly noticed the front door unlocked and the lights on. Upon passing the boys' room he noticed that the older boy was in his bunk bed, he later saw the younger boy asleep with Bradley.
Stepping into his bedroom, he asked Bradley why the lights were on and the door unlocked, but she had no explanation.
Deciding to check on Lisa, he stepped into her room, which was now opened, only to discover that his daughter was missing.
He reportedly quickly asked Bradley the whereabouts of his little girl, but she said she did not know. Accordingly, a panicked Irwin rushed across to his neighbor, Brando, and pounded on her door.
Stepping out, a surprised Brando had no knowledge of the whereabouts of the little girl.
According to the Kansas City Star, Irwin, having discovered that his home cell phones were missing, decided to call police on his work cell phone. Little Lisa was gone.
